Do not show ads to post-related membergroup.

I am using AdSense on my forum.
The forum also has a "0 posts" membergroup who can see just 1 board, the "introduce yourself board".
Because there's only one board for those members, they get to see a lot of ads. This is very anoying so I want to exclude some of the ads for the "0 posts" membergroup.

What do I have to ad to my code, (the "0 posts" membergroup is membergroup 4).
This is the code that I am using for the ads:

echo '
  <div><br /><script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-*************************";
/* 728x90, gemaakt 28-2-09 na infocenter */
google_ad_slot = "7162697257";
google_ad_width = 728;
google_ad_height = 90;
//-->
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script></div>
  ';

I am using this code now:


if (in_array(0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12, $user_info['groups']))   
{
echo '
  <div><br /><script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-*************************";
/* 728x90, gemaakt 28-2-09 na infocenter */
google_ad_slot = "7162697257";
google_ad_width = 728;
google_ad_height = 90;
//-->
</script>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">
</script></div>
   ';   
   }
   else   
   {       
   echo 'geen advertentie!';
   }


I cannot figure out why the ads never show up.
I have a testaccount which is a member of post-related-group 4, but it stil shows 'geen advertentie" instead of the ad.

Try that first line as:
if (in_array(array(0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12), $user_info['groups']))

You might consider reducing that list; 1 = admin, 2 = global moderator.

Thanks for your very fast answer!

I have reduced the line (it is just a testforum).

Now it is like this:
if (in_array(array(2,3,4,5,6), $user_info['groups'])) 

The ad still doesn't show up to my test account which is in group 4.

Here is a larger part of the code from the index.template:
// Show the menu here, according to the menu sub template.
template_menu();

//Google Adsense
if (in_array(array(2,3,4,5,6), $user_info['groups'])) 
{
echo '
  <div><br /><script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-0096549331063923";
/* Bluesforum.com 728x90, gemaakt 28-2-09 na infocenter */

   }
   else   
   {       
   echo 'geen advertentie!';
   }

echo '

// Show the navigation tree.
theme_linktree();

echo '

OK, just for testing purposes, before the if(in_array())... add print_r($user_info['groups']) to see a list of what groups the user is allegedly part of.

I have tried adding that, but the list doesn't show up.

This is the code now:

//Google Adsense
   print_r($user_info['groups']);
if (in_array(array(2,3,4,5,6), $user_info['groups'])) 
{
echo '
  <div><br /><script type="text/javascript"><!--

   ';   
   }
   else   
   {   
   echo 'geen advertentie!!';
   }

Hmm, curious then. Seems to be saying that $user_info['groups'] isn't an array, which is very weird indeed, since it should ALWAYS be an array with at least two items in.

Hm.

What happens if you make that print_r into var_dump, i.e. var_dump($user_info['groups']) ?

So there's no type juggling.

Hmm, weird, very weird, unless I'm misreading what the description of in_array is supposed to do when matching an array (since I rarely use that function)

Should be doable with: (rearranging and tweaking for performance)
if (in_array(4, $user_info['groups']) || in_array(2, $user_info['groups']) || in_array(5, $user_info['groups']) || in_array(6, $user_info['groups']))

You could have it apply to 0 first actually since that's all regular members (including all post count groups); only those who don't have an assigned primary group (like admin, global moderator) would have 0 as a group. Also group 3 isn't a real group.

You can take the var_dump line out now we figured out the problem :)

Good to see it's working though.
