The bretteleben.de "WP Google Ad Manager Plugin" for WordPress allows to use the Google Ad Manager with WordPress . It gives you the possibility to add ads to your posts, widgets and template.

bretteleben.de "WP Google Ad Manager Plugin" for WordPress

The bretteleben.de "WP Google Ad Manager Plugin" works with WordPress 2.7.x and 2.8.x.

It allows to integrate Google Ad Manager Ad Slots into your posts, widgets and directly into your template.
Also it comes with full support for custom targeting [GA_googleAddAttr(key, value)], page-attributes [GA_googleAddAdSensePageAttr(param, value)] and slot-attributes [GA_googleAddAdSenseSlotAttr(slotname, param, value)].
For further information on these parameters please refer to the Google Ad Manager Help.

Installation and Usage

A step by step tutorial on installation and usage can be found at Howto Plugin .


The plugin is tested successful with WordPress 2.7.x and 2.8.x. Anyway, using them aside with one or another existing plugin/modul/component may bring to light problems i haven't foreseen.
I suggest a test run before using it on a live site and stand by for your questions and suggestions.

I am happy about everybody who takes the time to vote for this plugin at wordpress.org or gives me a link back to www.bretteleben.de on his website, this way helping me to popularize the plugin. The plugin itself does not produce any hidden links, eastereggs or whatever.

If you have questions or suggestions, please use the comment-function. Records about the behavior of this plugin (positive or negative) are most welcome.

Ads not displaying in IE but do in Firefox

Not sure what the issue is but we have people viewing our site (www.insuranceinfodesk.com) that can see the ads if they use Firefox but if viewing the site with IE7 or IE8 they cannot.

Have verified that we are running the current version of Java on these workstations

Hi Dave!

JavaScript has nothing to do with Java. Beside this, I can see the ads (right side) in both, Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox. Is it possible that your workstations not only have the same version of Java but also the same AdBlocker? ;)

Best regards

There seems to be no way to deactive this. I need to be able to deactivate this if I have to. Can you tell me how to uninstall it as it doesnt show up in my plugin list?

Hi Dan!

If there are problems the easiest way to quickly disable a plugin in WordPress has always been to delete it's file/folder (in this case "wp-google-ad-manager-plugin") from /wp-content/plugins/.
Anyway, to do some testing please tell me what version of the plugin you are using, what version of WordPress you are using, if you installed the plugin with this version or did some updates of WordPress since you installed it and which way you installed the plugin (upload or WordPress backend).

Best regards
