Setting up a WordPress Ad Campaign

To view campaign options, click on Create new Campaign, or click the name of one of your existing campaigns, which are listed under the Campaigns tab. Here’s what you will see:
Campaign Settings Setting up a WordPress Ad Campaign banner server plugin. Features include custom fields, descriptive settings and functional settings.
Campaign Settings consist of descriptive settings (Title and Notes) and functional settings. First, enter the campaign title. The other fields, unless specified, will instead use default values.
Here are some of the options explained:

  • Campaign Weight– Determine the campaign importance and priority in relation to all other campaigns to determine how often it should appear.
  • Approved domains– Add a list of domains from which banners can be requested and served. Leaving this list empty will allow all Ad Changer clients to request the banners randomly without defined preferences.
  • Custom JavaScript– field is designed to add custom JS codes into the page where the campaign ads are being displayed. The JavaScript code executes immediately, so it hook into the banner click, show modal, show alert, call AJAX etc.

Managing Campaign Banners

  • Campaign type
  • Cloud Storage– Select if you wish to use cloud hosting for storing all your banner images. Insert URL received from your cloud storage provider. Once this option is chosen, you can manually upload and link the files to your website from the cloud.
  • Campaign Images– Upload images and define their name, title, alt, target url, and weight attributes. Click on add variations to insert different sizes for the displaying the banner on mobile devices, or have them resized automatically by selecting the option in the general server settings.

AdSense Support

In the CM Ad Changer Server Pro version 1.2.5 we’ve introduced Google AdSense support.
Now instead of displaying banners you can provide your AdSense publisher ID and the ID of your AdSense advertisement to be displayed.
Currently only the 300×250 ads are supported but we’re planning to develop the AdSense support in future releases.
