Ad King Pro allows you to easily manage and track, via Google Analytics, your on-site advertising. Upload your banner/flash banner/adsense code/text, add the link its to go to then
your ready to go. Set it to start and end at a certain time if needed. Ad King Pro can be placed into any page or post by using the shortcode. It can also be placed directly into
theme files if need be. Create types and assign multiple banners to randomly show one on every page refresh, define a category to display in
a specific spot, even define a particular ad to display. Want to show multiple on a single page, no problem, change the ‘render’ attribute to
the amount you are after. Want those to then rotate on the spot? Got you covered. Turn the ‘rotate’ attribute to ‘true’ and your ads will fade between each other.

How To Use

Use Shortcodes

Shortcodes can be used in any page or post on your site. By default:
[adkingpro]
is defaulting to the advert type ‘Sidebar’ and randomly chosing from that. You can define your own advert type and display the adverts attached to that type by:
[adkingpro type=”your-advert-type-slug”]
Alternatively, you can display a single advert by entering its “Banner ID” which can be found in the table under the Adverts section:
[adkingpro banner=”{banner_id}”]
Have a select few adverts that you’d like to show? No problem, just specify the ids separated by commas:
[adkingpro banner=”{banner_id1}, {banner_id2}”]
Want to output a few adverts at once? Use the ‘render’ option in the shortcode:
[adkingpro banner=”{banner_id1}, {banner_id2}” render=’2′]
[adkingpro type=”your-advert-type-slug” render=’2′]
Only have a small space and what a few adverts to display? Turn on the auto rotating slideshow!:
[adkingpro type=”your-advert-type-slug” rotate=’true’]
There are also some settings you can play with to get it just right:
– Effect: “fade | slideLeft | none” Default – fade
– Pause Speed: “Time in ms” Default – 5000 (5s)
– Change Speed: “Time in ms” Default – 600 (0.6s)

Use one or all of these settings:
[adkingpro rotate=’true’ effect=”fade” speed=”5000″ changespeed=”600″]
To add this into a template, just use the “do_shortcode” function:
<?php if (function_exists(‘adkingpro_func’)) echo do_shortcode(“[adkingpro]”); ?>

FAQ

After activating this plugin, my site has broken! Why?

Nine times out of ten it will be due to your own scripts being added above the standard area where all the plugins are included. If you move your javascript files below the function, “wp_head()” in the “header.php” file of your theme, it should fix your problem.

I want to track clicks on a banner that scrolls to or opens a flyout div on my site. Is it possible?

Yes. Enter a ‘#’ in as the URL for the banner when setting it up. At output, the banner is given a number of classes to allow for styling, one being “banner{banner_id}”, where you would replace the “{banner_id}” for the number in the required adverts class. Use this in a jquery click event and prevent the default action of the click to make it do the action you require

I have created an Advert and added the shortcode onto my page but nothing shows up. Why?

Be sure that you have assigned your advert to an “Advert Type”. One called sidebar is automatically created for you when you install the plugin. It is this type that is pulled automatically in the default shortcode. Also in some cases you don’t need to wrap the type in quotes (eg [adkingpro type=sidebar]).
