PL_Pandora_PluginScript.JS is set at the site account level to be appended to all HTML5 Standard Banners for Pandora site accounts when the "ROS" site section is used.

If you do not see it or need to use a different site section the JS will need to be added on ad level in the preload.



For  ads with only a static image asset or Legacy ad format: Standard Banners

JS will need to be added in the URLs tab as a On Ad Play (JavaScript) event.

Pandora accounts also have this script preloaded if you select the site section "Static"



Polite /Rich Media application for in-app use.

(A support modified script which has proven useful for RM ads)

The script is automatically applied to HTML5 Polite Banner and HTML5 Single Expandable ads for Pandora site section "All."


Pandora Responsive Banners:

The script is included by default in the Pandora Responsive Banner template. No need to manually add it when this format is used.
