It’s been a few months. And AdRotate Switch finally got updated to work with current and near future versions of AdRotate and AdRotate Pro.

The import scripts have been tested to work with current and the next versions of AdRotate (Pro)! Also some older versions are no longer supported due to changes internally to AdRotate and AdRotate Pro.

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.

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.

AdRotate Free 4.11.2 – Available now!

A quick update rolling back Post Injection to what it was in version 4.10. Which worked better than the current iteration. Fixing it for real has proven more difficult than anticipated and will take some time.

Turns out there was something wrong with Shortcodes and caching, this has been fixed, too.
