The Page Peels Creative type in NATS For Networks allows affiliates to display a thumbnail image in a selected corner of a page that automatically expands to its full size when a visitor mouses over it, along with a link to your offer(s).

Uploading a Page Peel Image

You can upload a new image to be used as a Page Peel through the Creatives Admin. Simply go to the Creatives Admin and click the "View Creatives" action icon next to the "Page Peels" creative type.

The Interactives Creative Category

On the next page, you will see a section labeled "New Page Peels Creative." Use the available "Advertisement" field to upload the image file you wish to use for your new page peel.

Adding a new Page Peel Creative

Once you have selected an image to use for your new page peel, you can define all of the other available settings for your page peel. These settings include:

  • Name - The name of your page peel ad.
  • Location - Choose which corner of the page you want your page peel to appear in.
  • Destination URL - Input the URL of the page you want the visitor to be redirected to when clicked.
  • Enabled on - Choose an offer (or all offers) that you want this page peel to be enabled for.
  • Publish Date - Input the date you want this page peel to be available from.
  • Default Group - Select an creative group to categorize your page peel under.

Once you have defined all of the available fields, click "Add Creative" to add your new Page Peel to NATS For Networks.

Your new Page Peel will now appear in the "Page Peels Creative" table, along with the other available page peels. This table provides you with the ID number, name, location, and default creative group of each page peel in NATS For Networks.

Displaying a Page Peel

In order to display your page peel creative on one of your pages, you must first download the corresponding .zip file from NATS For Networks through the Affiliate Creatives page. This .zip file will contain the image file, along with header_inc, jquery, and main scripts.

Upload these scripts to your server, and copy them into the templates you wish to display your page peel on. Make sure that you include the header_inc script (ideally in the header) before the main script in your template(s), otherwise your page peel will not display properly.

Before you can include your new Page Peel on one of your offers, you must first add a "SHOW" rule. To do so, click on the "Add a new rule" action icon next to your new page peel.

Adding a rule for your page peel

On the next page, simply add a "SHOW" type rule for the affiliate(s), commission(s), and offer(s) you want this gallery to be enabled for. You can also choose to enable this gallery for all affiliates, commissions, and offers. For more information on rules in NATS For Networks, please see our Rules wiki article.
