Re: Correct Way to Place Google AdSense Code in phpBB 3.2.7

Anyone who managed to put Google AdSense code in viewtopic_body.html and find it working by displaying ads between posts?

Re: What is the efficient way of combating spambots in phpBB 3.2.x?

Thank you MarkDHamill and Wirral Talk, I will first test IP Blocker/CIDRAM as suggested by Wirral Talk, if that does not work, I may go for antispam ext.

Only rarely they can register. This actually means banning them, doesn't help to prevent server load!

What is the efficient way of combating spambots in phpBB 3.2.x?

Hello Members, I initially thought the traffic at our forum is skyrocketing, but suddenly, I discovered hundreds of which I think of fake bots invasion, and let me ask you if my intuition is correct, if a lot of IP addresses look like 159.138.xyz.wps, for example, 159.138.156.136, 159.138.157.20, 15...

The extension uses a cookie based guest tracking, but it is not bulletproof because cookies can be deleted by the user. IP address is not used, but it is the same, it can be changed.
A guest can vote more than once if he/she uses the same device with different browsers, is it?

NEVER place your adsense code in overall_header.html and overall_footer.html template files!

Doing so will result in you breaching the Adsense TOS as pointed out already.
Placed in index_body.html.

Re: Correct Way to Place Google AdSense Code in phpBB 3.2.7

Surprisingly, Google generated a code, that asked me to put it anywhere between <head> </head>, and they would automatically detect places where their ads fit most. I tried different places, index_body.html, viewforum_body.html and viewtopic_body.html and they placed ads on the homepage in six diffe...

Re: Correct Way to Place Google AdSense Code in phpBB 3.2.7

Thank you all for contributions. I finally solved the problem and did exactly what I wanted. One ad at the header and another at the footer (with resized heights), only on the index page. I solved the blank/white space problem when viewing topic/forum. The rest of the ads will be served randomly any...

The problem is when I load other than index page, ads do not show, only a blank rectangular white space is shown.
Maybe Google is not showing ads on you pages, because the don't check them.
Surprisingly when I tend like creating a post/topic the ad appears in the header!

Re: Correct Way to Place Google AdSense Code in phpBB 3.2.7

Google is instruction is always put this code (AdSense code) between <head> </head> in the html of your website. Did you try it? (in overall_header.html - for the/all style(s) you're using naturally) I am no longer using the ext, placing the code into overall_header and index_body can at least show...

Re: Correct Way to Place Google AdSense Code in phpBB 3.2.7

What instructions do you have from Google Adsense? An extension has to be the best way. If you’re having problems with an extension you should be asking in the dedicated discussion/support forum for the extension here .

Correct Way to Place Google AdSense Code in phpBB 3.2.7

I hope there are a couple of people who are implementing Google AdSense advertising program on phpBB 3.2.x or specifically, phpBB 3.2.7. So far I have tested this extension https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extension/ads/ and followed instructions (from https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extension/...

This extension tells you the number of votes from guests. I am not sure if that answers your question.
Can it for example prevent multiple voting from the same IP address? Mechanism that helps to prevent the same guest from voting multiple times, at least by using the same device/IP address.
