XF 1.1 ad_message_below template not working


Hey All,

Before opening up a ticket I wanted to post my issue here. I'm trying to get ads going (XenForo 1.1.5 - no plugins - fresh install after a VBB import) after a number of posts in a thread. Now I've been reading up on this here in the forums (conditions etc) but thus far I am unable to inject ads into the ad_message_below template.

Nothing I insert there shows up. Even a simple TXT does not show up:

<xen:hook name="ad_message_below" />dfgjfkldjgjkldf

This will not show dfgjfkldjgjkldf

When trying conditions nothing shows up either, example:


<xen:if is="{$post.position} % {$xenOptions.messagesPerPage} == 1">
googltag code here

The interesting thing is that when I inject this code into any other ad_ template, it works .. just not with ad_message_below

Now if I insert the code into ad_message_body, it all works fine, but that obviously is not where I want the ads to show up.

Does anyone have any ideas ?

Can you post a link to a page where you think the code should be showing and it isn't?

Ensure your message template hasn't been modified to remove the include.

Failing that, can you provide an ACP login so I can check?


Hello Brogan, the test site is behind HT protection. I'll will PM you with some details so you can have a peek + get an ACP login sorted for you. Thanks.
