Ad after first post tutorial doesn't work
I've done this ( )tutorial four times now and my ad still doesn't show after the first post.

I've done exactly what the tutorial says. I'm using $GAB_ads[0] which is the same as the billboard under my navbar.

The only thing I couldn't find in the tutorial is the Execution Order for the GAB ad between posts plugin. Here it shows 5.

Software: vBulletin 3.8.1

I'm using it here after every 5th post with no issues.

Yep, just tested and it works fine. Check what scripts and forums you have set for the banners, what categories you are using for the billboards, and what billboards you are using for the scripts.

After hours of testing on my forum, uninstalling mods and even installing a fresh vBulletin with GAB I finally found the problem.

You both use "Use Legacy (Vertical) Postbit Template: NO" (Style & Language Settings ) on your forums. When using the Vertical Legacy (YES) the tutorial won't work.

I placed the HTML code in the postbit_legacy template and now it works. I think it would be wise to put this in the tutorial!
