AdRotate
What's keeping me from buying Pro (2 posts)

    I'm really interested in buying the Pro version, especially while the Network license is on sale. But there are a few things holding me back.

    1. Ad creation doesn't allow for simply uploading an image and attaching a URL. I have to insert and then customize the HTML with things, like nofollow, that would be much better with a global setting.
    2. No multisite ads—I would love to create either an ad or ad block once that can be used across all sites on my network.
    3. Forced expiration is annoying—I don't always want my ads to expire, so I hate having to invent an expiration data for every ad. Picking just a date alone is annoying enough, but AdRotate also needs a time?
    4. Inserting ads isn't simple—sure you provide shortcodes in each ad or ad group I create, but when I'm writing a page, post, or adding a widget, I have to lookup the ID number instead of selecting the ad from a list.

    I'm not starting this discussion, just pointing out a few things;

    1. All you'd have to do is click an example, swap out the URL with your own and upload an image. That's a fully working advert right there. One more click and you have your nofollow tag in there too.

    2. Nothing is stopping you from loading ads cross website. It's just not yet built in in AdRotate.
    For example with https://codex.wordpress.org/WPMU_Functions/switch_to_blog

    3. Setting an enddate for 2020 doesn't take effort at all, and time is optional; As-in if you just care for the ending day, the time is irrelevant.

    4. That depends on your definition of simple. Shortcodes are rather simple especially since ready made ones are provided with every group or ad.
    Your suggested list is not easier if you have 200 ads or a lot of groups.
