Support » Plugin: AdFoxly - Ad Manager, AdSense Ads & Ads.txt » Rotate on Refresh & Preloading All Ads

    So I just tried literally all the ad managers on WordPress that were updated in the last year and I honestly love yours the most and it’s the one I want to stick with and rate 5 stars here on WordPress.

    However, I do have a big issue which I hope you can help with that is preventing me from sticking with your plugin and giving it a 5 star review right now, and that is this:

    Problem:

    • I have 186 ads set up in AdFoxly.
    • I have all ad rotations set to Refresh.
    • All my ads are Custom HTML/JS.
    • When loading any page, all 186 ads are loaded on every page
    • This causes a huge amount of unnecessary traffic since only 1 ad will be displayed in a position
    • It also causes my ad impressions (tracked externally, not in the plugin) to be multiplied by 186 times per page load

    Possible Solutions:
    If you can change randomization logic to be server-side for “Refresh” ad rotation to make only 1 ad output to the HTML front end. Again, this is only needed for ad positions set to Refresh instead of Timer. The current output makes sense for Timer based positions, but not for ads that will only change on page refreshing.

    I am a programmer and have published hundreds of WordPress themes and 20 something plugins over the years, so I can understand if this is not an easy code-refactoring for you to do. However, I appreciate your plugin as-is, clearly you’ve done a lot of hard work already but this one quirk is kind of a deal-killer for me.

    Other than that, I’m ready to write a 5 star review and use this plugin for the long haul. If I start making money using your plugin then I will upgrade to Pro as a way of saying thanks. Either way, thanks for reading this and hope you’re staying safe in these troublesome times. Thanks again!

    Wow, simply amazing how quickly you responded and provided an update that addressed my pain point. I’ve confirmed that it works as intended. Simply superb. I’ll write a review for the plugin now and upgrade your plugin as a way to say thanks the first time I get earnings from the ads.

    Great work, I really appreciate the help. Thanks again!
