Front End Functionality
The best way to describe how the plugin works is to show live example. Look at the top of “Live Preview” website or at screenshot below. Do you see hyper-linked string inside of color (yellow) rectangle? This is Simple String. Your visitors/advertisers can publish their own ad string there.
Now click at the small gray link “Publish your link here for X.XX USD ” at the bottom right corner of the box. You will be redirected to page for advertisers (view screenshot below). On this page you can fill up simple form and click “Continue” button. If everything is OK, system asks you to confirm provided information and redirects to PayPal, AlertPay or InterKassa to complete the payment. After that your ad string will be included into rotation.
In case of several strings, every time plugin select one of them randomly. During the day all ad strings are displayed approximately the same number of times. Your ad string will be shown as many times as you purchased. Of course, if somebody cheats and clicks “refresh” button many times the plugin doesn’t count them as separate shows. At the end you get statistics about your ad string by e-mail (if you set one during publishing the string).

2. Click left side menu “Simple String >>> Settings” and do required settings. Set your PayPal ID, AlertPay E-mail, InterKassa parameters, price, minimum number of shows, e-mail templates, etc. Please look at the screenshot below to see what kind of settings you can do there.

The first shortcode will be replaced by sign up form for advertiser. The second shortcode will be replaced by active ad strings stats.
