The Adsense was setup a year ago and has been/is working on other pages - just not the Wiki page.

Have I copied the code (pasted above) correctly? Is there any other ID (CLIENT, CHANNEL or otherwise) that I should be using?

No other IDs are needed...

To verify, view the source code of the page to verify if the Google Adsense script gets generated?

Ok, so I just did some experimentation and tried the AdSense unit instead of the "Channel ID" (as the script requires) and it works!!!!

How are you guys getting it to work using the Channel ID? If it's really the AdSense unit ID I recommend the code be changed to make this clearer - just took me a week to figure it out!

OK finally working, mostly. In the GoogleAdSense.php file, you need to use the AdSense Unit IDs in the config, and NOT the Channel ID. This is what is confusing and the code needs to be re-written to reflect this.

I'm working on the fix now and the new release will cover this, also I will include the new Google custom search as well.

Thanks everyone for comments.

azahar,

Yes, that was the fix. Seems like it's an easy/quick fix to be made to the down loadable php file so others can avoid the same problem in future.

Paul,

please let us know when you get the other improvements!
