ADS not showing after install? - Possible fix here

by Wozza » Mon Nov 10, 2014 6:40 am

All,

After reading through the pages here looking for answers to adverts not showing after a successful install.. all i seemed to find was others asking the same questions and getting no replies, and then there were the really ignorant posters that came back and replied to their own post for help just to say 'its okay i fixed it !' without posting what they did ! :evil:

Well heres my answer to my issue of adverts not showing after a good clean install, actually the third good clean install trying t get it to work ! ..

I'm running 3.0.12 and using the lucid lime theme.

After the install everything was there in the ACP and i configured the ads and entered all the google adsense code etc ... no ads showing in any of the views on the forum... damn.

When setting up the ads i selected the groups that i did not want to see the adverts until i had finished setting it up and amending the formatting as i wanted it, so only admins had visability.

In desperation after 3 install attempts and going through all the coding over and over i decided to make the adverts visable to everyone and de-selected all the groups.. the adverts all appeared !! :o

So i started scratching my head as to why all of a sudden i could see them even though i had not selected admins ... so off into the ACP i trottted and started digging... i took a look at my username and what group it was in .. sure enough it said member of group ADMINS .. it also listed me being a member of Registered Users .. this was the reason i could not see them ! even though ADMINS was selected as my default group, the fact i also had the registered user group listed blocked me from seeing the adverts !

So.. those of you banging your heads on desks and keyboards tryig to get this mod to actually show the adverts, go check what group(s) you are shown as being a member of, because there is a good chance that like me, when you added yourself to the admins group, you didn't bother removing the registered users group as an option.

Glad its working, because it works a treat ! although i was not too happy with some of the placements, but a little formatting soon sorted that and for a cleaner look i removed all the boxing and just placed the advert on its own centered.

Hope this helps some of you trying to get this working..

Welcome to phpbb. This ad mod do not require any theme edit, is just system file edit (if you install with automod)

In order to display the ads, you need to create an ad with the HTML code from your ad network.
After that, select the group which you do not want the ad to see and select your location.
If you have selected above header copy {ADS_1} and so on.
Open template editor and find your theme. Now select overall_hader.html if you selected above header.
After the body tag, paste your code.


Code: Select all

<body>
{ADS_1}


And vola!
If you have selected admin not see the ad, you might want to logout to test or open incognito mode and test it there. If you more question, I can help...

Thanks for the offer, but as stated I only needed to get the ads to show in the forum and thats sorted now.

The formatting is not a problem for me and i have the adverts where and how i want them.

The post was not a request for help, it was to pass on information to others.

My ads aren't showing either after I followed all the instructions to the T. But I do not see any option to pick groups to show the ads to. So you suggestion doesn't apply. What can I do?

When you create an advert in the management panel, it will show in the list of adverts at the bottom of the management page.. to the right of each of the adverts you create you will have the options edit - delete- copy .. select Edit and then in this panel you are able to select which groups you do not want the advert to be shown to.
