“Cannot load adsense-deluxe.php” problem with AdSense-Deluxe Plugin for WordPress

The AdSense-Deluxe plugin is just wonderful! I used Adsense Manager before and didn’t like the fact it uses old code for Google Adsense and I can do nothing about that. AdSense-Deluxe is way simpler and allows you to modify the actual code – very smart move. Unfortunately after installation it may report “Cannot load adsense-deluxe.php” when you try to add new ad block. Here is the fix to the problem.

Unfortunately 10-minute search didn’t return positive results about fixing the problem, so I decided to post solution here. Instead of copying adsense-deluxe_wp_plugin_v0.8 folder to wp-content you should copy its content. I.e. there should be “Optional_WordPress_2.0_Items” folder + adsense-deluxe.php + license.txt + ReadMe.txt files in your wp-content dir. Then everything will work just fine.
BTW, another interesting feature is that tags from AdSense Manager work with Adsense-Deluxe too, so you don’t have to change your blog posts.

  1. I’m also having problems with “cannot load adsense deluxe php” message. I see the “optional wordpress, license txt, readme, etc” but how do I move it or copy it to wp content directory. My web designer downloaded the plugin so I’m trying to do it on my own.

  2. Hi Mike!

    Just copy adsense-deluxe.php to wp-content. I.e. the path to the file should be

    I actually found that the recent version of Adsense-Deluxe readme.txt file suggests the same :)


  3. Hi-
    I tried doing this, but when I put the adsense-deluxe_wp file in the wp_content it won’t show in the admin panel for me to edit. It’ll only show when I have it loaded into the wp-content/plugins directory. I can activate it, add the code and name it, but then get that same error every time (“Cannot load adsense-deluxe.php”)
    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no change. Does it have to do with the AdSense code itself? I notice in the tutorial videos online, they show the old code, but I am using the new code:

  4. Elizabeth,

    I think you’re right and this could be the version issue. I’m also using the old one. Check the readme file included with the plugin – possibly it contains the list of changes or some new instructions.


  5. mate — i have put those files as sugegsted. do we still need to put the addsense deluxe folder into plugin directory also ? becaeu if we dont–the plugin is not availble to edit. i have done both — but stiull getthe same error.

  6. Sam,

    You don’t have to put the folder there, just keep all the files from adsense-deluxe in the wp-content/plugins folder like this:

    What version of adsense-deluxe are you using? 0.8 and earlier are still working with this file layout. Do you see this plugin in the list of plugins? Can you edit its options? What part exactly is not working?
