Google adsense causing large horizontal scrolling on mobile

Create an ad unit with size 320 * 100 with google adsense and choose 320 * 100 large mobile banner with “adsense mobile topic list top top size” in the discourse management screen, then the mobile design will collapse like the image below.

Does anyone know how to solve this bug?

Can you post a link to the site you’re having trouble with?

Horizontal scroll, content falling outside of viewport, this problem I had faced on very first day while using official Ad plugin. This problem occurs on mobile devices.

To fix, just hide Ad unit label using display: none; css property.

Thanks for reporting @zyouchi :+1:

This is most likely against the terms of use for adsense and is not recommended.


By default AdSense doesn’t show any label. The plugin itself add a label called “Advertisment” above each ad unit. When I did hide, the problem was fixed. I don’t see it as violation. I am still using this plug-in. Overall, excellent experience.
