Admanager, you devs really are doing a great job... you made my world after trying out many top notch plugins that misses to display adsense or delays the display most times. But this plugin improved my site load time while swiftly loading ads without waiting for it. The display selection setting is the best, you can easily avoid a page or post without hassle or learning curve.

I need support to activate and work, well they do that, but need upload entire files via TFP, make no sense, they needs improve to stardart updates.

I was a user of the free version of AdRotate for a number of years but my ads didn't always display properly and I was getting fed up of them reducing the functions of the free version and making them only available on their paid version. This was far too expensive for me as I run a banner exchange system for my clients and don't yet earn any money directly from serving ads. Your plugin does everything I need for now on the free version and is less complicated to set up. My ads also display a lot better. Thank you!

This plugin copies a lot of the functions in such a blatant way that for many of the features, taken from AdRotate, the text strings are even identical and are word for word the same 🙁 #lame
