Categorised Ad Targeting for Multisite


I am using a large selection of your awesome plugins for one of my multisites in order to provide a video gaming related network. Customers are able to choose from a wide range of gaming themed wordpress sites each targeting different games.

I have had a look at (and tried out) a few of your advertising plugins and was wondering if there was any way for them to target a specific site category? For example, only counterstrike adverts on those who use the counterstrike theme?

I have seen a few plugins out there that handle categorising multisites but nothing that allows you to then target those categories with ads. The only solution I can think of is to set up a separate multisite for each game. Which, while it wouldn't be the end of the world, I would probably regret when updates come around.

If you can already do this or you have any ideas on how to best achieve this without leaving your integrated system, I'm all ears! Thanks again.

    Hi Bakala,

    Hope you're well?

    I'm not sure this would be possible without some changes in the plugin code, not sure of any other ads plugins that would dothis either without any custom code. The inpost ads plugin, could possibly be modified to do this,but it would be custom work & there aren't any hooks, so editing the plugin code directly would be required.

    You may need to advertise for a developer to make these changes for you, if you wish to advertise you can use our jobs board here.

    Hope this helps

    Hi Vaughan,

    Thank you for the speedy response. I've been scratching my head for a while now and I agree that custom coding it is probably the only way to do it as multisite doesn't categorize sites. So I guess I would need someone to code the categorisation into the wordpress core and then hook it to the ad system.

    I'll head over to the job board as soon as I've figured out exactly how it needs to function.

    Thanks again!
