I've put together a plugin which handles this in a different location, making it hookable - have sent a new copy of it to @Mopar1973Man to try it out. If anyone would like a copy then please PM me dir

You can already give Adsense login credentials for your forum to account for forums that can't be accessed by a guest. 4.0 will also allow you to restrict where ads show, which can be used to disa

You might be aware of this already, but it is a request that would be highly appreciated by myself and I think by the rest of the community as well. On my forums, I have specific forums which are no

My question is how do we resolve this properly meeting Adsense requirements? If we have semi-public area in other words behind a login area but still designed for the public? As far as what I got set up the login is not working there is never been a IP recorded other than my own for my Adsense login.

Hi,

I am struggling to get the Adsense crawler to login successfully to my IPS forum so that I can display ads on member only areas.

These are my settings:

I am using POST

auth = username of my bot account

password = pass of my bot account

Can anyone who is successfully using Adsense on their site confirm the correct settings?

Thanks for your help.

Can someone post a fresh copy of the parameters that Google Bots need to login to the forum?

Login URL = https://mopar1973man.com/login/
auth_key = 880ea6a14ea49e853634fbdc5015a024
ips_password = (Account password)
ips_username = (Google Bot Username)
rememberMe = 1

Are these correct?

 

Did you managed to find a solution?

The 2 highlighted items are most likely the problem - look at the HTML source of your login page. Do you see any fields called ips_password or ips_username?

Those are the names of the fields on the login page for my site which still runs 3.4.9

but the corresponding fields on the 4.x login page are auth and password

NOTICE: This will pass the information along to the login boxes but still at this point for me it will NOT actually login. I've got a support ticket going currently to attempt to figure out why.

As I mentioned previously, there seems to be a CSRF token in the login form.  This would also need to be sent as login parameter, but this kind of tokens have a variable value.  So, this is likely to make automated login impossible (but it would be nice if somebody from IPS could clarify this).

Hello,

Sorry, I did overlook that when reviewing the request. Unfortunately, yes all forms have CSRF ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-site_request_forgery ) protection. This requires a valid token to be sent with the form to validate the request. Unfortuantely this will mean that you cannot use the AdSense login functionality unless it can read the CSRF from the page and supply it (I'm not familiar enough with AdSense to know if it can do this). The CSRF token is unique to the current session, so it's not something you can provide to AdSense.

Kind Regards,

So we are basically without the ability to have Google Adsense Bots login to IPS software.
