With the ongoing flurry of questions about WordPress multisite I’ve spent the last week or so figuring out how multisite actually works and am now testing AdRotate and AdRotate Pro with Multisite.
The support for Multisite will be full featured with each instance having it’s own separate data-set and settings – Just as it should be. Due to good coding practise AdRotate was mostly compatible already, with the exception of Network Activated setups. This will be added in the next version.
On top of that, a nasty flaw with clicktracking was discovered by a few users. This has been fixed with all new code for Dynamic groups to make Dynamic groups more efficient but also compatible with clicktracking – Clicks weren’t always recorded for dynamic groups. These patches have been tested over the past 2 weeks with great success on various users sites who were kind enough to give me access their servers to try and figure this out.
Multisite for AdRotate Pro
With the coming addition for Multisite a few things have to change for the AdRotate Pro licenses, too.
For Single, Duo and Multi licenses not much will change other than that it’s now officially supported on Multisite instances.
The developer License will also support network activation and can be activated on unlimited networks and blogs within that network. With this expanded functionality and the included freedoms in the license the price will be raised to €299 (up from €199).
All existing Developer licenses will have the benefits of the renewed Developer options at no extra cost.
To make things accessible for network administrators, a new mid-tier license will be introduced specifically for Multisite setups. This license can be used on 1 network and unlimited blogs within that network. Every user will have the full set of features of AdRotate Pro at his/her disposal. However, you yourself are responsible for supporting the individual blogs. The ticket support option will be hidden from your users. The price for this license will be €199.
This option is also interesting for network admins who have all their sites in one network and plan to use AdRotate Pro on 6 or more blogs in that network.
The new licenses are laid out on the AdRotate Pro page.
The network license will be available soon.
Sale! sale! sale!
Both the Developer and Network license will be on sale from March 10th throughout 31st of March 2014 for a special introduction price. Check out the AdRotate Pro store.
