Ad Widget In Use
Ad Widget Options

If you’d ever wanted to show ads on your WordPress or WordPress MU blog via a widget, and apply simple rules to determine who sees them, then this is your plugin.

It’s designed to work as simply as possible – as multiple widgets so that you don’t need to edit any code or fiddle with any settings.

Simply place the widget where you’d like it to sit, choose the rule that you want to apply (for example, show this ad only to search engine visitors), paste in your ad code and you are away!

The rules available are:

  • User isn’t logged in
  • User hasn’t commented before
  • User arrived via a search engine
  • User arrived via a link
  • User is using Internet Explorer


Enjoy, and let your users enjoy simple advertising options!
