Need help installing ads mod on Red FS custom theme

(1/5) > >>

Hello,

I tried to follow the guide to install the ad mod on a custom theme.  Most edits matched up perfectly but several in the index.template.php file do not.  I am getting a parse error and this only occurs if this file is uploaded to the server.  All the other edited files are uploaded to the server as well and seem to have no effect but I think that is because index.template.php is not working correctly.

I am attaching this file, can someone please edit it or tell me how to do so?

Thank you very much!

Interestingly I found that ads are working even if I don't upload index.template.php.  When I uploaded it I was getting parse errors and the forums wouldn't load.  Without it, using the default file my site is loading up just fine with some ads.  I don't get the ads in all of the locations that the Ad Management configuration panel says that they would be available.  But I am getting them on the board index and message index, after the last post and also within posts and after categories.  That's good actually as it puts ads pretty much all over my forums.  

I am assuming that if someone modified my index.template.php file I would be able to place ads in all the places that the Ad Management configuration panel indicates are possible.  So If anyone would be willing to help it would still be greatly appreciated.

It is quite difficult for a modification's author as well as a theme creator to make their modifications work with other themes especially if they have several of their own template files. When a template file is not found in a custom non-default theme, the theme will rollback and use the default theme's template. However for the template files that the custom theme does use, you will need to manually install the modification on to template files.

Please help me with the edits I need to do to make the ads mod work on the Red FS theme.  All the other files are fine except index.tremplate.php is very different than the default file so I am unsure how to apply the edits.

Thank you.
