In February of this year I wrote a blog post about the sad state the Update and AdRotate Geo API were in, causing problems for many AdRotate users. Have things improved since then?
This update includes a number of tweaks for automated updates. Has been tested with WordPress 5.5 and gets some small dashboard improvements.
The plugins WooCommerce Paypal Surcharge, WooCommerce Stripe Surcharge, WooCommerce Single Page Checkout, WooCommerce Show Review, WooCommerce Delete Orders and WooCommerce Payment Gateway Stats have all been checked to work with WooCommerce 4.3.1 and WordPress 5.5 and updated where necessary.
This update includes an important security fix for AdRotate. Update as soon as possible. New PHP Snippet syntax. Inline adverts are now easier to set up and manage. And a ton of other fixes and tweaks.
This update includes new status notifications for configuration errors in groups. Portable Adverts. Refined update checks (yes, again!) and some more handy improvements.
Maintenance update updating the french translation and to improve WordPress 5.4.1 compatibility. Also, once again, I tweaked the update procedure a bit.
A tiny little update with only a few fixes. All related to the uninstall script WordPress uses to possibly delete the AdRotate database. This update is important if you’re switching from the free version to AdRotate Pro or the other way around.
In version 5.8 we’re fixing a number of issues. I, yet again, improve the auto-update mechanics. And optimized the dashboard further to make it more easy to use AdRotate Professional. The plugin now ships with several translations and a lot of old code has been removed.
This marks the release of AdRotate Professional 5.7.3. An important update which changes quite a few things under the hood. Most notably all new API’ and less dashboard notifications. All non-essential fluff has been removed. And equally important the update process has been streamlined a bit further based on user feedback.
Over the last few months updating AdRotate Professional has not been as easy as it should be.
A ton of things have been going wrong with the update routine for many users. While for others it worked without a hitch. I’m one of those people where it usually works. So it’s a bit hard to find the problem. But here goes.
I took some more drastic measures to actually improve things and not just patch stuff up.
3 Major issues have come to light and have been fixed or will be fixed over the next few weeks.
