Ads Easy

Description

If you need to place some Advertisements on your blog, but you don’t need other stats, than those from your adprovider and you don’t want to have ads in your posts, this is the solution. You can define the widget style yourself or you can leave it to your theme. Show your ads on every type of page or just on the frontpage. Keep your registered users adfree when they are logged in if you want. If you use Google AdSense, you can wrap the AdSense tags automatically around your loop, header, footer and / or sidebars. In the editor, you have a button appearing, that will wrap content in the Google ignore tags. Simply select some text and press the button, the shortcode will do the rest for you.

Ads Easy was tested up to WP 4.5. It should work with versions down to 2.7 but was never tested on those.

FAQ

I styled the widget container myself and it looks bad. What do I do?

The styling of the widget requires some knowledge of css. If you are not familiar with that, try adding

padding: 10px;
margin-bottom: 10px;

to the style section.

My widget should have rounded corners, how do I do that?

Add something like

-webkit-border-top-left-radius: 5px;
-webkit-border-top-right-radius: 5px;
-moz-border-radius-topleft: 5px;
-moz-border-radius-topright: 5px;
border-top-left-radius: 5px;
border-top-right-radius: 5px;

to the widget style. This is not supported by all browsers yet, but should work in almost all of them.

My widget should have a shadow, how do I do that?

Add something like

-moz-box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;
-webkit-box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;
box-shadow: 10px 10px 5px #888888;

to the widget style to get a nice shadow down right of the container. This is not supported by all browsers yet, but should work in almost all of them.
