    Ad after first post

    I added the common adsense forum integration of an ad after the first post. The reason is that in my upcommon optimization article I mention this as a recommendation and so its easier to illustrate if I do it here.

    I don't track it separately from the other adcodes and I don't think I have enough uniques on this forum for accurate statistics.

    Chris - did you use a vb hack for this?

    I'm testing "vB Ad Management" - but can only get my ads to show to registered users... if they aren't registered - no ads

    Yes I did, it was a specific "adsense" hack for vb 3.0 that I only had to do minor edits to for it to work in vb 3.5.
    Put this at the very end of your postbit_legacy template, obviously changing your google id.
    PHP Code:
    <if condition="$post[postcount] == 1">

    $spacer_open
    <div style="padding:0px 0px $stylevar[cellpadding]px 0px">

    <
    table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]border="0" width="100%" align="center">

    <
    tr>
        <
    td class="alt1" align="center">
    <
    script type="text/javascript"><!--
    google_ad_client "pub-3280446741348688";
    google_ad_width 728;
    google_ad_height 90;
    google_ad_format "728x90_as";
    google_ad_type "text_image";
    google_ad_channel ="4554257847";
    google_color_border "DFDFDF";
    google_color_bg "DFDFDF";
    google_color_link "DD0A2D";
    google_color_text "000000";
    google_color_url "DD0A2D";
    //--></script>
    <script type="text/javascript"
      
    src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
    </script>
        </td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    </div>
    $spacer_close

    </if>

    Be sure to check out this thread on vB.com. It's got some good info and links to code snippets.

    It's already been like that since september last year

    Anyway, I doubt you get much clicks on these forums since even if we (webmasters) do recognize them, we usually don't click.

    I agree with Emancipator: it's not really intrusive or anything.
