More tweaks and little improvements to the plugin to further streamline the advertising experience. Stats checkboxes now work more intuitively and certain functions are excluded from running for WP CLI and wp-cron to optimize performance and prevent errors.
As you may have noticed, the clicks and impressions tracking checkboxes for adverts didn’t work for Matomo and Google Analytics – This has been fixed. You can now send either clicks, impressions or both to Matomo or Google Analytics.
Also included are a few fixes for warnings or errors that may pop up in certain situations. AdRotate Pro now better deals with it or prevents the issue from cropping up in the first place.
And to improve support for WP CLI (WordPress through the Command Line Interface) certain functions related to Geo Targeting and Sessions are excluded from running. This saves you lookups keeps things fast, but also prevents a weird quirk that often generate a PHP Warning.
Do you use the new AdRotate Pro Blocks? Did you notice they’re there? If not AdRotate Pro has support for blocks for WordPress its’ Gutenberg editor. This was added a few months ago. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below!
If you look in the block editor you’ll find two blocks available, one for groups and one for single adverts that you can use in posts and pages as well as widget replacements.
In the block editor simply search for ‘AdRotate’, ‘Banner’ or some other relevant keywords and you’ll find the blocks easily.
Of-course AdRotate Pro with blocks is still compatible with ClassicPress as well.
