      @fritz raddatz : you can upload different types of banner in the setting page. So that each time page loads the different banner will display.. that mean some time we have multiply banner to show in a single slot at that time we can use this random banner

    Olá, atualmente uso wp-bannerize, mas ele deixou de fazer uma função importante que é a rotação dos banners, Então em pesquisas gostei deste plugin RAndonômico, instalei mas não consigo colocar os banners, é necessário alguma configuração? ele carrega o arquivo eu salvo e não aparece nada…. Eu uso o tema forester, gostaria muito de resolver!!!!!
    Outro detalhe…. usou leiga no assunto rsrsrs.

    I love your plug-in, and when I upload images to it, it works great, but my title does not show when I mouse-over the image. Is there a way to make that work? I don’t have the widget active on my home page, just the posts and other pages. you can see an example here. Please let me know if its possible to have the title show upon mouse-over.

      @Justin: Thanks for your reply. May I know where you have given the title for the banner images. Because this plugin doesn’t have title option for the banner images.

    How do we specify what the width will be? It seems to always revert to one size no matter what size I upload…

    • vinoth May 7, 2014 at 6:16 pm // Reply //

      @Jay : Sorry friend at present, there is no option to add flexible width and height for this plugin. Because each ads may be in different size like 300×250 or 200×600 etc. that’s why there is not option in ads size flexibility. May be in next release let me update with flexible size for each ads.

    I put only 2 banners in, and it seems to show the first banner a lot more.
    only one in around 10 refreshes the other banner is shown,
    Is it because I only put 2? how can I make the ratio more equal?

    • vinoth July 2, 2014 at 9:06 pm // Reply //

      Hi Dana.

      Yes because of only two banners. The logic is simple. Each time page loads the php function generate a random number for the total number of banners uploaded. for example if you added two banners means it will generate number between 1 or 2. So the possibility is high of getting the same number for two banners upload. Try with more than 5 banners, then you can find the difference and effectiveness of random banner generate.

    Hi, i’m new for wordpress, and i loved your plugin. But i have two doubts: first: is there a possibility of add a number of banners in one place of the page and another number in other place? e.g.: 4 banners on the left side and 5 for the right bar?
    Second: is there a possibility of adding more than 10 banners? if yes, how can i do it?

    Thanks a lot, and again, it’s a great plugin.

    Hello, Is there a function to see how many clicks each banner ad received? And can I also put a banner ad at the header (top) of my blog? Thanks, Galia

    Hi, it seems on first glance that the banner rotation plugin cannot load affiliate banners which is not a standard url.

    hi vinoth great plugin, but why my banner canot be directly click to external website?it always give the page/page

    Hello, this plugin is VERY good and useful. BUT: plugin currently displays the same set of ad banner no matter where the widget is placed in a website.

    It would be great if the plugin could be made to have different set of banner for each side bar position.

    Example: Random Banner 1 (image T1 – image T10)
    Random Banner 2 (image G1 – image G10
    Random Banner 3 (image E1 – image E10)
    Random Banner 100 (image W1 – image W10)

    So that on the same page, one can have different Random Banner widgets all with their different sets of ads.

    With this, this simple to use widget would be the BEST.

    Hope this would be done in the next version.
