"Ad after first answer" doesn't appear in questions without any answers. This is an issue to Adsense users because you can't have more than 3 Adsense ads per page.

I have one ad at top, one below question, and the one after first answer. Questions with answers display 3 ads. However, questions without answers can only display 2.

Activating "ad after all answers" with "ad after first answer" results in 4 ads.

Suggested solutions

1. "Ad after first answer" should also be displayed when the question has no answers yet.

2. Optional checkbox "display ad if question has no answers"

Q2A version: 1.8 beta 1
closed with the note: "Ad after 1st answer" is compatible with "ad after all answers". When a question has only one answer one of them is hidden.

I suppose Google have removed that restriction sometime back. As of now you can have any number of ads as long as the total ad coverage is not more than 50% of the page.
by
You're right. Is it still possible to apply the suggested change? If I activate both "ad after first answer" and "ad after all answers" the result is one banner on top of the other. That should happen if a question has only one answer.
by
well, I do not want two ads to be on top of each other -- even Google might not like it.
by
Me neither! So could you do it to avoid ads on top of each other?
by
oh. You mean to avoid showing the "ad before/after all answers" in case there are no answers?
by
No, it's the opposite. Right now, "ad after 1st answer" isn't displayed when a question has no answers. I want it to be displayed.

It would be similar to how "ad after all answers" works. This one also displays an ad when there are no answers.
by
If that is done it can lead to 2 ads one beneath the other if ads after first answer and ads after/before all answers are there. In next release I would ad an option to hide ad after all answers if no answer is there.
by
Could you add an option to show an ad even if the question has no answers for "ad after 1st answer"?
by
Sorry, I can't do. That makes no sense to me.
by
I agree with  arjunsuresh.
by
"Ad after 1st answer" is missing an option to display banner if question has no answers. If you change this and allow hiding "ad after all answers" if "no answers", then both "ad after 1st answer" and "ad after all answers" can be active at the same time.
by
After testing, I noticed "ad after all answers" is compatible with "ad after 1st answer". They don't stay on top of each other when a question has one answer. I apoligize for the inconvenience.
