I don't know if anyone here has any experience putting Comic Rocket ad boxes on a Wordpress-based site, but I can't seem to get the box to show up.

Just so everyone understands, I have been using Comic Rocket ad boxes on my non-Wordpress site for about a year with no problems. I recently started a Wordpress-based site and I tried adding the Comic Rocket code manually like I did with my other site but it doesn't show up.

I found a Comic Rocket Ad Box Widget that is supposed to load the code automatically, but when I installed it I found I need an API Key, with no indication of how to get one and it won't work without it.

I emailed Comic Rocket support a couple of times but I never heard back, and I started a thread in their support forum but no one has responded.

So if anyone knows how to set it up I would be grateful!

Thanks!

I've not tried, but typically when I have a problem with a Wordpress Plugin version of something I've done outside of Wordpress, I just do it the way I used to.

Plugins are supposed to make your life easier but sometimes they just don't. You always have the option to do it the old way. You may need to edit the header HTML (Appearance -> Editor -> Header) and just put in the code the same way you used to have it.

Thank you, yes I was eventually able to find a way to add the code manually using a different method than I was trying before.

I never did get any response from Comic Rocket in any of the places I tried to contact them.
