AdRotate Free 4.12 – Available now

A small update improving category filtering in Post Injection. Some child categories would get the adverts from their parents, too. Which used to be intended. But things have changed a bit in user preference.

To comply better with GDPR the impression trackers are no longer stored in cookies, but have been moved to Session data.
These cookies were to track impressions in dynamic groups. A few users mentioned there were too many cookies. And then GDPR came around, I realised it’s faster and easier to store them in Session data than to build in a button to allow extra cookies nobody wants anyway.

Changes

  • [fix] Post Injection showing adverts in the wrong categories
  • [change] Moved tracker for dynamic groups into Session Storage

Strange discoveries

I have no idea what this is, it looks like some kind of drainage thing. Except, it’s at the top of a mountain range. Not sure what that’s all about.

AdRotate Free 4.11.2 – Available now!

A quick update rolling back Post Injection to what it was in version 4.10. Which worked better than the current iteration. Fixing it for real has proven more difficult than anticipated and will take some time.

Turns out there was something wrong with Shortcodes and caching, this has been fixed, too.

Changes

  • [rollback] Post Injection to previous version
  • [fix] Shortcodes for W3 Total Cache not reliable for some users

A scenic display

Way up in the mountains a previous government built an actual dam of rocks and sand. To catch water and control the flow of water down the mountain so it could be used for irrigation. Nice. But now it’s all broken and derelict. Ready for scenic pictures to be taken.

AdRotate Pro 4.13.2 – Fixes and things…

Post Injection is a difficult feature for some reason. Fixing it will take some time. So in the meantime we’re rolling Post Injection back to what it was in version 4.12. It’s not perfect, but at-least it worked a little bit.

Some widgets had issues with a stray network variable, which has been resolved and shortcodes did something dumb with W3 Total Cache – Not sure how that happened, but it did. Now it’s fixed.

Some users of older licenses (starting with 101) had trouble activating or de-activating their license some times. This has been resolved too.

AdRotate Geo and Updates

As announced AdRotate Geo no longer works as of API v4. Which all current versions look at. Version v3 is still online but as use diminishes will be shut down in a few weeks or months.

Updates are provided to users with licenses starting with 102 or higher. That includes everyone who bought their license AFTER December 2014. All older licenses will no longer receive updates. Your license will remain active and you will still have access to your download. Just not the latest version. If you want future updates, get a renewal license. More on that here – Phasing out legacy licenses.

Changes

  • [rollback] Post Injection to previous version
  • [fix] Advert widget looking for a network variable
  • [fix] Group widget looking for a network variable
  • [fix] Shortcodes for W3 Total Cache not reliable for some users
  • [fix] Legacy licenses not able to activate or de-activate

What’s that smell

Recently while exploring the area of the city a little bit we found some new backroads. Nice… Or so we thought. At the end of one, which just connected to a new road we found this.
