Adding advertisements with template edits

Is this still the best way to add Google Adsense to the forum, or is there a better option hereabouts?
I would recommend using the new ad_ templates which were introduced with version 1.0.0.

Just paste your code into the appropriate templates.
Where would I need to put my code if I wanted it centered right above the Home > Forum on top of the page and centered right below Home > Forum on the bottom of the page. My site for reference
Use the breadcrumb ad templates for that.
It works perfekt.

I can add any adbox I like but adsense will only show a blank spot! Not the ad. Other banners work fine just not Adsense.

What am I doing wrong?
Assuming you're using a valid AdSense code and account then they will display fine.
Hmm, I use the same account that I have on my blog and the ads work fine. But not on my forum. I added a code last night and this morning it was still blank.

I can add facebook plugins, and other codes fine.

Is there a special code I need to use for adsense to make it work?
<div style="text-align: center; margin-top:8px;">
    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "ca-pub-2340283517533441";
/* mlmsidebar */
google_ad_slot = "4786517978";
google_ad_width = 250;
google_ad_height = 250;
<script type="text/javascript"

This is what I have on now in Forum_list
And this is what I added to the forum_list
<xen:include template="adsense_sidebar" />

With the adsense code :)
Anyone? My Google adsense account works fine. I tryed avery ad I have running on other sites but it will not show up on my forum? Is there some small thing I have to click on?
I hope I am ok to ask this in this thread,

I need to show 1 block add. 250x250 adsense within the last post. So block on the right, content of last post next to it on the left and below
Dumb question.

So, I added the advertisements after first post for non-upgraded users.

How owudl I add a message just before or after the ad saying something like, "Upgrade your account today to enjoy the forums ad-free. Click here to upgrade (link to accounts upgrade)."


Just add the text to the ad template above the ad code.

Something like:

Upgrade your account today to enjoy the forums ad-free.
Click here to upgrade: <a href="{xen:link account/upgrades}">{xen:phrase account_upgrades}</a>

Just change the text and layout so suit.
