Support » Plugin: AdRotate Banner Manager » Lack of Control Locations

  • Good day,

    I find it as a good plugin, but for me it is not much useful as there are many pages that are showing adverts as the plugin in relies on selecting pages, but for the listing pages, blog or similar there is no way to advert on them even with a shortcode.

    So, it is important that there will be a selection to show on all pages for example like the above mentioned plus categories, archives & etc.

    Also, it would be a good idea to have it show in header & footer.

    It also lacks simplicity when needed, for example when I want to use AdSense, I do not want to set many groups and adverts, it should be just a simple one that hosts the code and I can tell to use on all pages, header & footer for example without going into much details.

    I hope to find such things in a near future update, currently I have to disable it as it is not much useful to me.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    You can use Widgets, Shortcodes, Post Injection and PHP Snippets in many places on the site.

    Pages and Posts both can have Shortcodes and get adverts through Post Injection if you don’t want to use code.

    For any widget area you can use AdRotate widgets, or a text widget with a Shortcode.

    For Custom Post types you can use Shortcodes if the plugin adding the post type supports it. Otherwise you can use PHP Snippets or widgets.

    Seems like plenty of options if you want to put in the work to manage your adverts.

    New ways of adding adverts are always up for consideration, but WordPress simply lacks the hooks and filters to reliably do so without relying on advanced themes. Everyone uses a different theme.
