For the few years I have started using smf script for my forum Simpleads mod is one of the versatile lucky mod that I have loved.

Not as if it's the only good ads mod on the smf custom site but I have personally love the mod 'cos of many things you can do with it.

1. You can add your wibiya javascript code to your smf using simpleads mod
2. you can add flag counter javascript / html code using simpleads mod
3. You can add language Translation script (without using Language translation mod) using simpleads mod, this is necessary if you want some featured flags to show coupled with a drop down menu to help complete aliens understand you support their languages
4. You can add free php chat script (open source) using simpleads mod
5. You can add any script at all using simpleads mod

Simpleads mod comes with many option helping you to place your advert just at the very place you want it placed .

With simpleads mod you can as well run your own adverts on smf platform as it gives you the option to automatically control the time and number of impression you need for your adverts.

google adsense , ad dynamo , adbrite , bidvertiser and any other adnetwork can as well 
be used with simpleads mod .

It is actually a nice mod but the developer decided to give it out without demanding you place his credit link in the footer or any where in your smf ('cos nowadays nobody takes a site with more than 8 credits links seriously  :Dfact)

you can view the screen shot below for possible position and option you can use for your simpleads mod

I forgot to add this initially perhaps  you have simpleads mod , admod , sdk admod or any other mod and wish to centralize your add instead of placing it at the left or right you can simple use this code to instruct your add to be placed right in the center header , footer or body of your smf forum . the code ti use is

<div style="margin:auto; text-align:center;"> adsense here </div>

that's because you already had the admanagement installed prior to trying out this mod, you need manually uninstall the admanagement mod or any other mod related to adsplacement like the "global header and footer" mod

That is still cause by the admanagement mod bro, go to the mod page and read about manual uninstall of that very mod, follow the manual guide to get all of it's components removed.

How do i upgrade it because before it happened,i upgraded its latest version.
go to http://download.simplemachines.org/ and download the large upgrade file, extract it to a folder and upload all to your forum root directory. the only file from the large upgrade directory you should ignore is the upgrade.php file. hope this helps
