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 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.
[Sticky] ad widget
Create a sticky widget, which stops scrolling the sidebar if top/bottom is reached and fixes it to the screen.
Meant for the Sticky add-on
[Pro] pre-roll ads on video
can 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.
[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.
[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.

Show AdSense stats in Dashboard
Display AdSense earnings per unit daily, monthly, etc, right within the WP dashboard.
[Selling] Advertisers should only have access to their own ads and stats
We 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] 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.
[Geo] Use CloudFlare IP Geolocation header to do geolocation with passive cache busting
If 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
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.
[Selling] Forms for ad information
Being 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 comments
Display ads between comments, for example before last comment
[Selling] Auctioning advertising space
Way to make advertising prices go up/down dynamically based on supply and demand.
[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] 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, Sticky] Change ad on scroll
Change ads during page scrolling. When the user scrolls down, a sticky ad should change its content automatically.
[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] Show ads stats in client profile
Show stats of ads a client purchased in his user profile created during first checkout.
[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.
[Geo] Custom Country Grouping
It would be really nice if it were possible to group a list of countries into a custom group for ad geo-targeting purposes.
[Tracking] Add multiple email addresses to the report settings on the ad edit settings
It would be great if we could add multiple email addresses (comma delimited) to the report (recipient) settings in the stats meta box on the ad edit settings.
Slide in ADs
Create 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.
[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.
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
[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.
Add sortable CTR column in the Ad list
It would be very useful to have the ability to sort Ads by CTR in the backend. That should be easy since impressions and clicks are already there.
Ad Placement works with article slides (Theia Post Slider)
Currently Ad Placement doesn’t work with Theia Post Slider. The ad can display in a slide when the page is first loaded, but if switch to another slide via AJAX, the placement cannot show ads.
Dev note: AJAX is the problem here.
[Sticky] – stop element
Would be cool to have an option to specify a ‘stop element’ that will prevent a sticky ad from scrolling to the very bottom.
Ad by user role
There is the user capability condition in Pro already, but it would be nice to be able to display ads based on the assigned role as well.
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”
