Title: ads on main page but not in threads or at bottom
Post by: bradm77 on October 10, 2007, 08:35:56 am
I am using google ads (adsense) - the google ads show up fine on the main page, but in between rpelies onj a thread they are broken - there is an ad-sized box there, but it just shows an IE 400 error (The webpage cannot be found).

Any idea why the ads would work on some parts but not others?  Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

Hmm, that is wierd. Are there any errors in your logs in the Admin cp.

no errors in the log related to the ads at all, just some search errors.

Did the ad mod install fine. ??? Seems maybe there are some edits missing. What theme are you using. ???

it installed OK - it didnt show up in admin until I changed the language, but I think thats pretty commonplace - I am using the default core theme.

Post by: bigguy on October 15, 2007, 02:34:49 pm
have you went through the 4 template files to see if all the edits are in correctly. ???

what 4 files should I be going through, and what changes should I be looking for?
Title: Re: ads on main page but not in threads or at bottom

If you look in.

index.template.php
boardindex.template.php
messageindex.template.php
Display.template.php

and compare the code in those files with what is stickied to the top of the Theme Support board you should be good to go. Also I keep telling people this but if you had a program that would search through the code for you it would be much easier to do. Try Php Designer 2007. (google it)

This is the page you want:

http://www.smfads.com/forums/index.php?topic=475.0

Only the template files need to be looked at.

Those are the ones I checked - everything that should be in there is in there, but I am still having the issue.

You may have found a bug but if you go into the settings in the ad mod and turn this on:

Ads within posts look like actual posts

It seems to work for the test ads I made.
Title: Re: ads on main page but not in threads or at bottom
Post by: bradm77 on October 18, 2007, 09:14:45 am
I left that option checked but it seems as though it is still broken for my ads - both in between posts and at the bottom of the page when you are inside of a thread......

Do I need to change my google adsense code?

Post by: bigguy on October 18, 2007, 09:15:43 am
Hmm my test works but google will not show up for some reason. Can you post the 4 template files and I will check them out to see if the code is in them.
Title: Re: ads on main page but not in threads or at bottom
Post by: bradm77 on October 18, 2007, 09:17:46 am

Sorry - was looking at the toolbar instead of additional options.

Found one error in the index.template.php but I am not sure if it will fix the problem; try it and see before I test the rest of the templates.

Post by: bradm77 on October 19, 2007, 06:12:55 am
Ok, I think that got it - had to tweak my settings but it's good now - Thanks for all your help!!!
