The functionality of this plugin is good, and it's very easy to work with. I would highly recommend it and even purchase the Pro version if it wasn't for a couple of things: 1. When you install Adrotate free it places a menu item in your left menu. Fine. But also a menu item called "Feedback" which doesnt do anything. VERY annoying. 2. Adrotate Free places an advertisement in your WordPress dashboard which is persistent. You can't close it. VERY annoying and makes me NOT want to buy the Pro version. 3. Statistics is a little too light. You can't for instance filter ads based on the groups they are in. Meaning if you have a lot of ads in various groups, you can't se stats for ads just in one group. 4. You can sort ads based on date, shows, and clicks. But not on the column CTR, meaning I really can't sort ads based on best performers. 5. There's no import function. I can export ads to CSV, but not import. So if I want to copy my 200 ads from one site to another, there's no easy way to do that.

Having a lot of trouble with this plugin. I cannot add banner images from word press media because when I click on the select banner button, nothing happens. It's as if the button function has been disabled also I tried uploading media to the banner folder for this plugin and the button is greyed out and cannot be clicked. I've given up with it.

This is a great plugin. I am using it for long. However after I updated it today, it is not allowing me to add any New Ads. It shows following message... There was an error loading the page. Please try again by reloading the page via the menu on the left. If the issue persists please seek help at ajdg.solutions/forums/forum/adrotate-for-wordpress/ I am disappointed to see my favorite plugin behaving this way....

I've used the product for years in the free version & recently upgraded to the paid version. Both are absolutely excellent. It does what it says it will do. The interface is easy & intuitive. The reporting is great. Really, I wish every plug in was of this quality. But beyond that… I had a minor issue with the upgrade that was entirely & completely my fault — I just missed something… I contacted tech support & Arnan got back to me within hours with exactly the answer I needed clearly & very politely (not saying I was an idiot for not seeing it myself, although I was). This is the kind of tech support we mostly can only dream of — thank you Arman for the great produce & great service.
