AdSanity is a light ad rotator plugin for WordPress. It allows the user to create and manage ads shown on a website as well as keep statistics on views and clicks.
The Ad Block Detection Add-On allows the AdSanity administrator to give feedback to visitors of their AdSanity powered websites who are running an ad blocker on their browser. We always recommend trying to follow the wishes of visitors to your website, however, your advertising is where you make your revenue. You can now let visitors know that in order to enjoy the content you’re providing they’ll need to disable their ad blockers. The plugin gives you control over the content of this warning message in a configurable modal or to alternatively redirect those users that use ad blocking software to a page that you’ve specifically built to address this issue.
The Advertiser Reporting Add-On connects WordPress user accounts with specific advertisements so that site owners can provide advertisers with self-service access to the reporting for their ads. First, the Add-On creates a new user role for WordPress so that you can create advertiser specific credentials for your advertisers. Once an Advertiser user account has been created, they can be assigned to an ad during the creation or editing process. Advertisers can login to your website and view reporting for the ads that are associated with their account. Additionally, a default email notification can be set for expiring ads so that your advertisers are notified when their advertising needs to be renewed.
The Conditional Ad Appearance Add-On provides a new metabox on the Create Ad screen. This metabox is titled “Conditional Ad Appearance” and is disabled by default. Once enabled you are able to choose the condition for the display of the ad. First, you can choose the condition type from a dropdown list of options. Anything from a specific post to a category, or even a specific user role can be chosen as the type of condition. Then you can choose if the condition type is met or not.
The Custom Ad Sizes Add-On provides the AdSanity manager with a simple-to-use interface for creating custom ad sizes for use with AdSanity. As a bonus, the Add-On displays all of the standard supported sizes on a convenient page to ensure that you don’t create an ad size that already exists. In addition, it makes a fine reference for planning your ad units. You are able to create and delete new ad unit sizes as well as delete the standard ad unit sizes. This way you can prevent unwanted add units from being used on the site. This also focuses your ad creation on the ad units that you are using on the site.
The Google Analytics platform provides robust tracking and reporting functionality. This Add-On will offload the burden of tracking and storing statistical data from your site to this robust platform. The Google Analytics Tracking Add-On allows tracking of ads from both self-hosted sources as well as external ads from ad networks. If you are running a high traffic site, we highly recommend using this Add-On to further increase the performance of AdSanity. Please note that you must have a Google Analytics account to use this Add-On. This account should have a property defined that represents your website and you must have connected your site to this property.
Statistics for your views and clicks will update in the Reports section of your dashboard within 24 – 48 hours. If you’d like to track the statistics in real time, you can access the Events in your Google Analytics dashboard. We’re excited to announce that AdSanity’s Google Analytics Tracking Integration add-on is now compatible with Google Analytics Version 4. You can connect the add-on to your new property just as easily as you did with your Universal Analytics property.
The Image Cache Buster Add-On provides a simple and seamless cache clearing string to all ad images. This will force your cache to clear old versions of the ad. This can be particularly helpful if you find that your animated gif ads aren’t animating as expected. You may have caching on as a performance optimization for your website. This is a great idea and follows best practices, but you want to make sure that your ads display as intended. The best part of this Add-On is that there are no configurations. It’s one of the few times that you can actually set it and forget it.
With AdSanity Core, you are limited to expiring ads based on dates. With the Impressions add-on, you now have the ability to expire an ad after a specific number of views. This opens up the ability to charge your advertisers based on the visibility of their ads. While AdSanity Core doesn’t offer the ability to charge advertisers for ad space directly, we’ve written about how to set this up using a combination of other plugins including how to set up self-service reporting with our Advertiser Reporting add-on.
The Ordered Ad Group Widget Add-On for AdSanity offers AdSanity users a new way to add advertisements to their pages or posts. With this new widget you are able to configure a specific set of your ads to display in the order you indicate. This is ideal for situations where you have two differently sized ads next to one another, or even for a single row of ads that you want to be able to reorder from time to time. In addition to the new widget, you can build a shortcode from the text editor as well. This will give you the same functionality that exists in the widget within your content.
The Rotating Ad Widget Add-On gives you the ability to have on-page, timed rotation for your ad groups in AdSanity. The new functionality is packaged in two convenient ways. You’ll have a new widget in the list of widgets. When you drag it into place, you’ll have the option of choosing a title, placing one of your pre-existing ad groups, setting a time delay, and choosing the alignment of the group. If you prefer the shortcode approach, you’ll also find a new rotating ad group shortcode builder on your text editor. This new shortcode builder allows you to place your rotating ad groups on your page or post as you’re composing content. The same choices – ad group, time of delay, and alignment are available via this shortcode builder.
The Rotating Ad Widget Add-On is intended for use with self-hosted ads. Many ad networks have specific clauses in their agreement terms that may prohibit altering the display of the advertisements they serve. However, we have left this decision in your hands. We have a settings page for the Rotating Ad Widget Add-On that allows you to open this functionality up for your external ads as well. Be sure to read your terms and conditions for your network accounts carefully as many networks will blacklist sites that violate their rules of operation.
The User Role Ad Visibility Add-On provides the site owner the ability to hide ads based on the role of the visitor of the website. If you disable visibility for a user role, that user role will no longer see ads on the website. A user will need to be logged in for their role to be acknowledged by the site. User roles can come from multiple sources and the User Role Ad Visibility Add-On will recognize any non-standard roles. Should the ad be placed in one of AdSanity’s standard (or Add-On specific) widgets then the entire widget will not be visible for the chosen role (including any titles set on those widgets).
One of the most frequently requested features we’ve had is a way to give some ads more weight than others in terms of how often they appear in random ad groups or in rotating ads. The Weighted Ads Add-On for AdSanity provides that functionality. Now when you’re creating an ad you can give that ad a weight that indicates how often that you’d like that ad to appear whenever you’re using a random display of ads.
