[Pro] Automated split tests

Advanced Ads might automate the split-testing for me by monitoring clicks and then automatically "selecting" a winner to continue showing, like AdSense does.

[Pro|Selling] Email notification before an ad expires

Send 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.

[Selling] Pre-booked ad space

Allow 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.

Rename the name of the placement

For some reasons, such as a more meaningful name or a new purpose, renaming a placement is very useful.

Preview Of Ad

A 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

[Selling] Calendar in backend for admins

I 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.

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.

If adsense ad loads blank, display alternate ad

So 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?).

[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.

Insert Evenly Spaced Ads In Content Based on Content Length

The 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

[Selling|Pro] Group ads by client

Currently, 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.

[Sticky] Header Ad placement should not cover website header

The 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?

[Selling Ads] setup banner image dimensions

1) 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

[Selling Ads] Additional options for clients

It 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

[Pro | Selling ] Integrate selling with Woo-Commerce Subscriptions

WooCommerce Subscriptions is a paid add-on that allows subscription products to be auto-renewed at a certain time like many services that can be purchased on the Internet. This is perfect for my ad-selling use case where a monthly, quarterly or ad subscription auto-renews. Dev note: Advanced Ads would be happy to test this if any of our users would set it up on our test site.

Add block editor to “rich content” editor

How about adding the Gutenberg editor option to Ad Type: Rich content editor? This would open up a whole new spectrum of ad creation.

[Sticky] Option to set a number of pixels in scroll to show or hide a Top horizontal Sticky Ad

I think that would be great when using, like I do on my site, a Top Horizontal Sticky Bar as a Sticky navigation menu.

[Selling] Ad limits per group

Would love to see the ability to limit the number of ads shown in a group and disable the ad from the store if that limit is reached.

[Selling Ads] Sales price

I would like to be able to provide the Selling products also with an offer. Like the normal products in Woocommerce. So current price 50 offer price 35, and that for a certain term.

[Pro] temporal integration of ads also by hours

The temporal integration of ads works only for days, not for hours. For some advertisers an hourly control is required.

Ad-specific Advertisement-Labels

currently we are able to configure one single label to ALL advertisements and we can disable the ad label for specific placements However, I like to see an option either on level of the advertisement or placements to give a different/custom label. I like the idea to indicate the ad type like: Advertisement, Affiliate, Sponsor, Partner etc.

[Pro] Animations for Ad rotation

When using the in place Ad rotation an Ad rotates without any animation, it's there and the next one. Especially for larger Ads, in specific full screen Ads this is highly annoying, ugly to see and it does not look professional ('aggresive'). Adding an animation like Slide or Fade for this in place rotation will increase the look and feel of such an Ad.

“repeat the position” option for infeed ads

It may be nice to have a "repeat placement" option for the "Adsense infeed" addon. I personally place infeed ads every 3 posts... But as my number of posts increases, I have to create more placements which differ only by the value "Inject before" x "posts"... Note that this option already exists for the "content" placement...

[Selling] Self Renew for Advertisers Coupled with Auto Reminders

Feature Idea: Advertisers can renew (and pay for) their own ads. When business is good we have fifty or more advertisers. Keeping track of who is expiring when, following up with reminders and chasing them to pay is time consuming. Would like to see reminders about their ad expiration could go out automatically, starting a month before the ad expires, with two or three reminders spaced out, and the advertiser could click a link to renew (and pay for) their ad at any time.

Automated Weight based on CTR

[Pro] Avoid repeating ads after page reload

When rotating ads, it would be nice if there was a feature to keep the same ads from being shown on the same page back to back. While the plug-in offers to not duplicate ads, it doesn't offer a way to control excessive ad clustering of the same ad. By adding an option that requires that the next ad on the page is different from the ad on the previous page impression, that would avoid some of the ad clustering.

Redirection to ad after change of site

When the reader clicks on a link to go to a blog post or other page, they are redirected to a full page add that can be closed to go to the intended post or page.

Option to remove an ad directly after it was clicked

Add an option that allows removing the ad once it was clicked. It would not need the "Max. Clicks" visitor condition to work since it might be useful in other circumstances as well.

Parallax ads

Ads that are "pinned" behind content and show through at defined sections in the content. Just like: http://gallery.smartadserver.com/parallax

[POLL] Using the qTranslate-XT Plugin

Hi to all, how many of you use the qTranslate-XT plugin on your WordPress website? Or if you used it, if you had problems with Advanced Ads. I use both plugins and I found a problem, talking to the creator of Advanced Ads does not know how many use qTranslate-X to be able to create a version of Advanced Ads also compatible with qTranslate-X.

Page scrolled (px) - The animation starts when the page is scrolled for the specified number of pixels (specify only numerical value). Element visible - The animation starts when specific HTML element becomes visible. Specify CSS selector for the element (#id or .class).

“ad setting” box in wp “categories” as well

The "Ad Settings" on single edit pages for posts and pages allow disabling all ads on them. There should be something similar on category edit pages so that all ads are disabled for a certain category archive and posts belonging to them.

[Selling Ads] Ad Setup Description

Currently, the ad setup page is filled with a "placement type" which should be internal use only. It should include the description and the product title. Many advertisers forget what ad they're even uploading!

[PopUp] Show when a button is clicked. Great for optin forms and ads!

I want to use popups for optin forms so I can use group rotation to split test and find out what gets the most subscribers. It's tricky to do this now, so I'd like the process of triggering a popup from a button to be simplified. It would also be cool to be able to deliver some ads in a popup like this too.

Sliding banner

I would love to be able to have a sliding banner for announcements that I’d like to run without having to restructure the page. I’m not talking like the stock market ticker tape. I’m talking 200px in height that allows for fancy fonts, multiple lines, and an image. You know how people love images and hate to read.

Option to hide ads on all private pages.

In the settings, disable ads option: disable ads on private pages. Most ad networks do not allow ads behind password or private pages.

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”
