Another upgrade for Who Sees Ads, everybody's favorite ad management plugin. This version is not a trivial bug fix but do contains a few interesting stuff for everybody.
- Widget support! Thanks to the excellent Denis de Bernardy's suggestions and code, widget aware themes can now fully manage object positioning in their sidebars. A widget is created for each ad you'd create in the plugin.
- Better WP-Cache support. Yet another suggestion from Denis, the plugin simply echoes results within a WP-Cache comment wrapper that tell WP-Cache to make sure Who Sees Ads' output is always dynamic and never pulled from the cache. One of those "how on Earth did I manage not to think about this by myself" moments :)
- Views per visitor: a new display rule, suggested and coded by Paula from EZ Expert Website Tools, allows to define how many time each visitor should see something. This will be great for nags such as "Subscribe to my feed", which you obviously don't want to pester your regular readers with.
- Personal advanced settings. Remember my-hacks.php from old WordPress versions? Who Sees Ads now has a my_options.php file which can contain a few stuff to override default behaviors: search engine list, disabling widgets, and more. For advanced users only.
- A few small bugfixes which should fix possible problems with ShittyMCE Editor
This should be the last update for a while, except of course in case of a major breakage or trivial bug. I think the plugin has grown to something very powerful and very mature, in particular thanks to wonderful feedback and suggestions from users and readers. I'm quite proud of what it has become now, especially this kick ass user interface :)
So, what's next now ? I want to polish my next plugin, almost ready for release. Don't want to say too much yet, but I think it has the potential for becoming my most popular plugin :)
