Advice to do not install this plugin.

Killed my server
By , for WP 3.8.1

The wordpress.org repository version is no longer supported, so I tried the new version. It requires installing an unnecessary extra plugin which made changes to the appearance and functionality of wordpress admin.

The worse part, though, is that not only did it slowed down my website in general, but at some point it caused the server CPU to go 100%, which made the entire server unresponsive. When I managed to uninstall it everything went back to normal, but it took me a full day to figure out the problem.

new version slows down WP like crazy

The new version might be up to date, but in order to use it you need to install and register their shop plugin first. And here`s the catch.

This shop plugin alone slows down your wordpress blog like a big fat whale. (according to an internal scan this beast eats up more load time than all my 25 other installed plugins together!!)

Plus, I don`t like the idea of a double install.

Browser hijacking plugin
By , for WP 4.0

UPDATE 10/18/14:

It stopped redirecting me, and I never downloaded the "Xtreme" update based on everyone's warnings. There is another update to 3.1.6 it keeps prompting me to make, which, looking at the code, essentially DEACTIVATES the plugin so I'm forced to pay for a subscription. So, I'll never update it unless it breaks. For now, it's working great, and it's a lot better than paying $15 to $20 for the Bannerize subscription this guy's now wanting to charge for this.

My advice is if you have 3.1.5 installed, keep it and don't ever update it and you should be fine.

My rating:

4 stars for 3.1.5.
0 stars for 3.1.6.

Uses a very annoying browser hijack when accessing the WP Bannerize plugin panel within WP.

Instead of taking you to your control panel, they forcefully redirect you to their site to sell you stuff.

This is the worst way to advertise your products. At least give users the CHOICE! If they are clicking on the control panel, it means they want to see their control panel -- NOT YOUR STUPID WEBSITE!

I'm about to report this to WordPress as Adware/Malware. I'm pretty sure an unexpected redirect to your sales page is a violation of WP Terms of Service.

With this pluggin you can place ads where you want them

WP Bannerize had a problem. Moving banners stopped working after the WP upgrade to 3.6.1. But with the latest update Version 3.1.2 it is now back on the top list of my pluggins that enables me to place banners where I want them on my site. Great.

All the options were blank, no settings, buttons not working, one of the worst plugins I've ever installed
