On this page, you can suggest a new feature or vote for other feature requests. The suggestions and votes help me to determine the next features but are not binding.
Submissions will be kept for about 3 months. If they don’t get more than 10 votes I might remove them.
[Pro|Selling] Email notification before an ad expiresSend an email notification to notify e.g. 5 day before an ad expires. That way we can go back to the client to see if they would like to renew and keep track of each individual ad that expires on a different date.
[Pro] Automated split testsAdvanced Ads might automate the split-testing for me by monitoring clicks and then automatically "selecting" a winner to continue showing, like AdSense does.
[Pro] pre-roll ads on videocan you please make your plugin support pre-roll ads on videos ? it must support : dailymotion , youtube , vimeo, and maybe instagram and facebook player, it well be great ! Dev note: not sure if this is even possible for these services.
[Selling] Pre-booked ad spaceAllow option for potential advertisers to pay for pre-booked spaces. Then when spaces are booked out, a notification will tell other advertisers that the specific space on those specific dates are currently full. Could be shown on a booking calendar? Even if this is not done on the front end, if spaces could be named, and linked to calendar, it would allowed potential advertisers to see what spaces are available, and when. This would then open other possibilities for advertisers to be put on a "waiting list" for cancellations, or encouraged to fill other spaces, offering "us" the highest income chances.

[Selling] Bill for a period of time…I would like to have the option to bill clients monthly, annually or by any other period of time.
[Selling] Advertisers should only have access to their own ads and statsWe have multiple advertisers on our site and when they go to the "Ads" screen, they can view and edit not only their own ads and stats, but all other advertisers (many times it's their competitors). Dev Note: we might add this to the client account in the frontend and not let clients access WP Admin.
[Selling] Calendar in backend for adminsI have a lot of ad spaces across my website. Each ad space may have 1 ad, or maybe multiple ads. When clients book a specific space for a certain period of time for a future date, it's a lot of work keeping up with when a space is "fully booked". If there was a calendar that linked with created and scheduled ads, it could notify us on when a space is full and for what period of time.
[Selling] Forms for ad informationBeing able to set up forms to gather the right information for creating and displaying an ad would be great. For example, we sell ads to Piano Dealers who may operate in a number of States (in the U.S.). They will need to enter all the basic business details, their web site, brand sold, services offered, etc.
Ads between commentsDisplay ads between comments, for example before last comment
[Selling] Show ads stats in client profileShow stats of ads a client purchased in his user profile created during first checkout.
[Geo] Use CloudFlare IP Geolocation header to do geolocation with passive cache bustingIf you use Cloudflare, you can enable "IP Geolocation". If this option is enabled CloudFlare sets a "CF-country" header on each request. If to know the country is good enough, the geolocation visitor condition could be executed without using PHP. Note: This would basically make geo location much faster and work with Caching
[Selling Ads] Additional options for clientsIt would be great if products could be set up with the following options: - Let Customer select countries where the ad should be displayed - Let customer choose the Archive Categories where to place an ad
[Selling|Pro] Group ads by clientCurrently, clients with multiple banners get one link for each banner. How about being able to group them by client so we can give them one link and they can get to all of their stats easily, or see the aggregate statistics.
Preview Of AdA nice addition would be to have a preview of an ad (Not an image, but coded) to show up on the Edit Ad Page once the code is input in the Parameter Box. Obviously, such an option could turned on and off within the general settings of the plugin
[Sticky] Header Ad placement should not cover website headerThe Sticky Header Ad covers the header of the site. Would be better to “push” the rest of the site down rather than cover the header. Also, for logged in users, the black WordPress Admin Bar covers the sticky header ad. Can the sticky header ad start below the WordPress Admin Bar when it is displayed?
If adsense ad loads blank, display alternate adSo sometimes adsense doesn't display an ad for whatever reason. It would be nice to have a way for Adv. Ads to detect this and then display an alternate ad (group?).
[Selling Ads] setup banner image dimensions1) add to the Selling ADS Product the image dimensions (for example 728x90) 2) setup an alert if the user tries to upload in the Creation ADS page an image with the wrong dimensions. In this way the user will upload only correct image dimensions for the correct placement
[Sticky] Option to set a number of pixels in scroll to show or hide a Top horizontal Sticky AdI think that would be great when using, like I do on my site, a Top Horizontal Sticky Bar as a Sticky navigation menu.
Add multiple images on the same ad (e.g. devices, specific dates, etc.)For example, a desktop image and a mobile image. And also an image to show "to" and another to show "from" (especific dates for ads rotation). Although it is contemplated, you have to create any of these as individual ads and manage those options on the Group. Giving the option on the ad itselfs avoids the creation of mutiple ads for the same product/campaign.
[Pro] Adsense Click Bombing ProtectionPlease add very important feature required by all bloggers. Adsense Click Bombing Protection.
[Pro] Select position in content based on %I would like to place at a percentage through post i.e. 50% rather than after say 8 paragraphs.
[Sticky] – stop elementWould be cool to have an option to specify a 'stop element' that will prevent a sticky ad from scrolling to the very bottom.
Insert Evenly Spaced Ads In Content Based on Content LengthThe idea would be to allow a user to set an article length and define the number of ads that would be inserted into the content automatically. The ads would be evenly spaced and would be pulled from a predefined list of Ads, Placements, or Groups. Users could define multiple article lengths. For example: Under 600 Words: 3 Ads - Placements at 0% (START), 50%, 100% (END) 601-1000: 4 Ads - Placements at 0%, 33%, 66%, 100% 1000-1500: 5 Ads - Placements at 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, 100% 1501+ Words: 6 Ads - Placements at 0, 20, 40, 60, 80, 100
[Sticky] Slide in ADsCreate a slider ad that is automated and slides in from the right (or left) side of the page after user scrolls down a designated amount of space. Very similar to pop up ad but sliding in instead of popping up.
Rename the name of the placementFor some reasons, such as a more meaningful name or a new purpose, renaming a placement is very useful.
[Pro] temporal integration of ads also by hoursThe temporal integration of ads works only for days, not for hours. For some advertisers an hourly control is required.
[Pro] “Ad placement/position” before/after any headlineCurrently, we can position ad relative to a specific header tag, e.g. only H3. It would be great if we can position an ad (for example) after the 4th header tag (total of H2 + H3). H2, H3, H3, H4, H2, (ad here), H3, H3
[Tracking] Count unique viewsI think it makes sense to not just count impressions, but also unique views. So you can tell how many people have seen the ads, not just how many ads impressions were achieved.
Collapse ad list on Ad group tableThe ad list is too long for us if we have assigned many ads to an ad group. It might be collapsed by default.
What happens with Feature Requests?
We take feature requests and the voting very seriously. Once an item is among the top 5 to 10 we start looking into them and estimate if they are technically possible and match the purpose of Advanced Ads. Only very few items get removed after that.
There is no deadline, but you can be sure that we are working in some way or another on the top items.
Here are a few examples of implemented features that have been on this list.
- Advance Scheduling based on Post Age
- E-Mail reports for impressions and clicks (Tracking)
- Skin Ads (Pro)
- WPML Support
- Selling ads
- AdSense on AMP pages
- Export / Import
- Ad Label like “Advertisement”
