FAQ

For detailed information

Now am using version below 1.3, how to update the plugin?

Answer: Yes you can update the plugin, but make sure that you have taken the previous version banners before uploading.

What will happen if I forgot to take the previous version banner backup?

Answer: No problem, Usually you should add the image as banner and it will be available in your media directory or you can get while uploading the banner in newer version. But the banner click url will be added manually. So its better to take click url.

What if I would buy?

Answer: If you would buy, you will get all pro and latest update of random banner. The login details will be send to your after Payment

What if I have already bought and get the next version?

Answer: Yes, you can do the remaining payment through (https://buffercode.com) your plugin page and then you can download from the login details you have already sent.

Too many issues not resolved. Not production grade. Problems: 1. Conflict with Rest API 2. Conflict with other plugins, must deactivate to update other plugins 3. No database management. I have table with over 1,000,000 rows 4. No export to csv support 5. No support for ads on mobile - try to display the same ad on large & mobile. 6. Poor use of session id, causing issues. 7. No clear link customer - campaign - appearance&clicks 8. Poor grade on Google - Layout shift I reported most of the above issues. After 10 days of help - support is gone. Worst of all, some issues were reported 2 years ago! Developer promised to fix it...

This plugin only really works if you're prepared to pay for the premium feature. It also is full of annoying popups that appear after every action telling you to upgrade. This is way too much and for that reason plus the fact that I was unable to do what I needed to do on the basic package, I uninstalled this within an hour of installing. I am now using Simple Banner which is honestly much better - it doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is and that's a very effective rectangular banner plugin that has no annoying popups telling me to upgrade every time I use it.

For one of our client (a magazine) which have a high-level traffic website, statistics cannot be displayed for a range of more 2 ou 3 days due to memory overflow (I guess the whole datas of displays and clicks are loaded in memory instead of beeing grouped and summed by mysql). Waiting for a solution for more than 6 monthes.... Website is on a dedicated with a memory limit of 512M Last thing : wa cannot update plug-ins if we don't deactivate RB pro before. No solution either. Except that, the job is made.

The plugin was just what I needed. There was a small issue when I upgraded but the developer responded instantly and worked until it was fixed, even though it was very late.
