Advertising banner

The "Avertising banner" module allows you to configure images to be displayed on list pages in addition to the regular results.

The banners are in the search result parallel to the rest of the result. The frontend can decide freely about the sorting in the search result.

Creating an advertising banner

Position

Where in the results list should the image appear.

Language

For which language should the banner be displayed?

List type

Here you can set for which type of article list the advertising space list should be used. You can choose between: Search result, category list and manufacturer list.

Only for list type "Search result": Where should the banner be displayed?

Here you can configure whether the banner should appear in the autosuggest, the search or both.

Only for list type "Search result": Identifier

The identifiers can be used to control when Makaira adds a banner to a search result. The type of identifier depends on the selected list type:

  • For the "Search result" type: a comma-separated list of relevant search terms. Upper/lower case as well as spaces at the beginning and at the end of the entry are ignored. Umlauts/special characters are only found in exact spelling. The use of multiple words as search terms is also supported.
  • For the "Category list" type: the ID of the category.
  • For the "Manufacturer list" type: the ID of the manufacturer.

Title

Becomes the "old" attribute of the <img/> tag.

ImageMobile

The image to be displayed in the mobile view.

ImageDesktop

The image to be displayed in the desktop view.

Type

The options in this dropdown can be configured in the customerconfig. They can be used to signal the frontend e.g. how big this banner is.

Example two entries for type: 1-column and 2-column
makaira.banner.types[]=1-column
makaira.banner.types[]=2-column

Changes to the Customer Configuration can be made through Makaira Support (support@makaira.io)
