AdRotate Pro 4.11 – New features!

Happy new year!
It’s been a while, the new year has arrived. And with that, a bunch of new features right of the bat. I’ve re-added FreegeoIP for Geo Targeting. Added more caching support options and support for Google their new tracking tag.
Check out the settings in the plugin to see more.

I’ve made a number of changes to the dashboard, including the removal of the slow and ugly Facebook widget. I’m sort of looking to phase out Facebook a bit more from my life, so now you have a pretty banner to my website to look at. Among with some other dashboard improvements.

Shopping in the Philippines

Most villages and settlements in the Philippines have no supermarkets. Instead they have things called Sari-sari shops. They’re selling crap like instant noodles, candies, soap, peanuts and sometimes softdrinks or even cornetto’s. In some villages they serve as the major, and only, shop in town. In which case they sell some 2nd hand clothes, rice, fish, cheap toys and such like. For us westerners it’s way to simplistic and incomplete most of the time. Though I often buy drinks in such shops on my day adventures though.

Finally, it’s mostly ready. Yay!

Also the code generator has been expanded a bit and improved throughout the plugin. Half finished adverts are no longer showing up in Groups and Schedules in the dashboard.

Long overdue, the media manager got a bit of a overhaul. And it’s mostly done.

Analytics Spam Blocker now under my wing!

Recently I’ve rewritten en re-released the fairly popular Analytics Spam Blocker. Originally created by Luke Williamson. He didn’t want to continue the project so I asked if I could take over and he agreed 🙂

Not being updated for a while there was a bunch of stuff to do, I’ve optimised the plugin a bit and rewritten a bunch of stuff to make it work with more modern WordPress versions – Though Lukes code was nice and not much needed to be done there.

More importantly. With the spawning of new bots and referral spam every day, a common complaint was that new domains to block weren’t included in the plugin fast enough. With my new version this is mostly negated by an automatic reporting system.
