Ad Slots are the areas on your site’s pages in which Ad Swapper™ ads are displayed. Ad Swapper™ currently supports three Ad Slot types:-
- Fixed-Height Banner (1 generally full-width ad, usually at the top or bottom of the page)
- Sidebar (A single column of ads, generally in a sidebar)
- Fixed-Row-Height Grid (#rows x #cols ads, anywhere on the page – though typically at the bottom)
Examples of these three Ad Slot types are given below…
The Fixed-Height Banner type Ad Slot is intended to display one, generally full-width ad, which is usually located at the top or bottom of the page.
EXAMPLE 1: Fixed-Height Banner at the top of the page.
In this example, the Fixed-Height Banner is at the very top of the page.
But if you wanted to put the banner between the logo and the top menu, or between the top menu and the page content proper, you could do that too.
EXAMPLE 2: Fixed-Height Banner in the page content.
As with all the Ad Swapper™ Ad Slot types, a Fixed-Height Banner can be placed anywhere on the page you want it.
In this example, as well as the Fixed-Height Banner at the top of the page, a second Fixed-Height Banner has been placed within the page content. ➜ ➜ ➜ ➜ ➜
The second Fixed-Height Banner was placed within the page content by using a Shortcode.
The Sidebar type Ad Slot is intended to display a (single) column of ads – as would commonly be found in a sidebar, for example.
Many WordPress themes support “Sidebar” Widgets. So inserting one or more Sidebar type Ad Slots into your pages – by using the Ad Swapper™ Ad Displayer Widget – is usually quite easy to do.
By default, the Sidebar Ad Slot max. height is 1000px – and it will display an infinite number of ads. But you can set the max. height – and/or the max. number of ads displayed – as you wish.
The Fixed-Row-Height Grid type Ad Slot in intended to display a grid of ads (#rows x #cols) – anywhere on the page (though ads grids like this are usually found at the bottom of pages).
EXAMPLE 1: 3×3 Fixed-Row-Height Grid (at bottom of page).
This example is of a 3 row x 3 column grid.
But since the example site has only six ads (to display), the third row of the grid is empty (and Ad Swapper™ is smart enough to recognise this – and NOT display it).
Multiple Ad Slots Per Page
You can have as many Ad Slots – of any mix of different types – per page, as you want.
And if your site has more than one page template, the Ad Slots on any given page template can be unique to that page template too.
