Creating an Ad

To create an ad go to the settings page under the menu "Settings > Corner Ad" or the link "settings" into the plugins area. The first screen will display the list of ads already created and a button "Create New Ad" for adding new ads.

  • To create a new ad, use the "Create New Ad" button.
  • To edit an existent ad, use the "Edit" button related to the ad.
  • To delete an ad, use the "Remove" button related to the ad.

The edition screen allows the configuration of the ad featuring the following options:

  • Ad name: Name used to identify the ad in the list.
  • Ad Link: Link to a page that will be opened when the user clicks on the ad. The link must be an absolute URL if you are promoting an external website.
  • Open Ad in: The options are "New page", to open the page in a new browser window, or "Self Page", to keep the navigation in the same browser window.
  • Ad image: Address (URL) of the image that will be used for the ad. If you click the "Browse" button the WordPress media library will be opened to select one of the images already available in your WordPress website and you can also add new images there. It is possible to associate multiple images to the same Ad, the images will be randomly selected to display in page.
  • Ad audio: Address (URL) of audio file to play in background.
  • Set as mirror: Automatically enable the image mirror on the ad.
  • Use corner with color: Applies a color to the ad cover.
  • Display Ad in corner: For selecting which top corner (Left or Right) will be used to display the ad.
  • Open corner in: Time in seconds to automatically open the ad.
  • Close corner in: Time in seconds to automatically closet the ad.

Inserting the Ad

To inset the ad into a post or page open the post/page for editing and use the "Corner Ad" icon that is located above the editor.

A floating panel will appear allowing the selection of the corner ad to be inserted into the post/page. Once selected a shortcode with the ad's ID will be inserted into the content., for example: [corner-ad id=3] (the 3 is the ID of the ad in this sample).

To insert an ad directly into the website theme to display it across all the pages or into specific sections, edit the template and insert the following code fragment:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[corner-ad id=3]'); ?>

To identify the ID that belongs to each ad, go to the page in the settings area where the ads are created. On that list each ad has its shortcode with its ID.
