Hello

I have made an article on my website and wan't to add the google adsense code, when I do this its invisible and won't showup on the page. How do I make it show up, it seems to do this with alot of scripts, they don't show up?

My website is at www.ps2home.co.uk

Many thanks,
PS2home

the adsense code works fine on your home page.

Are you trying to add it to your articles in smartsection. If so then make sure HTML is enabled and you post the full code.

I've come across this problem myself - basically you have to disable auto line breaks and format paragraphs, etc., manually.

One solution I can think of, is to insert the code into a new table in the template itself.

This way, for every article or page you right, your ad will be displayed.

A common way I've seen this done is to have it displayed immediately after the spot a user is taken to after they click on more, for instance....


I hope that helps some.

With Smartsection, I use the following custom template for the smartsection_item.html template. You can see a live demo HERE

<{include file='db:smartsection_header.html'}>

$display_whowhen_link}>

    </

<{/if}>

In my style.css, I define the following class to make the text wrap around the Google ad.

.gads {
    
margin0 0 0 4px;
    
floatright;
}


Keep in mind that Google only allows 3 ad blocks per page. If you go over that limit, none or only some of your ads will display. Also, until Google spiders your site, you will most likely get a blank space where the ad should show up.

HTH.

Insanity can be defined as "doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."

Stupidity is not a crime. Therefore, you are free to go.
