A banner rotator is a container that allows you to show multiple types of content (banners, images and/or HTML content) in the same area on a web page without having to use multiple files or coding. Each new page view triggers a different item from your rotator.
To use it, you only need to copy/paste the banner rotator embed code just like a Youtube video. Banner rotator embed codes use Flash/compatible HTML for mobile devices and are great for websites using content management systems such as Wordpress or Joomla.
With a banner rotator you can manage the content displayed on a web page even if you don't have access to the code. Once your programmer installs the embed code, you can manage that yourself, directly from Bannersnack.
It's easy, just follow the steps below. Important: Make sure that the items you add are the same size as the rotator. For example, if you want to create a 300x250 rotator, you must add 300x250 items. Otherwise, your items will appear distorted.
How large do you want your rotator to be? Choose a width and height of minimum 30 pixels and maximum 2800 pixels.
You can add banners from your account, upload your own PNG/JPG/GIF/SWF files or copy/paste or write in HTML code.
Type in or copy/paste the URL to which you want to direct users to. You can add a different link for each of the items. Save and you’re ready.
