Ads in Advanced Ads are based on WordPress custom post types. They are disabled to output public URLs.

If you have a good reason to make the ads public on dedicated URLs, then you can use the advanced-ads-post-type-params hook.

The following code snippet would make ads available under[AD_SLUG]/.

 * Allow to query an ad through a public URL like
 * Re-save Settings > Permalinks to refresh the permalinks cache after adding the code
 * For fine-tuning the behavior see
add_filter( 'advanced-ads-post-type-params', function( $post_type_params ) {
   $post_type_params['public'] = true;
   $post_type_params['rewrite'] = true;
   $post_type_params['query_var'] = true;
   return $post_type_params;
} );Code language: PHP (php)

Don’t forget to flush the permalink cache by re-saving Settings > Permalinks.

A public ad URL would use your WordPress theme to output the ad’s content. You could create a custom template file if you only want to load the ad content.
