Introduction

Overview

The Adhesion is an ad format that continually fixes to the bottom of the display while the user scrolls through the page. In order to do that, Adhesion format uses default panel (banner panel) as a banner so it can be placed at the bottom of the publisher page without restricted by publisher page layout. Then when user click to expand, it will use another panel for the expansion.

The Adhesion has both Workspace and Ad Builder templates, this build guide describes the Workspace templates.  If you would like further information on the Ad Builder templates, please check the related Ad Builder build guide. Workspace templates give you greater flexibility to adapt the code and program additional customizations while Ad Builder templates require little to no coding and provide ease of use. The templates available within these alternate environments may be slightly different, so make sure you use the one based on your needs. The different templates are described below, but check back frequently since new templates are expected to be added.

The following table provides links to the template and demo for the Adhesion format.

Workspace Templates

The Workspace templates includes an expandable template in sizes 320 x 50. The 320 x 50 template initially set up as full width banners that expand to the full width of the display on ad load. The banner will always pin to the bottom and will disappear while the user is scrolling the page or rotating the device and will re-appear once the user is done with scrolling or orientation changes (Note: It can also be customized so that banner will never disappear). The banner always includes a close button in the top right corner so users can collapse the ad.

By default, the Adhesion format expands to 25% height of the device screen to comply with the Better Ad Experience. The Adhesion format can also expand to full screen by changing the setting via custom variable.  The following illustrations show the full width expandable template in a collapsed state and an expanded state.

The following illustrations show the full width expandable template in a collapsed state and a full screen expanded state in mobile browser.

The Adhesion format supports in App (MRAID) environments with some limitations. Depending on the App, the Adhesion format may NOT continually adhere to the bottom, it may just display the banner where the App assigns it. Additionally, the Adhesion format will only expand to full screen when served in App.

Here is a comparison of their behavior when the workspace template is served in web browser vs. in App (MRAID).

  In Web Browser In App (MRAID)
Banner Hidden Displays at the ad slot that App assigns it to*
Default Panel Auto Expands as an Adhesion banner pinned to the bottom of the page* Does not expand
Expand Panel Expands when Expand button is clicked Expands when Expand button is clicked and always expands to full screen

* You may use same content for banner and default panel so you do not need create separate content for each of them.

 

The templates available in Ad Builder may be slightly different than the Workspace equivalent. The table below shows the functionality difference between them.

Customizing Adhesion

All of the Adhesion functionalities are programmed in the script file. You may modify the script file based on your design and what functionalities you will need for your ad.

Customize the Panels
  • To customize the default panel (adhesion banner) or expand panel, open scripts/script.js and panels/expand/scripts/script.js in an HTML-authoring environment and edit it as needed.
    The following table provides a list of functions and descriptions for the script file.
Functions 

Function name

Description

checkIfEBInitialized

This function will issue the call to initializeCreative function upon the state of the EB object. You can add your things in here if you want them to happen before the ad is initialized.

initializeCreative

The function is where we initialize the ad. You can add functionalities in here if you want them happening when the ad is initialized.

initializeGlobalVariables

The function saves all the html objects into global variables so we can use them later.

initializeCloseButton

The function decides if the custom close button should be shown based on where the ad is served and the value of mdEnableSDKDefaultCloseButton.

addEventListeners

The function hooks up the events with all the clickables.

initializeVideo

This function initialize the video player for in App environment, it also initialize the video tracking for non-in App serving.

trackUserAction

This function will be triggered when user taps on user action button. It only contains EB.userActionCounter function call for tracking purposes for now, but you certainly can add your own functionality here.

clickthrough

This function will be triggered when user tap on click through button. It will call the EB.clickthrough function to launch the default click through that you have setup in the ad platform, as well as track the click from our delivery.

closeAd

This function will be triggered when user taps the close icon on the top right corner of the banner. This function will dispatch closeAd command to the Adhesion custom js on the placement level and have it to close the ad completely. The function will also track the closeAd user action by calling the EB.userActionCounter function.

expand

This function will be triggered when user taps on expand button.  You may need to modify the function to fit your need for what content to be displayed when ad is expanded.

collapse

This function will be triggered when user taps on the close button when ad expands. You may need to modify this function to fit your needs for what content to be displayed when ad is collapsed.

 

Manifest Configuration (config.js file)

We have outlined some information about this file below, for a more detailed description please see the article in the Sizmek Help Center here.

The Manifest Configuration File (config.js location in the root folder of the workspace) is a metadata file that defines certain default behaviors for the ad when created on the Sizmek Advertising Suite platform (MDX does not support the manifest file; the file is simply ignored).  When you create a new blank ad, and select a workspace containing a manifest file, the information in that manifest file will be applied.  You may certainly make changes to the inputted information once the data is there.  The manifest file only gets applied once, when you assign a workspace.

  • The last key is used in the Manifest file if the key appears more than once.
  • Variables that are embedded on the format level with default values will appear on the ad level even if they do not exist on in the Manifest file.
  • A variable is ignored if an error or conflict arises. The default values on the format level apply.
  • Variable values can include boolean, integers, strings, and float types.

Recommended Manifest Configuration Changes

At the very least, you will want to make a minimum of these changes to your manifest file:

Name: The template provided includes the template name as the ad name.  You will want to make sure your ad is named according to your campaign/placement.

Clickthrough URL: The template clicks through to the Sizmek home page.  You will want to update the default clickthrough URL according to your campaign/placement.

Interactions: The template provides a single interaction named "userAction".  You will want to update this section to either include all the interactions you have in your ad's creative, or remove the section entirely and rely just on the asset scanning of the platform to detect all interactions in the code.

In addition to the above list, you may want to adjust the below entries:

Custom Variables: While the template provides default behavior, depending on the needs of your ad, the publisher(s) on which the ad will run, etc., you may need to adjust the values of some of the variables.

