With my focus on other projects for the past 2 months there hasn’t been done much in terms of development.
Once I get settled in on my workspace and figure out how to sync files and stuff from home to work and back without it being an annoying hassle I can spend more time on AdRotate again.
It seems that Dropbox is the only viable option but I’d prefer to keep things on a server I control and not something “public” like dropbox. Suggestions welcome.
With the new office/workspace I am now able to receive customers for a chat or something. So if you’re in the Amsterdam area (Netherlands, Europe) some time. Let me know.
The next big thing
I’ve squeezed in a few hours of development here and there. But larger additions are a bit on the back burner until I can focus better. The next big thing is probably the advertiser experience. Finally make some effort into creating a front-end dashboard or improving the messaging system or some such. Perhaps even take things head on and create the fabled Paypal gateway… I haven’t really decided yet.
Earlier this year I made a sort of deal with Broadstreet Ads for a simple partnership. Their button has been on the AdRotate Dashboard for almost 7 months. As usual with agreements like these expectations were high. Promises made. With overall not so great results. So that will go away and make room for the new clickable tags. You can see these already in AdRotate Pro 3.8.11. If you have great and useful ideas for more such tags. Let me know.
AdRotate in your language
2 years ago people we’re going mad that AdRotate didn’t support Gettext. Fine. So I’ve added support for it. Now 2 years later and barely anybody cares.
Keeping support in Gettext is troublesome to say the least yet no one seems to use it. Or – Nobody sent in their translations for me to include with the plugin.
If you’ve made a translation or are interested to do so you can post your files on the Internationalization forum. Make a thread for your language if there isn’t one already and link your files there. Be sure to include both the PO and MO files and note which version of AdRotate you made it for. Good translations will be included in the download for both AdRotate Pro and Free.
Maybe I’m doing something wrong. But I’m not sure what. If you have ideas. Let me know. Perhaps all translators need to all add me on Skype or something. I don’t know…
