AdRotate Free 4.10 – Available now

I’ve finally added Jetpack Photon support. This update also includes a number of small improvements to the dashboard and improves the Borlabs Caching integration.
Datepickers have been added for scheduling which should make that a more intuitive action.

Lastly, and ongoing, is the improved compatibility with PHP7.2. If you find more quirks with PHP7+ let me know ASAP.


  • [fix] Improved integration with Jetpack Photon
  • [fix] Improved PHP7.2+ compatibility
  • [new] Date pickers for advert scheduling
  • [change] Compatibility with Borlabs Cache

Got a new motorbike

Earlier this week I bought a Kawasaki Versys-X300. A medium sized motorbike which packs a punch or two. I’m still on the looking for some accessoiries to make it “my” bike. Me and my girlfriend have been driving around a bunch and found lots of nice views. More to come for sure 🙂

AdRotate Pro 4.12 – Datepickers and improvements

It’s been a while, I’ve been travelling and a lot has happened and changed in my life over the last 2 months. But I’ve rented a house for a while and hope to work not reliably on AdRotate Pro for a while again.

Focus a bit more on features and general improvements.

This release has been in the making for a few weeks and includes a number of fixes and improvements. I finally found a way to use proper date pickers with Unix timestamps. Which took some trial and error in how to split up the dates and such.

Google tracking has been improved and should now give a more clear picture of performance. And Jetpack Photon support has been added for adverts with banner images. I’ve worked with de developer from Borlabs Cache to make a better integration possible, which is included as well.


  • [fix] Improved integration with Jetpack Photon
  • [fix] Improved PHP7.2+ compatibility

Roll-on Roll-off ferries

Recently I’ve been travelling a lot by motorbike. Which, in the Philippines, means a lot of island hopping. This is usually done with ferries or RoRo boats. Most routes have 40-50 year old ships. These old barges and crappy boats go everywhere. This one wasn’t all that bad. But it was damn slow and uncomfortable.

Infrastructure upgrades and API changes

New infrastructure and servers

Over the last week I’ve been hard at work to finally resolve the issues with performance and up-time that plagued the AJdG Solutions website since mid December last year. MediaTemple kept denying any issues and couldn’t stop pointing fingers are everyone but themselves.

Very unprofessional for the stupendous amount of money I paid them monthly. But alas, their support was, as usual, completely inept. Too bad! So after a few days of frustratingly dealing with tickets and people pretty much ignoring me, I gave up and moved to a new hosting provider. So far that seems better and more stable.

I’m still ironing out some minor kinks, but so far so good.

Old AdRotate Geo API discontinued

Users of my AdRotate Pro plugin will know I offer various API for updates, AdRotate Geo and some other stuff.

Due to ongoing abuse of the older AdRotate Geo API, versions 1 and 2 will be obsolete effective immediately.

These API versions will soon be shut down and no longer return Geo Targeting information. If you’re still using AdRotate Versions 3.18.2 or older and you’re using AdRotate Geo, your geo targeting will no longer work in a few days.

Updating to the current version of AdRotate Pro will fix this and is the only solution. I’m not going to develop work-arounds or silly hacks. No need to ask… Just update the plugin!

A step-by-step update guide is available here.
If you need help with updating, or simply do not want to do it yourself you can use my AdRotate update service.

You are urgently advised to upgrade to AdRotate Pro 4 or newer. Version 4.11 has been released earlier today and is available for free for everyone who bought a license!
