Adsense Code In Custom HTML Widget | Forum

Mark Jun 1 '12
Whether you post adsense code inside a custom HTML widget it stops all other javascript code from working.

If the adsense code is hard-coded into the template then all works fine.

In firebug the only error i see is in ow.js

url is undefined
if ( url.indexOf("?") != -1)
This has been tested by using the default Graphite theme (re-downloaded a fresh copy) and has been tested with all plugins enabled and then all plugins disabled (minus newsfeed).

same issue I was having mark when I said if I put a ad on my side bar and I still have this issue it was never resolved even though it does not effect everyone the same there seems to be a point at which this bug shows its ugly face

yeh im going to do some further testing on it, my modified ow.js fixes post of the javascript problems that members have experienced, however i wanna tackle the problem head on now.

I remember someone mentioning that the adsense code was causing a bug and it was being looked into however i could not find the thread.

the weird part is it only happens when the code is wrapped inside a custom HTML widget, if its hard-coded via a template or view file it seems to work fine.


This stops the invite pop-up from working in groups too.

It also stops any widgets settings (by clicking on the cog) from opening
