WordPress Multiple Author Ad management

The plugin is ideal for blogs with multiple authors and acts as an incentive for making quality posts.

Installation

  1. Without changing anything (Not even the folder name), place the extracted multiauthor folder into the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation.
  2. Ensure that the plugin directory name is /wordpress-multiple-user-ad-management/. Changing it to something else may cause issues with the code verification process.
  3. Login to the administrative panel of the WordPress installation and activate the plugin. At this point in time, a MU Ad management option should appear on the admin navigation bar. This option will be visible to authors on your blog as well.
  4. In order to actually display the ads, we need to call the function: <?php mu_sidebar(get_the_author_id()); ?>. Wherever this function is placed, the ad will show. As you may be able to tell, on Ravall.com we have included this function at the bottom of the sidebar. Please note that, the function get_the_author_id() only works during/after the WordPress posts loop!
  5. Don't want to do 100% revenue sharing? Go to the admin settings and set a percentage value. This in turn will allow rotation between your ads and the author of the post's ads.

Configuration

  1. The first thing we need to configure is, the maximum size of custom (image) ads allowed. To do so, open the file, adminpanel.php and edit the variables, $maximagewidth & $maximageheight. The default values for these two variables are 250X250. Users will not be able to link to image files that are larger than the maximum restriction set by these two variables.
  2. All the actual outputting is done by multiauthorcommerce.php. If you dislike any message displayed by the script, simply navigate to this file and make the change.
  3. Additional configurations can be performed by logging into a WordPress administrative account and clicking on the "Admin Settings" submenu from the left-hand navigation.
