Can't Get In Post

I'm new to WPMU dev as a full year paid member. This is my second plug in I've downloaded and I can't get it to work. The other one is the Ultimate FB plug in, which I'm still hoping to figure out as I'm in discussion with your support folks.

With this plugin...I have it all setup and created my add. I can do a preview of it fine, but when I publish a post or republish and old post I see nothing....no ad?

my blog site is http://www.visaapplicationuk.com/uk-visa-information-assistance/

My settings are....

Settings
Custom Ads
Enable Custom Ads Yes
Live mode Yes
Disabling this will only show your ads to logged in users
Do NOT turn this on until you are ready to go live

Please help me figure what I'm doing wrong....this is a new install of the plugin and I just set it up according to the questions above. When I publish a post, I don't see any in post ads.

Thanks,
Scott

    Yep, I got the 1.1 version and have it all setup with the simple settings. My sample ad previews fine. But when publishing or republishing a post, no ad. I chose to just show one ad per page....are my settings okay?

    I guess I will have to wait until the bugs are worked out. I didn't think getting into the paid membership area would lead me to buggy plugins. Thought these to be thoroughly tested before delivery.

    Thanks!

    Hi Scott, these guys are professionals. I've had many issues before and they helped them out thoroughly and professionally. Granted that there are still issues to be ironed, they are listening. I have no regrets getting my year of membership, and neither should you. The latest version is working pretty well on my end now, and hope the same goes for you real soon! :slight_smile:

    Hi,

    Thank you for the link, it really helped me understand what's going on. The problem is, the plugin counts paragraphs that are the immediate first child of your post element. This is to prevent injecting Ads in middle of multiline blockquotes or lists by default.

    In the latest version (v1.2, just released), we have added a bit more control over what can be counted as markup element. In plugin settings, you may want to look for the "Advanced" section, "Elements selector" setting. You can change that setting to a selector that better suits your theme. It will accept any valid CSS selector and count the elements that match this selector instead.

    For an example, on your site you may want to use simple "p" (instead of default ">p"). Also, by changing this selector to something more advanced, you could do some pretty advanced stuff, e.g. insert Ads only in your "question" or "answer" sections, etc.

    Okay Thanks...I'm going to get the v1.2 and see what we come up with. I like the concept, but yes I think the problem is each of my posts are sometimes only one paragraph...anyways, I will play around with it and see what I can make happen with the new version of the plug-in.

    Thanks VeBailovity! Great stuff!

    Elements selector <p I tried p and still doesn't work.

    http://www.visaapplicationuk.com/uk-visa-information-assistance/

    Please take a look at my settings and let me know what I have wrong. I tried the Elements Selector setting at both default <p and p, both ways don't work.

    What I'm doing is changing the settings then going to an old post and reposting it. Then I'm also adding a new post to see if the ad will show up, but nothing yet,

    Thanks for the help.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Hi,

    Just a quick note, there is an error with the selector you entered instead of default - it should be ">p", not "<p". There is an easy way to revert to default selector with 100% accuracy - just delete everything from the "Elements selector" field and save the changes. After that, the selector will automatically revert to its default value.

    Having said that, you want to enter "p" (without quotes) into your "Elements selector" box, so it looks like this: http://i55.tinypic.com/2j3shue.png

    This, combined with your other settings, will give us something like this as a result: http://i52.tinypic.com/nywdbs.png

    That's most likely not what we want. This happens because we're now targeting all P elements in your post, including the ones wrapped around the head cliparts and their tagline below ("Michael asks..."). To prevent that, we can just move our first injection point a bit further. If you change your "Inject first Ad after this many paragraphs" to "3" (without quotes), you should get something like this: http://i56.tinypic.com/14e7ud5.png

    Also, one last note - the plugin works on the single post pages *only*. So, for an example, there will be no ads on this page: http://www.visaapplicationuk.com/uk-visa-information-assistance/ regardless of your settings. However, the ads should appear accodring to your settings on single post pages, such is this: http://www.visaapplicationuk.com/uk-visa-information-assistance/2011/08/19/question-about-uk-settlement-visa-documents-processing-time/
