best advertising add-on ever!!!
siropu is amazing!! i love this add-on so much
it has many features and it's easy for users to buy ads,
siropu has great support and it always improving this add-on
his is one of the top add-no developers here and i trust him,
i am happy to buy his add-ons
tank you sir for this amazing add-on!!
hip hip hooray for siropu!!
Very good add-on! Its really well designed and worth every single cent. Also the support is always fast and very good :)
Absolutely great support from Siropu, I couldn't be happier with this addon as an AdManager for my Forum.
As feature rich as this add-on is, I don't think it’s going to work for us (and it probably won’t work for most other big boards either). It’s really disappointing as it’s so close to being a full-blown ad solution, it’s just lacking some basic but incredibly important features. Once a site grows beyond simply selling rotating ad spaces CPM’s come into play, and being able to control how impressions are delivered over a period of time is absolutely vital. For example, if we sell an advertiser a package with 100,000 impressions we should be able to specify whether they’ll be delivered over a week, a month, etc. Also lacking is the ability to set frequency caps. I’m hoping @siropu will work with us big guys to implement these features in the future.
Impressions distribution feature has been added. Frequency cap existed already.
Great support and the add on works perfectly, couldn't be happier! Definitely the best way to get the most out of monetizing your forum.
As always, just an amazing system. Loved the xf1 version, the new additions and ease of use in this one... best ads system for XF without question.
This is absolutely the BEST ad manager I have seen for Xenforo (and I've been through two others already) -- Siropu not only creates an extremely powerful and full featured system, but they are responsive to the needs of their add-on owners with quick, efficient and friendly support - as well as feature enhancements. If you want to help generate site revenue this is a one stop solution for really providing your community with an amazing ads solution. Well done Siropu!!
Great add on, responsive developer, very glad for his help getting the functionality I needed to run DFP ads on my forum!
Easily one of the most useful add-ons for our large scale forum. Continuous updates, friendly support, and leading features make this add-on a must-have.
PERFECT. This is one of the best implemented, thought-out add-ons of any kind. Well worth twice the price. The only thing missing is the ability to run site background ads.
