    Hi Ruchi,

    First of all, thanks for this such nice post. But I’m wondering if Adrotate Plugin can help to put the relevant banner based on the post topic.

    I’ve a personal blog which discus a variety of topic. For example: one of my post title is covering the lose weight topic. I want the lose weight affiliate products show when people read that post. Which means the affiliate products won’t show on other post that not relevant to that post. Is it possible to have that plugin? Kindly appreciate if can help me.

    Best regard,

    Hi. I’d like to use this plugin, but I cannot get it do what I need. I created 4 adverts (a, b, c, d) in one group.

    When I display that group on the blog, it just displays one of the ads, then on refresh displays another ad, then on refresh a different ad again.

    I want to to display all 4 e.g. a – b – c – d and on refresh display b – d – a – c
    So all 4 should display at all times, but the order should change. Can ad rotate do this?

    Hi Everyone,

    This is a nice plugin but, I don’t think it does what I want.
    My theme comes with banners integrated but, there is no way to manage them without editing the theme files. I need that they constantly rotate.

    Does anyone know a good plugin that will rotate the existing banners in my theme, without adding new widgets or editing theme files every time.

    I would like to stick with the banner positions my theme delivers and rotate them at the same time.

    Any help is highly appreciated – Thanks all.
