Does not work as advertised
By , for WP 4.0.1

This faulty plugin does not work as advertised, the setup is easy but the actual performance is unreliable and severely limited. I tried the paid version, too, but it has all of the same flaws as the free plugin.

Error, no group ID set! Check your syntax!
By , for WP 4.0.1

And no solution found. You waste my time.

Useful if wouldn't break other pulgins
By , for WP 4.0.1

Besides throwing some jquery errors (maybe it's my theme), loading its (not so necessary) jquery is breaking other plugins functionality (such as WP-Members). Too bad. Moving to another solution.

Syntax error
By , for WP 4.0.1

The same problem with header and sidebar. Writing "syntax error" as i'm trying to put new ID for banner. Old banners are running correctly.

Hope you fix it as soon as possible.


AdRotate 3.11.5 Widget sidebars not working
By , for WP 4.0.1

Latest update 3.10.15 Widget sidebars are still not working. No ads are displaying just a red text error.

Not Very Good
By , for WP 4.0.1

Every time a new update something does not work. I have been testing it on my websites. Now after the latest update, with adverts not showing in posts. Which has happened before. As a business I cannot afford the adverts not to show every time an update happens. More than 2 days not and this issue is not fixed yet.

Now I will remove this plugin from my sites and I personally I would not recommend this plugin if you run a business, as it is not reliable.

Painful and unsuccessful setup
By , for WP 4.0.1

Installation was non-eventful. Good thing!
Figuring out what, when, how to do things? Painful!

I figure I have more intelligence than a bag of rocks... but this developer give NO video, or guides as how to setup. I just can't figure this out.

very good
By , for WP 4.0.1

It does the job. Works very well. Thank you.

Older version much better
By , for WP 4.0

Disappointed. Used the older versions and had no problems, last couple of updates have been challenging. After every update (lately) "There was an error locating the database tables for AdRotate." it can be fixed but what a waste of time. Never mind the instruction to upgrade to PHP 5.5.

Better than many other (free) choices
By , for WP 4.0

I did extensive research and tried several free Ad plugins before AdRotate, and I ended up choosing AdRotate as it's easier to use and yet has the flexibility I need, and so far I am pleased. Biggest issue for me was the red error message of not connecting to database on install. But the developer's suggesting of uninstall and reinstall fixed it, and now it's working fine. Since I'm just launching advertising on the site, and have relatively lower traffic than other publishing sites, this tool is fine for my needs. However, as traffic and advertisers increase I probably will have to determine if I go with the Pro version, or try another (more expensive) paid solution. The help information was greatly superior to several other free Ad solutions, in which poor English and barely-there help info forced me to have to guess how to set up my ads. For relative newbies to advertising like me, AdRotate works very well and is easy to set up and run.
