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 🙂

AdRotate Pro 4.13.1 – Datepickers

A quick update introducing an all new datepicker that actually works. Or as far as I can see. Date formats are now correct in all browsers, too.

For expired licenses (All licenses starting with 101) the force deactivate option now works, too. This of-course applies to everyone who wants to renew their license and has to swap it out at some point.

Don’t forget to renew your license, if you take a look at your Dashboard > Settings > License, you’ll be offered a renewal fee at a discount.

Changes

  • [fix] Date pickers not setting the right dates for some users
  • [fix] Editing schedules now sets right date format in all browsers
  • [fix] Force-deactivating old licenses working more reliable
  • [new] More attractive theme for date pickers

Phasing out legacy licenses

With the next update for AdRotate Pro I’ll be phasing out all legacy licenses. This means that if you want to continue to use AdRotate Pro after that and receive updates, premium support and access to AdRotate Geo you’re going to need a new license key.

Who will be affected

Without exception, all licenses starting with 101, those sold before January 2015, will no longer receive updates and support. And, later on, will be excluded from AdRotate Geo as well.

If you wish to continue to receive updates, support and have access to AdRotate Geo you need a new license after the next update of AdRotate Pro.

Long overdue

The first of these licenses was sold way way back in 2012. The last one was sold in December 2014. In January-February of 2015 the current series was introduced.

The older licenses are imported from the old adrotateplugin.com website. Which hasn’t been online for years. The original idea was to introduce a new series of licenses every year or so. But that didn’t happen. Plans changed and I kept postponing any phasing out of any license.
The 101 licenses are well overdue for renewals. It’s time to make room for more modern systems and APIs. Time to move on.

What’s next

In the next update, which will be ready in a few weeks, users of these licenses will no longer receive updates for versions after that. You will be offered a upgrade path with a fair renewal fee. This will get you a new modern license in the new system.
This new license will give you access to updates, support and AdRotate Geo.
