Revive + Ssl + Android Browser Combo Fails To Show Ads

Recommended Posts

[RESOLVED* - This was an invalid cert chain in the cert at the revive site.]


The site is www.example.com. I have a redirect there to force https:// from http://. Revive 3.2.0 is serving it from https://ads.example.com. The problem is, only when using the Android native browser, no ads appear. Using the latest FF on Android shows them fine. Using any desktop browser shows them fine. All other non-SSL sites are served ok. So you'd have thought that perhaps the Android browser has a problem with just that SSL cert or whatever? That's why I did a cut n paste of the <script/> code as a test directly into the site, bypassing Revive, and it served it fine! As the title, it seems it's just the specific combination of Revive + SSL + the Android browser. It's been this way for the past few releases of the Android browser.

Hello Erik and thanks for sanitizing my post, I didn't realize I wasn't supposed to do that.

I have 3 new pieces of information though.

1. I updated to Revive 3.2.1 and it is still the same.

2. The version of Chrome for Android which is currently at fault is the latest, 43.0.2357.78. This is true on tablets too.

3. I am sure its not down to the cert or the Android browser because on the site, under the "Privacy Statement" link at the bottom of each page, I just added the direct AdSense invocation code and it always shows the ad properly.


If anyone wants to take a look at the site I'd be grateful but I guess you'll have to PM me.


I wish I could view the page source in Android - it's so frustrating having it always work on Desktop Chrome, especially since the site is not only aimed at mobiles but because of its nature (smartphone viruses) it tends to be more about Android anyway!!!
