Google Web Designer banners in Adform
Søren
Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to work with HTML5 banner production instead of working with SWF banners. I'm forced to use Googles Web Designer Tool (https://www.google.com/webdesigner/). The reason for this is that I need to be able to upload my HTML5 banners in Google Adwords, and Googles specifications states: "Only HTML5 ads created with Google Web Designer are supported." Therefore I want to know if Adform supports HTML5 banners created in Googles Web Designer Tool?

Clicktag code for AS2 flashbanner exported to html5 via swiffy
Frederik Rafn Barfod
Dear Adform, I'm trying to make a clicktag work. But my mediaagency says it fails the Adform test. Here's the reply from Adform: Unfortunately no, as the html file is still missing Adform library and clicktag which should be added according to the instructions: (link) I can't find the AS2 clicktag code on this test & support site. Can you help? Please provide the correct code. I've been using: on (release) { getURL(_root.clickTAG, _root.landingPageTarget); } This still won't work. Thanks in …

Hosting of creative materials
Sohrab Hosseini
I'm preparing a set of dynamic creatives to run in July on Adform. The following questions: Where do we host the banners? Is this on your platform? Where do we host the XML that feeds the banners and is automatically updated daily? Do we host this on our side, or do you provide the CDN to host this? Where do we host the dynamic product images? Is this uploaded to the Adform platform? Possible via API? Where can we find documentation? Thank you

Do videobanners catch more audience/interaction than basic banners?
Ville Aaltonen
Hi, I have been wondering this for a while and can't find any good source for information for this, so I thought that I'd ask you: Do videobanners catch more audience/interaction than basic banners? Do you have any good general statistics about this? Videobanners are usually a lot harder (takes more time) to produce than "basic" html 5 banners. Is it worth it? I know that I'm a bit black and white saying this, of course the creative is the key in any production, but I have a strong feeling that …

Is there a way to compress java script libraries?
Roman
Hi, we mainly work with Flash to create html5 Ads. The files created from flash usually load some JS libraries from code.createjs.com (like tween.js, movieclip.js etc.). We recently got the information that it is actually forbidden (or more like recommended?) to load external scripts. Now I have the problem that those scripts together weigh approximately 165kb (after uploading a banner including only those scripts and optimize-downloading it again). The ZIP file containing the banner however i…

Save a project (?)
Juris
Im trying to learn this tool, trying to understand, how it works. The first thing i cant find is SAVE ... How could it be? Is it a joke? Could indeed be a software (even online) without possibility to save a project? Then how can i do some revisions, if my client asks for it? Can i just do the design work and publish it, or download a ready banner? Without any option to save a project ... Even if i close my browser - all my work is lost immediatelly. Do i something wrong? The second thing is rel…

Inline SVG Masks not working when Banner is shown in HTML5 Studio Preview
Jacob Mellin
Hi, I have created some banners that use inline SVG with masks. The SVG is dynamically injected using JavaScript. The banners work fine in all browsers I tested locally, but when I upload them in HTML5 Studio, the mask stops working, meaning it is not visible in the preview window. When I export the banners in HTML5 Studio and open the modified files on my local machine, the masks are back and working again. The preview window uses an iframe to embed the banner. When I open the target URL of the…

Firefox not showing special characters
Tiziano
Hi, When I upload a HTML banner to the platform, special characters don't display properly in Firefox (for example é, à û,...) When I view the banner directly in the browser, without the platform, everything shows up fine. I opened up the console and see there is an error saying the charset is not declared, but the HTML file definitely has it defined as UTF-8. The work around is to encode the text, but as you'll understand it's easy to forget it :-) Is there a way to solve this problem?

How to check if banner is visible
John
Hello, I've made some HTML5 banners with an animation in it. Is it possible to start this animation when the banner is in view? I have tried it with the getState function, but that also gives 'visible' back when the banner isn't visible in my viewport. This is my code; [code]var state = dhtml.getState(); if (state === 'visible') { _function(); } else { dhtml.sharedEvents.on('changed:state', function (s) { if (s === 'visible') { _function(); } }); }[/code] Thnx for the help.
