Multiple Banner Ad Rotator? (7 posts)

    I've searched for hours to no avail... if anyone can help me find a plugin or wordpress-compatible script that will do the following:

    - Display multiple image banner ads with unique links that open in new windows.
    - Rotate the positions of these images upon reload (all the banner rotators I've found only rotate out one image - I want multiple images on the page at once).
    - Be fairly easy to add new banners (this is for a client who has a very limited html knowledge, and she'll need to be able to update this on her own).

    Any suggestions for a suitable solution would be greatly appreciated!

    I'd (actually it's what we use for most clients) use phpAdsnew, which is an open source banner ad management system - it runs independantly, however it's simple to insert the banners into your WP install/theme. we like it because it's so easy for clients to manage thier own banner advertising, etc. see http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=11386

    Try AdRotator plugin for WordPress. It is a simple WordPress plugin to rotate your banners randomly. You can use it in multiple locations on the same page with same or different set of banners.

    ps. I forgot to mention the phpAdsnew plugin which works along with phpAdsnew within WP, found here:

    phpAdsNew doesn't really need any plugin. But it is rather complex to setup, though more powerful. So I suggested AdRotator which is fine for most purposes.

    I have written a plugin to rotate banners in different positions in your blog, it's called WPAds and you can check it out here.

    Nick,

    Great plugin! It works well on my http://www.amgmarket.com/amg/ site but I can't get it working on another site.

    For some reason, it can't create the database tables and I get this error message in WP:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'mydatabase.wp_ads_banners' doesn't exist]
    SELECT * FROM wp_ads_banners WHERE 1 ORDER BY banner_id ASC

    I'm using a MYSQL server. I tried to check the permissions but don't know enough about programming to figure it out, yet. Any recommendations?
