If your visitors did not like the advertisement or the banner  disturbing them, they can simply close the banner or the advertisement.Another interesting feature of this plugin is the banner will not statically on page footer, if the user scroll down the page the banner will followed down. Ok let look at the feature of this plugin and how to install it. You can download this plugin through WordPress plugin site.

After you have downloaded the plugin, extract the contents of the zip file and upload all the files into your WordPress hosting server in directory ‘wp-content/ plugins‘ using file manager or ftp software. After that, goto dashboard  and at administrator menu choose ‘plugins‘ . Find MHR-Banner[show banner/advertisement on page footer] then select ‘activate‘. Look at the picture below to help you.

You can see there are several settings you need to configure. but the most important is ‘Banner status’ , Banner Source URL’ and ‘Click URL’. Let me explains one by one how to configure your banner.

Banner Status : set it enable if you want the banner appear on your page. By default the  setting was disabled.

Banner Source URL : Full path to your image banner. Ensure to put ‘http://‘. It cannot recognize relative path.

Click URL : Set where should  the banner should  point users when clicking the banner. Also use full URL path.

Banner Background Color : Set background color which you preferred. The color will not appear if your image banner have fit the browser width. The format of the color is RGB which stand for RED GREEN and BLUE. The format is by using hexadecimal value. The easy way, use color picker.

Options: You might use this technique to fill this setting. Before uploading image banner on your host website check the image resolution. Set the explorer view as tile and the image file resolution will show up.

For example, look at the picture above, the resolution of file is 800 x 90 . 800 is image width whereas 90 is its height in pixels. So, use these values to fill up  banner height and banner width. For background height, normally just put what banner height was.

After you have set all the required settings, click the ‘save’ button. If there are no errors the banner should appear on your page or post.

  13. Great plugin Eir,
    It would be even better if had an options for logged in users, eg:

    Display banner to:
    - logged in
    - not logged in
    - both

    The other improvement would be if could display text as well as pictures.

    Thumbs Up


  14. Thank you for a easy and simple to use plugin. I was searching for something easy to install and work with, thanks again.

  15. Hi! It’s possible to have a transparent banner background?
    Thank you!

  16. You know it would be nice to remove your link from the banner – I would even pay but since I canot easily remove your fn’ text link I cannot use this banner. Most people i tested it with were clicking on your link and not my banner. lol

  17. I appreciate your banner cod ,but how do I remove your link. Kinda defeats the purpose of the ad. I’ll pay to get the link removed. See, a new business model for you!

  18. Hi Mahadir

    Is it possible to have several pics which changes on every reload ?

    An option would be to have pics with a click-able href-link and their options for advaertisment registration.

  19. Sorry, that was a misstake by me.

  20. Mahadir, is it possible to make this banner rotate-able ?
    I mean so you can show a new stored banner on reload.

  21. Dick Sjöström "webmaster"

    Is it possible make a function to rotate the banner with several images ?

  22. Well I can´t see how to get in direct contact with you ?
    But I think you now got my mail in this comment.
    Please contact me for your custom solution.

  23. Hi Madet,

    WordPress 3.5.1
