4.1 out of 5 stars
Good as new installations
By , for WP 4.3.1

Super work if just installed.
Problematic is the old version of the system update.
Excessive table wp_adrotate_tracker after a while because if cut down, is not a problem in low page views.

Very functional and well-designed addition.

Simple and effective for any developer
By ,

From a developer's point of view, this plugin is AMAZING. It has saved me so much time for my clients. I appreciate it! I'm not so sure it's as easy for non-developers to use, though.

Feature request - search bar
By , for WP 3.9.6

Actually using 3.9.8 professional. did not see that version on the drop down menu.

Digital Magazine Application with lots of landing pages. I now have 167 banner ads (about 1/2 are disabled) - 7 positions per landing page, 9 landing pages plus a few other premium positions.

The only AdRotate view under Manage Ads is the numerical sort Ad ID.

I really need a search bar to look for a specific advertiser banner to update, etc.

Constant problems
By ,

My livelihood revolves around this plugin and the advertisements that come with it. I can't tell you how many times the ads have simply disappeared. I've lost so many days of work and business as a result of this. This plugin has literally cost me thousands and thousands of dollars. On top of that if you have a problem the only way to fix it is leave a message on the support message board, cross your fingers, and hope to hear back from the plugin designer.

Resolves Ad Rotating Needs
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've used Ad Rotate for quite sometime now and I can say that it has resolved my requirements for rotating ads on my website. It's great that it can handle any code that I enter to display ads, and even better that I can group them according to sizes. Being able to use a short code to display an ad where I want it to is very convenient.

Since using this plugin I have found it, once you get your head around it, to be very easy to use.

Occasionally, some things go wrong but when asking the author, he is quick to respond.

I would like to be able to 'trial' the pro version so I can get a feel for it.

Overall, I like it so thought to post this as sometimes, we can be too quick to 'whine' rather than 'praise' :-)

Simple but effective
By , for WP 4.2.2

It's a simple Plugin but should cover more than 80% of Ad Placing needs.

Works Well (Except for inline ads)
By , for WP 4.2.2

Everything works pretty fine, except the automatic inline ads, and while that was some nice cake on the side, it's not essential.

Lacking some crucial display options and no hooks in the code
By , for WP 4.2.2

This regards the premium version. In all fairness I see a ton of great features for tracking, scheduling and allowing various users to manipulate their ads. Those are probably great but I am not touching those features much so cannot comment on them. The things I want most I cannot achieve with this plugin without hacks and workarounds. I would like to put a bunch of adds in one group and make them load in a widget in the order I choose. This doesn't appear to work. By default the ads load in random order. Its really a bit maddening. I would also like to have certain ads show up in the widget but only for certain categories. No luck there either. Category specific ads do not work in the included widgets. I also find there is a COMPLETE lack of action and filter hooks in the code. If you want this to do something a bit different than what it does, you have very few options

Good plugin
