AdRotate Pro Update API updated

Behold! The update API for AdRotate Professional is now fully HTTPS (SSL/Encrypted) compatible and will serve links as such, HTTP requests will get redirected to use HTTPS. This makes updates more secure.

Additionally I have fixed the download counter – WooCommerce in all its wisdom reset the downloads since the last update. The number should now be accurate again.

More importantly though, with the updates I ran into a small issue with sending data to your dashboard. This resulted in updates being offered but WordPress not actually knowing what it was updating.

This is now fixed and update notes look more like actual updates now.

As you can see, the update notification is now displayed properly so it’s more clear that there *is* in-fact an update.

Rethinking the responsive wrapper

responsive-adrotate
Based on feedback and a whole lot of confused complaints I’m redoing the responsive wrapper for groups once again.
Apparently people don’t like change… Who was I to think otherwise. Silly.
If you have comments, ideas or actual suggestions as to how to handle the wrapper in a more usable way – Let me know below.

Current

- I’m currently moving the size setting back to be required on Dynamic and Block mode only (as the dashboard setting already implies).
- I’m shifting some classes around so responsive adverts doesn’t require a group perse
- Trying to make the CSS lighter (could use some tips here…)

I’d ask for beta testers but we all know you’re just gonna take the code and disappear, so I’ll save us the trouble. Just leave your comments below.
Each idea, rant or suggestion is valued and all comments are welcome – More input means better features.
