Chitika not showing ads over https

Recommended Posts

I've asked Chitika about this 3 times now without even an acknowledgement of my query.

Before I give up on them, does anyone here know how to get their ads to appear over https? We are in the process of adding letsencrypt certs to all our sites. Needless to say, Adsense is fine and when I visit the site over http the Chitika ones re-appear - it just looks at the moment like https is beyond them. They don't even appear in the Revive banner preview when I use that over https.

Yes I looked and saw none of either. Here's how they say you should invoke one:

<script type="text/javascript">
  ( function() {
    if (window.CHITIKA === undefined) { window.CHITIKA = { 'units' : [] }; };
    var unit = {"calltype":"async[2]","publisher":"example","width":550,"height":250,"sid":"Chitika Default"};
    var placement_id = window.CHITIKA.units.length;
    document.write('<div id="chitikaAdBlock-' + placement_id + '"></div>');
<script type="text/javascript" src="//cdn.chitika.net/getads.js" async></script>

Yes, looks like it shouldn't have problems with being delivered over a Revive Adserver installation running on https.

Perhaps try what happens if you pick "do not alter" in the click tracking option underneath the code box of the HTML banner. And perhaps test if enabling or disabling the iframe option makes any difference.

Since that post I even tried directly inserting their code into the site, and it still doesn't show, so i guess there's nothing I can do in Revive if that's the case.

I don't know why these are so highly recommended, they never answer emails and don't know about SSL! Actually, is there a place on these forums where quality adsense alternatives are discussed?
