  • Creating an individual ad in the WordPress admin uses a standard Add Post interface. Create your ad, assign it to groups, apply settings, and publish.
  • Ad Groups are WordPress taxonomies and are used to display a group of ads together.
  • Placements allow you to insert ads or groups automatically without implementing shortcodes, template tags, or blocks.
  • Detailed reports are generated if local tracking is enabled. Local tracking is available in Ad Commander core (free download).
  • Reports can be displayed in line or bar graphs, and filtered by ads and time period.
  • Settings allow you to control some Ad Commander options from one central location.

Does Ad Commander work with page caching?

Ad Commander Pro offers three rendering methods: Server-side rendering, Client-side rendering, and Smart (combination) rendering. Client-side and Smart rendering are designed to work with page caching and all visitor targeting methods.

Ad Commander core only supports server-side rendering. Many caching plugins do offer fragmented caching. This could be used to make Ad Commander’s server-side rendering compatible with page caching. The implementation of fragmented caching varies between caching plugins and is not directly supported by Ad Commander, but may be possible to implement with developer assistance.

Do I need to edit my theme to insert ads?

No! Ads and groups can be inserted into your site using automatic placements or shortcodes.

Can I manually insert ads and groups into my site or theme files?

Yes! Individual shortcodes or PHP template tags can sometimes be a better solution than automatic placements, depending on your specific site layout and circumstances. Both are available for ads and groups.

Will Ad Commander work with my ad network?

Ad Commander supports inserting any script code using Text/Script ad types. These ads can be inserted within your site or placed in the site head or body using automatic placements. The flexibility of this approach should allow any ad network to be used on your site. If you have trouble with a specific ad network, please reach out to support for help.

Can Ad Commander require consent before displaying ads?

Yes. Ad Commander does not create consent banners but can monitor a cookie and display ads after it exists.

The cookie name and value are unique to your consent management system and are specified in Ad Commander’s settings. After your visitor accepts, ads will display as long as the consent cookie exists.

Consent management works best with client-side or smart rendering available in Ad Commander Pro. This feature will also work with server-side rendering, but there are some caveats (see documentation).

What versions of PHP is Ad Commander compatible with?

Ad Commander and Ad Commander Pro are tested on PHP 7.4 – PHP 8.1. Support for PHP 8.2 is currently in beta but has no known issues at this time.
