    Hi

    I have several add groups defined in my website and applied inside some widgets in wordpress, using the Advanced Usage (Shortcode)

    But when I get into the website, adds are shown in places that were not defined for them. This is creating problems due to the differences between size of the adds and the size of widgets.

    How can I avoid this problem?
    How can ensure that an add is shown only in the selected groups?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Can you share the shortcode you used?

    Hi

    I use different codes based on the different positions in my website. I have 15 add groups in total.

    In the lateral bar of the post I use [dfads params=’groups=118&limit=6′], inside the lateral bars widget in a text area. This area is only for 250×250 banners

    For the upper widget (468×60 banner on top) I use [dfads params=’groups=135&limit=1′]

    Each area is intended for a certain size of banners, and quite often I see banners from different sizes in areas that are not for that size.

    It looks like your shortcodes are using different characters for the single quotes.

    Also, since you seem to be using WP-Super-Cache, you could try returning your ads via JS.

    Try these shortcodes in place of the ones you mentioned above:

    
    [dfads params='groups=118&limit=6&return_javascript=1']
    
    [dfads params='groups=135&limit=1&return_javascript=1']
    

    Hope this helps!

    Hi

    It improves the situation in the lateral bar, but I still see 250×250 banners in the top area (intended to be for 468×60). I checked and I don’t have any banner of this size in that area.

    Is this new code affecting SEO?

    Are you using the return_javascript=1 in all of your shortcodes?

    Hi

    I have put this code in all areas. Let’s see if it works.

    Hi

    This problem is still not fixed. In the bottom widget I have the code [dfads params=’groups=137&limit=1&return_javascript=1′], with is inteded to show only 1 ad, and all ads are 250×250 px. As you can see in http://www.recursosenprojectmanagement.com, this is not happening.

    Do you have a mail to send you some screenshots?
    Is your plugin compatible with the last version of WordPress?

    Hi

    I see in the code you shared you have this:

    [dfads params=’groups=137&limit=1&return_javascript=1′]

    But you are using 2 different styles of single quotes. You have and .

    Please use this code instead:

    [dfads params='groups=137&limit=1&return_javascript=1']

    You must always ensure that your shortcodes only contain single quotes like this one: '.

    Hope this helps!
