After a banner expires… is there a way to renew the banner add? I tried to change the exp date to more days… but it stays expired? are you able to renew the ad… or do I need to re enter the ad as a new ad?

The best way is to create new banner, but you can update number of days.

Some question. 1. How many banner can be accept on each slot? 2. Can the slot set to have maximum banner to accept? 3. Can you add fb style ads (image, url, ads description)

4. Can you add manual payment option (manually accept/reject on backend)?

1,2) As admin you can set max number of banners per slot. 3,4) Unfortunately, there is no such feature.

Hi, I cant find in the listing anywhere. What version is the plugin now? I have 2.36 and it is throwing some errors. Would an update help?

Latest version is 2.39.

hi, I am running a directory site and wonder if you plugin can somehow identify a pay listing and not show ad on the detail view page?

There is no such features. Plugin display banners in places where you put them.

Hi halfdata,

The banner manager seems to be blocked now by adblockers, even on your demo page it is blocked (see screenshot).


I use google chrome and ad blocker extension. Please check and let me know how to go around this.


Thanks for your reply. Can you provide an estimate for your next update? I would like to ask you and see if you can integrate Stripe payment gateway into it. I would pay extra for that.

Hi. Sorry for delay. I’, currently working under update. Unfortunately, I can’t tell exactly when it will be released.

Hi halfdata, do you have an update on this?

having same issue as goldstrikn. Also is there a reason why you cant make it so we can setup our own sub directory. having banner in it means we get blocked more.

Hi. Thanks for info. Seems AdBlock blocks all URLs that contain keyword “wp-banner”. It’s time to change it. :-) I’ll do it in next release.

hi, I would like to know if your plugin can be used to create banners with code to be inserted in other sites. I explain better, I have a portal and I would like to create banners, then I would like through a code to allow other portals to have the same banner that I have in my site to have links to products, is it possible?

Hi. You can banners as iframe.

you have a weird error on line 2800 wp-banners.php where php is showing up on the front end code. Edit. It is just because you use .load instead of .on(load

I assume this is since WordPress still uses old js. Maybe want to update this anyway.

Would you please update your payment providers to use Stripe??

Thanks for idea. I’ll include it into todo list.

Hi halfdata, Do you have an update coming up? it’s been several months, since the issue with popup blockers stop showing the banners was mentioned to you.

I hope that you will come up with the update very soon.

Please advise

Thank you.

Hi halfdata, I wonder if you’re closer to update this plugin, as adblockers are blocking elements and not showing up the banners.

It’s been over 7 months (2019) that it was notified to you, but still no update :( Please let me know if you plan to update this, or is this plugin not going to be updated at all.

Thank you.

Sad to see this plugin die. Really good but needs some updating…

If I may make some suggestions for your upcoming update:

- Change your “classes” to something less obvious. Instead of using banner sizes for your css classes, use something random.

- Change your iframe (?wpbanners) string. It would be best to allow site owner to choose a name, so they can decide what is best.

Thanks for listening.

Thanks for your ideas. I appreciate them.

You are very welcome. Thanks for considering them.

Could you please direct me to directions for creating text style banner like you show at

I have never seen that option and did not know it even existed.

Opps, my bad. See that it is standalone PHP script.

Great update… Thank. But ads don’t “display on mobile devices !

Ok, works fine. It was a cache issue.

Please how to change language ? i’ve create a halfdata-green-box.pot file and halfdata-green-box-fr_FR.po and files but dont works.

Files must be and lebox-fr_FR.po and located in languages folder.

Great job @halfdata! The updated version rocks.

If I make a suggestion: When ad placeholder is placed on remote site (any site for that matter), have option to open in new window.

You rock!

When going to page with payment form, the default 7 days is highlighted but with no price. You have to click on another option then back to 7 days to get price to appear. Noticed this error in dev console:

Uncaught ReferenceError: lebox_calc is not defined at (index):9

Hi. 1. Thanks for your suggestion. I’ll include your idea into todo list. 2. Thanks for letting me know. I’ll include the fix today-tomorrow. For now you can embed the payment form using HTML-code. It won’t have such problem.

Thanks for the tip about HTML code. Glad I could help in small way :)


This new update is great, and good looking form. I encountered 2 things that hopeufully you can assist.

1) Stripe test mode is not working. The transactions do go through because in Stripe I can see it and it status is always 200 OK, it shows the details. But, it fails the result on my website. It always comes with the email as payment not completed and it shows error as “Invalid Signature”. I checked my keys and signature and they are correct. Please test it on your end.

2) I want to change through theme css editor the blank banner color, but it doesn’t seem to take it. I edited .lebox-default-placeholder with my color scheme, but it didn’t take it. can you let me know how to do it?

Thank you.


Thanks for your reply, but It still doesn’t work, I checked and I indeed have the correct signing secret. I don’t know what to do. Can you help?


Hi. Please extend support period, provide access to wp dashbord and screenshots from Stripe containing api keys, and webhook parameters including signing secret.

Hi halfdata,

Thanks for helping me out. I just purchased the extended support for it. I’ll provide my website credentials through your profile page.

Thanks again.

Im getting this error when i try to upload an image “Image was not uploaded properly.” go to my site an check it out

I’ve checked your URL – everything works perfectly. Seems you use some kind of adblocker in your browser. Never use keywords like “ads”, “advertise”, “advertisement”, your URLs. AdBlockers don’t like such URLs and block them. ;-)

I understand but the problem was I was using 7.2 php and when I changed it to 7.3 php everything worked fine. Thanks!

In this case your php 7.2 was not configured properly and didn’t allow to upload files. ;-)

It seems this plugin is not compatible with Bimber theme.

Please extend support period, provide access to WP dashboard and explain how to see the problem. I’ll check.

Im not asking for support, just letting you know this plugin is not compatible with that theme, anyone who actives this pluging on that theme will see the website in mobile version all the time. ;)

Hi I have an AMP supported website and was wandering if your plugin does support AMP pages

Hi. This is WordPress plugin. It works with WordPress. Unfortunately, I’m not familiar with AMP, so I can’t answer your question.

I have a problem, the banner show only when i’m connect to wordpress, any idea about this ?

Check that you don’t have JS errors on your site when you are logged out.
