Position 1: After 1st post

File to be modded: Display.template.php

Find this in the file:

--- Code: --- // Show the member's signature?
if (!empty($message['member']['signature']) && empty($options['show_no_signatures']))
echo '
<hr width="100%" size="1" class="hrcolor" />
<div style="overflow: auto; width: 100%; padding-bottom: 3px;" class="signature">', $message['member']['signature'], '</div>';

echo '
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td></tr>
</table>
</td></tr>';
[color=red]}[/color]

--- End code ---

Insert this code, just ABOVE the "}" indicated in red, above.


--- Code: --- if ($message['id'] == $context['first_message'])
echo '
<div align="center">
        <script type="text/javascript"><!--
        google_ad_client = "pub-youradsenseID";
        google_ad_width = 468;
        google_ad_height = 60;
        google_ad_format = "468x60_as";
        google_ad_type = "text";
        google_ad_channel ="yourCHANNEL";
        google_color_border = "577494";
        google_color_bg = "577494";
        google_color_link = "FFFFFF";
        google_color_url = "999999";
        google_color_text = "EFEFEF";
        //--></script>
        <script type="text/javascript"
          src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">

  </div>
';

--- End code ---

Position 2: Top of all pages, mimicking a category! (High CTR)

File to be modded: index.template.php

This example is specifically for the smfaqua theme. Necessary modifications may be done for other themes also.

Find this in the file:

--- Code: --- // The main content should go here.  A table is used because IE 6 just can't handle a div.

--- End code ---

Insert this code, just BELOW the code given above.


--- Code: ---echo '
<table width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0"><tr>


<td style="padding: 1ex 1px 2ex 1px;" width="100%" valign="top">
<div class="tborder">
<table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="5" height="72">
<tr>
<td  colspan="4" class="catbg" height="18"><img src="/Themes/smfaqua/images/post_old.gif" class="midimage" alt="No New Posts" title="No New Posts" border="0" />

</tr>

BOTH these have been tested to work seamlessly with the smfaqua theme. Will work in all themes with very little adaptations.

trenchteam:
nice work! The codes work fantastic!  I get about 20,000 impressions a day on my site. It has skyrocketed my google ad clicks using your code! hehe ;D  ten bucks a day is great for paying for my host! ;D

Hey,

Good to know that these simple codes are helping you to earn a good income. Good luck.

yellow1912:
I see in your forum you make it looks esactly like a second post but I couldnt do that. And the template I use is chatbubbles which is quite different from the default

wohoo:
The mimicing a category is very interesting indeed. However, is it allowed ?
The ToS says that you can not make it look like it's part of other links on your site.

I'm just a bit worried. Has anyone contacted Google to see if it's ok to place them like that ?
