  • The plug in is quite full of features in its free version, enough to make it worthwhile for most with typical banner management needs. I contacted the developer a couple of times with questions and he was super responsive. Seems like he is also updating and adding features regularly.

    Hi benromero,

    thank you for your great feedback. It reads like a 5+ star review, but you gave 4 so I was wondering what you are missing.

    Thanks
    Thomas

    Thomas,

    Fair question/comment – I honestly did have the same thought when I was writing it.

    I would say that at times I felt that the plug in could be a bit more easy to use somehow. The concepts of how the software works can be a bit confusing at first (ads/groups/placements). To be fair, I also have not spent that much time with the plug in, and I am sure things get easier the more it is used (this was the case for me, but I do remember wishing things were a bit more intuitive). Also, some level of complexity is quite expected, considering the features that are available. All in all, the learning curve and the features are well balanced I think, but to me 5 stars is essentially super easy and intuitive software, so I thought 4 stars was more appropriate.

    Lastly, a couple of times I was not able to do certain things (which is why I wrote to you with questions). It is very tricky to determine what level of features deserve which rating, and the 4 star rating here is more of a gut feel, and subjective.

    It has been a while since I installed and setup your very nice plugin, and so this is the best comments I can come up with thinking back a few months – I hope it is helpful. I certainly recommend anyone to try/use the plugin with confidence (I can only say that of very few plug ins), and you are very close to 5 stars for sure. If I get more activity on my webpage regarding ads (currently I do not, which is why I have not played with it in a while), I will be in a better position to adjust my rating (hopefully up).

    Thanks for offering this great plugin for free! (and the pro options look great, and I hope to support you with a purchase once/if activity on my webpage picks up).

    Thank you for your helpful comment. I completely agree that the number of features already in the free version is hard to put into an intuitive interface. However, this is still my goal and I definitely accept 4 stars in that case, because there is room for improvements.
    Lucky for me, and hopefully you, I still have some ideas 🙂

    Thanks for taking the time!
    Thomas
