The Google AdSense 2 extension allows the easy addition of Google AdSense advertisements to a MediaWiki instance. See screenshot and Installation for details. This extension requires an account with Google's AdSense.

Installation[edit | edit source]

  • Download the extension
  • Add the following lines to your LocalSettings.php (replace the text where directed), putting any $wgGoogle... globals after the require_once statement:

For example:

$wgGoogleAdSenseClient = 'pub-8330046405419293';
$wgGoogleAdSenseSlot = '1640430293';
$wgGoogleAdSenseID = 'yourwiki-2';
  • Add any of the optional settings below, if your settings deviate from the defaults
// Width of the AdSense box, specified in your AdSense account
$wgGoogleAdSenseWidth = 120;
// Height of the AdSense box, specified in your AdSense account
$wgGoogleAdSenseHeight = 240;
// Source URL of the AdSense script
$wgGoogleAdSenseSrc = "http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js";
// Show the AdSense box only for anonymous users
$wgGoogleAdSenseAnonOnly = true;
require_once( "$IP/extensions/GoogleAdSense/GoogleAdSense.php" );

$wgGoogleAdSenseClient = 'replace this with the client name'; $wgGoogleAdSenseSlot = 'replace this with the slot name'; $wgGoogleAdSenseID = 'replace this with your ID';
  • If you want to add a "Text/image, 200x200" into the vector skin you will need to shift the left panel over slightly. Add the following to the MediaWiki:Vector.css page
#content, #footer { margin-left: 11em; }
#left-navigation  { left: 11em; }
  • The description (label) of the portlet can be changed in [[MediaWiki:Googleadsense]]. Defaults to "Google AdSense".
  • Remember to disable ad-blocking services such as AdBlock when you want to see if the extension is working!
