This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



simpleAdPlacement aims to be just what its name says. It allows you to easily place your
advertisements in specified locations of pages.

  • Single Posts – This refers to the area after the post on the single post page. Usually before the tags and comments, etc.
  • Above the footer – This refers to the area right above your footer div.
  • Bottom of Page – This is the area at the very bottom of the page. After the footer.
  • Shortcodes – This allows you to use shortcodes to place ads wherever you want. Just insert [simpleAdPlacement]


Where do I find the settings for the plugin?

In the admin backend, look under Settings -> SimpleAdPlacement

Why is the ad for “Above Footer” not showing up above the footer?

Your footer div is probably not id’d as “footer” try to look in the source of your site to find the id of the footer and change it in the configuration tab.
