    Hello, and thank you for the brilliant plugin.
    Testing the fantastic new feature in the last update - dynamic groups - is causing me some issues.
    I have a right side-bar with widgets. Three of the widgets are adrotate, showing the same ad group (in the group there are lots of ads).
    When I set the group to be dynamic, this is what happens:
    - the first widget start to rotate, but shows only static ads (not flash). When it probably comes to a flash nothing is displayed, and it get stuck there
    - the other two widgets are stuck on the same static ad, and don't rotate at all

    Thank you

    It may be that the flash files are not loaded properly because of the rotation through Javascript.

    Thank you Arnan.

    How do you suggest to solve this?

    Anyway this wouldn't explain why the second and third widget don't rotate at all

    Another thing I noted is that the rotation begins always from the first ad and continues to all other ads one by one in the same order (probably by ads IDs).
    So the same ads are displayed at the firsts seconds and the same ads are displayed at the end (if ever....)
    I think that also the first ad displayed and the sequential rotation should be totally randomized!

    Thank you!

    For now the order is the same, depending on how they're entered into the database.
    This may change in the future if there is demand for such a thing.

    Ok,

    what about the issue with the rotation of the widgets?

    That may be attributed to a caching plugin or simply because your group has only 1 advert in it.

    Hi,

    I don't have any caching plugin, and the group has more than 40 ads in it

    Thank you
