AdRotate Free 4.13.3 – Available now!

Updated all social links to point to the right Facebook Page. Re-arranged some strings and dashboard elements. Checked and verified that stats were accurate (since a bug in AdRotate Pro was fixed for a stats related issue). As far as I can see, it still works 🙂

Some reports that the schedule impression and/or click limit doesn’t work have been tested. I can find no such issue. All adverts disable/expire when they should.

Changelog

  • [fix] Social links pointing to the right page
  • [change] Dashboard tweaks
  • [change] Help tab links

A beautiful view, under a beautiful sky. I went for a ride around southern Negros in the Philippines earlier this week.

AdRotate Pro 4.16 – Improved Stats

This update improves a bunch of things in stats. Graphs draw now faster. Some numbers where shown incorrectly. This has been fixed.
More exciting is a new option for support.

Let me see

A common problem when solving problems is that the user (you) can’t explain very well what goes wrong and some are so bad to even get stuck at “it doesn’t work” (pretty much). This is frustrating for you, because in your perception my support sucks. And it’s frustrating for me, because I can’t see what’s wrong.

This has been made a little easier in AdRotate Pro 4.16 where the support form in your dashboard now has a checkbox to send me login details so I can take a look at your dashboard.

A invasion of privacy? No, if you don’t like it, don’t tick the box.
Is that useful? For the more complex problems it can be very useful and speed up finding a solution.
Is it safe? Just as safe as you sending login details in a follow-up email. The account can easily be deleted if you don’t want it anymore. Keeping your own admin account (and password) out of sight.

And here is what it looks like;

Changelog

  • [new] Share an account via the support form
  • [fix] Display of stats for “best” performing advert
  • [fix] Display of stats for “least” performing advert
  • [fix] Date picker format more visible
  • [change] Faster drawing of graphs
  • [change] Dashboard tweaks

Recently I went on a little road trip from Dumaguete to Bacolod for a few days. A fresh set of clothes, no laptop, and a fistful of pesos. Quite enjoyable 🙂

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.

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] Group IDs not always passed properly
  • [fix] Advertiser stats export not always working
  • [fix] Social links pointing to the wrong facebook account
  • [change] Removed Telegram as a contact option
  • [change] Removed Pushover support
  • [change] Removed Advertiser transactions

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 🙂
