Which is why I said that it needed to be hosted at the main site, not on cloud. However, people demanded that we support it so it was added.

      You need to tell Google to look for the ads.txt file at www.vintagefordforum.com. You might be able to do this by forcing a 301 redirect of vintagefordforum.com to www.vintagefordforum.com at your DNS.

            So I just checked again and the warning message is gone. It seems that plan A may have worked

                We can't upload files like this for Cloud Customers. All cloud sites use the exact same set of files. Attachments, Avatars, and files in the Cloud File Manager are not stored as they would be stored in a normal vBulletin installation. There is a lot of coding behind the scenes to make them work.

                The method we provided is the only way to configure this for cloud customers.

                    So I thought that I was all good. After placing the google code the warning message disappeared. A couple weeks later, today it reappeared. Strange now what?

                      What does Google say about the issue? Why isn't it accepting the file?

                      I don't know what else we can do to provide this file. I see the file on your cloud site. Don't know if it contains the proper information. You can add ads.txt to your URL to see it.

                        I don't know if this will help you Carrfixr but I have another website, nothing to do with vBulletin, it is just a Blogger blog site I use to share my crafts.

                        I have had the same problem, AdSense kept giving the fix warning.

                        On www the .ads.txt code showed but not on https that just redirected to my home page

                        So, on the domain DNS settings I put the code in the txt record option and after a few hours the code showed on both www and https and the fix warning is gone

                        now I'm no expert and it wouldn't have worried me too much had it all gone wrong and messed up my site, it's not that important.

                        But your site is so PLEASE do your research before taking my route, it's only a suggestion. I wouldn't want your site messed up

                          Thanks for the comment MrsTiggywinkle your response was appreciated. I looked at the txt in my dns and there was some kind of crazy looking code. I replaced it with the same code that was put into the forum root box. Is this right or wrong? got me. I'll see what happens. I can always revert that dns--txt code back if it doesn't work and try something else

                            All my txt boxes were empty of code but there where a few boxes which I assumed was for when you needed to add verification for different websites.

                            Reading up on this I'm sure it is what they are used for: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/TXT_record if you look at examples it includes Google site verification so I guess adsense verification should be the same

                            good luck

                              Carrfixr I'm seeing your ads code on both www.vintagefordforum.com/ads.txt and vintagefordforum.com/ads.txt

                              It wasn't on both yesterday.

                                This is the URL that google will be checking for the file. Not any of you sub-domains like www.
