Asked by raven2099
raven2099 – thanks for the query. I am no longer supporting Advertising Manager. OpenX still supports it I believe. You may want to try their forums or twitter to get an answer.
Sorry I cannot be more helpful!


That means they do not support and stop for update for the version.

And now, is the time for WordPress 3.3, you need a newer version Advertisment Plugin for your Ads.

I’m here to write a note, how I move from Advertising Manager to AdRotate in WordPress.

Install AdRotate

Firstly, install the Plugin ,  AdRotate.

Install AdRotate

Install Search & Replace

Then install the Search & Replace Plugin.

Install search and replace

Ad Management

Setting up your Ads in AdRotate -> Manage Ads.

Paste in the Title and AdCode. After save, it will generate the short code like this.

Ad Management

Code Replacing

Replace the old code to the new code.

The old code is [ad#Google Adsense 468 x 60], we would like to replace to [ adrotate banner=”1″].

So we use the plugin Search & Replace

We need to replace the code in content only, so

  • Tick the Content
  • Search for  [ad#Google Adsense 468 x 60]
  • Replaced with  [ adrotate banner=”1″]


Search and replace

Search & Replace the code

Search and replace success

Just follow the step to replace all your other Ads like

[ad#Google Adsense 468 x 60]
[ad#Google Adsense 160 x 600]
[ad#Google Adsense 300 x 250]
[ad#Google Adsense 336 x 280]

Make sure you do backup before start do anything, because this is direct access to your database.

Remember to deactive all those plugin after replaced.
