Re: advertising service and appgenarator

I have another question regarding the app generator and advertising. What id do I need to input into the field. It says input advertising ID, but there are a few different IDs when creating a app in the ad service. There is my general profile ID, a Site ID, and a Zone ID. Which one gets inputted?

Re: advertising service and appgenarator

So I figured out the answer to my question.

 

You need to create a new app in the BB advertising portal. Make sure you select webworks app. Then use the 'Site ID' to enter into the feild provided in the App Generator. 

 

That's it!

Re: advertising service and appgenarator

I am trying to figure out what you mean by appgenerator and mippin, Isn't it the same? Don't really see options for webworks either. BBAppgenerator is made by mippin(powered by) am I missing another appgenerator out there?

Re: advertising service and appgenarator

No your correct their the same. In the ads section it give u an option to be webworks but is app gen a web works app though. I set mine as a normal app and I have another one I set as a webworks and saw no difference. Based on os 5,6,7 thee bb10 apps have not been pushed yet.

Re: advertising service and appgenarator

Are you referring to account on adservices when you generate the ID?
