New WordPress Plug-In: Kontera Integration

There is a new WordPress plug-in in my repertoire called Kontera Integration. I decided to write this plug-in after I learned that PayPerPost requires that none of the posts submitted to them contain any form of advertising that overlaps the text. Sadly, this is what Kontera Advertising Network does, so I had to manually disable it for every review that I wrote. This ended up being very repetitive, so I decided to write a plug-in that lets me specify which posts to enable or disable Kontera ads for. After you activate this plug-in, you will see a box in the sidebar of the post editor called “Kontera Integration”. Setting it to “no” will disable all Kontera ads for that post, but still show them in any others.

There are a few more features that I decided to implement. First of all, now it’s very simple to change the color of the ad links and other customizations, because they are options in your WordPress panel now. Also the plug-in restricts the Kontera ads into your blog posts, which should increase your click through percentage.

Download

Kontera Integration v0.1

Installation

The installation of this plug-in is quite simple. After you have downloaded the Kontera Integration plugin from here and uploaded it into the wp-content/plugins directory, browse into the Kontera Integration tab found in the Options section of your WordPress admin panel. There you will have to set your Publisher ID, which can be found in the default ad code supplied by Kontera. I have highlighted it in the following screenshot.

Yes, I am aware of Rodney Shupe’s Kontera ContentLinks / MIVA InLine plug-in. But his plug-in does not offer the features that I needed. For example, you cannot specify which posts to Konteratify or you cannot configure the ads through the admin panel. However his plug-in also works with the MIVA Network, and supports WordPress MU.

    Thank you for the excellent plugins.

    Hi,
    The idea behind this plug-in is excellent. I grabbed a copy and installed it today.. Kontera Ads are turned on by default except for PPP posts, where I’ve manually disabled them using your options panel. However, none of the KonAds are appearing ever since I installed the plug-in. If you check the source of the page(s), the Kona code is entirely missing !! The plug-in is installed and active… any ideas where / why it’s going wrong?

    Am using WP 2.2.2

    Hi there,
    Thank you for your prompt response :) I installed the fixed version and Bingo! The ads started appearing in a while. Great work on the plug-in.

    Cheers,
    m^e

    Forgot to mention… since you got the content targeting on with the KonaBody div, it works even better.

    The earlier plug-in I was using (Rodney’s Kontera DynamiContext) had some sort of a problem with it causing the targeting div to wrap around the div containing the Post Popularity Rating ONLY !!! As a result none of the ads would show. When I edited the plug-in and removed the targeting code, the ads started showing up all over the page (not just the content)… in short, it was a sick mess 😀

    Cheers,
    m^e

    Came across a minor problem with the plug-in.

    For posts which aren’t supposed to display the Kontera ads, the plugin wraps the content body in a span named KonaFilter – right?

    Now, I don’t know whether it’s because of the plug-in itself or WordPress’s own parsing engine, the statement is getting wrapped within tags. Similarly, the ending tag is also enclosed within the paragraph tags.

    Example:

    Code for Post title


    Post Body

    This is causing invalid markup when passed through the W3 XHTML Validator. Each instance of KonaFilter causes 2 validation errors – due to two mismatched starting/ending span tags.

    Any quick-fix for this?

    Please delete the last comment – the HTML tags got filtered out from it. You probably won’t be able to see problem. Here it is again..

    Errm.. never mind the comments. I’ll mail you directly. The HTML tags got filtered out even after I applied spaces, like: < tag >

    I’ll try to mail you instead.

    Thanks!

    • Karol Krizka / Sep 30 2007

      It’s most likely a problem with Kontera, because my ads aren’t showing up right now either.

  9. Cai Hughes / Sep 30 2007

    I think its a problem with kontera as not even this simple test page is working:

  11. girlrobot / Sep 30 2007

    I’m having the same problem as the earlier guy…what was the fix? I have the kontera plugin installed and active but it’s not showing on my posts. i don’t even see the code in the source. Also, whenever I turn it on for a post, it causes my first paragraph to have a different font size/face from the rest of the post. I fixed this by adding a paragraph tag before the post and that fixes it. I guess it is getting replaced by the kontera div tag…any help would be appreciated!

  12. Cai Hughes / Sep 30 2007

    Mines working now, guess it was a problem with Kontera.

    • Kabalyero / Dec 12 2007

  14. saimatkong / Nov 6 2007

    The ads is not showing. Even it’s set to yes.
    Anyone could help me on this?

    Thanks.

    • Karol Krizka / Nov 7 2007

      Make sure your theme is calling the wp_footer() function at the end.

      • saimatkong / Nov 7 2007

        hey, thanks for the reply. How do i call the wp_footer() function ? How to check? is it in the footer.php ?

        • Karol Krizka / Nov 7 2007

          In your admin panel, go to Presentations->Theme Editor. And from the list on the right hand side, click on the link that says “Footer”, it should then display the code for it.

        • saimatkong / Nov 8 2007

          Thanks it’s working after i add in

  15. Sus / Nov 29 2007

    Brilliant absolutely. I’ve been using another, which didn’t suit my needs and was happy to find yours. And so easy to install and get on with things. Thanks so much.

  16. Flora Earl / Dec 13 2007

    This plugin is just what I was looking for to start showing Kontera all over my blogs. I use themes from http://www.zenphotothemes.com/, and the plugin worked fine with most of them but it is incompatible with their bluecrunch theme – the plugin was sending the columns adrift.But it works fine with the purple, green and black versions of the same theme! I am going to have to upload new versions when I have the time.

  17. arief_baskoro / Mar 10 2008

    hi, great plugin. I have just install it on my site. btw, your hovering google ads is quite annoying ya? 😀 just a thought :)

    • Karol Krizka / Mar 13 2008

      Yeah, I’m probably gonna move it to the side over the weekend. But you would be surprised what effect it has on the click-rate!

  18. GCPR / Apr 26 2008
