How do I use AdSpeed Ad Server in WordPress?

In additional to the manual ad placement method, AdSpeed has released a plugin for WordPress, a popular publishing platform. This plugin displays advertising in your AdSpeed account on the sidebar and inside any WordPress post.

Ads on the Sidebar

Click on menu Appearance/Widgets and drag AdSpeed Ad Server to the sidebar. For each ad placement, you need to specify a zone identification number. You can find the zone ID from the zone listing, do NOT use the zone name. This zone must exist within your AdSpeed account.

Ads in a Blog Entry

To use it in a post, write this macro {AdSpeed:Zone:1234} to display a creative from zone number 1234. In this example, #1234 is a zone identification number in your AdSpeed account. You can find the zone ID from the zone listing, do NOT use the zone name. This macro will be replaced with the actual serving code for the zone in the post.
