Landing Page Details

Simple String is a plugin which displays hyper-linked ad string on your WordPress website. The plugin allows your visitors/advertisers to purchase and include their strings into rotation. The plugin does it in automated mode and accept payments through PayPal, Payza/AlertPay or InterKassa. With Simple String plugin you don’t have to pay any commission fee to ad networks, because now you can work directly with advertisers. It’s really easy: install the plugin and start making more money today!

Features

  • Handle ad strings on website: use this script to handle ad strings.
  • Sell ad strings: sell string spots directly to advertisers.
  • Multiple payment gateways: PayPal, Payza/AlertPay, and InterKassa.
  • Keep your SEO score: all strings are pulled through AJAX and use redirection.
  • String statistics: script sends statistics (number of shows, click, CTR) to advertisers.
  • Modern advertiser form: HTML5 + CSS3, AJAX-ed advertiser form.
  • Content editor: insert any HTML-content inside of advertiser box.
  • Easy to install: install and activate the plugin as any other plugins.
  • Translation ready: plugin might be translated to any language.
  • WordPress Best Practices: no any alerts from Plugin Check and WP_DEBUG.

Front End Functionality

The best way to describe how the plugin works is to show live example. Look at the top of “Live Preview” website. Do you see hyper-linked string inside of color (yellow) rectangle? This is Simple String. Your visitors/advertisers can publish their own ad string there.

Now click at the small link “Publish your link here for 0.95 USD” at the bottom right corner of the box. You will be redirected to page for advertisers. On this page you can fill up simple form and click “Continue” button. If everything is OK, the system asks you to confirm provided information and redirects to PayPal, Payza/AlertPay or InterKassa to complete the payment. After that your ad string will be included into rotation.

In case of several strings, every time plugin select one of them randomly. During the day all ad strings are displayed approximately the same number of times. Your ad string will be shown as many times as you purchased. Of course, if somebody cheats and clicks “refresh” button many times the plugin doesn’t count them as separate shows. At the end you get statistics about your ad string by e-mail.

Installation

  1. Install and activate the plugin. Once activated, it creates menu “Simple String” in left side column in the admin area.
  2. Click left side menu “Simple String >>> Settings” and do required settings. Set your PayPal ID, Payza/AlertPay E-mail, InterKassa parameters, price, minimum number of shows, e-mail templates, etc. Please look at the screenshot to see what kind of settings you can do there.
  3. Create new page (or use existing one) and insert two shortcodes there. The first shortcode will be replaced by sign up form for advertiser. The second shortcode will be replaced by active ad strings stats.
    [ssform]
    [ssactivelist]
    
  4. Edit your theme files and insert piece of code in those place where you wish to see Simple String ad box.
    <div id="simplestring"></div>

    Can this plugin be installed along side of your "Banner Manger for WP" without issues? Or can only one be active? Sorry for all the questions but think it better to ask them now and not end up with something I do not need. Thanks.

    Hi. You can use both plugins on the same websites (like on my demo website). Please notice that with Simple String you can't create different campaigns and show them in defferent parts of website (with Banner Manager you can do that, but not with Simple String). Only one Simple String box can be displayed on website (in most cases you need modify your theme file to integrate Simple String box).

    Hi. I've just checked. Everything works correctly. Please note that PayPal reported about "Pending" transaction (please go to WP dashboard and check "Transactions" section). The payment is pending because it was made to an email address that is not yet registered or confirmed. Once the transaction get "Completed" status, ad string will be published. About paypal.com.uk. You were redirected there, because payer country of residence is GB. You can view details of pending transaction by clicking "Pending" on Transactions page (WP Dashboard -> Simple String -> Transactions).

    Is it possible to make it so every text ad that is purchased is approved before going live? My concern is porn, or malicious sites taking advantage of this....how would you prevent that?

    Hi. Unfortunately, there is no pre-moderation option in this plugin. What I always do is checking every new string when I'm available. I had around 40 different strings and all of them were in the website-related area (hosting, scripts, plugins, domains, etc). You always can write terms o service and say that every bad string will be removed. I'm sue that advertisers will not pay for string that breaks your rules (that will be removed).

    Hi. You can place ad into DIV-container and adjust width. Like that:

    ... Simple String code ...
    You can set several ad boxes on your website. The pool of ads will be common for all ad boxes.
