Introduction

This is very easy to use Floating Template.

User experience

A user opens the webpage and sees wallpaper with the ad content. On screen resize, the wallpaper
responsively adjusts to the screen size with the ad content fully visible. It accommodates a link to
the predefined landing page.

Creative assets

The following items are to be delivered by a creative agency:

  • Banner asset containing manifest.json file and HTML file zipped together with images,
    scripts and other material.
  • Banner assets containing manifest.json file and HTML file zipped together with images, scripts and other material.

NOTE: manifest.json file and HTML file should be in the root directory of the .zip file.

Manifest.json file

  • Manifest.json file should define the ad dimensions and the HTML file which is used as a banner source.
  • HTML file should include Adform HTML library which enables the banner to receive a clickTAG variable:
    <script src="https://s1.adform.net/banners/scripts/rmb/Adform.DHTML.js"></script>

Specifications

  • The text in the ad has to be aligned to the “Search” form and button.
  • The ad content has to be placed as close to the top as possible in order to avoid scrolling for
    full ad experience.
  • Additional graphic content is allowed above the search fields and on the each side of the
    logo as long as it does not interfere with the static content.

NOTE: When creating wallpaper in the system, it is needed to add custom variables in order to
set the color of the background. In the settings tab, add backgroundColor custom variable
and indicate the preferred color code (e.g. #ffffff).
