  1. I was wondering if there is any documentation in regards to embedding proper clickTAGs within Native Greensock ads? Our client want to run an ad through our Trade Desk Ad Serving Platform.
  2. 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!

  4. Hello, Just spend almost the entire afternoon Googling and and browsing forums for this problem. Unfortunately without any answers thus far. So I'm hoping somebody here could help me figure this out. Recently I've created HTML5 banner ads for a clients using Cory Hudsons AdStarter FLA's (version 3.0) for Adobe Animate. See this post and link to the template file: https://theblog.adobe.com/creating-html5-ads-with-animate-cc-google-html5-ad-templates/ The publishing agency that now manages the campaign in DoubleClick has noticed abnormal differences in in CTR rates. It looks like the clickTag is fired more often or double specifically for banners that are being deployed on mobile. Both Google and the publishing agency have checked the campaign. Only thing they could think of is a problem with the clickTag. My questions: Is it possible that there’s something in the code of the template that causes the counter to double up the click count? And only when the ad is viewed clicked/touched upon on a mobile device? ( Apparently CTR rates are normal for non mobile devices while I've used the same template for all the banners) Can there be any other reason why clicks are abnormally high on mobile devices compared to desktop? Some info that might be useful: I did not manually alter any code, except for the exit url Zip files passed all the test from the DoubleClick Html 5 validator All the banners were created using the above mentioned template (And thus use the same clickTag code) Unfortunately I’m not an expert at coding (that's why I used the templates mentioned above) I would really appreciate any help. Thanks!
  5. Hello guys! Some bad news coming from Google Adwords. "Beginning December 11, Google will no longer support HTML5 ads with clickability modified using Tap Area or Javascript ExitApi.exit()." https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6335679?authuser=0 Also all of you can noticed that TweenMax no longer available as an asset from internal Google library. Could greensokers give any clearance to this topic? Thanks in advance!
  6. Hiya, Is it possible to have the CTA button in a banner to have effects, when hovered and clicked and also to have the BG_Exit as well? here is the code.: function exitClickHandler(e) { console.log('exit'); Enabler.exit('BackgroundExit'); } function ctaClickHandler(e) { console.log('ctaexit'); Enabler.exit('CTA Exit'); } function ctaMouseDown(e) { console.log('mousedown'); }); }; When the 'BackgroundExit' is z-indexed, then the CTA doesn't work, but when z-index is off Exit CTA works, but then the 'BackgroundExit' doesn't click. Can anyone help on this issue?? Cheers, Lynette
  7. Hi folks, I'm really new to all this, but from all your tips I managed to build my first timeline. However, the good old client is turning my banner into a bit of beast and I'm struggling. Think I'm out of my depth a bit, so your help would be much appreciated! I really need your help with following: 1. <button id="infoBtn"> to start my second timeline when clicked 2. <button id="closeBtn"> to go to <div id="f4"> when clicked 3. my buttons to sit above the clicktag My code is probably in a right mess – but please bear with me, I know its a bit of hack (your thoughts would be much welcomed). Anyway, heres the Codepen to all this: http://codepen.io/jimcam/pen/VKaoqQ Thanks in advanced!!!
  8. Hi Guys, I've been lurking on this forum for a while and have hit finally got to the point where I need to ask some questions. Firstly I'd like to say Hi and I really like what I've seen on this forum, I've been a full stack developer for 16 years but the banner world is fairly new to me (I did help out with some flash banners way back). The situation I'm in is I'm a tech lead, the previous front end dev used to look after the banners and the process was very adhoc. I have a freelancer with no banner experience so I'm trying to hold his hand through the process even though I don't know much more than him. I'm trying to put some processes and standards in place for banner development. For the campaign that I'm working on currently, I've tried out this Yeoman generator - BuildABanner , using the DoubleClick template. I like what I see, it's generating a nice folder structure, with nice gulp tasks and best practices (polite loading content etc). Using the DoubleClick template it makes proper use of the enabler events and it's triggering an Exit event as the clicktag. I can see in the console when I click on it that the enabler is receiving the event. Example; bgExit = document.getElementById('background_exit_ad'); //Add Event Listeners for DoubleClick addListeners = function() { bgExit.addEventListener('click', bgExitHandler, false); } bgExitHandler = function(e) { //Call Exits Enabler.exit('HTML5_Background_Clickthrough'); } I've been tasked with developing some banners built to 'doubleclick' spec but will be served on two different networks/suppliers (Cadreon and Ansible). I'm still struggling to grasp the difference between the platforms and networks etc. So I thought I'd do a test before sending it off to the media agency (so I don't look like an idiot). I tried out this DoubleClick Campaign Manager HTML5 Validator. When I validate my banner (with the above click tag) it passes all the rules except for the click tag and says that it's not present. I thought that the enabler.exit event was the best practice way to do this? When I look back at some previous banners developed by my old front end dev, he had simply referenced the enabler.js, but implemented the click tag this way, marked up in the comments as "Standard ClickTag"; Example; <html> <head> <meta name="ad.size" content="height=0,width=0"> <script src="https://s0.2mdn.net/ads/studio/Enabler.js"></script> <script> var clickTag = "http://www.google.org"; </script> </head> <body> <a href="javascript:window.open(window.clickTag)">blah</a> </body> </html> Adding this into my banner along side the exit event would be doubling up the events so as I see it - I should be using one or the other? Is this tool just stupid? I don't mind simplifying the code and doing it the generic way but it makes more sense to me as a dev to use the proper events within enabler and it would also allow me to keep the buildabanner generated code as untouched as possible. Also does anyone have any feedback on the buildabanner system itself?? Does anyone use it? Or do you use a different yeoman tool? Very keen to hear some real world feedback on this. Thanks Marty
  9. Got the lovely task of updating some banners that a vendor created. I'm only supposed to be worrying about the visual layout of the end frame, but the clickTags are coded like so: <a href="<mpvc/>http://<mpck/>" target="_blank">LEARN MORE</a> What is that "<mpvc/>...<mpck/>" business? I'm guessing its for a specific vendor, but I've never seen it before. I know our QA is going to kick it back, so I want to be able to explain it. Thanks!
  10. Hi! As discussed in this forum before Flash is dead and I have to switch to HTML5 banners. I have tried different solutions and now planing to use Flash CC html5 canvas animation until I learn how to make perfect hand coded and animated banners with Greensock. As for the background I have previously used Greensock (I think it was the same) library but after years passed without banner work I didn't use it and now in this summer I just started again with regular tween and timeline. But now my biggest problem with the change is not the file size or how to animate. I am in trouble of adding ClickTAG to the banners. I want to add it in Flash as actionscript layer but as I understand html5 canvas is using JS so I can not use old as klicktag code. What I have now is > this.button_1.addEventListener("click", fl_ClickToGoToWebPage); function fl_ClickToGoToWebPage() { window.open("ClickTag", "_blank"); } + a button in stage with instance name button_1 - but sadly this doesn't work. I know that I could add <a> link around the canvas in html but it means I have to make a new one every time when I publish again. So when you are in a rush and make some small correction in banner it can be easily forgotten. Any help much appreciated!
