    ad-minister is no longer supported AFAIK....

    someone grabbed it and ran, so now http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-ad-manager/

    is teh way to go

    Just deactivate ad-minister, and install ad-manager. It picked up all my ad-minister settings no problem

    Rev. Voodoo, I've been using ad-minister for months with no problems, but suddenly over the past two weeks, the view and click counters have started randomly resetting themselves. I took a look at ad-manager, but I was wondering if you could tell me for sure whether or not those counters are working for you?

    Unfortunately our advertising on our site is all local content from our small town, so it pretty much lives or dies based on the number of views and clicks the ads get.

    cchestnut, I'm affraid ad-manager view and click counters works the same way as ad-minister.. We are working on fixing them, but i don't think that it will happen soon. If you earn money using ad-minister or wp-ad-manager, maybe you could commission someone to do this? Shouldn't be too hard, since there's not a lot of code and debugging should be easy.

    Thanks, Valentinas, I might look into that!

    It's weird though, because we've been using ad-minister since last May, and other than occasionally recording a few views or clicks before the ad posted, I had no real problems with the views or clicks before the beginning of February. Since then, as I said, the counters keep resetting to 0 every few days. I haven't made any changes to the code or added or removed any plug-ins or hacks, so I don't know what caused the sudden change. I've been using Google Analytics to give me a rough idea of how many views the ads have been getting, so we do at least have that for now.

    Well, WordPress changes, things changes.. And ad-minister hasn't been updated since 2008, so no wonder things start to fall apart...
