AdRotate Free 4.13.2 – Available now!

Updated the dashboard and made a few tweaks in the background so the plugin works better. Fixed a weird bug on PHP5.6 servers. If you run into other PHP warnings or errors, let me know as soon as possible so a fix can be investigated and applied.

Telegram proved to be useless as a chat/social media option so that has been removed. If you want to chat, use Facebook instead. That’s the fastest option for premium support or a quick question. Though this is aimed more to users of AdRotate Professional.

Changes

  • [fix] T_STRING error on activation on PHP5.6
  • [fix] Social links pointing to the wrong facebook account
  • [change] Removed Telegram as a contact option

AdRotate Pro 4.15 – Removed Transactions

An important update where the dashboard got some tweaks and optimisations. A few small bug fixes and the social stuff has been updated.

More importantly though, the underused Transactions Feature got removed. Current and ongoing transactions are still listed in the Advertisers dashboard in the sub menu Transactions. This is for reference.
No new transactions can be made or paid. All functionality has been removed.

As an alternative way, you can set up products in a plugin like WooCommerce.
If there is interest I’ll investigate making a connector plugin to create a more automated solution.

To the big city

I was in Cebu city in the Philippines last week. A 6 hour bus ride away from where I live. It was an ok experience. Shopping was fun and disappointing at the same time. This country has a long way to go in terms of product availability. Still on the upside, I ate a whole lot of food that’s not available here in Dumaguete and I bought new underwear 🙂

Escape the rain

Rainy season is no joke, it’s not much fun either. Especially when driving a motorcycle and you’re on your way to somewhere.
These rain showers luckily could be avoided for the most part.
