A Full Page Flex ad format is fully responsive and auto sizes depending on the device/screen orientation. It covers 100% of the screen.
This article will walk you through creating a Full Page Flex unit.
Full Page Flex Ad Unit
In the Builder, Create a New File, type in File Name, and select Full Page Flex from the dropdown.
Select ad dimensions or click custom to enter your own.
Canvas dimensions for the Flex unit represent the safe area in the middle of the screen/page. This is where you’ll put your ad content. The rest of the screen will be filled in with a solid color, gradient or image file.
Backup Image – Any image asset that matches the dimensions you’ve entered will be displayed in the dropdown list. You can select one here or add a backup in the builder under general properties in the “Fallback Image” field. This Backup Image will be displayed if the user’s browser is out of date and cannot support HTML5.
Click URL – The default click URL. The click URL is automatically applied to any area of the ad unit without an associated click or event action (i.e. buttons, hitboxes, expand actions etc.). Users that click on the fallback image will also be directed to this URL.
Setting Up Your Canvas
A blank canvas will load onto the screen. This is where you'll place your ad content.
Ad Properties (In the Properties panel to the right of the Builder)
