Can I just ask, what does the collapsible ad unit do? What does it show?


Thanks again

It's optional.

The collapsing ad unit code will 'collapse' your ad unit so that it takes up no page space if there are no relevant ads available. This allows you to minimize any blank space that would otherwise occur through the use of alternate colors.

Hi,

i had added all types of ad units explained in the article yesterday, and they were showing fine. Today when i see i dont see a single ad.

Also i tried to add a tower ad at one more place on my forum home page here at www.officechai.com/forum .. but i dont see at all.

The ad [AdSense unit: Sponsor Lance120x240, towerHome] is active in google adsense ..
I also went through all the trouble shooting steps, but to no avail.

where could I've gone wrong :confused:

here is the adcode:

<td class="alt5" align="left"> <span class="smallfont">
<a href="http://www.nasscom.in/" target="_blank">Nasscom</a> <br />
<a href="http://www.intellibuzz.net/" target="_blank">Intellibuzz Communications</a> <br />

<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-nnnnnnnnnn";
/* Sponsor Lance120x240, towerHome */
google_ad_slot = "nnnnnn";
google_ad_width = 120;
google_ad_height = 240;
//-->
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script>

I've got this one figured out.. thanks

Please can someone help... my template is not the default one, and I'm having a problem with the 468x15 adsense unit.

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/

As you can see in the screenshot above, the unit is below the navibar but I want it to be moved down into the next box, which is currently empty.

Any idea what part of code the box is in?


Thanks for any help

Is this still OK to use? It's a couple of years old, has anything changed?

NeutralizeR 09 Oct 2008 17:47

I think it's still good enough to start with.

Anybody able to help? :(

If you followed this guide it must be the container table of the 728x90 ad unit.
Move the 468x15 link unit's code to there.

glenbelt 14 Oct 2008 10:16

Thanks NeutralizeR.

I've moved some code, and now the link unit has gone (which is good), but there is now just an empty space (about 728x90 in size) but no advert is displayed.

When I go to my URL/collapsible-ad-unit.html it loads the page but doesn't display an advert. Could this be why it also doesn't display an advert on the forum?


Thanks for any help again

NeutralizeR 14 Oct 2008 10:53

Hmm... i checked your page source code and noticed you have the wrong ad code for the 728X90 ad unit. You have double "" for one of the values.

Thanks very much for pointing that out, really didn't notice it :( :o

Thanks for all the help, seems to be working fine now

--------------- Added 15 Oct 2008 at 11:43 ---------------

Sorry to post again but got another question. When I click on someone's post, it shows a section below their post which is labelled "Sponsored Posts". Any idea which part of the template this is in?


Thanks

NeutralizeR 17 Oct 2008 12:55

It must be a differrent modification. I don't remember something like that.

Markos 02 Jan 2009 23:09

I have been working for quite some time together with Vbulletin and Adsense. Those placements are good, but there are better ones.

Check out two of my articles:
-The best Vbulletin Adsense locations
-Adsense training Video
