Subscribe to the blog for updates and news

Did you know you can easily follow my blog via email and/or RSS Feeds? People often ask me; “is there an update for AdRotate Professional”. Or I get emails with support questions asking things that have either been fixed or added in later versions of the plugin. Clearly they didn’t know about updates. Some people didn’t update for years.

This is a security risk for various reasons, but also a big strain on support time. If I have to sort of copy paste “Update to the latest version, it’ll fix your issue” for half of the emails I have less time to answer real support questions.

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.
