    Feature suggestion!

    CONFIGURABLE UPLOAD PATH NEEDED!

    We note a similar point was raised here and closed without answer:
    Upload to wp-content/banners/ in wp-admin?

    We have same issue, in that wp-content/banners/ is generally non-writable in our multisite environment, instead we second the original poster's suggestion that a configurable path be setup as an option, and/or a theme path can be used, because our users can upload to their theme directory.

    So basically the "many configs" means "our multisite setup".
    Multisite is not supported by AdRotate.

    wp-config/ is writeable by pretty much every setup these days. Aside from the exceptions that use Multisite or very stringent server settings.

    Ok thanks for your answer.

    When you say "Multisite is not supported by AdRotate" is that because of this one feature or are there other ways it does not work?

    AdRotate works fine for the primary site but does not recognise the rest.

    In some situations this is no problem, for example if you host blogs for people and you're the only one putting ads on there. You can hardcode the adverts in the themes used there. But if you wish that your sub sites can manage ads and such, thats not supported.
