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;

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 🙂

Post Injection redone and reinvented

The next update for AdRotate Pro and AdRotate Free will be all about Post Injection. The whole system is going to be redone.
I’m tired of theme incompatibilities. And over the last few months, based on user feedback and comments, I’ve pretty much pinpointed the limitations how Post Injection currently works.

I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to fix things, but I’ll probably take the whole option set away from groups and make it a separate thing. This should allow for greater control (hopefully) of where and how many adverts show up in places.

I’ve looked at some other plugins on how they do it, yes I’m cheating a bit, and have some ideas on how to make things right.

So far I’ve always tried to patch things up based on the current mindset, clearly it’s not working and as much as I dispise ever inventing Post Injection, it is a popular feature that is important to a lot of users. So we’re stuck with it, pretty much.

Stay tuned for fanciness and working Post Injection.
