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] 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
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
[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.
[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?
[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
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?).
[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.
[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
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
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.
[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.
Rename the name of the placementFor some reasons, such as a more meaningful name or a new purpose, renaming a placement is very useful.
[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.
[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.
[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.
[Pro or Sticky] Page Peel PlacementPlease add page peel to Advanced Ads Placement. Page peel is usually placed in the top right corner but can be on the left too.
[Pro] Animations for Ad rotationWhen 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.
[Selling] Ad limits per groupWould 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.
[Geo] Allow targeting by zip codesMight only work for some countries though.
Random Div Tags – Support for Infinite ScrollCurrently only Google Adsense and direct placements reliably work on sites that use infinite scroll. If you try to use natives, video, or any other unit, even those that load asynchronously, they will generally always load in the first div container of the first article (because it has the same name) when a new post is loaded via infinite scroll. To solve this problem, you have to tell the ads to load into a different unique div container when a new article is loaded. You could do this by implementing some logic that if the same placement is fired twice in the same session, that a new div tag will be set for that placement.
[Pro | Selling ] Integrate selling with Woo-Commerce SubscriptionsWooCommerce 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.
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
