Thanks to a lot of very positive feedback and very interesting suggestions, I've updated the uberawesome Who Sees Ads plugin with even more uberawesome features and improvements.

Who Sees Ads : new display rules

New Display Rules

Who Sees Ads lets you decide under which circumstances a visitor will see an ad (or anything like a greeting, text, a "Subscribe to my feed" banner, etc). As of version 1.2, the conditions that can trigger content to display or not are:

  • If Visitor comes from a search engine, display / don't display
  • If Visitor is a regular reader, display / don't display
  • If Post is older than XX days, display / don't display
  • If Visitor is logged in, display / don't display
  • If Date is between specified date interval, display / don't display
  • If Ad has been viewed less than XX times, display / don't display
  • If All previous conditions fail, try another context
  • If Any condition, display / don't display
  • If some PHP code, display / don't display

I've also gathered a few example display rules to help you create simple, complex or totally crazy rules.

    One word: awesome. This is an amazing plugin, thank you so much!

    Perhaps I just don't understand the part about context. Am I to copy the entire code that generates the ad into the Ad Code box? (That is what I've been doing). Is this working with Wordpres 2.2.3? With widgets?


  3. Ozh says:

    Greg » yes, obviously the "Ad code" textarea is for the ad code (for example, the javascript for Adsense). Yes, it works on 2.2.3. It doesn't care if your blog uses widgets or not, the plugin does not use widgets. If your context rule seems to fail, it's probably because you screwed the display rules. When an ad is not displayed, an HTML comment is printed in the page so you can't see why it didn't display (ad not found, display rules tell not to display, etc…)
