Verify the changes: Once the rebuild process completes, access your Discourse forum and check if the ads from Google AdSense on the subdomain are now displaying correctly.
By adding the CSP directive in the
app.yml file and rebuilding Discourse, you can update the Content Security Policy to load external resources such as the Google AdSense script.
