Overview


Ads EZ is a clever program to serve your ads to multiple web sites. It can work as standalone web application or as a WordPress plugin. Using Ads EZ, you can centralize your banner ads in one location, and use simple shortcodes to place them on your blog pages, or generate invocation codes to place them on any other web sites or blogs. In the Pro version, you can even serve HTML ads with the same shortcode and invocation code mechanism.

Sunset Edition
This update of the plugin is the last publicly released version. We do not expect to make any serious changes or add new features to it from now on.

We may not always be able to provide prompt support for this plugin on the WordPress.org forums. If you would like to have professional support or extra/custom features, consider buying the Pro version.

Do you have multiple websites which you monetize using advertising? If so, this personal ad server may be the right tool for you. Ads EZ makes it easy for you to set up an optimized ad server that can service your websites. Aiming at simplicity, Ads EZ does away with all the complicated zone and expiry settings. All you have to do is to collect your banners in a folder, upload them and specify their targets using a simple and intuitive interface.

Features

  • Fully Automated Setup: Ads EZ gets you started within two minutes, rather than hours and days.
  • Modern Admin Interface: Ads EZ sports a modern and beautiful admin interface based on the twitter bootstrap framework. Fully responsive, with editable tables to set up and modify your ads.
  • Admin Interface Tour: A slick tour will take you around the admin page and familiarize you with its features.
  • Generous Help for Admin: Whenever you need help, the information and hint is only a click away in Ads EZ. (In fact, it is only a mouseover away.)
  • No Coding Required: Ads EZ is written for creative people who have some ads in the form of banners or ad codes. So it doesn’t call for any deep computing knowledge. The most you will have to do is perhaps to cut and paste some ad code.
  • Batch Processing: Ads EZ makes it a cinch to get your existing banners into your database through an intuitive batch processing.
  • Memory Caching: Ads EZ uses memory caching where available so that the database access is minimized. Caching can tremendously improve performance of busy sites.
  • Robust Security: Unbreakable authentication (using hash and salt), impervious to SQL injection etc.
  • Data Validation: Client-side and server-side data validation to minimize data errors.

Ads EZ is available as a freely distributed lite version and a Pro version, which adds a ton of extra features.

Pro Features

If the following features are important to you, consider buying the Pro version.

  • Cache Visualization and Management: You can see detailed cache statics in the Pro version, and options to set the cache expiry, and to manually clear it, if needed.
  • CDN Support: Put your static files, such as your banners, on a Content Delivery Network (CDN) for improved performance.
  • In-Browser Banner Uploads: The Pro version lets you upload multiple banners (through drag and drop) and enter their meta data. In the lite version, you would manually upload the banners to your server and run a batch to do it.
  • Statistics and Charts: The Pro version can optionally collect statistics about your ad serving and present you with detailed performance reports and charts, including geolocation.
  • Category Management: In the Pro version, you can have as many ad categories as you want. The lite version comes with three categories, and adding more would require direct database manipulation.
  • HTML Ads: The Pro version allows you to store and serve HTML and JavaScript ads such as AdSense and other providers. The lite version is limited to banner ads.
  • OpenX Replacement: Ads EZ is designed to be drop-in replacement for OpenX. In the Pro, you can generate the .htaccess directives that will make your Ads EZ app act like your OpenX server to the world.
