AdRotate Pro 5.0 – Better stats, better exports

Better stats, Better dashboard

This update focuses on the dashboard and display of stats. While the graphs in themselves haven’t changed – You can now navigate them much easier with datepickers. You can pick any range you want and see much more than just one month at a time. It took a while to figure out but this seems to work fine 🙂

A much requested feature for some time now. And finally it’s here. Let me know if you run into any quirks with the datepickers so I can improve them if nessesary.

Throughout pretty much every dashboard page there have been little tweaks and changes. Nothing all that drastic, but just small updates to make it just that better looking. Spacing, typos, field sizes. Pretty much everything got a good look and probably a little tweak. If you notice any irregularities, let me know 🙂

AdRotate Pro 4.17 – Improved PHP7 Compatibility

This is the first update of the year for AdRotate Professional. And we’re starting with some PHP7 Compatibility improvements. Keep reporting the quirks guys, it really helps 🙂

Earlier this month I revamped the whole website and a few things changed. This update implements those changes. New URLs and such. So the relevant urls, my LinkedIn and some other things for contacting me have been updated to be up-to-date again.

Demo banners

The demo banners used to link to a separate domain. Recently I let this domain expire a bit prematurely as I didn’t use it and wasn’t planning on using it. Now someone bought the domain and put a fake website on it. Don’t let that fool you. And yes, my lawyer is looking into it.

The only place to get AdRotate Professional or any related service legitimately is on this website – https://ajdg.solutions/

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.

Are AdRotate Free and AdRotate Pro GDPR compatible?

TLDR;

Yes, Both AdRotate Pro and AdRotate Free are compatible with GDPR.
Just make sure you inform your audience what you’re doing and what’s going to happen when they access your website.

What GDPR is all about

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. Which is forced onto the world by the lovely governance of the European Union.

These regulations have been years in the making and started years ago with the dreaded and Cookie Regulations. Now they’ve taken it a few steps further to include any data that may be personally identifiable in a similar scheme.

In short, GDPR is yet another useless attempt to control data and seemingly protect the user.

AdRotate Free 4.12 – Available now

A small update improving category filtering in Post Injection. Some child categories would get the adverts from their parents, too. Which used to be intended. But things have changed a bit in user preference.

To comply better with GDPR the impression trackers are no longer stored in cookies, but have been moved to Session data.
These cookies were to track impressions in dynamic groups. A few users mentioned there were too many cookies. And then GDPR came around, I realised it’s faster and easier to store them in Session data than to build in a button to allow extra cookies nobody wants anyway.
