This module provides a way to feature advertisements on a Drupal website.

It displays graphical, text and flash ads in configurable blocks.

It records and reports useful statistics.

It is easy to configure and does not depend on other contrib modules.

If you are upgrading SimpleAds from 1.7 to 1.8 please use development version of the module. Version 1.7 has a problem in the upgrade path. I will release fixed version shortly.

Please see for the fix #1594798: Reinstall module does not create the fields for content type
