  1. Thanks for the confirmation on the transparent background, that makes sense and I'll be sure to set a background color going forward. Also, using border-box makes a ton of sense, can't believe I missed that. I ended up using a div within my body and accounting for my border width when creating the size, which also worked. In the future, I'll just be sure to get my resets like border-box in order before I get going on my ad. Thanks!
  2. I had a couples questions regarding border and background on html ads. I have a border on the entire body of my ad that has a 3px width and I also do not have a background color set, so it's technically transparent. The right and bottom sides of my border appear to be getting cut off in the preview of Adwords. When I uploaded to another ad server that has a light grey background in their ad preview, my ad background was that light grey instead of white. Is good practice to only set a border of 1px or less? Does anything above 1px border width get cut off when actually set live? Also, are ads typically served over a white background, is the transparent background something I should be concerned about? Thanks for any insight anyone has!
  3. This is what I expected but thanks very much for the confirmation and including the link to the Studio specifications. These will be extremely helpful if we are able to get the client to use Display & Video 360. Thanks again!
  4. I'm attempting to code an ad that uses an html form to append search parameters to my destination url. I am also trying to use a clickTag so that when the user clicks on the search button, a click is registered. I'm attempting to serve this ad in Google Adwords and another ad server called Basis DSP. Both have similar specifications on using a clickTag variable. So far, I have been unsuccessful in getting a click to register in Basis DSP. When I uploaded to the HTML5 Validator for Adwords, it passed but suggested I use the Google hosted ExitApi. Would the type of ad I'm describing be possible in the Adwords platform or would it be classified as Rich Media and need to be served in Display & Video 360? I have multiple variations of my ad where the search functionality is working but I'm still unable to get the clickTag to get tracked. Below is one code example: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> <meta name="ad.size" content="width=300,height=250"> <meta name="click.through" content="ad" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="Talbots_JobSearch_300x250.css"/> <title>Tablots | Search Jobs - 300x250</title> <script type="text/javascript"> function clickTag(){ document.getElementById("jobSearch").submit(); } window.addEventListener('keydown',function(e){if(e.keyIdentifier=='U+000A'||e.keyIdentifier=='Enter'||e.keyCode==13){if(e.target.nodeName=='INPUT'&&e.target.type=='text'){e.preventDefault();return false;}}},true); </script> </head> <body> <div id="ad" class="wrap"> <form id="jobSearch" action="https://jobs.talbots.com/index.gp" method="get" target="_blank"> <input id="method" type="hidden" name="method" value="cappportal.showPortalSearch"> <input id="sysLayoutID" type="hidden" name="sysLayoutID" value="123"> <input id="utm_source" type="hidden" name="utm_source" value="hc-bannerads"> <label for="keyword">Keyword:</label> <input id="keyword" type="text" name="keyword"> <input type="button" onclick="clickTag()" value="Search"> </form> </div> </body> </html> Looking for any guidance on using this type of search functionality in an ad and whether it's possible in Google Adwords. Any help would be much appreciated!
