  • Installing Adsense

    I have signed up for adsense and added it to my VB account.

    I want to know will my board go back to the VB default blue when I upgrade?

    I have added a user Legend
    Users on in the last 24 hours
    Custom buttons and loadsssssss more

    Will my board stay as it is visually? I dont want to lose all of the changes and need to do them all over again.

    Thanks

    Upgrading will always overwrite any hacks or changes you made to the vB files. However it will not change any plug-in or product add-ons, although you may have to ask the authors of these add-ons if they are compatible with the latest version of vB.

    Also upgrading will not overwrite custom templates. Nonetheless you may have to revert your custom templates and redo your changes depending on the template and the version you are upgrading from.

      I am running VB 3.8.1

      Will we lose what has been added to the FAQ and the welcome message for non members? our notices, email and pm to new members.
      we have alot of changes to phrases etc

      Is there not a plugin to run adsense? why do we have to install so much surely just an extra few files would work.
      If its going to be alot of work would be better to manually add the adverts.

        In that case you just need to download a new zip file and reupload at least these files:

        /admincp/deployads.php
        /includes/adsense_templates.php
        /includes/init.php
        /includes/xml/cpnav_ads.xml


        This will not affect any of your data or styles.

          Just these files for a download for 3.8+ users might be a good idea

          this works perfectly and I have no issues at all.

          Thanks for your time

            Hmmmm

            When running the adverts as LOW I am struggling to change the colours from a dark blue/grey

            when running the adverts as HIGH the top adverts shows as the colour I have selected in my google account but the bottom one is still the dark blue/grey

            Do you have any idea why? I dont think there is any colour options in VB and all has to be done in the adsense panel.

                My advert control panel in admincp no longer works.
                It worked fine when I uploaded the files mentioned above.

                Upgraded to 3.8.2 and no longer works.

                When I try to turn adverts off they dont go off and still stay as the high package.

                It does say they are off in the admincp menu but they are not off.

                when I try to change the setting to just display text adverts and click save it always changes back to show text and picture adverts.

                I just re uploaded the above files from my 3.8.2 file that I used to upgrade and still not working.

                Can you help please.

                Thanks

                    I am trying to change how my adverts are on display.
                    I am currently on the high package
                    I tried to go to the low package but on the forum its still showing as the high package.
                    I then tried to change it to no adverts but on the forum it still displays the high package of adverts.

                    I have uploaded the old working 4 files from 3.8.1 and still the same.
                    I downloaded a fresh 3.8.2 and uploaded the 4 files and still not working.

                    what ever options I select when I try to change google adds i always get the same things in the process I am sure when I first tested it if I went on LOW ADS it would only show 2 things in its process.

                    I get these 4 things no matter what options I try

                      A link to your forums would help.

                          It's showing as 'low' to me.

                          Low
                          1. A small 5-link advertising unit under the navigation bar. This location only shows text ads in the Low package.
                          2. A small advertising unit at the footer of the page.

                            I have cleared cache for firefox and IE and tried it in both and still HIGH ADVERTS for me.

                            Got another member to check and still HIGH for them. Got them to clear temp files etc and still HIGH for them.

                            I will leave it on low for a day or so and see if it alters for us

                            I will return and update you.

                            Thanks.

                              The control panel was saying displaying LOW adverts but the forums themselves were showing HIGH adverts.

                              Still not displaying correctly so I have fixed it by reverting the advert templates back to their original state and now adverts show correctly as control panel says.

                              I had added this and nothing more

                              <if condition="$GLOBALS['vbulletin']->adsense_pub_id">
                              <if condition="is_member_of($bbuserinfo, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 16)">

                              I only want these groups to see my adverts is this code ok? and where would u suggest its put? I had added it to 3 templates and it was working but obviously caused some conflict.

                              Thanks.
