    Is it possible to have an ad rotate/display based on a post's specific tags?

    Hi qwik3r, you can do this for widgets - just limit the ad per tag. For the in-content ads you can only use one set of tag restrictions per ad. You could rotate on multiple tags, but you'd have to write PHP in the ad blocks to do this.

    Thanks for the response, I"m still a little confused however. If i understand you correctly it seems as though i can restrict an ad showing based on a tag, but what about forcing it to show/rotate? For example only showing a photoshop ad on posts that mention the word photoshop, and rotating with others etc.

    Thanks!

    Hi qwik3r, you can do that for the Ad Injection widgets. You can limit the ad to appear on pages matching specific tags. And you can add multiple ads into the widget settings which will be rotated on the pages matching those tags. You'd need to create a new widget for each set of tags you want to target.

    Great thank you. One more question. As you have the ability for ads to be injected above, below or in the middle of content, is it possible to do this with the aforementioned widgets as well or would I have to build a custom widget area some where in my content (other than the sidebar and other designated areas) for this to work? I want to be able to really make use of the ads based on a specific tag.

    Hi qwik3r, you could add custom widget areas to your theme in the post areas, and then Ad Injection would be able to put adverts in those areas. Either way you could only do what you currently want with some PHP programming (or by finding another plugin which will do what you want - I don't think there are any though!).
