Specified Adsense Code gets modified after saving

  • Anonymous


    Hi. Thanks for this great theme! I just upgraded my site to the latest version of your theme but unfortunately I noticed my Adsense Code suddenly doesn’t work. It worked on the previous version.

    The problem is when I pasted my Google Adsense Code in the Adsense Options. After saving it and viewing the site, I’m seeing a “Web page not available… HTTP error code: 400 Bad Request” message instead of the actual banner ad.

    Going back to Adsense Options on the Settings, I noticed my Adsense Code was implicitly changed into just the following:

    <script type=”text/javascript”>


    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js”&gt;


    So obviously it wouldn’t work because all the Google Adsense info are stripped off. Please fix.





    I tried fixing it from the function.php file but looks like the problem is on the “saving” part and not on the “displaying”. So for now, I just manually inserted my Google Adsense code in the function.php file while I await your fix. Thanks.

    Not a bug, so moved to Support.

    Hard for us to see what is wrong unless you change it back.




    Ok I still think it is a bug. When going to the Appearance – Graphene Options – Adsense Options and then pasting the code below in the Adsense Code textarea field:

    <script type="text/javascript"><!--
    google_ad_client = "my_ad_client_id";
    /* My Ad */
    google_ad_slot = "1234567890";
    google_ad_width = 468;
    google_ad_height = 60;
    <script type="text/javascript"

    Note that I modified some of the values here. Now when you save the options, look at this field again and it becomes:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js">

    So as you can see, all the important code that Google needs gets stripped out. Hope this clarifies the issue and that we can get a fix soon.

    I just tried copying the exact code you posted above and the theme saves the code just fine. Nothing get stripped.

    What version of Graphene and WordPress are you running?



    I’m having a similar problem where I’m inserting the following:

    <script type=”text/javascript”><!–

    google_ad_client = “ca-pub-#############”;

    /* Banner2 */

    google_ad_slot = “####”;

    google_ad_width = 728;

    google_ad_height = 90;



    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js”&gt;


    But my Adsense ads are not displaying. This goes for the option inside Graphene Options as well as using a Text Widget in my footer/sidebar.

    Any ideas as to what I’m doing wrong? Using Graphene 1.4.1 and WordPress 3.2.1. I think this has been happening since Graphene 1.4.

    You can see the blank boxes along my right-hand side bar and in my footer on my main page (http://www.stevivor.com) or between post excerpts throughout the site.




    Well, I can confirm it’s not Graphene doing this to my situation, as I’ve confirmed the same problem with a number of themes. Sorry and thanks!



    I upgraded to Graphene 1.4.1 and using WordPress 3.1.2. Everything was working fine when I was on Graphene 1.3.x.

    For now I have hacked your functions.php file and explicitly inserted my Adsense code. But would be nice if I could specify this code on the Admin Options page. Thanks.

    Maybe I’ll try using IE browser to set this. I was using Chrome when I encountered the issue.
