AdRotate Pro update notice received via email

Difficulty: Easy | Updated: May 16, 2019

If you see this page you’ve received an email notifying you that your installation of AdRotate Pro hasn’t been updated in at least 90 days. Or is more than 5 versions behind on the current version. AdRotate Pro, like most other plugins, will receive updates from time to time. Usually once per month or so.

To motivate people to update more often I’ve put an automatic system in place which looks at your interactions with the update server. If your website regularly checks for updates and you consistently do not update your setup you may receive an email asking you to do so.

The number one response in my support efforts is that people should update their AdRotate installations first. Most of the time the issue they’re having or the feature they’re missing is because they didn’t update.

Updating AdRotate Pro

Updates are of-course optional, but they are an important thing to do. Often bug fixes are included in newer versions. Sometimes these are security related or simply fix broken features. In larger updates new features are included or old features are overhauled, making the plugin that much better.

Updating is therefor quite important, if not with every update, then at-least twice a year or so.

Automatic updates for AdRotate Pro

Updates are offered through your dashboard, just like other plugins on the plugins page or the WordPress update dashboard. When the update shows up in your dashboard, you can install the update with only a few clicks, just like any other plugin update.

I personally prefer to do updates via the Dashboard > Updates dashboard page. As it gives a more complete overview of all updates and has a Check Update button.

Manually updating AdRotate Pro

If you prefer the update manually, or the automatic update doesn’t show, check out this guide for details on how to update your setup yourself; Upgrade AdRotate Pro to a newer version!

After WordPress installs the update for you, you may be prompted to click a big green “Finish Update” button to complete the update. You’ll see this in an Orange/Black notification bar along the top of your dashboard.

Having AdRotate Pro updated as a service

If you have no time to update AdRotate Pro yourself, or if you simply don’t know how. Maybe something went wrong doing the update… I can do the update for you as a service. For a small fee I can install the update for you.
Usually doing the update takes about 1 business day.
For more information, take a look at the AdRotate Update Service product page.

Current Licenses

If you have a license that starts with 102 or 103 you will receive update notifications via your WordPress dashboard. To get notified on your dashboard you need a valid and activated license key on that website.

End-of-Life licenses

If your license starts with 101 no updates are offered beyond version 4.13.2 as all licenses starting with 101 reached end-of-life in 2018. More on that here; AdRotate Pro License Renewal.
