    I've got the OIO Publisher wordpress plugin displaying ads nicely on a site using widgets, but if I copy the <script from the AdZone the ads don't show up on other sites.

    when inspecting the browser code it shows
    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (OK)

    not sure where/how/what is blocking accessing the script -- do the wordpress installations not allow serving ads to other sites?

    thanks

    The javascript should work on any site; there's nothing I know that would block it. Do you have an example I could check out?

    Hi Simon,

    script is getting blocked from loading from wordpress plugin

    when the page loads and calls the script js.php from the plugin it gets met with a 403 forbidden - you can see the headers and response here:

    https://example.com/wp-content/plugins/oiopub-direct/js.php#type=banner&align=center&zone=1

    https://gtmetrix.com/reports/attorneyspress.com/B1HWHmmM

    I changed permissions to 0755, 0766 and even 0777 and it still remained blocked

    the site was behind a 'coming soon' page but I disabled that and let time pass and still can't access

    htaccess is pretty bland without anything that should be blocking

    I deactivated security plugins (securi, wordfence, jetpack)

    I'm wondering about loading js.php separately via a script - not sure what that script would be however.

    any ideas?

    It's definitely a file permissions issue, since I can access the README.txt file in the oiopb-direct folder on your site, but not any php file. That always means the folder permissions (e.g. wp-content or plugins directories) aren't set to allow access or there is an htaccess file blocking it.

    Check out this tutorial for full details:

    Hi Thanks

    That was a helpful article. I methodically looked through everything and sure enough there was an extra htaccess file in wp-content folder.

    mystery solved
