Support » Plugin: AdRotate - Ad manager & AdSense Ads » IAB TCF v2.0 framework compliance

  • Resolved cnxsoft


    I’ve recently started to get the following message in Adsense:

    We’ve detected an issue on your IAB TC string on one or more of your sites or apps. These errors may affect your ability to serve ads to European users. A detailed report is available for you on the EU user consent page.

    Apparently it’s because we’re supposed not to display any ads before consent is provided to follow IAB TCF v2.0 framework:

    Is it possible to implement this with AdRotate free or pro? If it works with Quantcast Choice it’d be great since it’s the CMP I’m using.

    Consent for what?

    Why would there be a 3rd party involved if this ‘consent’ is between the visitor and Google…
    Shouldn’t AdRotate not just read a cookie or something with that choice?

    I did some further reading. It seems to me that the advert code from Adsense may need a tweak or two to see if consent has been given.

    Additionally a plugin/method may be required to gather consent.
    Similar to those GDPR and CCPA consent plugins.

    If your Adsense code is up-to-date and you have that consent stuff sorted out AdRotate is not involved in this other than outputting the resulting advert. Just like before.

    This also applies to other ad networks such as and Amazon ads.
    The adcode may need to be tweaked to check if consent has been given.

    In every situation you’re gonna need a consent form similar to what GDPR and CCPA already does for cookies.

    Yes, we’re trading in all cookies and free movement for consent buttons… #eusucks

    Noted and thanks for looking into it. I’ll study a bit more. I asked because QuantCast Choice has instructions for Ad Inserter and Advanced Ads plugins. You can see those pinned topics @

    So I was hoping for something similar with Adrotate.

    Ive had a nightmare with this for the last few weeks!
    Adsense: ‘We’ve detected an error on your IAB TC string’


    Hello @petelong thanks for the share

    You haven given a code, but did not explain how it works?!

    I have wordpress website and i want to fix this error

    Is implementing the code will fix the issue with IAB TC?, that’s all?

    If quantcast (or similar plugins) does its thing, then Google can see that and throw the right adverts at the people giving consent.

    As far as I can tell, without consent Google will provide a generic advert instead.
