This is an important update which aims to add more diversity to your adverts. I’ve added a basic filter to prevent adverts from showing more than once on the same page. Also the advert error states have been improved a bit with more clear notifications.
Double adverts or not
In previous versions of AdRotate Professional if you placed the groups with the same adverts on a page (or the same group multiple times), chances were that it would output the same advert 2 or 3 times. AdRotate Professional now includes an option to prevent that.
This setting is disabled by default. But you can turn it on in Settings > General.
AdRotate Professional now, finally, includes a proper POT file for translations. All included po/mo files have been updated to reflect the current strings in the plugin.
If you’ve made a translation, you can email it to me to have it included in the next version of AdRotate!
Updating regularly is a good thing
Many times plugin updates are important for your websites security and to keep it current and fast. AdRotate Professional is no exception. Allthough AdRotate has a pretty good track record in providing a safe experience. You still need to update regularly.
Updates are also important to get the latest features. AdRotate Professional didn’t get all that many new features in the last 2 years or so. But features you already have get improved all the time. From little tweaks to complete overhauls. It is therefor a good idea to update the plugin at-least a few times per year.
