Creating a page takeover

Hi There,

I can't find any info or help on this so am struggling to work out how to create it - I basically need to create a page takeover with the following requirements:
- Polite load
- 960px X 1000px
- Animation waits 3sec before playing
- Close button
- Takeover completely disappears when animation finishes
- No replay of PTO when done

Any help or pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Ben

    Hi Ben

    After reviewing your requirements further we believe that a Floating Ad is what you are looking for as it addresses each of your points below.
    https://platform.mediamind.com/Online...

    - Polite load
    * All Mediamind rich ads loads the rich content after page load

    - 960px X 1000px
    * You may resize the Template Floating Ad Flash movie size to 960x1000

    - Animation waits 3sec before playing
    * This should be coded into the creative. You can leave the first frames blank. (Floating ads are transparent by default)

    - Close button
    * Is available in the Floating Ad Template which uses EB.CloseAd("User")
    https://platform.mediamind.com/Online...

    - Takeover completely disappears when animation finishes
    * You can fire EB.CloseAd("Auto") when the animation finishes

    - No replay of PTO when done
    * Frequency capping can be set by the trafficker once the ad has been uploaded into the platform and attached to the placement

  • Thanks guys,

    Yes, while I started with a polite banner, I'm now using an expandable from a 300x250 that will also be on the page.

    Your links look helpful so will go over them this morning.

    Thanks heaps!

    Cheers

  • OK, so have sorted most of it but can't figure out how to:
    - Delay the Panel1 auto expand for 3 seconds
    - Preload the move asset contained in Panel1 during those 3 seconds

    I realise there are no built-in Mediamind functions but after searching around for past few hours, I can't find actionscript snippets that work, or that I understand - sorry about this!

    In this scenario, I'm guessing that the delay and preloading scripting needs to be in the 300x250 initial load - right?

    That way the:
    - 300x250 loads with the publisher's home page
    - Panel 1 is delayed for 3 seconds
    - The move in Panel1 pre-loads during those 3 seconds

    Sorry if this is easy, I just can't find any code snippets that achieve this - any help would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

  • Was just reading this one and I'm keen to know how this project ended up. If I'm reading this right you are putting a preloaded video into a Page Takeover??

    I didn't think you are allowed to put vids in auto expanding Full Page Takeovers??