Banner Dimensions: The template provides is served as a 320x50.  You may need to serve a different tag size due to certain publisher restraints.  As this ad can behave responsively, you may serve any size banner you wish.  If you decide to change your banner size, you should change the Manifest to match.

Common Customizations

If you want to create Adhesion banner without any expansion, all you need to do is keep the banner settings and ignore expand panel settings, also, remove the expand button from the banner html.  Please note, it is important to keep banner file and use banner file settings to create Adhesion banner so it can display properly in both web browser and in App. We do not recommend to use expand panel as Adhesion banner. 
  1. 'mdHideBannerOnUserScroll' and 'mdHidePanelOnUserScroll' values should be 'false'.

Those values decide visibility of the banner and panel while the publisher's page is scrolling, so both banner and panel will stay visible if those values are set with 'false'. You will find them in both 'config.js' in the workspace and ad edit page (Settings > General > Advanced Features) in the platform.

  1. 'x' position of a banner should be '100'.

 This will make it so that the banner is placed at the right end of the browser. You will find this value in master ad edit page(Creative Assets > Panels) in the platform. 

  1. Change 'mdFullwidthBanner' to 'NO' instead of 'YES'. 

You will find that setting in Master Ad Setup > Settings > General.

  1. Set the banner size to 728x90. 

Since 'mdFullwidthBanner' is 'NO' the panel container is not extended to the browser width.

So we should set the banner size with accurate numbers. The size setup is in Master Ad Setup > Creative Assets > Panels

Example: http://mdx.sizmek.com/adPreview/prod/share/ab2vl51iqkj 

Note: You will still have to design your creative inside the Adhesion workspace file to have the correct dimensions of the Footnote you are trying to build. In the default case this means the banner is 728x90 and the leave behind is 100x75.

-----

Optional: Switch the ad so that the animation appears first and resolves to the leave behind.

  1. Switch over creative assets for the banner and panel. All other setups stay the same. 

Example: http://mdx.sizmek.com/adPreview/prod/share/acoegtgnuhj

 

Setting Up the Adhesion in the Sizmek Platform

Procedure
  1. Archive the Workspace into a new ZIP file, preserving the directory structure. You can do this with WinZip, 7Zip, or another archiving program.
  2. In the Sizmek platform, under Creative Assets, create a new Workspace by uploading the ZIP file.
  3. Under the Ads section, create a new ad.
  4. Set Ad Format to Adhesion and fill out the form.

    Note:On the Sizmek Platform, your user account will need access to the Adhesion format in the list of available custom formats.  If you do not have access to this format, please reach out to Support to gain permissions for this format.

  5. Under Panels List, add banner panels using following settings:
    • Banner Panel
    • Panel Name: banner (can be different name as long as consistent with the one in the custom var)
    • Creative Asset: please select index.html from the root of workspace.
    • Dimension: should be filled automatically, if not, please use 320x50
    • Auto Expand on Mouse Over: unchecked
    • Delay Expansion: unchecked
    • Auto Retract When: Never
    • Position Type: Page Relative-Percentage
    • X: 50 (in order to center your banner panel)
    • Y: 100
  1. Under Panels List, add expand panels using following settings:
    • Expand Panel
    • Panel Name: expand (can be different name as long as consistent with the one in the custom var)
    • Creative Asset: please select panels/expand/index.html from the root of workspace.
    • Dimension: should be filled automatically.
    • Auto Expand on Mouse Over: unchecked
    • Delay Expansion: unchecked
    • Auto Retract When: Never
    • Position Type: Page Relative-Percentage
    • X: 50
    • Y: 100
  1. For the Panel Settings, please make sure Show Single Panel at a Time is checked.
  2. Please also make sure Auto Expand Default Panel when Ad is Loaded is unchecked. This is very important to not to auto expand default panel because we are expanding default panel as adhesion banner in our code logic so we can use banner panel when ad served in web browser and use banner instead of banner panel when ad served in App.
  3. Add the Url for the default click-through.
  4. Save the ad.
  5. Create a new placement for the ad.
    Fill out the form. Set the Placement type to In Banner and the Banner size to 320 x 50.
  6. After you’ve saved your placement, you can then generate preview tags to test on your web site.
Custom Script Notice:

Since the Adhesion format is a HTML5 Custom Format, there is no need to attach a custom script since the appropriate one will be pulled in automatically.
For reference, the following custom script is being used:

PL_HTML5Adhesion.js

Procedure
  1. Archive the workspace into a new ZIP file, preserving the directory structure. You can do this with WinZip, 7Zip, or another archiving program.
  2. Under Creative > Asset Library , create a new Workspace by uploading the ZIP file.
  3. Under the Creative > Ads section, create a new ad by clicking New Ad > Blank Ad
  4. Enter the name of your ad and Set Ad Format to Adhesion.
  5. Under the Main Assets tab select the workspace from the workspace zip that was uploaded and the rest of form should be filled according to the ad data in manifest file(config.js) automatically.
  6. Under Advanced Panel Settings, please make sure Show Single Panel at a Time is checked.
  7. Please also make sure to check the Overwrite Creative Settings: Never auto-expand checkbox.
    This is very important to not to auto expand default panel because we are expanding default panel as adhesion banner in our code logic so we can use banner panel when ad served in web browser and use banner instead of banner panel when ad served in App.
  8. Save the ad.
  9. Create a new placement for the ad.
  10. Fill out the form. Set the Placement type to In Banner and the Banner size to 320 x 50.
  11. Generate the preview tags to test on your web site after you have saved your placement.
Custom Script Notice:

Since the Adhesion format is a HTML5 Custom Format, there is no need to attach a custom script since the appropriate one will be pulled in automatically.
