AdRotate Banner Manager

Description

With AdRotate you can easily place advertising banners pretty much anywhere on your site while managing almost everything from the easy to use dashboard. No fussing with your themes code if you don’t want to.

Using AdRotate you can easily create your own adverts with basic HTML and/or Javascript code or use adverts from your favorite Ad Server such as Media.net, DFP, AdSense, Chitika, Doubleclick, JuiceAds and many more similar ad servers.

With AdRotate you manage your advertising campaigns and banners with ease, right in your dashboard.

In AdRotate it’s easy to check up on how many impressions adverts have. Monitor ad groups and see which are most effective. Make the most of advertising with the many features AdRotate has to offer.

AdRotate looks and feels similar to the WordPress dashboard you already know, you’re already familiar with AdRotate before you even start using the plugin. Familiarize yourself with the many useful features and you’ll be up and running very quickly.

Reviews

Used to be better. Author is too desperate for money

I’m using the PRO version (as in PAID) and I have ads for media.net and the author requesting for donations even on a paid plugin.

The plugin is OK (it always was), although it could be replaced with other options. UX is quite bad (I’m an UX specialist) and labels, information hierarchy or affordances are…. weird to say the least

Anyways, the plugin does one thing well, and I have no complains on that side. Everything else is a bit frustrating

When it works…

The plugin has a great concept, a little confusing for “non-tech” people to master easily. Meaning, I set it up and spend the next year answering questions about how add a new banner, how to add a group. Why are the dates stuck at 1970? Etc.

Not the fault of the programmer. One star for being a great concept.

Stats are great and give people the info they want/need. One star for that.

The problem with this plugin is that it has a recurring bug that they either can’t or won’t fix probably because it doesn’t happen to every one, but it’s not clear why it only happens to a select few. The same pat answers are doled out every time the bug question comes up on the support forum and if that doesn’t fix it, then you’re ignored and your post is closed.

The only solution that seems to work for this bug is if you totally remove the plugin & associated data tables, and reinstall the plugin. Not so good if you’re trying to hang on to the past year of stats.

Yes, it’s a good plugin. The pro version might not have the bug problems but not willing to spend even a little money to find out because of the way support is being handled.

Excellent

easy to use, even helps you put the ad codes together. love the group and block functions!

pietoso

non si capisce nulla, i banner non si vedono e non c’è verso di capire come funziona una vera schifezza.. un colpo secco a chi l’ha inventato neanche una guida su come configurarlo… sconsiglio vivamente…
