This update improves compatibility with modern WordPress 5.5 and up. Replacing a time function used throughout AdRotate with a native function from WordPress.
What’s the time?
Time is used everywhere, also in AdRotate. To schedule adverts, count clicks and impressions and in many other places. WordPress 5.5 changed a number of things for time notation and did away with timezone offset values AdRotate used. Depending on your settings that value does not always exist anymore, so now AdRotate uses the native WordPress function where applicable to get the current time.
Updates are, as always, important! WordPress 5.5 includes a new auto-update mechanic for plugins and themes. This makes it super easy for everyone to update and stay updated.
If you do not want to enable automatic updates, then of-course it’s business as usual and you have to do it yourself, just like before.
