What needs to take place for the Usergroup: Unregistered / Not Logged In to see the ads, or any other group aside from admin for that matter?

Looking through the properties for the groups, I do not see anything specific for making ads viewable, nor in the ad settings.

Thanks in advance.

Hey
i am having a problem here.
In the fluid version of the theme, there is white space to the right side of the right column ad.
Here's a screenshot.



Please tell me what can be done about it.

I know in the vB Ad Management Global Settings there is a section "Do NOT display advertisements for scripts". Just for everyone to see without having to go find this and look for it:

"This allows you to exclude pages based on the type of content they are displaying. Enter the names of the scripts which you don't want to display advertisements, separated by your delimiter. (i.e. register#private#index)

Some advertiser's TOS requires you to exclude pages without content, such as registration pages. Ask in the vBulletin forums if you need help identifying the correct scriptnames, or you can find them yourself in the code files as described here."

My question is, what does everyone else disallow? Unless someone renames the scripts, shouldn't we all basically have the same scripts disallowed? Finally, can someone give me a list that I can copy and paste into this section of the script names that are known to be Google No-No's?

Thanks!

Hi - I have excatly the same question as dssart. It would be great to know what scripts to exclude.

Is it possible to have an alternate ad if the chosen ad is excluded on certain forum/s?
Like for example, an adsense is place on the header globally except for adult category/forum. So instead of displaying adsense on that adult category, an alternate ad will be displayed (could be bidvertiser, adultfriendfinder, etc.).

Add usergroup 1 to the usergroup permissions in vB Ad Management General Settings.

Really couldn't tell you for a custom theme I'm afraid, far too many changes to be able to pin it down to just one and it may take more than one change to fix it.

Oops, remembered wrongly. Try these, you might need to adjust the colspan numbers if I've guessed wrongly. The number should match the number of cells the ad spans.

# Try putting it at the top.
# You can put it anywhere you like.
# Try putting it at the bottom.

Conditionals, really isn't it. I just happened to come across a tutorial for integrating conditionals and if it's as easy as it seems then it'll definitely be in the next version which will allow for any kind of conditional about anything and allow more or less infinite flexibility.

O.K., this seems to work..I monkeyed around with it, tell me if you think it's O.K. as far as the structure of the code. I'm just hacking here and I'm no coder, so if it looks bizarre, it probably is:

This formats the columns the way I want it, however it displays differently in Internet Explorer than it does in FireFox. In Firefox, it displays nice. The right margin fits within the browser screen. In IE, the right hand margin shoots off a few columns. Any ideas? I could post a few images if it will help.

Gotcha..both below images use the code I've attached above. The first image shows the code as displayed in Firefox. The forum table is centered neatly and nicely within the browser window. The right edge has the same number of pixels of space between the table and the edge of the browser window as the left edge. No horizontal scroll bar. The second shows the code displayed in Internet Explorer. Notice how the right edge of the table goes way off the browser screen, which in turn throws of the formatting of the entire forum table and results in the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the browser. Firefox rendition is the desirable formatting. IE is baaad.

Oh, now I recognise you. Hah. Ok, insert this following in front of your adsense adcode.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Replace forumbit_advertisement with this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Add this to your style's Main CSS AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Your style's dropdown box > Textarea at the very bottom of the CSS page.:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


You may need to adjust the left:85px; value to suit your style. I've tested it and it works fine on my forum. It lifts the adsense out of the page and places it back on top where it should go, the invisible image pads out the height of the row to match the space needed. If the browser window is less than 1024 px wide then the ad will cover everything to the right of it on that row, but that's probably an improvement on stretching the page which is what it would normally do anyway.

If everyone would cast their eyes to the very top of the first post of the thread, I'm now using vBulletin's Project Tools product to deal with bugs in the future and likewise am actively seeking feature and change suggestions for the next major version of vB Ad Management. If you feel the need to contribute to either of those, please feel free. I'm afraid you must register to be able to post for which I apologise, but it's one of those necessary evils.

So in the future it's bugs and feature requests there, everything else here. Ok? Good good.

Same principle, use this as your threadbit_advertisement template.

Installation Problem...

I have installed as per the instructions - uploaded the folder into the 'includes' folder, then changed all the templates etc, but when I go into my admincp - vBulletin Options - then go to the bottom, the control panel that I expected to see there isn't showing.

Have I forgotten to do something in order to activate it?

Any help would be most appreciated.

Graham
