It’s been a bit overdue I guess… Or perhaps neglected. The widget for AdRotate Pro is basic and clunky to say the least. I’m not exactly sure what to do with them but making them compatible with Post Injection is probably a nice start, right? If you have ideas for widgets please send them in, as well. Keep in mind that any options must appeal to a broader audience than your site alone.
This will be a big change for widgets, and most of it will not be compatible with the current widget. So when these get added AdRotate Pro will sport 3 widgets total. Of-course there will be the current widgets. Which will continue to do it’s thing just fine. Eventually (think 2017-ish) this old widget will be removed from the plugin.
In the meantime you can start using this one, which is specifically crafted to show groups.
It does the same as the current widget in group mode, you can show a group and select a ID. Just a little bit more easy. If your selected group has Post Injection for Widgets enabled the Widget will detect that and switch to use it automatically.
I’m also working on a widget specifically for single adverts. But it’s not in any state to show off yet. The group widget is for now far more interesting 😉
Post Injection for Widgets
As for setting up Post Injection, you’ll get a new option in the already familiar settings for Post Injection. This is very easy to get going.
This feature will be available in the next update for AdRotate Pro.
