Especially among “related content” ads, ad grids with multiple ad units bundled in a block are popular. With the Ad Grids feature in Advanced Ads Pro, you can create such ad blocks from a group by yourself.

Ad Grid Options
You can find the ad grid options through Advanced Ads > Groups after switching the group type to “Grid”.
Just switch the group type to “Grid” to create a grid output. The rest of the options will appear then.
Select the number of columns and rows the grid should have. In our example, the grid has a dimension of 4 x 2 ads, so 8 ad units will be visible. Ensure that your ad group contains enough ads.
If more adverts are in the group, Advanced Ads will not load the rest into the grid.
The inner margin is the margin between ads, the outer ads, and the ad block’s border. It is given in percentage to be able to adjust dynamically to your layout.
Especially on responsive layouts, the container in which Advanced Ads placed the ad grid can become very small. If you define a column’s minimum width, you ensure they won’t become too small to interact with. When the minimum width is reached, Advanced Ads will apply a line break and display the elements below each other.
Please be aware that usually, only images can adjust to dynamically sized ad grids. You should check your layout with different browser sizes and might need to make adjustments using our Responsive add-on to display only ads that fit the screen.
This option allows adjusting the grid on smaller devices to show a single column in full width and not multiple columns squeezed next to each other.
Check this option if you want to load the ads in random order or use the ad weights to sort them. Using different ad weights, those ads with the highest ad weight will show up at the end and not at the beginning.
You can find a prepared ad setup for ads in a grid on our ad templates page and import it to your site in a few clicks.
