Banners rotating automatically instead of by refreshing browser

Post by Toolie » Sun May 22, 2022 11:58 pm

Are there any plans to make Banners able to rotate according to a schedule as opposed to relying on the refreshing of the browser? My client's advertising needs are simple, but she DOES need the banners to rotate on a specific schedule (every 20 seconds, for example).

Thoughts?

Use a gallery extension in the banner position perhaps?

We need the stats in order to sell the ads. So we'd rather that Joomla add timed rotation to the Banners feature. Please? I know I'm not the only one who wants or would use it -- I see the posts here.

The Banners component doesn't just display ads, it tracks impressions and clicks. We need to be able to keep track of both. Simply using an image rotator will not work; we need the Banners component to rotate the ads.

Is there someplace I can put in a Feature request?

See my link. It's a module that shows the Core banners.
