This is a design to implement better monetization options for Pro users and their sites. See also the blog post at:

Admins will be able to place HTML ad code on his/her sites. The ad code should be provided (generated) by any of the supported ad networks. E.g. AdSense would provide the following snippet:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-1234567890";
/* 300x250, created 3/17/10 */
google_ad_slot = "1234567890";
google_ad_width = 300;
google_ad_height = 250;
<script type="text/javascript"

Technically, there should be a panel within Site Manager for each site, that would allow to:

  • Paste ad code for each of locations:
    • above content
    • below content
    • above side bar
    • below side bar
    • below footer
    • <custom label> to be displayed by a special ad module
  • Set visibility of the ads, either to all visitors, or only those not logged in to Wikidot (preferred)

Ad code will be recognized based on the series of patterns, so that only supported HTML code will be allowed. This will prevent placing arbitrary HTML code, that could lead to XSS.

Supported ad networks should include:

Advertising panel will be available only to Master Administrators with Pro Lite, Pro and Pro+ subscriptions.

Support for the networks will be added gradually, based on user feedback.
