I just purchased and installed version 1.0.8 of this addon but for whatever reason i can’t get it to switch to text mode in the editor. Would be grateful for any help / advice, i am running the enigma premium theme, have the elementor page builder installed and some other minor plugins (just fyi).

Is there a way to remove ads for certain user groups yet? This would be a very awesome addition if so.

Hi Joey Gray,

I’m sorry, but not yet. We’ll take this into consideration for future releases.

Will it work with wordads?

6 months 26 days ago

Hi Abhijatya Gupta,

I’m sorry but I’m not familiar with this plugin.

The logic of the “wpForo Ads Manager” plugin is quite simple, it just shows all content that you fill in “Ad Banner Content” (without changing the content).

You can put the same code in a regular WordPress post content using the editor Text mode. If it works, then it should work with Ads Manager too.

Hi Astghik,
Wordsads is not a plugin, these are the ads provided by wordpress . Usually it only needs to add a widget to add an ad on a page. How we can add it with this?

9 months 28 days ago

Hello. Can we use shortcodes instead of image banners in ads? 🙂

9 months 26 days ago

Hi lightform,

Yes, you just need to put the shortcode in Ad content.

Please don’t forget to switch the editor to the text mode.

Hello, Is there any way to monitor the click rates on my advert banners or see what adverts are doing well??

1 year 5 months ago

I’m sorry but there isn’t. This addon is developed only for creating advertising areas in forums, topics and posts. It only displays ads, it doesn’t track them. Addon’t doesn’t have any function for payment, click tracking and other ads specific features. In 99% cases these addon used with 3rd party Ads providers banners, for example “Google AdSense”…. These providers have all necessary tools.

Hi Olaniyan,

1. Can the WpForo Admanager plugin work well with bbpress (very important)

wpForo and bbPress are totally different plugins with different structure. wpForo addons don’t work for bbPress.

2. Can I migrate the totality of my existing bbpress forum into WpForo

Yes, very easy. Just use the Go2wpForo tool. You can find it here:

Can I make certain types of ads to appear in certain topic title keyword? Let’s say I want topic title that has ‘Man’ as a keyword to have men’s underwear ads?

Hi Dickson,
I’m sorry but it’s not possible with current version. We’ll take this under consideration.

Can you disable adverts for certain groups.. so for example visitors see the adverts but subscribers or members view the forum ad-free.

2 years 3 months ago

I’m sorry but not yet. However this is already in our to-do list. We’ll add options to enable/disable ads for certain usergroup.

Hi – has this been done yet? It would be a brilliant feature. Then I could use the ads to upsell paid membership to free users and to let paid users know about current bonuses / events. Thanks! Clare

Hi Seen,
thank you for your interest in wpForo addons. You’ll get addon updates during one year. After one year you should renew your license to get product updates. However you’ll still be able to use the addon version you got for unlimited time.
