There are 2 ways to manage your banner images. You can use FTP and store all images in a special folder for banners or use the WordPress Media Manager.
The preferred method is using FTP. This keeps your banners completely separate from other media. The easier way is to use the Media Manager.
Using the Media Manager
AdRotate makes use of the WordPress Media Manager to include images if you want. The green arrow in the above screenshot.
This is the fastest and easiest method of uploading and managing your banner images. Because the banners are mixed in with all other media files it may be a bit messy to oversee what’s what.
For your convenience the Media Manager has been altered a little bit so it doesn’t show any options or items you can’t use. Just select the image and click “Select Banner” to populate the banner image field in AdRotate.
Use your favorite FTP client and upload the images to the ‘wp-content/banners/’ folder. AdRotate will automatically pick up on the images and show them in the drop down menu pictured above (Blue arrow).
It’s advised to use a simple and clear naming convention for your ads. This helps you determine which ad goes where and who it belongs to.
Accepted file types are common images like jpg, png, bmp and gif. Additionally you can store SWF and Flv files here.
Moving your banners folder
You may decide to move the banners folder elsewhere. Simply use your FTP client to make a new folder somewhere within your webspace and change the path in AdRotate Settings.
