Seven days without response for a plugin error! I am disappointed. The tag filter should work and not work anywhere in the plugin.

I only change my review when I have a solution.

for Code Quality

It seems it often slow down web page. Lates WP and all updated ..

for Customer Support

No support for me. Waited a month so far with no response from my ticket.

for Bugs

Full of bugs. Exporting to PDF doesn't work. Аll banner statistics was suddenly reset after 2 weeks. PopUp windows doesn't work. Background images don't work either. Very poor documentation. Complete lack of technical support.

for Customer Support

Terrible customer support. Sent a support ticket in as the plug-in is not working as it should. I haven't heard anything in over a week.

for Bugs

Message from the people who support our server;

The site was been hacked again via the angwp plugin we advised you not to reinstall. Please contact the plugin author and have them patch the vulnerability before attempting to use angwp again.

for Feature Availability

The new version doesn't have default ads for ad zones that I can find. If so, the old version only allowed for images and not code.

for Code Quality

Again and again there are problems after updates. Some functions do not work. And the support is 0. very frustrating.

for Customer Support

Literally no customer support, I've had a ticket with them for 3 months and nothing back at all. On my site when you make minor changes all the ads disappear meaning you have to recreate your ad areas virtually every time you make a minor, non-related change or update. Giant nuisance. When it is working it is not too bad but if you want a reliable, solid plugin then this may give you some grief.

for Code Quality

Really poor plugin that slows down the entire site and fills the DB with tones of entries.

for Flexibility

Nothing but problems with this plugin.
I have the feeling it's no longer maintained.
The close button is not findeable (so you have a popup you can't click away, great!)
There is no manual whatsoever, you are on your own if you buy this plugin. You are about to lose a lot of time in trying to figure out how to add a close button to your banners - and eventually you will drop out, just like me.

Author response

If you would take the time to create a support ticket instead of a bad review the problem would have been fixed already.

for Bugs

Not able to tell when a campaign has ended from dashboard, no help from author, banners will not delete, banners run even though campaign has ended... lots of bugs and the author has not replied to repeated requests for help. Will look for another plugin

for Other

Very poor licensing management. Every time you have your website migrated from local development/test site/live site and vice versa you need to contact their support system so they would remove your license. Also the best part was when we got an SSL certificate and the difference was only 'https://' instead of 'http://'. You guessed it, the license was invalid.

for Documentation Quality

The documentation is so weak that they should say that it does not exist instead of providing the poor quality they offer. Support is just as horrible. Wouldn't that have a headache? - Because they will not want to refund your purchase. Avoid it! There are better products that know how to respect the customer

for Customer Support

I can hardly begin to describe how awful a support experience I've had with this plugin.

On several pages of this site it has an infinite loop, such that the page never loads (it crashes after hitting the 60 second timeout).

Over the course of *4 months* whilst the author raises irrelevant questions and queries whether there's even a bug at all, I have been forced to put in many hours to drill down to the exact line of code with a bug in (I personally am a WordPress plugin author with my plugins installed on a few million websites). And even now, having provided extensive in-depth explanation of the bug, 2 months have passed whilst the author either entirely ignores me or demands that I also code the fix for him. It's become an entire role reversal in which I provide free support for the plugin instead of the other way round.

This is not a one-off. I also discovered that another one of this author's plugins that our client had deployed was full of SQL injection security vulnerabilities that made the site liable to complete take-over. (I found this whilst auditing the reason for a site hack that was caused by a vulnerability in a different one of the author's plugins...). I then had to go through a process of educating the author on what an SQL injection vulnerability is, which he took some time to believe in the existence of. (And this was then used as a reason for the multi-month wait on the other support request - he said he was too busy working on the security fixes to even reply).

So, if you buy this plugin, this is what you might be getting into.

for Feature Availability

I switched to "Advanced Ads" chause i haven't found a solution for my problems (wrapping problem + no automatic cycle of ads). Btw the problems appeared after an update and i wasnt able to correct them. Long story short, im happy i switched to "Advanced Ads", my Site-CPM rose from about 2.40€ to 3.80€ at the moment, the pagespeed also increased drastically (drop in user time but more pages per visit). Just dump this poorly coded and documented piece.
