Question New version installed - no banners showing

I have gone thru every option I can think of to figure out why the banner ad is not showing, but I can't find the problem. I upgraded to the new GAB and I have an ad set to show as it has for a few months, but it doesn't show. I confirmed that the graphic file is there, the path is correct, etc. (See attached screenshot) but the ad is not showing. I just determined that it is showing for guests and for registered members but not for me as an Admin. I checked the usergroup page (see attached) and the ad should be seen by all usergroups. Any ideas?

Are you blocking the ad by using something like Firefox with Adblock? What about the 'Usergroups that can turn off ads' tickboxes under settings?

No adblock. The only usergroup that can turn off ads is the Admin (me). Screen capture attached. Unless I need to create a new field for turning off banner ads (see attached) I don't see anything that would be causing this.

Untick that box.
  • Profile field to turn off ads - The Profile Field that signals whether or not ads are shown. If no profile field is selected, ads are not shown to the selected usergroups.
  • Value for field to be 'off' - If a Profile Field is selected, the value of the field that indicates that the user does not want to see ads! You may wish to add a new Profile Field for this purpose.
