    I am thinking of buying OIO publisher for my wordpress website. The website also has 1 forum (message board) and 10 blogs - all on one domain. The website is powered by a premier wordpress theme called the onyx portal, the blogs are powered by a different wordpress theme and the forum is powered by bbPress. My question is can I install oio publisher as a plugin on this domain so that the ads will appear throughout the domain - i.e ads appearing on the blogs and the forum too - as well as on the main part of the website?

    Ok, the main question I'd have regarding that setup is, what are all the different blogs powered by?

    * a single Wordpress install
    * multiple Wordpress installs
    * a single WPMU install

    Without knowing the above, what I can tell you is that you'll be able to show the ads throughout the whole site (or other sites, if you wished) using a single OIO install.

    What the answer to the above question will determine is whether you'd be better off installing OIO as a Wordpress plugin, or as a standalone app.

    If all the blogs are powered by a single Wordpress install, then you can use OIO as a Wordress plugin. If it's using WPMU or multiple Wordpress installs, the best route (so that you only have to install OIO once) would be to set it up as a standalone app, then use javascript to display the ads on all parts of the site.

    In that case, you need just install it as a Wordpress plugin, then use the standard php output functions to show ads on any part of the site that uses Wordpress.

    I'm not too familiar with bbpress, but I presume the Wordpress engine isn't loaded when bbpress loads. So for the forum sections, the easiest solution is to use the javascript option to display ads - although there is a php integration guide available for non-Wordpress apps if you prefer.

    This is a great pre-sale format. i have a question related to using OIO on one site as well. is there a way to select which ads are running on specific pages of the wordpress site. or particularly to assign one ad to one category and another ad to another category.

    OIO does have an an inbuilt ad zone category selector (see the advanced settings section). This means that you can assign an ad to a Wordpress category and it will only display in that category (and any posts in that category). This saves you from having to create a new ad zone for every category - it can all be done through a single zone.

    For other pages (non-category), you'd need to create a zone for that page. For example, you could create a zone and call it "Home Page Ads" - then display that zone only on the home page using Wordpress conditionals.
