WordPress Ad Server (CMAC) - Campaigns - Campaign Groups Setting

Campaign Group Settings

Back to User Guides

In WordPress Ad Server version 1.2.8, we’ve added the support for the Campaign Groups. This functionality allows administrators to display Campaigns with different types (Image/HTML/AdSense) in one place.

In order to display a Campaign from the Group, one has to use the following shortcode example: [cm_ad_changer group_id="YOUR ID"]

Please note that the group_id and campaign_id attributes should not be used together.  Although if they were – only the group_id will be taken into account.

Campaign Groups List

Campaign groups list - WordPress Ad Management
Campaign groups list

Campaign Groups view consists of a list of the already defined Groups and a button that allows creating a new Campaign Group

The interface of the Campaign Groups is similar to the listing of the Campaigns

In each row, we have a Group Name followed by its ID, Order, number of Campaigns within the group and finally the Actions.

To edit a campaign, one can click on the Group Name or use the Edit icon from the Actions list.

Campaign Group Settings

Campaign group settings
  • Group Name - To distinguish the Campaign Groups on the list you can assign a name (length is limited to 50 characters) to each group. This is for internal use only.
  • Group Order - Select how the Campaigns of the groups should be ordered. This option allows choosing the method of selecting the Campaign from the group.
    • Selected - This means that only the campaign with the highest weight will be displayed.
    • Random - This means random-weighted distribution. The weight is based on the set weight for each campaign.
  • Campaigns of Group - The list of the Campaigns within the Group. This section allows administrators to control which Campaigns are assigned to the Group.

    It also allows us to easily add/remove the Campaigns from the Group. To quickly add a Campaign to the group, use the select box and click Add. Below the options, you can see the list of Campaigns assigned to the Group.

New Campaign’s Group Settings

Except for the possibility to assign the Campaigns from the Campaign Group edit view, it’s also possible to add the Campaign to the Group using the Campaign’s edit view.

Adding campaign to the group - WordPress Banner Ad Management
Adding campaign to the group
  • Campaign Group - Displays the list of the Campaign Groups and allows them to select one of them to assign the Campaign to it.
  • Group Weight - This field holds a value that determines the priority of the Campaign within the group. You can assign any integer number to it. The values of Group Weight will be normalized before the display.
The Group Weight normalization means that the Campaign with “Group Weight” of 1000 is 100 times more likely to be displayed than the Campaign with “Group Weight” of 10. This means that setting all the Group Weights within the Group to the same value e.g. 100 will result with each Campaign having the same chance of appearing.
It also means that Campaigns with Group Weight of “0” won’t be displayed at all!
