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.

AdRotate Free 4.11.1 – Datepickers

A small update, more like a hotfix or patch, which addresses the semi-broken date pickers. Turns out the native datepickers don’t really work and the fallback option didn’t always work.

Now the fallback date picker is the default one and it’s working everywhere. Huzzah!

Changes

  • [fix] Date pickers not setting the right dates for some users
  • [fix] Editing schedules now sets right date format in all browsers
  • [new] More attractive theme for date pickers

AdRotate Free 4.11 – Available now!

This update fixes a bunch of things for PHP7 and newer. The dashboard has been redone in a few small areas making it more intuitive and attractive.
Next to that caching notifications have been redone. Some are removed, others rewritten. Turns out that not everyone wants to know if their adverts may be cached and not rotate…

Datepickers

A bigger issue, date pickers. Pretty much every modern browsers supports native date pickers these days. Even iOS Safari. But not desktop Safari. yay!
So to remedy this I’ve created a basic and functional datepicker for browsers that do not support it, which currently will be mostly Safari users.

Some older browsers will not support the native datepicker and they too should fall back on the one I’ve added now. But I have no browser to test this – Let me know if you run into trouble with datepickers.

Changes

  • [change] Widgets loaded via WordPress method
  • [change] Dashboard tweaks and improvements
  • [change] Caching notifications optimised
  • [fix] Datepickers not working in Safari (macOS)

Sulphurous river

The mountain next to it is decaying from all the sulphur in it. Most of the crumble and rocks drops down in the river. The rocks turned red, the water in some places has a yellowish haze and the whole place smells like ass.
