Okay there are some files you will have to add code to and I will mention the ones that will generate you the best money for impressions :) Go to your forums directory and select the styles folder, and then prosilver assuming your using prosilver.


Open: viewforum_body.html

"FIRST"Find: <!-- IF U_MCP --><p>[&nbsp;<a href="{U_MCP}">{L_MCP}</a>&nbsp;]</p><!-- ENDIF -->

Add in new line Before: Google add code

Find: <!-- INCLUDE overall_footer.html -->

Add in new line before: Google add code

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Open: viewtopic_body.html

Find: <!-- IF U_MCP --><p>[&nbsp;<a href="{U_MCP}">{L_MCP}</a>&nbsp;]</p><!-- ENDIF -->

Add in new line Before: Google ad code

Find: <!-- INCLUDE overall_footer.html -->

Add in new line before: Google add code

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Open: ucp_footer.html

Find: <!-- INCLUDE overall_footer.html -->

Add in new line before: Google add code

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Open: ucp_header.html

Find: <h2>{L_UCP}</h2>

Add in new line Before: Google add code

____________________________________________________________________________________________

I will edit and add some more but this will keep you busy for a bit :) Remember to refresh your template files in the admin cp because if you don't, they won't appear :P

Okay here's another that will get you really great impressions :)

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Open: posting_layout.html

Find: <!-- IF TOPIC_TITLE -->

Add in new line before: Google ad code

Find: <!-- INCLUDE overall_footer.html -->

The way you have them isnt to over powering either. Thanks for this Brian.

Can you tell us where they go? or show a screenshot?

Example

Code for banner in the header (I dont know if its the header)

Open: viewtopic_body.html

Find: <!-- IF U_MCP --><p>[&nbsp;<a href="{U_MCP}">{L_MCP}</a>&nbsp;]</p><!-- ENDIF -->

Add in new line Before: Google ad code

Find: <!-- INCLUDE overall_footer.html -->

Add in new line before: Google add code


Thanks

I also want to add another point to this topic. When making your ads centered you must re align the forums after accordingly, NOTE this code will add a "Subsilver border" around your ads. Looks real nice :)

For example,


Code: Select all

<!-- IF not S_HIDE_ADS -->
    <div id="ysfi_ads" style="text-align:center; margin: 10px 0;">
       <div class="<!-- IF SCRIPT_NAME eq "viewtopic" -->navbar<!-- ELSE -->forumbg<!-- ENDIF -->" style="width:750px; margin:0 auto;">
            <div class="inner"><span class="corners-top"><span></span></span>
                <div align="center">

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-4639496444672477";
google_ad_width = 728;
google_ad_height = 90;
google_ad_format = "728x90_as";
google_ad_type = "text";
google_ad_channel = "";
google_color_border = "0D96DA";
google_color_bg = "D4E1EC";
google_color_link = "FFFFFF";
google_color_text = "FFFFFF";
google_color_url = "008000";
//-->
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"
  src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>

            <span class="corners-bottom"><span></span></span></div>
        </div>
    </div><div align="left">
    <!-- ENDIF -->


When I centered the ad, the forums also centered

Code: Select all

<div align="center">


so I off set this action by adding this

Code: Select all

<div align="left">


I hope this helps :) This is in the index_body.html

Thank yo so much, bbrian017.

I have used your modifications on my forum http://www.golfutstyr.no. But I would also like to ad adsense on the index page (mainpage, landing page) between header and forum. How can I do this?

Again; thank you!

Best regards,
Martin,

You said
"Remember to refresh your template files in the admin cp because if you don't, they won't appear"


How/where do you do that?

There is also a "purge cache" button on the homepage of the ACP.

guys i cant get it to work. here are my google codes

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-0886117832185077";
google_ad_width = 728;
google_ad_height = 90;
google_ad_format = "728x90_as";
google_ad_type = "text_image";
//2007-08-21: site.com
google_ad_channel = "7694908866";
google_color_border = "FFFFFF";
google_color_bg = "000000";
google_color_link = "CC0000";
google_color_text = "FFFFFF";
google_color_url = "FFCC66";
google_ui_features = "rc:10";
//-->
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>

I followed the instructions and all but it still wouldn't work. Do i need a line spacing after and before the codes?? I refreshed my theme as well. Do i have to wait for while for the ads to appear? there's totally nothing on my site except the forum at the moment. No signs of any ads :(
