    This is not a plugin, but it gives you really good control to serve all sorts of ads on massive numbers of sites.

    Install the OpenX ad server (http://www.openx.org/), set up some campaigns, and put the appropriate HTML in your WPMU installation's theme files.

    Yes. Openx is a great script. I also suggest you try it. I hope you know how to edit the theme files. ;)

    I'm using a plugin called BannerWise, but I haven't tried it on WPMU...

    I don't use a plugin for this on my MU installs (no need, bloats the site for nothing) i just open up the theme and drop the ad code in. Then each user that uses that theme gets the ad.

    The other advantage is for each theme different ads sizes, colors and locations work better so you have complete control over it.

    If instead of dropping the ad code in, you were to drop the OpenX campaign code in, you could have your OpenX server rotate ads, suspend campaigns, serve different ads depending on referrer, track ads, etc., etc.

    Really, it's just one more step to greater flexibility and more targeted ads.

    Which, of course, translates to more money. :)

    BTW, OpenX is open source. The documentation is a bit sketchy, but it's worth figuring out.

    Yes that's true, i've used self hosted OpenX on a fairly large vBulletin install and it done the job exceptionally well. I mentioned just dropping the ad code in because of simplicity, you can have the job done faster than sourcing and configuring a plugin which the OP wanted to do.

    This is interesting. I was looking to do something similar. i wonder if you can use MBA and still drop a code in your templates. so you would set up MBA and find the code it uses to display the ads, then drop this in each template, then you can still control the ad campaigns from within wordpress .

    anyone have an idea how to extract the code from the plugin?
