    The plugin shows the plugin author ads instead of your own even thought you have set donations to zero, so be aware of this and use another plugin if you don't want to share your revenue.

    The pub-id that is inserted on your site instead of your own seems to be pub-2941637122112958

    I don't think so, you must have put something else in the box instead of 0 or you didn't save.

    well I can't reproduce your results with my test set up and since no one else has raised this issue to me, I think it is something wrong with your setup. If you want, give me access to your wp installation and I can take a look at your setup. You can use the contact form on my website.

    Sir, I noticed the same thing. Why are you asking for forced donation? Nothing is wrong in his setup. I have seen the same thing in my installation. Why don't you simply charge for it? and we will pay.

    But please check this issues as quickly as possible

    well, then give me access to your wordpress installation, you can message me thru my website linewbie.com, I'll have a look to see what's going on, I can not reproduce what you are saying on my own installation. if I put 0 in the box, then the donation is disabled. There is no forced donation, so please do not accuse me of that, or at least until I see proof of what you are saying is true or provide us with the logic from the plugin source code of how "forced donation" is being implemented?

    I'm wandering, richardandrews and vigge_sWe, are you of the same person? since one id was just registered yesterday, and what these two forum accounts ever posted is accusing me of "forced donation" and nothing else. When I said "no one else has complained", then the other account shows up immediately, an account that never posted anything else before.

    I'm still waiting for your message to see the proof btw.

    We are not the same person. And by the way, just run a search on this forum for your plugin and you will find many other threads and person telling the same

    You are making up stories again, show me the link to the thread where "forced donation" is proven? I'm still waiting for you to show me your proof and/or code logic in the plugin that would substantiate your accusation.

    Non of these posts indicate that by putting a 0 in donation, the donation is not disabled. What you are saying is, if you put 0 in donation, the donation is still not disabled, isn't it? I need to see proof of your accusation.

    I'm still waiting for you to show me your wordpress installation and/or code that substantiate your accusation, please show me these or stop posting non-sense.

    Tried to use the contact form at: http://www.linewbie.com/contact and it wouldn't send.

    Just hoping you can confirm I installed/configured all-in-one adsense correctly. I entered the publisher ID so it should be good to go.

    Also, I kept the default contribution. You deserve to be paid. If I actually start to make money, I'll up the percentage. It's a brilliant plugin.

    And, assuming it is installed/configured correctly, does Google Adsense now track it and handles any payout?

    Thanx

    yes, once you entered your own publisher ID, your site will start showing your ads, google will track it correctly.

    Again, if you are so sure, guitarjosh, I'd like to see you paste me the source code from the plugin that would substantiate your accusation. Thanks.

    I don't really care to take the time to sift through code to prove a point when the author has already been proven dishonest and it's already been proven that you've done this. Feel free to see the following thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/all-in-one-adsense-and-ypn-is-not-free?replies=16

    Other threads show that you didn't admit it until caught. The fact that you've been proven dishonest in the past shows a lack of integrity and takes away any defense you have right now. You lied. You've been caught. Buzz off.

    guitarjosh, that thread is from two years ago, and what did I lie about? Back then when the very first version of this plugin came out, I put the disclaimer directly in the code as a comment, you had to read the code to see it, and there were no option in the frontend, that's all.

    I admit it was a bad design, I assumed the wordpress plugin users were advanced enough to read/modify code, and apparently I was wrong, users didn't like it. So in all subsequent versions I put the disclaimer and option in the frontend where everyone is able to see clearly. I'm not sure where was I "proven dishonest"? Plus, in the two year old thread you mentioned, people provided source code from the plugin to support their claim, you provided nothing, just empty accusation. Also you have just admitted you did not read the plugin source code, so how do you even know your accusation is true? I'm quite puzzled.

    Any updates regarding the statements that even putting 0% doesn't disable the donation Percentage?
    http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-ppc-seo-discussion-forum/299662-warning-all-one-adsense-ypn-plugin-users.html

    That warrior forum thread is quite recent, I'm sure that we all would APPRECIATE an offical answer by you on that forum (either they're slandering you, or they're telling the truth).

    @flapane, I do not reply to threads anywhere else except here. As I have stated numerous times, if you set it to 0, then it's 0. I find it funny that in the url you gave, the poster used a "test' channel, instead of just reading the plugin source code and understand how the logic really works. Since everything on wordpress is open source, I don't quite understand why he had to do a "test" instead of reading the code and the code will clearly tell him that setting to 0 is 0. His "test" is either setup wrong or he's lying, since I see another person already said:

    DireStraits 03-17-2011, 08:28 AM
    "Well, I can honestly say, David, that I changed the PHP code for my plugin to utilise my own AdSense Publisher ID and a custom channel and, with the percentage box (in the plugin configuration panel) set to 0%, I've never seen any impressions or clicks show up on that channel over the last few months.

    So I'm not entirely convinced there ever was anything underhand/sneaky going on with this plugin. Just be sure to put a "0" in the appropriate box within the plugin's configuration panel, and you should be a-okay. "

    so are you saying if we dont put a 0 in the donation slot, then we have been automatically donating 5% of our earnings to you? if so, im sorry but thats sneaky, its like forced continuity. let us choose the amount to donate, thats what other developers do.

    i can guarantee you the more people find out the more people will be pissed off. this really rubbed me the wrong way, i just paid you thousands of dollars and didnt even know it.

    @jcbradley, take a look at the setting page, in the area of the donation, did I or did I not state what you just said clearly in plaintext? how is this "sneaky" or "forced"? You CAN choose what amount to donate, and 0 is an option. Why did you set other settings correctly to display your google ad, but miss this setting?

    jcbradley I beg to differ. I have been using the All in One Adsense and YPN plugin for years now and even though at the start I was new to wordpress and plugins, his donation method was very clear and up front, no confusion at all. When you install the plugin and go to the plugin settings screen, the option to donate is clearly shown and the author explains how it works and lets you easily opt out if you don't want to share. Why would you activate a plugin and then not go to the settings page, where you would easily see this? If you enter 0, then donation is turned off (I have read the code and can confirm that's the way it works). Nothing is sneaky or hidden with this plugin as far as I'm concerned.
