On this page and underlying articles, linked at the left hand side, I will use several terms and names.
AdRotate is managed from the Dashboard.
You, the user of AdRotate, are the publisher. You publish ads.
People/entities advertising on your site are advertisers (this includes Google Adsense and such like).
People visiting your website are visitors. Who click adverts or ads.
Adverts will get impressions from being displayed and clicks from being clicked.

Common stuff that may happen
Scrollbars in blocks
Answer: This happens if your ads are overflowing the allotted space. This means that you need to re-do the sizing of your ads. Perhaps remove or lessen the margin on them. Make the sidebar wider (or which ever area). Or use smaller ads all-together.
Why do I get this error when I want to activate AdRotate?
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '&', expecting T_VARIABLE or '$' in /path/to/www/example.com/wp-content/plugins/adrotate/adrotate-manage.php on line 136
Answer: Upgrade your server to use PHP5. Contact your webhost for more information.
I’m getting errors about duplicate entries in the stats or the tracker table!
Answer: This means your database is full and needs to be “upgraded”. More on the how and why in this article!
Why do my ads not rotate when I reload the page?
Answer: In most cases you have a cache plugin active. WP-Super Cache or something similar. AdRotate uses a static ad which means the ad will also be cached. Therefor, AdRotate is not (yet?) compatible with any caching plugins.
