IE8 Ad Loader

I load my AdSense ads at the top of my web page at http://www.RomanceStuck.com. I then use Javascript to move those ads to various areas on the web page. This seems to work for most browsers but I just realized it is not working in IE8. IE8 loads the ads at the top of the page but it never moves the ads. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Thanks!

All of a sudden, it looks like the ads are displaying where I want them but I didn't change anything Maybe they had been cached or something. Thanks for all your help!

It states that, "Note that this change will only affect your ability to access the AdSense interface. Please be assured that users using Internet Explorer 8 to view ads on your site will not be affected." The AdSense ads load on my page but my javascript isn't moving them to where I need them to go. Thanks!

An example of the code that I use to move the ad is:

      <!-- POSITION AD - START -->
        <div id="ad_nav_1_position">
        </div>
        <script>
          if (document.getElementById('ad_nav_1') != null)
          {
            document.getElementById('ad_nav_1_position').appendChild(document.getElementById('ad_nav_1'));
          }
        </script>
      <!-- POSITION AD - END -->

Can you help paint a picture of what you mean by move the ad(s)?  Do you mean when the browser is resized?

Are you talking about
<script>
        document.write('<div id="' + ad1_position + '" style="' + ad1_div_style + ' width=' + ad1_width + 'px; height=' + ad1_height + 'px;">');
        document.write('<scr' + 'ipt async ' + 'src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">' + '</scr' + 'ipt>');
        document.write('<ins class="adsbygoogle" ');
        document.write('style="display:inline-block;width:' + ad1_width + 'px;height:' + ad1_height + 'px" ');
        document.write('data-ad-client="' + ad_client + '" ');
        document.write('data-ad-slot="' + ad1_slot + '">');
        document.write('</ins>');
        document.write('<scr' + 'ipt>' + '(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});' + '</scr' + 'ipt>');
        document.write('</div>');
        document.write('<div id="' + ad2_position + '" style="' + ad2_div_style + ' width=' + ad2_width + 'px; height=' + ad2_height + 'px;">');
        document.write('<scr' + 'ipt async ' + 'src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">' + '</scr' + 'ipt>');
        document.write('<ins class="adsbygoogle" ');
        document.write('style="display:inline-block;width:' + ad2_width + 'px;height:' + ad2_height + 'px" ');
        document.write('data-ad-client="' + ad_client + '" ');
        document.write('data-ad-slot="' + ad2_slot + '">');
        document.write('</ins>');
        document.write('<scr' + 'ipt>' + '(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});' + '</scr' + 'ipt>');
        document.write('</div>');
        document.write('<div id="' + ad3_position + '" style="' + ad3_div_style + ' width=' + ad3_width + 'px; height=' + ad3_height + 'px;">');
        document.write('<scr' + 'ipt async ' + 'src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">' + '</scr' + 'ipt>');
        document.write('<ins class="adsbygoogle" ');
        document.write('style="display:inline-block;width:' + ad3_width + 'px;height:' + ad3_height + 'px" ');
        document.write('data-ad-client="' + ad_client + '" ');
        document.write('data-ad-slot="' + ad3_slot + '">');
        document.write('</ins>');
        document.write('<scr' + 'ipt>' + '(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});' + '</scr' + 'ipt>');
        document.write('</div>');
    </script>

I'll have a look and do some testing and see what I can find...

The code isn't working because the adwords aren't being loaded into your <div id="ad_nav_1_position"> element

empty element
You could try targeting the iframe to move the ads but looks that the id of the iframe is variable.

I suspect it will be the order in which the javascript loads.  There is so much code on this page thought it's making it virtually impossible to know what's going on.

Apparently, my code was right but the page wasn't updating.
