Home Forums AdRotate for WordPress General Support Article with multiple categories show multiple ad groups

  • #105452

    Hi there,
    I’ve purchased Pro license for my site. However, I can’t find settings where I can configure Adrotate to show only groups from article’s primary category.
    I have several ad groups with post injection and those groups are connected to the WP categories.

    the problem appears when I have one article with two categories which both have ad groups so I end up with multiple ads in the article, sometimes even duplicate ads. ž

    How to avoid this?

    AdRotate tries to use the primary category. But it doesn’t always work.
    It’s a bit of a weak spot in the Post Injection feature…

    The WordPress filter is a bit ambiguous for that 🙁

    If I find a fix for that it’ll be a priority update.


    Oh, I thought that is already implemented, during pre-purchase research it stuck in my head that Pro version had such option.

    Is it possible to utilize Yoast’s function WPSEO_Primary_Term until the wordpress makes it easier to implement?

    Afaik WordPress doesn’t know about a “primary” category, it just lists them alphabetically, so even if AdRotate would pick the first one, that’s not necessarily your primary category.
    Some themes do this differently, but that’s not a WP feature unfortunately.
