Buddypress as an Ad Server
I’ve got a bit of a weird request…I’m consider putting together Buddypress as an ad server due to the weirdness of my ad serving needs. Basically, what I need is for affiliates to be able to log into a buddypress install behind a walled-garden, inside of which be able to download an embed code for my ads (the ads being iframes due to project requirements). It will be easy enough to create the ads for copying inside a single post, but because this is an affiliate program I’ll need to restrict which posts can be viewed by which users in order to keep them embedding ads from those those programs they have been approved for (I suppose according to category).
Also, I need my advertisers themselves to be able to log into buddypress and view the metrics on their ad impressions (I suppose the google analytics API could do the trick for this). My questions, if anybody would be kind enough to help me out, are:
1) Can I restrict which categories my buddypress users can see, in order to restrict which ads users can see?
2) Also, our advertisers would really need to see a completely different site than our affiliate members, albeit with similar information from the database. Would there be a way to separate the content our advertisers see? Our would this call for a new buddypress install?
Thanks for any help!
