How to place advertisements on top of proxified pages

December 5, 2007

Many people starting with online proxies may wonder how some proxies have advertisements on the top of all proxified pages. The goal of this guide is to show you how you can place advertisements, like adbrite, on top of proxified pages. Please remember that you cannot place adsense ads on proxified pages.


PHProxy

To place ads on top of proxified pages in PHProxy, start out by opening up “index.php” of your installation of PHProxy. Scroll down to the very bottom and find the following line:
$_url_form .= '</form></div>';
Now simply place the advertising code between </form> and </div>. Note: If the advertising code has any ‘ (single quotation marks) you will need to replace them with \’ (backslash single quotation marks).
CGIproxy

To place ads on top of proxified pages in CGIproxy, open the file “nph-proxy.cgi” of your installation of CGIproxy. Scroll down to a little past the middle and find the following lines:
$table_close
</center>
</form>
EOF
Now place the advertising code between </form> and EOF. If you scroll a bit farther you should see the same set of lines. Place the advertising code there too. Note: You do not need to replace any ‘ (single quotation marks) for CGIproxy.
Zelune

To place ads on top of proxified pages in Zelune, open the file “index.php” of your installation of Zelune. Scroll down to a little past the middle and find the following lines:
$string = $this->mass_replace($to_replace, $string);
return $string;
Now place the following code between the lines $string = $this->mass_replace($to_replace, $string); and return $string;:
$adcode = '';
$string = preg_replace('#\<\s*body(.*?)\>#si', "$0\n$adcode" , $string, 1);
Now place your advertising code between the ' (single quotation marks) in $adcode = '';. Note: If the advertising code has any ‘ (single quotation marks) you will need to replace them with \’ (backslash single quotation marks).
BBlocked

To place ads on top of proxified pages in BBlocked, open the file “includes/template.php” of your installation of BBlocked. Scroll down to the end and find the following line:
print($output);
Now place the following code above the line print($output);:
$adcode = '';
$output = preg_replace('#\</\s*body(.*?)\>#si', "$0\n$adcode" , $output, 1);
Now place your advertising code between the ' (single quotation marks) in $adcode = '';. Note: If the advertising code has any ‘ (single quotation marks) you will need to replace them with \’ (backslash single quotation marks).
