After 24 grueling hours slaving over a hot computer, I have completed the Max Adsense widget to make the process of adding ads easier than counting all the money you’re sure to reap. The widget is made is such a way that everything you can do in the Google Adsense control panel (except anything that requires being saved such as saving channels, pallets etc.) is built directly into the widget. It evens has a wonderful (if I do say so myself) color picker to make it even easier to design your ads and alows up to 4 widgets*. If the widget is popular I may even add a few more features such as a dynamic example ad etc. However, the widget does not make referral buttons, there are too many of each kind to add into one little widget.
Screen shot (click thumbnail to see larger image, although it is still scaled down):
All it requires is a Google Adsense account and the widgets plugin for wordpress.
- Unzip max_ad.zip.
- Copy the two files in the max_ad folder into your plugins > widgets directory.
- Activate the widget in your control panel.
- The only thing else you need is your publisher id from google. It can be found in top line of any of your old Google ad codes and looks like pub-23456765434
Other than that most of it should be self explanatory. But feel free to ask any questions.
*Thanks to Otto for making his execphp widget which I heavily borrowed code from to allow multiple widgets.
