Support » Plugin: AdRotate Banner Manager » Fantastic Plug-In!

  • I am not proficient at coding and if it isn’t as simple as inserting shortcodes, you can pretty much count me out. I began using this plug-in to “monetize” a blog, and found it extremely easy to understand how it was structured.

    You create Ads. You create Groups. Ads can be added to a Group. You can insert individual Ads or Groups into , a Post or Page, and select where to place them: (Before content, after content or both) using a simple user interface. Or you can elect to insert short codes in the location you want an Ad (or Group) to be placed. You can also insert php right into your theme. If I can do this anyone can, and once you get the hang of what’s going on, it’s surprising how powerful this plug-in is. Even the data collection/statistics generated in the free version is commendable. Limited perhaps, but enough to get the vast majority of what you need to illustrate when talking with advertisers.

    I have since moved to the “Pro” version, but I could probably have gotten by with this plug-in right out of the box.

    My experience with Arnan (the developer) has been nothing but positive. Indeed, the level of customer service he provided to me as a non-paying user of his product is one of the reasons I chose to upgrade and “commit” to AdRotate.

    I did run into a problem when trying to utilize AdRotate on a bbPress powered Forum. bbPress classifies Topics and even the Forums themselves (I believe anyway) as a “post type”. So they do not show up in the AdRotate interface. To get them to show required some php work and a template specifically for this purpose, which is beyond my capabilities. So again I turned to Arnan.

    Arnan has since assisted me in implementing AdRotate into the bbPress forums, and it has proven to be just as seamless an addition to the functionality of this plug-in.

    So for me, this is a no-brainer, and I’d jump right back into this pool if I was starting all over again. I just haven’t experienced any of the negative comments/aspects that a few have expressed in the lower scoring reviews. And that applies to the plug-in as well as the developer.

    If you are looking to place image advertising on your site, I highly recommend this plug-in.
