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.

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
