[nodebb-plugin-google-adsense] Google Adsense
pinging @dove, the plugin is still not working properly. My ads are no longer showing. Only the default ad from Google is showing.
@planner Did you try to clear your cache?
Yes, I did. Some times it works, that is, shows my ads. Other times, it doesn't and shows a default ad. Perhaps we need a button on the ACP to clear the cache server-side.
Right now, it looks like I have to clear the cache on every single page before the proper ad shows.
Hm, Are you really running latest version? It should be 0.0.4. Because I have exactly same plugin installed here http://manutdforums.com it is working for me, can you check if it is working for you too?
Edit: Try reinstalling plugin completely with
npm remove nodebb-plugin-google-adsenseand then
npm install nodebb-plugin-google-adsense
@dove, do you have the time to apply the solution suggested by @bentael here to the plugin, that is,, the use of
action:page.load, so that the ads will load on every user activity. Right now the ads show only on browser refresh.
Small request: can you leave out the
"http:"in the ad-sense URL in
main.js? Now some browsers get a security warning when the forum is running with HTTPS. If you leave out the protocol, the browser will automatically user HTTP or HTTPS depending on what was used to load the page with the ad-sense link.
Thanks a lot!.
@dove Is this plugin still working in this version.

The plugin seems to have some issues for me.
The ad for inside the post (I have it on the right side) is working perfectly fine from what I can see.
The bottom does not appear at all,
If I activate the ad in header breaks my forum and makes it inaccessible to everyone.
I have the latest version of nodebb.
hmm.. has anybody successfully run a site with Adsense?
I know Adsense doesn't really work with Discourse because of Ajax (the 3 ad rule gets triggered--search the Discourse forum). I guess it doesn't work with Nodebb either?
That would be a real bummer.
If nodebb can assemble the pages server-side so adsense will work, it would be a big advantage over Discourse.
Not being able to use adsense is a dealkiller for a lot of people.
I don't think google adsense works with ajax, however I managed to get http://www.google.ca/doubleclick/publishers/small-business/ working in a widget for more than 3 page views.
I followed their guide and placed the code they give into the header of the page with the custom JS tab from ACP and then placed a widget that has this in it.
If you don't mind cold loading pages you can always disable ajaxify, that will serve a brand new page for every link and thus will be compatible with adsense.
EDIT: The other possibility would be to cache your adsense html and serve the same ad for every page, until the user comes back or refreshes manually

Is it not possible each time a page has got a new focus, it reloads only the ad block with a js event? I don't know if I am clear ^^
Getting the error below for version 6.0

@jun I have this too. I think this plugin is out of date now. Would be nice to see a v0.6.x compatible version.

Can someone npm install this one and see if it now works for v0.6.x?
I don't have an AdSense account yet =(
@Drew-Llewellyn It's out of date, I'll create a PR for it later on. But it's down to the original dev to merge it.
@Drew-Llewellyn I've got the following error:
ver. NodeBB v0.6.0.

Is there an update for this? Even a branch/fork? (new to git as well!) to get it working?
I been looking to try and work out how to fix but I'm still in learning mode.
