Adding Google Adsense to Hardwired Theme
« on: January 05, 2006, 02:31:42 am »

Hey. I searched all through the forums and tried multiple different things to get Google Adsense to display with this theme but for some reason i have no luck. I've added code to theme.php, template.html, and even tried in themes.inc.php with no luck. At the moment i have removed the code from the site as it wasnt doing anything. This is the website address i want to add it too. http://version.three-point-o.com

My google adsense code that i want to use is this:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-3719969883533579";
google_ad_width = 468;
google_ad_height = 60;
google_ad_format = "468x60_as";
google_ad_type = "text_image";
google_ad_channel ="";
google_color_border = "191933";
google_color_bg = "333366";
google_color_link = "99CC33";
google_color_url = "FFCC00";
google_color_text = "FFFFFF";
//--></script>
<script type="text/javascript"
  src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>

If anyone can help me out or inform me where im meant to be putting this code would be real great.

Thanks in advance for the help

thanks for the reply GauGau but did you read the post? I have added it to themes/yourtheme/template.html plus other files with no luck of it displaying at all. Does it matter where in the template.html that i put it because no matter where i try it doesnt seem to make a difference.

This is the template file from the hardwired theme. Where do you suggest putting the adsense code to actually get it to show on my site?

Thanks again

the problem is that GOOGLE ADSENCE will only show on pages with relevant information
which google scans and placed informative advertisment links onto your page

using a page like a photo album or any gallery is well beyond the allowed formats of use for Google Adsence.

Its not that youre doing it wrong, its just your doing it in the wrong place.
Sorry

Imagine it this way, say you wanted to display Adsence on a page where theres no text and only one picture.
Whats google going to scan your page for?

Sorry anti, but google adsence works fine in coppermine.  I have had it working on several sites.

As gagau said, it has to be placed in the theme/template.html.

@ version, will it display on your site when using other themes?
 
And do you have any file such as .htaccess that may prevent it from working?

My .htaccess file is empty. I tried putting the adsense code into the classic theme of coppermine but still cant get it to show anywhere on the site. It should at least show random ads i would have thought.

So where's the adsence code?  It's not in the template you posted above.

If you are using a banner style ad, try putting it in like this.  As you can see I've just added a row avove the gallery title and logo row, and placed the code there;

Code: [Select]
<body>
  {CUSTOM_HEADER}
  <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="20" cellspacing="20">
    <tr>
      <td valign="top" style="border: 1px solid #666666;background-color:#FFFFFF;">
        <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<!--Added row and Google code -->
  <tr>
            <td colspan="2">
Your adsence code here
</td>
  </tr>
  <!--End Google code -->
          <tr>
            <td>
              <a href="index.php"><img src="themes/classic/images/site_logo.png" border="0" alt="" /></a><br />

I followed the instructions and it worked great.  I just have one small problem that I cannot figure out.  I know the answer is a simple one but it is a simple one that is over my head.  Here is a link to my gallery  http://www.ebonydateconnection.net/cpg/index.php  What I need to know is how do I center my adds at the top like they are at the bottom of the page?

Thanks

like they are at the bottom of the page?
They are not. Both blocks are left-aligned for me. The code you pasted in is crap, you started with <tr><td> outdside a table - this will lead to unexpected results. This is plain HTML, no particular Coppermine skills needed. Just wrap your GoogleAd code into valid HTML (a <div> container with the alignement attribute you like would be fine). Maybe you pasted BS in, because you're trying to hijack a thread made for another theme that is tagged as solved.

Firstly, thanks for the help above in getting the Adsense to work.
Secondly, can I get some assistance in helping to centre my Google ads, I have listed my template.html code and this tends to stay aligned left? I am not conversant with html enough to understand why it is not working...

The site is "justmining.com"
