[1.10.x] Adsense plugin doing nothing

My b2evolution Version: 1.10.x

I installed the adsense plugin and it displays the button which seems to function correctly (inserts [adsense:] when I click it), but the [adsense:] just shows up as-is in my posts. What can I do?

Here is [url=]the description[/url] of the plugin. It sais:

In order to get an actual AdSense ad in there, you must go to the plugin Settings and copy/paste your personalized ad code from the Google AdSense site.

so you go to the backoffice -> App settings-> Plugins, click the Adsense plugin and add your Adsense code.
In the post the plugin will replace [Adsense:] by the actual code you added in the backoffice.

Good luck

Does the [adsense:] work if you place it before the [more:]?

Aug 06, 2007 02:08

I tried it and it didn't work there either.

Well it's the easiest type of plugins so I'm a bit out of ideas. Last resort: try backoffice -> Tools -> Delete prerendered Item cache.

I had it running within three minutes in my testlab.

Good luck

Well, some other ideas:
- uninstall and install again
- upload the plugin again
- check in backoffice -> App settings -> Plugins if the dot before Adsense plugin is black and not white
- click backoffice -> App Settings -> Plugins -> Reload events and codes for installed plugins.

Crack open the plugin and see if it has a line like this :


function GetDefaultSettings( & $params )

If it does then change it to this and see if it starts working ;)


function GetDefaultSettings()

hi. would adsense plugin work for 1.9.3?

Aug 06, 2007 17:44

I hate to say this, but still no luck. Should I change it back?

Not without amending the code, it requires triggers that weren't available prior to 1.10.x

Leave it as it is for the moment and edit and re-save your original test post and see what happens.

And still no closer to an idea what's wrong.

What should the plugin settings be for adsense plugin?

Aug 07, 2007 15:41

For the moment (testing purposes) there is no need to add the adsense content. The plugin will create a clearly distinguishable warning that is more than only [adsense:]

Aug 07, 2007 16:23

I meant the other settings, I have:
Code: evo_adsense
Priority: 10
Apply Rendering: Opt-out

Aug 07, 2007 16:28

These are identical to my settings. If you think there is a conflict with another plugin you can raise the priority (max = 100).

Aug 07, 2007 17:03

Played with the priorities. Nothing there either.

I downloaded the plugin from the plugin directory, and it appears if you look in the comments that others have had the same problem.
Is there another place I can get the file where it might work?

Aug 08, 2007 08:28

Ok, I've just installed this ( after installing 1.10.2 ) and it works without any problems ( after removing the & $params mentioned earlier )

I'm assuming that you do have the plugin ticked for the post that you're trying to use it in?


Aug 08, 2007 15:19

Lol, didn't know you had to do that.

Sorry, I could've saved everybody a lot of time here!

Aug 08, 2007 15:38

:> We've all had our moments of glory. LOL

Maybe not *quite* that muppet ;)

Try changing Apply Rendering: Opt-out to ALWAYS

I was having the same problem and this fixed it. The plugin was working when I placed it in a new post but it would not work in an edited post.
