About this hack:
Advanced Ads for famous Google adsense program (for the program, click here) are now very high-class show in all pages of your forum, many options to offer more than a way of advertising in all pages. this product contains group of main features:
  • Google adsense Manager: system to add, edit and display adsense in your vbulletin forum
  • adsense revenue share: share with admins, friends or users
  • rotate ads: rotate adsense with other ads


why this is better than "Google AdSense Integration" feature:
Google AdSense Integration have only specific packages. And these packages have no options.



but let's take a look on Advanced Google AdSense features



Main features:
  • you can add adsense ads info into your database then call them by variables.
  • You can exclude or add forums, users, usergroups or ips from display ads to them.
  • practicability to show ads in specific locations with tables and borders or css divs.
  • practicability to choose best alignment to show your ads.
  • practicability to add extra ads under side left/right adsense ads.
  • with adsense share you can specifying how many post should user reach, percentage of share and either you want to share users or admins.
  • practicability to show adsense for search in popup forum search menu in navbar.
  • practicability to use old style of adsense code and use it with your fourm.
  • practicability to rotate adsense ads with other program ads for example like bidvertiser.
  • practicability to add specific ads for specific forum.
  • very high classifying options to show your adsene in different locations.


Screenshots:
First: admincp options

Second: google adsense manager
Third: display options pages

Install/upgrade the product:
- upload file cpnav_ain_adsens.xml inside includes\xml (replace it if you are upgrading from 6.0)
- Import product-ain_adsens.xml file (as product): AdminCP > Plugin System > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product] (Allow overwrite if you are upgardeing)


How to use it:
  1. after installation/upgrade go to your forum admin control panel (main page) and check out if your publisherid is empty or not. if it is, ads will not work until you update it. please visit ads setup options page to update it.
  2. in ads setup options, click on the link in the second option. you will be redirected to ads units system to ad your ads. from there you can delete, update or preview your adsense codes. if you planning to use adsense share it's better to add custom adsense unit.
  3. any ads already in your list, you can use it in any template. if your ad unit id is 5 and you want to display it in header template. you can go to header then add this code:
    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

    this in case you want to do it by yourself.
  4. in case you want to display your ads by the avilable option, go to Display options then click on the link you want to edit options in it. for example, you want to mange your adsense ads in forum home page. after you enterd the page, you have to choose locations where you want to show your ads. then on each location you choosed there are place to put ad id you preferd to that location. finally save and enjoy
  5. if you want to exclude users, usergroups, forums or ips you can do it from main options. you will need to take a look on options there.
  6. adsense share is completely optional, if you want to enable sharing take a look on Adsense Share options and if you still have questions I will be here to help if possible.

are you tried to edit any of plugins in the product? because this query run only if you enable adsense revenue share and it's calculate author threads.

try to delete mod and reinstall it. if you want enable revenue share be sure to fill all fields in revenue share options. I checked these options in many times. you should not get any error for this as guest or user.

good luck

I have imported and overwritten the product a few times and uploaded the xml file to includes/xml/xml file

see Screen shot below

I'm having the same problem, but the thing is that I'm not using adsense code... I'm using other advertisment programs... this mod is only for adsense? because I was using v4.0 of this mod and I had all kind of advertisment, not just adsense.....

THANK GOD the 5.2 version is still on for download. Version 6.0 has major problems, as noted in many prior posts here. Don't know what went wrong, as this mod was building to be something very good.

I would highly recommend to the author to go back to the drawing board and pull 6.0 from the the download option, as it has some major issues that simply do not work. 5.2 was literally flawless on my board. 6.0 induced duplicates and the text displays as noted in other prior posts.

I completely uninstalled, got rid of every reference, and it was gone. Installed 6.0 clean and it still picked up things wrong. I'll give it another go this afternoon, but there is something awry in the way this is rendering displays.

Update:

Did the whole clean and reinstall again, and indeed, the problems still exist. In going through the code, there is too much hardcoding of syntax and size requirements for many snippets in the code views via PlugIn Manager (AdminCP).

for example, in the 5.2 version of "adsense [algdeer.net] postbit", it is clean, but in the 6.0 version there are size and type references everywhere. It is almost as if you have made this AdSense and size centric by the coding of it now. not good for me, since I do not use AdSense code with this mod, nor do I have to in 5.2 or prior. When running 6.0 and no Adsense code in the settings, I still get ads (if I put in my pub ID). If not, I get garbage text where I expect Chitika or another ad to appear.

To compare the 2, specifically where I am referring:

6.0 [leaderboard has too many constricting parameters which is what is causing these symptoms] - this is just one example of it and it is pervasive in the other code components comprising the plugin as well:

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

in 5.2, the above does not exist, and therefore does not drive the issues being encountered. It uses hooks more effectively, in my opinion, and avoids the hardcoding issues noted above.

I will stick with 5.2 until all this is resolved. As stated before, this is a great mod with huge potential, but this latest "upgrade" has introduced troubles for many of us.

Keep the faith and I look forward to the next shot at this.

Im sticking with the older version too. It works flawlessly and does what I need it to do.

For those interested, Hendrik at duobloger created some tutorials about integrating adsense in the first post and another about adsense section targetting. I was looking for these instructions like crazy and Hendrik was nice enough to create some tutorials.

Suggestion *This is NOT a Support Request.

I have a suggestion for a feature in a future release.

To fully explain this, I have to explain my situation first.
My forum has 2 styles that a user can choose from; The default one, and a lighter one.

Now, no matter what I do, google ads are going to stick out on one of the styles.
(If I use a dark template for the google ads, they will stick out on the lighter template, and vice versa).

I suggest that you add an option to enter a set of banners/ads codes for each template.

That way, the user will be able to have a set of ads that blends into every template, instead of blending into one perfectly, and sticking out like a sore thumb on another.

A very simple way of doing this would be to have an option in the Admin CP to set the number of styles on the forum. Then, based on the number entered, display that number of "adsnese codes" boxes (Typo in v5.2 - it should be spelt "Adsense")
(These are the boxes that contain the adsense codes that appear on the forum)

Then, underneath each set of boxes, display another field that a user can type the styleid of each style they want.

For example;

A user sets the option to have 3 styles.

3 different sets of adsense code boxes are displayed, with an option underneath that a user types the StyleID of the skin/style that set of google adsense ads are placed on.

You could check which styleID is being used the same way that you check the current user's usergroup ID to decide if ads are shown or not.

Thanks for Considering this,
nNJ

P.S. I sent this same message to you in a PM. I think that it is a relatively simple feature to add, considering the increased level of user custimaztion it will bring
