Using groups, I have deselected real estate for the brown “new construction” ad you see on http://www.leominsterchamp.com/category/real-estate/
I selected only real estate for another group which is showing the orange ad. The selected real-estate only widget works fine – it only shows on real estate archives & posts. But the other ad, which should not show, and is de-selected in it’s group, still shows.
Am I doing something wrong?January 26, 2017 at 8:38 am #24448
Probably because you use a incompatible cache plugin.
AdRotate has support for W3 Total Cache.
Check out this manual on making the two plugins work together; https://ajdg.solutions/manuals/adrotate-manuals/caching-support/January 27, 2017 at 1:40 am #24517
I am using W3 & we have the code added to the site, and the caching setting in AdRotate is turned on.
I am using Widgets for these particular ads, not the actual “insert” – is that possibly causing it?
Like I said, the real estate ad shows up fine, but the other ad does not disappear, even though the category is unchecked in the group for it.
Thank you,January 27, 2017 at 8:27 am #24536
For fragmented caching to work you need a few specific options to work.
Just ticking the box and do whatever is not enough.
The required options are described I the guide I linked earlier.January 27, 2017 at 9:48 pm #24564
I have followed all your instructions regarding caching – while the ad behaves appropriately for above / below / inside content, but NOT with widget option. I have ads in a widgetized area below the menu / above the content title – there is a widget option w/ post injection, which I have selected, but it is not performing correctly.
I would really like for this to work correctly as content-based does NOT show in category archive pages, only on actual articles pages.January 27, 2017 at 10:13 pm #24566
The AdRotate widget does not use/support fragmented caching – But you can use a shortcode in a textwidget to get the same effect.January 27, 2017 at 10:49 pm #24568
I just tried the text widget + shortcode and it’s still not working. Do you have any other suggestions or am i just out of luck? Also, will the widget support fragment caching at any time in the future? thank you.January 30, 2017 at 9:10 am #24624
Hmm, I mixed up my memory with AdRotates Disguise function 🙁
The widget already works with fragmented caching.
As far as I can see the current implementation works fine with W3 Total Caching if you follow the guide I linked to earlier – It works for many users.
Maybe something else is hindering things, some hosting providers have server caching for example. None of such things offer a useful compatibility layer.February 15, 2017 at 5:51 pm #25455
I have a same problem here.
I was tested many times, many options. But banner is still showing all categories.
I placed my adrotate group shortcode on theme ad place. Like this:
And selected all categories to disable showing ad, like this:
But banner is stil showing, how to fix this problem? I’m using AdRotate Professional Version 3.18.1
I’m not using any cache plugins.February 16, 2017 at 2:32 pm #25508
@52x How can you have the same issue if you don’t use a caching plugin.
That said, if the adverts are still there, then you ARE using caching though – So clear your cache.February 17, 2017 at 10:51 am #25558
Adverts are still here, it’s server based cache, i already cleared. Need to clear browser cache too?
Can you test it yourself? I think Post injection options if not working.February 20, 2017 at 5:47 pm #25679
I have no server that does server side caching, so I can’t test that.
Browser cache usually shouldn’t be an issue.
Post Injection works fine for many people – Currently I have no reason to doubt it’s working.February 23, 2017 at 12:27 am #25890
I was disabled all caches. But banner is still showing.
Is there any documentation about ad filtering?February 23, 2017 at 8:28 am #25908
If the advert seems stuck and you have no caching, the advert logically is just there. Placed with a shortcode or php code or something. Maybe a widget, or even Post Injection.
AdRotate has no possibility to do things on it’s own without you (or an admin) telling you to do something. So if the advert won’t go away, there is a call somewhere in that post that makes that happen.
Not sure what you mean with ad filtering but all manuals can be found here: https://ajdg.solutions/manuals/adrotate-manuals/
