 * Add domain to the path that is checked for the URL Parameters condition when the ad is delivered using a placement.
add_filter( 'advanced-ads-ad-select-args', function( $args ){
	// Add referrer if this is an ajax placement
	if ( isset( $args['url_parameter'] ) && $args['method'] === Advanced_Ads_Select::PLACEMENT && isset( $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] ) && '' !== $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] ) {
		$args['url_parameter'] = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] . $args['url_parameter'];
