PageEar

A web ad that sits in the top right corner of a web site. When the user mouses over, the ad "peels" down and appears underneath. PageEar is a free version of one of these ads.

Notes
There are two versions of PageEar - 2.x and 1.x. The 2.x version has an administration interface that requires MySQL and can be used for hosting multiple banners. For our purposes, the 1.x version was entirely adequate as we want to "integrate" it with OpenX.
Version 1.x Installation
Note: "out-of-the-box", PageEar 1.x can just be stuck on your web server and will function with it's include sample images. The following instructions are the basics of installing it and basic customization of the images and the destination URL:
