Innovative Ads After First PostI decided to make this while creating another modification as I have seen this requested many times, I Google'd it finding details on what template to edit plus I searched here on vbulletin.org and only found old "modifications" which were actually just tutorials and none were actual products that did most of the work for you .
Ad after first post on very page or as some describe it, Ad after first post in a thread - This modification places two ads in a post like container below the first post on every page in a thread. Fully customizable to allow all sorts of ad codes such as Google Adsense, OpenX Ads, and various others along with the possibility for the user to design his own images and link them to the appropriate content. Users can also customize CSS or remove the DIV codes to use show only one ad or any sort of advertisement and display any form of content other than ads!

8.24.2010: Version 1.0 Created
In the postbit_legacy_ads_after_firstpost template please find:
<vb:comment> Left Ad Code Below this Commented out line </vb:comment>
Left Ad Image/Code 1 needs to be placed here, no larger than 260 pixels in height.
<vb:comment> Left Ad Code Above this Commented out line </vb:comment>
<vb:comment> Right Ad Code Below this Commented out line </vb:comment>
Right Ad Image/Code 2 needs to be placed here, no larger than 260 pixels in height.
<vb:comment> Right Ad Code Above this Commented out line </vb:comment>
As you can see I have added in commented code to let you know where your custom ads codes need to be placed, very simple.
*Remember to enable the mod after installing otherwise it won't show!
AdminCP > Settings > Options > Innovative Ads After First Post and set to Yes.
*Attention- Please view the first page as the 2nd and 3rd (Added: Post #'s 6 & 7 also contain info on how to customize!) posts were reserved and contain additional information to help you customize this in various ways.
What can you expect in the next version?
- No template edits, Ads codes will be entered into the admin control panel area where the mod is currently enabled/disabled. If you have a custom style CSS changes will still be required if you notice any position issues etc.
