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.
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.
