View Full Version : Leaderboard Ad and Custom Display Units
06-12-2010, 02:35 PM
Within the layout options in the Leaderboard Ad and Custom Display Units section it says 'There's also a custom 220x90 advertising unit which includes preset images for Twitter, Facebook, RSS, LinkedIn, YouTube Channel and Clickbank products to instantly monetize your new site.'
Where and how do I put in one of these ad units?
Any help is really appreciated.
All the best,

You enter your Clickbank ID's or social media URL's to display the preset images.
To use the custom html section you insert html code into the custom html boxes at the bottom of the layout section.
Most people either use a small clickbank hopfeed or a small affiliate banner code in this location.

I am continually having problems getting the leaderboard ads to show and I reverted back to usuing my Thesis theme as Socrates didn't work. I just upgraded to 2.03 and they still dont show..
Either I;m doing something wrong or there is a problem with the program with Firefox.
Eitherway it needs sorting and would appreciate some assistance

If you PM me a temporary admin login for the site I can take a look.

I'm seeing the leaderboard ad. Is it still not working when you look? You do have a caching plugin running which might be giving you issues.

I'm running W3 Total Cache
I have refreshed a few time and still not showing in Firefox but continues to show in IE
Why is that?

Refreshing the page will not necessarily get you the latest from the website. Until you have the site looking the way you want, deactivate the caching plugin.

Caching plugins are our biggest headache as you can see by our message at the top of forum. There's nothing wrong with Socrates.. another trick is to load up a different browser to take a look at changes.
You won't see changes until you deactivate your caching plugins and reload the page. No matter what theme you're using, it's always a good idea to deactivate caching when making design changes.

Your's and Lynn's comments have been noted.
I disabled the Cache Plugin over 8 hours ago and the leaderboard ad still isn't showing in Firefox

We're definitely seeing an issue with the 3 column layout and are working on a fix. Sorry for the problems.
07-01-2010, 12:14 PM
I'm sure you'll find a fix..
07-01-2010, 12:48 PM
What are odds we have two Grahams with this issue right now.. i thought I responded to you on another thread, but it was different Graham.
Just posted the fix here..

I have tried but it's telling me that header.php cannot be edited.
07-01-2010, 01:01 PM
It's a permission issue then.
Via FTP or your webhosting file manager you can change the permission of header.php to 666 or you can edit the file directory.
If you need assistance you can FTP me the info and I'll fix.

Is this supposed to fix the leaderboard issue I'm having in Firefox or just the footer overlay?
This is where you may be getting lines crossed with my namesake..the other Graham
07-01-2010, 01:21 PM
I logged in with the information you gave me..
Went to Socrates > Layout
Turned on Leaderboard.
Add text to ad displays fields
Added your RSS field.
Saved.. and it's working fine.
07-01-2010, 01:28 PM
I must be missing something..it's not working for me..
Are you gettim=ng my site mixed up with the other "Graham"?
07-01-2010, 03:15 PM
It would be helpful if you would include your site, in case you don't want to....the site I was referring to ends with the word "house".
Is that yours? if so the leaderboard is displaying.
07-01-2010, 03:27 PM
Just as I thought, wrong site...it's not mine
My leaderboard isnt working
I'll send you a PM

shut off caching when building your website. Clear your browser cache. And if you are using Internet Explorer, switch to firefox.
07-02-2010, 12:51 AM
I did all of that before I started and the Leaderboard ad is not showing in Firefox
07-02-2010, 12:55 AM
I still see the leaderboard ad just fine in FF on the "clothes" site.
