I had these working in many of the forums and went to make a change on one and got an error. Now none of the Option to display these islands in between posts is working.

They only work on columns and not between post????

Please any advice would b great!

Thx Mike

Well the syntax looks correct.
Although the width is extremely large for a side island.
Not knowing what forum you used it in.
Can you provide a url link to the forum it should appear in?
Does a ad show at all?
Did you select the island in custom inserts for the forum?
Did you enable viewing ads in the forum permissions also?

FYI,
I do see a google search ad island in most of the forums.

Does there happen to be any data after "EOF;" (spaces, lines, anything)?

I will check them all, as I think if one does it breaks the whole chain of all customs right?

Tip
Custom islands start from the lowest number first or top down.
Disable them may be a easier way to find the source of the problem.

Even turn them all off and see if the problem exists.

And when checking the code in the custom islands scroll down sometimes there is a line off screen and you dont see the scroll bars for looking.

Sorry i was thinking about the main portal settings, but you have them in various places.

Ok
Open a text document, copy and paste.

Save the changes to the custom island.

ctrl+f5 on you forum to see if you get the error.

No error put it back and move on to the next one.

Its a needle in a hay stack but its the only way your going to get to the answer.

If you only made the change on one of the islands then you can start with that code.

If you can not see it when logged in then its a permissions thing with the forum settings via the control pannel.
I'm not registered but i can see that advert.

If there is additional data after the eof; it can break the island; it shouldn't break them all though.

Use a different browser to check your permissions, i dont know why but chrome has been playing up.
I can use IE and get a clean slate.

Permissions i meant Control pannel

Forum Permissions > Must view Ad Island

see what you have set there so who can see them.

Unless you give us as link to a section we can see with the blank we cant help as i can see your advert or am i missing something.

It'll fail in every browser, it's checking the permissions on the webserver for that folder; it's saying that the folder isn't chmodded 777.

Default Custom island code

PHP Code
/* PHP CODE HERE, IF NECESSARY */

/* DO NOT CHANGE THE LINE BELOW */
$body = <<<EOF

Body of the custom box here

EOF;
/* DO NOT CHANGE THE LINE ABOVE */ 


Notice NO php tags
<?php php?>

Yours above has when it works and does not when its broken.

I dont have php tags in my custom islands.

Sorry G i get mixed results. it even hangs the page in chrome waits about 10 seconds and then gives me the rest of the results.
IE displays instantly, and green.

Not pinned down the cause and put it down to chrome version. Its possible.

I would ftp in and check the file permissions on a few files first.
Change 1 and check permissions again.

No need to reboot just yet.
As you may find the cause also.


After Thought.
Check the change log in the control panel just to make sure someone has not change the View Ads permissions with out your knowledge.

you are correct I just tried for the first time today to copy the default code into the udd control and I got this,
cache_builders/custom/portal_box_41 is not writeable. You will either need to change the permissions on this file or edit it by hand.

According to the install docs, all folders need to be chmodded 777, all files 666.
