Can I hide the Clicktracking URL? (6 posts)

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong here, but when I add clicktracking to my ad, which I very much need (is there a better solution?), when I hover over the ad I see the URL as follows: http://mysite.com/wp-content/plugins/adrotate/adrotate-out.php?track=NSwdLDA=

    It's kinda ugly, and seems unnecessary. I'd like to see the actual URL of the advertiser in the status bar of my browser, not this ugly URL going to my backend.

    Is there a way to change this?

    Does anyone know the answer to this? Definitely need to get rid of that ugly link that Adrotate creates.

    I don't believe you can get rid of it as that's how the click-tracking works. Same as if you have an Amazon.com ad which will have a very long URL.

    What you can do when creating the links is shown below. That way when the person mouses over the ad it will display the page title, the image title will show-up before the image loads if the person is on a slow connection, it should also show if they have some kind of image ad blocker.

    <a href="%link%" title="PAGE-TITLE"><img src="%image%" alt="IMAGE-TITLE" /></a>

    Ad Code: < a href="http://www.abc.com.my"><img src="%image%" /></ a>
    Advertiser: Not specified
    Clicktracking: Uncheck Enable? and don't fill anything in url: field

    This works for me :) Can remove the ugly plugin link
