Not Supported Template Edits  

Introduction:
I am StarBuG, a clinical Physician for Children, and I am running several health Forums to support patients with medical questions. During the many years I am running my Forums I constantly worked on optimizing my Advertising integrations to maximize my earnings and the user experience using my forums. The click through rates for my Adsense integrations are good to very good for forums and may increase due to further optimizations so mark this mod as installed if you use it to make sure you always use the best optimized version of my adsense integration.

What this mod does:
This mod adds a Google Adsense leaderboard above active users and similar threads below each thread. It is blended to look like the other moduls below the thread without violating google adsense TOS. Make sure you use the same colors you use on your forum to optimize blending!

Installation instructions:

in the template SHOWTHREAD find:


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

and add below:


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

add the following to the template CSS >> additional.css


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

Additional Comments:
Make sure you change all lines marked RED to fit your forum.
If you only want this Advertising shown to guests like I do wrap the above code in this condition:


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

I'm curious about that one too, minus the unregistered/not logged in visitors part. (but wouldn't mind knowing that either)

I'm also interested in adding that same size adsize block underneath the text in the post and not just at the start of it like you did, can you comment on this for us and/or point us in a direction to learn more about this?

If you want the ad below the message text and only in the first post for guests only find this in postbit_legacy template:

and add below:

Why have it above similar threads? I like mine to be right above the quick reply box
http://vgchat.info/forum/threads/153631-Xtreme-Sports
and when someone clicks reply to thread, it shows up in the reply box, under the title and above the editor
