AdRotate Professional 5.8.21 – Compatible with WordPress 6

AdRotate Professional 5.8.21 is tested to work with the upcoming WordPress 6 and includes several bugfixes for uploading files. Making managing your passive income a little more easier.

Bug fixes

If you’ve noticed that files that were uploaded ended up with a double extension. This has been fixed. While looking into that I also noticed that the mime-type of zip files was not accurately checked. So I’ve fixed that as well. A pathing issue related to zip files has been corrected too.
These new features for checking mime-types are security related, to make extra sure that you’re not uploading a fake file pretending to be an image while it’s in actuality a different file – Which may contain malicious content.

The functions used for these checks require your server to have the fileinfo module enabled. This is a super common module that most servers have already. Ask your hosting provider to enable it if you notice errors complaining about non-existent functions.

Something like this: Error message: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mime_content_type() .
Showing this error to your hosting provider will speed things up with them understanding what needs to be done.

Blocks

AdRotate Pro recently got support for blocks. Are you using them? What do you think? Let me know in the comments below or on the forum!
It took a while but AdRotate Pro now supports them on a basic level. AdRotate Pro has 2 blocks, 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 look for ‘AdRotate’, ‘Banner’ or some other relevant keywords and you’ll find the blocks as depicted below.

Here you can drag or activate the block as normal and enter the advert or group ID in the text field. Click save, and you’re done.
Any formatting, layouts or coloring can be added in the AdCode as normal or via the Groups Wrapper fields. Just as you’re used to. Isn’t that neat? I think it is.

If you find any quirks with the blocks let me know in the comments below or through your contact form in your dashboard. Thanks!
Of-course AdRotate Pro with blocks is still compatible with ClassicPress as well.

Update regularly!

Staying up-to-date with plugins is important and is almost never a bad thing. Updates are important for your website security. But more often updates also add new or improve features as well.
Updates are available via your dashboard and require no special knowledge to install, this makes it extremely easy to keep your site secure and have the latest features.
