expanding creative display errors when delivering to new asynchronous ad tags Lennox1980 4/23/12 1:41 AM

Good evening,

Last week, we replaced our previous GAM tags with newly generated Asynchronous ad tags.

We knew there'd be some amendments that had to be made to the existing expanding banners we were running, all of which were trafficked and built in the Media Mind (formerly eyeblaster) platform.

However, despite our clients re-generating iframe flights for us, there is still issues with expanding banners not appearing at all when using any of Chrome, Firefox or Safari and in IE they appear incorrectly, don't expand and position wise are corrupted.

Anyone know if there's a trick to this? At the present stage we only flight Media Mind third party expanding placements.

Cheers,

Async tags use iFrames to display the ads.  Unless the Creative you're given take this into consideration for the expandables, there will be issues.  The most common issue si that Creatives won't expand beyond the borders of the ad (due the iFrame it's in).  

Unless they're willing to fix their Creatives to work in iFrames, I'd suggest switch to GPT Sync tags instead (basically the same as GAM tags).

I'm not sure what you mean by position wise being corrupted.  I'm not sure if the not appearing is because it's expanding or something else.
