This update improves a bunch of things in stats. Graphs draw now faster. Some numbers where shown incorrectly. This has been fixed.
More exciting is a new option for support.
Let me see
A common problem when solving problems is that the user (you) can’t explain very well what goes wrong and some are so bad to even get stuck at “it doesn’t work” (pretty much). This is frustrating for you, because in your perception my support sucks. And it’s frustrating for me, because I can’t see what’s wrong.
This has been made a little easier in AdRotate Pro 4.16 where the support form in your dashboard now has a checkbox to send me login details so I can take a look at your dashboard.Read more »
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.Read more »
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.Read more »
If there is interest I’ll investigate making a connector plugin to create a more automated solution.

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.Read more »
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.
Advertiser management has had some small improvements and bug fixes. As well as some changes to accommodate the new GDPR nonsense.
A number of improvements to AdRotate Geo Targeting. FreegeoIP closed down again and is now ran by Ipstack. They have free and paid accounts. Check out their offerings if you want to continue to use FreegeoIP.
