Got AdRotate Pro? You no longer need the free version!

logo-512x512People ask me more and more if they can remove the free version of AdRotate after buying AdRotate Pro.

The short answer; Yes you can.

And in more detail, yes but… If you simply disable the free version and leave it be, that’s fine. But many like to remove the plugin. Which is better.

Every purchase of an AdRotate Pro license comes with a readme file which has a step-by-step manual on how to upgrade to AdRotate Pro and what to do with the free version.
There is also a guide in the AdRotate Manuals section which you can get to via this direct link:

Paradise found?

Just when you think you find a nice quiet beach for a swim and you’re constantly stung by shrimps… ๐Ÿ™

Flying shark

There was a shark on the loose in Molo, Iloilo City. It took me quite a white to get a ‘decent’ picture of the balloon frolicking about. When I finally caught it, it was already quite high up.

AdRotate Pro 3.21 – Trash Bin and bugfixes!

logo-512x512It’s been a while. And it’s been a busy time. I’ve been house hunting in Iloilo City, Philippines. Then when that failed, tried again in Dumaguete City… And now I’ve moved in. Ready to make updates again. I even have proper ADSL, yay!

Bin, binned and deleted

This version is mainly a maintenance release, but one interesting new feature made it’s way in. A Bin. You can now delete adverts (as usual), but instead of being removed they’re put in the bin. Should you change your mind, you have 3 days to restore it. If not, AdRotate automatically deletes the advert and it’s data after 3 days.

This works as easy as selecting the adverts and selecting ‘remove’ from bulk actions. You’ll notice that this replaces the ‘Delete’ option. Once in the bin you can let them sit there, or delete them immediately with the ‘Delete’ option. Simple as anything ๐Ÿ™‚

You’ll see the ‘Bin’ as a new option in Manage Adverts.

Hide notifications

And by popular demand, you can now hide advert expiry notifications in your dashboard. Apparently people do not want to be reminded of their adverts expiring. So, in AdRotate Settings > Notifications you now have some options to configure that. Error states and other issues in AdRotate Pro can not be turned off, to get rid of those you’re gonna have to fix the listed issues.

Hipster iPod speakers

You’ll find these clusters of Bamboo everywhere in the Philippines. Unspoilt and untouched. That’ll make for a ton of iPod speakers though ๐Ÿ™‚
