I have moved the download files of PHPads and PHPurl back onto Blondish.net after being contacted numerous times that the free file hosting went over bandwidth and they could not download my PHP scripts.
As a refresher, PHPads is my simple banner ad management script. PHPurl is my short URL script.
I originally pulled them off the site because they drained my bandwidth as they got more popular. Now that I can handle the downloads better since I upgraded my server, I guess it was high time I moved them back.
I keep having a few questions about each script, so I thought I would take the time to address some of them here.
Question 1: Would I create an option to allow for the banner to rotate continuously, rather than by each page load?
Answer 1: No. The script was meant to be simple and I do not see any huge updates for a while as I have been busy with other projects.
Question 2: I cannot log into my PHPads install – what is wrong?
Answer 2: You probably failed to specify the path or you messed with the ads.dat file. Re-install and follow the directions exactly as it says.
Question 3: I heard PHPads was a bit faulty on security because it allows a 666 CHMOD.
Answer 3: If you are really worried, do not download. I do however need to mention that you should not be installing PHPads on your root and you should use your htaccess file to restrict access to that directory.
Question 1: Are you going to add a visitor login so users can monitor their link stats.
Answer 1: Not at this time. Perhaps in the future when I have time. Right now the admin can see what URLs have been shortened.
Question 2: I am having a hard time designing, can you help me?
Answer 2: I do not offer hands on work for free. I already conveniently designed a layout to go with the script. You are welcomed to inquire about customizing your PHPurl version.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask. If it is installation problems, most of the questions I have gotten stem from not installing correctly. It is important to read the instructions carefully and follow them. I do not hop on support questions if you offer to donate. That has happened a lot in the past and after the 3rd time of this happening and not receiving a donation, I figure it is just best to take support questions when I have time.
