2 new Placements and Video Tutorials

View this email in your browser
Video tutorials, 2 new placements and an ad blocker countermeasure – a lot did happen in the last 2 weeks.

With the last updates I implemented some of your feature request. An important one was to not inject ads into elements like tables or image descriptions in the content. The complete rewrite of the content injection led to some issues that I believe are now completely solved.

The biggest news and coolest features I just added where two placements in Advanced Ads Pro. Ads on archive pages and choosing any ad position with just a mouse click.

Ads between posts on archive pages

The "Post Lists" placement allows you to inject ads between posts on any kind of post list, like the home page or category pages.

I have made a short video for you to check it out.

Ads on any position in your theme

The new Custom Position placement allows you to place an ad anywhere in your theme just by selecting the position in the frontend – no coding needed.

Take a look at this video to learn more.

Btw., the sidebar placements included in the Sticky Add-On now also make use of the frontend picker.

Video Tutorials + Poll

The biggest request I get is the one for video tutorials. Therefore I finally started to create some. You can find them through the manual or feature list.

To focus on the important tutorials, I created a poll and would kindly ask you to let me know for which feature set you would like to see videos instead of just reading text.

AdBlocker countermeasure

Advanced Ads was recently honored by having it's widget being blocked completely by some ad blockers. This caused even non obstrusive ads or non-ad content to be blocked as well.

There are different opinions about ad blocking, but disabling a widget without knowing what is inside is not fair. So I decided to let you guys change the prefix of the ad widget and other elements in general in order to not get hit by ad blockers.

Just go to Advanced Ads > Settings and find the ID Prefix option. Please read the warnings there as well before saving the settings.

Support from within your site

I added another way to contact me directly: a dedicated Support page in the Advanced Ads menu in your WordPress dashboard. You can use it to search the manual or to send me an email.

As always, you can just reply to this email in order to get in contact with me as well.
