I'm looking for a solution to manage a mix of advertising code snippets.

Lets say you have three advertising contracts.

adService1, adService2, adService3

each of them will have some code in the site section


then you have different advertising zones (zoneA, zoneB, zoneC)

<div id="adZoneA">
    echo *.zoneA
    // displaying any adService having a code for zoneA

<div id="adZoneB">
    echo *.zoneB
    // displaying any adService having a code for zoneB
<!-- etc... -->

having to manage this by hand would soon become difficult to maintain, so I'm looking into what king of tools I could base myself on. Most of what I've found as plugins tries to be more of a advertising management tool (ad serving system a bit like revive-adserver.com) that tries to manage and count views and clicks.

As this is for a heavy traffic website, I can not afford to have a complex system behind this and all I need is to spit out some text (javascript code) specific to keys that I can query with a wildecard/grouping method.

Thanks for pointing me out into a direction to a simple and robust solution.

    Check out shortcodes UI - you can create placeholders like [adservice-1] to use anywhere in your content, and configure all the HTML/CSS/JS in one place – TheDeadMedic May 24 '16 at 15:58
  • I'm now looking into this. I was looking into 'option tree' hoping there would be a way to query option ids using wildcards – Antony Gibbs May 24 '16 at 16:10
  • Google Tag Manager is awesome for this kind of problem. – colecmc May 31 '16 at 20:52
