Floating Banner Ad Rotator with Tracking

The Lowdown:

This plugin is still in beta but it is a pretty nice simple banner ad plugin. It displays the banners in an overlay on the bottom of your site with an X to close them out. Put as many ads in as you like and it will rotate though them on every page load. It has some simple stats for views and clicks. So if your looking for a simple ad rotator this one may be for you.

More Plugin Info

The Lowdown;

What this plugin does is provides more information about the plugins you have installed in your site. Tings such as date added to the repository, last updated, requires version of WordPress, tested to version, link to wordpress.org page a download link and a donate link. Sometime this information is necessary and having it right there on your plugin page really makes a difference I think

Sometimes you have a certain widget configuration that you need to use over-and-over again. Widget Favorites provides a way to save a widget instance by name to identify it later when loading the favorited widget instance into another widget.

Another way to look at this plugin is that it provides (non-automatic) revisions for widgets. Note that this only adds functionality to widgets managed in the Customizer.
