WordPress plugin SAM Pro (Free Edition)

Published my new plugin SAM Pro (Free Edition). This plugin is a successor of the Simple Ads Manager plugin. At first glance it might seem that plugin SAM Pro (Free Edition) is a repetition of his ancestor, but it’s not. The new plugin uses a different data structure that allows to increase its performance. In addition, increased security measures from possible hacking attacks. Also solved the problem of statistics and counting clicks.

New plugin is the replacement of the Simple Ads Manager. In other words, the development of Simple Ads Manager will not continue. I am not remove it from the repository only because there are a lot of servers running under PHP 5.2. SAM Pro requires PHP 5.3 and later.

  2. First: Your work is amazing, thanks!!!

    Then, i need to ask you a question about moving from Simple Ads Manager to SAM Free. Is there any help or recomendation to migrate from one to the other.

    I saw this recommendation and i want to change:

    Now this plugin is partially deprecated. If your site works under PHP 5.3 or later version (include PHP 7.0) it is better to use SAM Pro (Free Edition).

    We’re working with php 5.6

    Thanks. Best Regards

  4. Hey, is there an option to display the “real” link also in the source code? I don’t get it but my source code only shows this



    and not the real link. To confirm the implementation of a link by a tool of an advertiser I need it to be also in the source code.

  5. Hi,

    I am trying to migrate my ads from Simple Ads Manager to SAM Pro. When I click the button I get the following message:

    The options of Simple Ads Manager are successfully migrated. Data: Something went wrong. More information in the error log…


    In the error log next to the wp_sampro_ads table I get “Unknown column ‘sa.ad_swf_fallback’ in ‘field list'”


    Please can you tell me how to fix this…

    Thank you

  6. Hey. Issue on placement of advertising. Blocks are placed on the page and articles at the same time. How to make sure that the blocks were only in articles. ???

  7. Hey. The point is that I do so. Put after the article. But in your plugin there is one but. There is written like this – Allow embedding of Ad object after post/page content

    here is the link. Here so it turns out.

    • Мне кажется, что, если Вы будете писать по-русски, то Вам будет легче объяснить мне в чём заключается Ваша проблема… Другими словами – я ничего не понял…

  8. Привет. все просто.

    Хочу чтобы баннеры отражались только в статьях (после материала) но этого достигнуть не возможно. так как баннер появляется и на страницах.

    вот две ссылки:

    на страницу и на материал

    и при попадании на страницу он отображается не понятно как. С БОКУ и не реагирует на выравнивание по середине.

    Самое интересное, что при постановки баннера в середину он стоит именно там и на страницу не попадает.

    как быть?
