First: Turn off any ad blockers you might have installed. They prevent ads from appearing!

Other than that, there aren't any special instructions for installing this plug-in. Once installed, go to Appearance -> Widgets, and look for the "Ad Widget" widgets!

You can also go to Settings -> Ad Widget for a video demo on how to use it.

Also, think about trying Selfie.

The Ad Widget is a very simple plugin. If you are having trouble loading ads on your site, please make sure that:

  • You do not have an ad blocker installed (you would be amazed how often this happens). Disable it and refresh the page a few times to see if the ad appears.
  • You don't have CSS in your theme which is hiding images (rare, but it happens)

If you have any other trouble, email - try to avoid the Wordpress support forums because they're awful.
