AdRotate Pro 3.16 available now!

logo-512x512It’s been a busy few weeks and a number of improvements have been made. A bunch of bugs have been fixed and a few new features. Statistics (Using the internal tracker) has a few new tricks up it’s sleeve and can now also show this and last months totals for adverts.


A new and exciting feature called ‘Adblock Disguise’ has been added to AdRotate Pro. Using Adblock Disguise you can mask the CSS and Javascript Output from AdRotate so that adblockers can not easily cut out your adverts.

Adblockers work by looking for common phrases, a few of which include the CSS and Javascript from AdRotate. You can now dynamically change these from AdRotate Settings to trick the adblockers. Obviously if your advert uses other code or terms that are easily spotted this feature will have little effect. So be mindful of what you do.

Mobile support

The Mobile feature has had a bit of an overhaul and now uses the PHP Library ‘Mobile Detect’ to determine what’s what. This allows for a bit more control.
You’ll see that adverts that are set to be mobile only now can differentiate between Phones and Tablets. Check your advert settings to see how this works.

The Responsive feature is proving exceedingly difficult to set up and maintain. This feature will no longer see much updates and may eventually be removed from AdRotate (Pro) again. For the time being, the Mobile Feature is the way forward.

At the end of the month I’ll be travelling to the Philippines. Probably with dodgy internet until I arrive at my destination on Mindoro in early October.

Puerto Galera from the air

This means that between September 28th and October 5th I may not respond to email, forum posts, chat or tweets. If at all possible I will try to answer emails and possibly forum posts every few days. But I’m not sure if I’ll be able to.
