    Hi, Guys,

    Just wanted to let you know, that I made a fork of Ad-Minister, which is called WP-Ad-Manager and you can find it here:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-ad-manager/

    So far it's the same Ad-Minister, only WP 3.0x compliant. Plus better install.

    Later I'm planing to do a lot of improvements.

    Cheers!
    Valentine

    Nice, finally an update
    But I'm already using ad-minister, can I use this as an update or do I have to uninstall ad-minister and install ad-manager? And what to do with the adcodes in the templates?

    So far it's pretty much the same. If you have Ad-Minister already installed you should uninstall it (as far as I know it shouldn't delete any settings, but you still should create backup just in case it breaks) and then install WP-Ad-Manager. All adcodes, positions, ads and settings should remain. You will see, that inside of WP-Ad-Manager looks the same as Ad-Minister. It Even Says Ad-Minister in the menus and descriptions. Because it's the same code.

    What version of WordPress do you use by the way?

    You should consider upgrading to PHP5, everyone is dropping PHP4 support (including WordPress in version 3.2).

    Here is slightly modified version of plugin, which should work on PHP4:

    Let me know if it works for you.

    Maybe it is easier for you to tell me to upgrade to PHP5?

    I uninstalled, checked and made sure all files were gone (via ftp) and then re-installed the new mod that you kindly sent to me.

    Alas - a different line number error! pls. see below.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /.../wp-content/plugins/wp-ad-manager/ad-minister-settings.php on line 142

    Thank you.

    This here is error-free version:

    Gotta love that about the web - and the speed with which it happens - faster even than superman!

    I am on the West Coast USA. I'm sure you are elsewhere. thanks again.

    Now I can post a whole bunch of ads that no-one will see or click on. Perfect!!

    Hi Valentina, does the plugin work on a network install?
    I don't know if it's a problem with my installation or with the plugin on a network.

    At the create content area, the media upload window opens like a target="_top" link does. Thus, I can't insert the banner uploaded on the content.

    Also, Visual e HTML tabs don't switch the editor.

    lipsk, thanks for report. It should work on network. The "_top" behavior has nothing to do with network and appears to be regular bug. I will fix it asap (probably today) and let you know. I am also aware of the visual editor tabs bug, but i don't have deadline for that one, maybe next week or so. Please keep in mind, that this plugin hasn't been maintained for 2 years, so there's plenty of work with it.

    P.S. Valentinas, not Valentina ;)

    Update on wp-ad-manager: I've just tagged version 0.7.3, which has very important editor and media upload fixes.

    Now editor works properly, switches between wysiwyg and html view and back without any problems.
    Media upload now works properly.

    All feedback should go to http://wordpress.org/tags/wp-ad-manager and is very appreciated.
