Support » Plugin: Post Pay Counter » Pro: additional feature

  • I’m very interested in purchasing the premium version of this plugin as I run a multi-author site. However, I have one problem which is that my site allows authors to selectively turn off ads from running on certain posts (if they believe its contents are likely to go against adsense policy). They do so by checking a checkbox (coded by someone else). In that case, I won’t be able to pay authors for the pageviews on that particular post. Is there any way for this plugin to detect which posts that have this checkbox ticked and return a final pageview value separately (that excludes views on posts without ads)?

    The PRO version allows to tick a box to completely exclude a post from stats. This will prevent any payment to be computed though, not only visits. We don’t have any feature like the one you describe, although it shouldn’t be too hard to implement with some custom code ๐Ÿ™‚

    I want author to be able to view page count for that post too, but when it comes to computing ad revenue, page count from selected post should not be counted in. Is that possible?

    Now I am a bit confused. Page count and revenue are separate already.

    “when it comes to computing ad revenue, page count from selected post should not be counted”
    Should ad revenue be post payment here?

    In case, I think it would require some more fiddling, but it should be possible (always with custom code, that is).

    Sorry for the confusion, let me try to explain. If author A receives 10,000 pageviews for every post. 10 posts = 100,000 page views. However, if one post has been excluded from running ads, author A should still be able to see 10,000 pageviews for every single post(total of 100,000 pageviews). However, ad revenue/payment should only be calculated for 90,000 pageviews. So at a cost of $1/1000 pageviews, author A should see and receive $90.

    I understand, thanks. As I said, this is not something that is natively included. However, it can be added as a small additional module for a (not so big) fee. I can either give you some guidelines on where to look in case you are a developer and can to it yourself, or craft a small quote for the custom work. In the first case, I will detail it here. In the second case, get in touch at webmaster [ at] thecrowned dot org ๐Ÿ™‚
