openx moduel working on joomla3.x? was created by monetise
Because I am unable to upgrade my php version on my shared server i need to use openx instaead of upgrading to Revive.
I also want to upgrade my Joomla from 2.5 to 3.x.

Will this module work with Joomla 3.x ?

Thanks

It actually hasn't been tested, but you can give it a try :)

I would also like to give it a try since I have been using it for years with the 2.5.x version but it seems it's impossible to install. The zip I download contains everything but the appropriate files. It even contains some MACOSX folders (which means that it was compressed on a Mac only not properly?)
Also there some files with .LCK extension (lock files?)
Anyway, Joomla 3.3.1 won't install since there are XML files missing.

FYI, here are the contents of the expanded zip file:
mod_OpenX_spc/_mod_OpenX_spc.xml  
__MACOSX/mod_OpenX_spc/.__mod_OpenX_spc.xml  
mod_OpenX_spc/_mod_OpenX_spc.xml.LCK  
__MACOSX/mod_OpenX_spc/.__mod_OpenX_spc.xml.LCK  
mod_OpenX_spc/mod_OpenX_spc.php  
__MACOSX/mod_OpenX_spc/._mod_OpenX_spc.php  
mod_OpenX_spc/mod_OpenX_spc.php.LCK  
__MACOSX/mod_OpenX_spc/._mod_OpenX_spc.php.LCK  
mod_OpenX_spc/mod_OpenX_spc.xml  
__MACOSX/mod_OpenX_spc/._mod_OpenX_spc.xml  
mod_OpenX_spc/mod_OpenX_spc.xml.LCK  
__MACOSX/mod_OpenX_spc/._mod_OpenX_spc.xml.LCK

Sorry about that, we will make sure the archive is cleaned up.

However, we have now confirmed that it does not work on Joomla 3.x, but we will work on a new compatible version as soon as time allows.

Actually, I copied the files from my 2.5.x Joomla installation, placed them in the proper place, did a discover and install and voilà!

It worked like a charm. Ads are served.

Thanks for the update! It seems only the installation XML needs to be updated for Joomla 3.x, otherwise the code is compatible.

This will speed a solution for others. Much appreciated, we will get that out soon!

I gave that a try. I copied the "modules/mod_OpenX_spc" from my Joomla 2.5 site to my Joomla 3 site, but it did not show when I went to Discover.
Are there any steps I left out?

Did you purge cache and expired cache before you ran discover?

Yes, I purged both caches, and Discover still did not pick it up.

you can use the latest version on Joomla 3.x, but not by installing it directly.

The way I did it was to install on a fresh joomla 2.5 installation, then copy the /modules/mod_OpenX_spc/ folder into the Joomla 3.x root, then go to the backend of Joomla 3.x, then Extensions manager - > Discover -> tick openx module that it finds then click on the INSTALL button in the top left.

There you go. Module installed on Joomla 3.x

Woudl be nice to have an install that works straight away in Joomla 3.x though.

:whistle:
