Ad Rotator is a simple WordPress widget to display random HTML code
from a given group of HTML-chunks separated with <!--more-->
on sidebar. Basically it shows different HTML every time you requesting
page. There are infinite number of instances of this widget may exist.

Migrating from AdRotator plugin

plugin is a simple file-based ad rotation solution. It was developed by
Angsuman Chakraborty long time ago, but occasionally we have the same
plugin names from WordPress’ point of view. If you are using this plugin,
you may click upgrade link from your Plugins page and it being replaced
with Ad Rotator widget.

So now you have two ways to solve the problem 'getad()' function is undefined:
1. you can download AdRotator and ignore upgrade notices, or
2. you can upgrade your theme to use Ad Rotator Widget.

Here is how to upgrade your theme. Find all occurrences of getad function,
and replace them with something like this:

  'name' => 'ad-area',
  'id' => 'ad-area',
  'before_widget' => '',
  'after_widget' => '',
  'before_title' => '',
  'after_title' => ''

Make sure you’ve replaced ad-area with the name suitable for you. Also
you can specify additional options, like before_title and after_title.

Then open the Appearence/Widgets page in Site Admin and configure
Ad Rotator widget instances for your advertisements area. Just take into
account, that in files for AdRotator ads are separated with new line
character (ie each line means separate ad), but in Ad Rotator widget
you should separate you blocks with <!--more--> (so each of them
may contain more then one line.)

Anyways, sorry for onfusion, I did not want to heat on you.
