Adsense as a poster on your forums

So I've been playing around a bit with my new vb board, and figured out how to make it appear as if the "advertiser" has the second post on every page.

You can play around with the code some more to change some of the messages from the ones I have on there (i.e. posts: location:, etc)

For kicks, I have the "online" icon set to say "Google is online", so change this tag if you want it to say something else.

This was designed for "legacy". I do not know if it works for the new forum layout

You can also ad a custom ad "Avatar" as well. Just replace the "<!-- IF YOU WANT TO GIVE THE AD AN AVATAR, BUT IT HERE -->" with the code for the avatar.

Add this code to the END of your postbit_legacy template

you need to remove 'Keep the site running'. You are not allowed to have any text which asks or suggests to your members or guests to click adsense ads.

I replaced it with "Sponsored posting" but you could make it whatever you want.

This is cool.

Thanks. It probably took me about 5 hours (off an on) to go through and figure out what did what. I'm pretty happy with it, though. I can do the same for the posbit normal rather than legacy if enough want it done, though no promises on how long it will take.. lol

The "avatar" spot that I included under the "poster name" is a great place to put something like the google firefox referal icon, ...

Not true.
