Blank Adsense ads on certain pages

October 23, 2011 08:03PM
I have inserted my adsense code into my site in certain areas, and the issue is very strange: ads only randomly work on some pages, and others the ad block still 'loads', but nothing appears. Just a black box.

When you load the homepage page, you see the ad...but clicking on the forums tab takes you to another page with the **exact same ad code**, but nothing loads. You can even rightclick where the ad should be and you can see the iframe it inserted. If you go to the forums and navigate the member list, random profiles show ads, others do not. Certain forums show ads, other ads do not. Certain forum topics show ads, other don't. Refreshing the page does not help. This stays consistent across multiple browsers.

The forum has a "SEO" function available, which I have enabled so the URLs look better. The .htaccess file if I had gone with apache is structured as follows:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
Options -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

Turning the SEO URL function to 'off' removes the issue of ads not appearing, but this isn't acceptable for us. It just makes me think I have done something wrong in the NGINX config file.

Here is the site-available file I have done for this website:


##redirect to www
server {
server_name twinkinfo.com;
rewrite ^/(.*) http://www.twinkinfo.com/$1 permanent;

server {

server_name www.twinkinfo.com;
root /home/username/www;

location / {
index index.php;
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php;

location ^~ /page {

#?q=$uri&$args; required for in-line JS editor
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&$args;

##This is the catch-all for .php files

location ~ \.php$ {
include fastcgi_params;
include fastcgi_config;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
try_files $uri =404;

## Disable viewing .htaccess & .htpassword

location ~ /\.ht {
deny all;


upstream backend {


I've been messing with this for days and can't seem to figure out a reason behind it. If anyone can offer suggestions I would be most grateful.
