The Creatives Admin lets you manage your creatives, which include banners, hosted galleries, downloadable creatives, and feeds. These tools are all integrated into NATS For Networks for easy usage.

Creatives Admin

The Creative Categories list shows information about each creative category integrated in NATS For Networks. To the right of each creative category are several action icons:

  • The Move Category Down and Move Category Up icons change the order each category is displayed on the Affiliate Creatives page
  • The Edit Creative Category icon lets you change the category name and description
  • The Disable Creative Category deletes the creative category from the list

Each creative category contains one or more individual creative types, consisting of banners, hosted galleries, downloadable creatives (such as mailers and downloadable content), feeds. For information on how to add a new creative type, please see our Add New Creative Type wiki article.

To the right of each creative type are several action icons:

  • The View Creatives icon lets you add or edit creatives. For more information, see the Adding and Editing Creatives section below
  • The Move Type Down and Move Type Up icons change the order each category is displayed on the Affiliate Creatives page
  • The Edit Creative Type icon lets you change the creative type's description, template, and fields
  • The Duplicate Creative Type icon duplicates an creative type.
  • The Delete Creative Type icon removes the creative type from the list. You can see deleted creative types by clicking the Show Deleted Types link

For information on the individual creative types offered in NATS For Networks, please see our Creative Types wiki article.

Adding and Editing Creatives

Click the View Creatives icon to view all creatives in the creative type you would like to add to or edit. To the left of each creative is a thumbnail of the ad (if applicable), with several action icons to the right of each creative.

  • The Edit Creative icon lets you change the creative, as well as the text/description of them
  • The Edit Groups icon allows you to add or delete Creative groups, which help to categorize your creatives. You can also choose to associate the selected creative with that group
  • The Add a New Rule icon lets you specify for which affiliates this creative is available, as well as for which commission and offer this creative is available. For more information, see the Creative Display Rules section below
  • The Delete Creatives icon removes that creative from the list. You can see deleted creatives by clicking the Show Deleted Creatives link

Edit Creatives

For information on the individual creative types offered in NATS For Networks, please see our Creative Types wiki article.

For more information on adding new creatives, please see our Add New Creatives wiki article.

Creative Display Rules

Click the Add a New Rule icon to add or remove an creative display rule. Here you will be able to determine whether or not an creative will be available for specific affiliates, commissions, and offers. For more information on NATS For Networks rules, please see our Rules wiki article.

There are three types of rules. A matching Show rule shows the creative to selected affiliates. A matching Hide rule hides the creative from affiliates -- Hide rules override all matching Show rules. Ignore rules are skipped by NATS For Networks.

Creative Display Rules

Adding Downloadable Creatives

To add a new downloadable creative, go to the Creatives Admin, choose a Downloadable Creative Type, and click the View Creatives icon. On the next screen, fill in the form with your new creative's information and content, then click Add Creative. Add the HTML for the gallery in the large text box and choose the offer on which you would like it to be enabled. After adding an creative, the action icons let you edit it, assign it to a group, change which affiliates and offers can access it, and delete it.

File Upload Issues

If you are having problems with creative file uploads (content zips, banner files, thumbnails) you may need to update your PHP settings. The default PHP settings will limit the size of files you can upload, and will need to be modified to allow the files you are using.

Note: 'M' stands for megabytes

post_max_size => 8M => 8M
upload_max_filesize => 2M => 2M

If you are uploading 10M files, both of these values should be > 10M. Additional settings that could cause problems are

file_uploads -- must be enabled.
max_execution_time  --must be long enough to allow the files to be uploaded and processed.
memory_limit -- must be ATLEAST as large as your post_max_size and upload_max_filesize settings.  This affects all of php, and may need to be set higher than the others for other reasons.

The above code is an example of PHP code that will help you get around these file size limits.

Adding Thumbnails

In NATS For Networks, you can choose the creative's thumbnail when you create or edit an creative. Upload the file you would like your thumbnail to be, or enter a URL from an image host of your choice.
