AdSense-Deluxe v0.7 was released tonight and includes support for WordPress 2.0’s (WYSIWYG) Rich Editor as well as updating the documentation and help text to remind people it works equally well for Yahoo!’s Publisher Network.
AdSense-Deluxe is a plugin for WordPress (1.5 or later) which greatly simplies the addition of Google or Yahoo! ads to your WordPress blogs, allowing for use of multiple ad styles and controlling when and where ads are displayed.
I’ll be putting up more information here in the coming days about my experiences using it with WP 2.0, however I’m not likely to be using the Rich Editor on a regular basis. I prefer working with QuickTags and raw HTML, and have seen several people who were active in testing WordPress 2.0 betas write that the Rich Editor (based on TinyMCE) has some flaws. It’s an amazing bit of engineering, but is apparently prone to outputting some sketchy and invalid HTML at times. So if you’re not uncomfortable with HTML codes, I recommend turning off the Rich Editor (goto your user “profile” in WP 2.0 and uncheck that option at the bottom of the page).
Click this link and scroll down the page a bit to get the latest version of Acme Technologies Adsense-Deluxe Plugin for WordPress 2.0 (you want version 0.7 or later). If you have problems or comments, please email them to me or leave comments on this post. Please… read the included ReadMe.txt file if you’ll be installing this for WordPress 2.0 and want support for the Rich Editor. Installation is no longer quite as simple in that scenario.
A quick reminder: please give something back to help support the development of this great plugin by enabling the “Reward Author” checkbox in the Adsense-Deluxe Options page. All this does is make a small percentage (5% or less) of the ads displayed on your blog, use my adsense publisher ID, so if someone happens to click an ad in that case, a few pennies get channeled to my account. It’s greatly appreciated…
Thanks for your interest in the Adsense-Deluxe plugin. -wayne
