    The most simple method would be to make a splash page ype of deal, and the 'skip' button leads to your actual page.
    More complicated option is to reverse the lightbox jQuery plug-in, and load the pop-up on pageLoad, then make it close once you click the 'skip' link.
    Third option: make a div with a z-index of [a lot] that covers the whole page (and contains the ad), and then write jquery that changes it's visibility to hidden once you click the 'skip' link.

    That's a good idea, the jQuery one - I'm not fond of splash pages.

    Well the advertisement is basically a splash page, so you're gonna hate it anyway.

    Best bet would be just jQuery don't need light box, just a div that contains the ad and code like this

    HTML
    Code:
    <div id="advertisement">
     {Ad code here}
     <a href="#" id="closethead">Close</a>
    </div>
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function(){
     $('#advertisement').show();
    });
    $('#closethead').click(function(){
     $('advertisement').hide();
    });
    </script>
    Just make the z-index something really high to cover up everything, and there you go, and then when they click close, it closes the advertisement.

    What he said, except I would use fadeIn and fadeOut to make it fancier.

    Yea i was just using hide/show because its easy to know whats going on, but yea a fadeIn(100) and a fadeOut(400) would be a really nice touch, though i personally hate ads.

    Yeah, especially these kinds. Even worse if they have a timer on them

    Ugh i hate the timers, it generally makes me want to leave the website if it has timers on it. I can't stand them. I'd rather have integrated ads, that you can't even tell they're there then any other ad if i had to, though i think no ads is the way to go. Though I guess people have to make money some how.

    I personally like what wikipedia is doing. They refuse ads completely, instead ask politely for donations.
