- Are there any Frequently Asked Questions?
I have been using the plugin for years, just had a glitch when switching to a new hosting provider and after a few support emails back and forth, the issue was solved.
Eric, Thanks for the great response time and help. My Banner Ads are back in business!
I posted a question 4 weeks ago on the forum and received no response. The plugin isn’t working for us.
Works as expected. Make sure AdBlock is turned off for developing. Took me a while to figure that this might be the problem 😉
Huge thanks for this simple and easy to use plugin. Works like charm. Keep it up!
