Make it easy on yourself and use AdRotate to place your adverts on your site... Make making money easy!
wonderful plugin.. and is fast too.
I am not proficient at coding and if it isn't as simple as inserting shortcodes, you can pretty much count me out. I began using this plug-in to "monetize" a blog, and found it extremely easy to understand how it was structured.
You create Ads. You create Groups. Ads can be added to a Group. You can insert individual Ads or Groups into , a Post or Page, and select where to place them: (Before content, after content or both) using a simple user interface. Or you can elect to insert short codes in the location you want an Ad (or Group) to be placed. You can also insert php right into your theme. If I can do this anyone can, and once you get the hang of what's going on, it's surprising how powerful this plug-in is. Even the data collection/statistics generated in the free version is commendable. Limited perhaps, but enough to get the vast majority of what you need to illustrate when talking with advertisers.
I have since moved to the "Pro" version, but I could probably have gotten by with this plug-in right out of the box.
My experience with Arnan (the developer) has been nothing but positive. Indeed, the level of customer service he provided to me as a non-paying user of his product is one of the reasons I chose to upgrade and "commit" to AdRotate.
I did run into a problem when trying to utilize AdRotate on a bbPress powered Forum. bbPress classifies Topics and even the Forums themselves (I believe anyway) as a "post type". So they do not show up in the AdRotate interface. To get them to show required some php work and a template specifically for this purpose, which is beyond my capabilities. So again I turned to Arnan.
Arnan has since assisted me in implementing AdRotate into the bbPress forums, and it has proven to be just as seamless an addition to the functionality of this plug-in.
So for me, this is a no-brainer, and I'd jump right back into this pool if I was starting all over again. I just haven't experienced any of the negative comments/aspects that a few have expressed in the lower scoring reviews. And that applies to the plug-in as well as the developer.
If you are looking to place image advertising on your site, I highly recommend this plug-in.
It's just not what I was looking for.
I use this on at least a dozen sites, and even if the pro version didn't have extra features, I'd still be willing to pay for it considering how much time and effort it saves me.
I'm a newbie to WP and this plugin was easy to figure out.
Took me a while to work out the way to use it.
Finally realized not to use group settings in Banner > Add New, but instead use Groups manager, then use the code provided in that page instead.
PS: Sorry for other review, Thanks for the help and persistence.
Thanks for great plugin that works well on my own site: [Link removed]
Thanks a lot.
After testing several ad management plug-ins, we came across this one and breathed a sigh of relief! None of the others provided the customization and tools we needed. We thought we were going to have to hire someone to code a plug-in from scratch.
There's a bit of a learning curve but once you've figured out how to use this, it's very easy and fast. We'll be upgrading to the pro version, this week.
The support is very good, too! We had a question about the plug-in and had an email answer within just a few hours. That's not typical when doing business between someone in the US and the Netherlands.
All-in-all, an outstanding piece of work. We highly recommend this plug-in and those who developed it.
Very good plugin for adverts. Now I am using this for every site.
First time is looks too big and so much options and slightly confusing.. But it is better option if you want to add custom ads. Also good option for publisher ads.
I recommend author add sorting to table and if possible they should be categoried. When there are so much ads difficult to manage
Not sure what some of these folks are complaining about. I thought what the plug-in did for free was extremely valuable but needed the additional features. So I did not see features getting stripped during an upgrade since my version was paid. Other than some sorting/reporting weaknesses that are likely easily remedied so sales teams can more easily report and track, I think this is a completely viable solution to ad management. If author continues to grow it, he may have an enterprise level solution on his hands.
Please keep up the great work!
