One of the features that caused confusion since the beginning are the Display Conditions. They control on which pages ads can appear when injected automatically and where not.
My main focus with Advanced Ads 1.7 will be on usability. So it made sense that I start this new release cycle with a rewrite of the Display Conditions interface. It now works like the interface for the Visitor Conditions.
Optimized Display Conditions
This means that you'll only add rules for things that actually matter to your setup instead of seeing all the confusing options that are not necessary.
Here is an example for 3 activated post categories.
Please check your Display Conditions after the update
The new Display Conditions are stored slightly different from the previous ones. The data update automatically happens after the plugin update. However, I would like to ask you to check if everything works as expected afterwards.
I push this update on a Monday so that I have a whole week to help you in case of any misunderstandings or bugs. If you find something, please don't hesitate to reply to this email.
Show ads by Author
Many users asked me how they could share ad revenue with authors by adding the author's own ads to the ad rotation.
With the new Author Display Condition, this is now possible. Just follow this tutorial.
