    Can users add advertising as a registered user.

    Can Other Users Put Code on their site and track and get paid for advertising.

    Does is have a payment system using PayPal.

    If not can you build for me and at what price.

    and of course a full dashboard for each user and have it serve up what they what they have chose to do. Such as a check box for each interest they are interested in. Then it serves up what they want.

    Please don’t forget GEO Targeting as well very important for the sale that consumers know they are targeting people in there area only when a add is served up.

    Thanks Very Much.

      Hi Sal,
      these features aren’t present and I currently do not accept new projects. Thanks for the ideas though, I might implement them one day.

    Thanks for this plugin. I seems that it has a small bug though. When adding target=”_blank” to the link, the click is not registered.
    I will try to fix this bug myself, but I thought I let you know.
