I could not create my first ad group for the Adrotate plugin on one of my new blogs. Weird, I have used Adrotate on a number of my blogs without any problems. The error message I got was
Unknown column ‘fallback’ in ‘field list’
I Googled the error message and could only find out that it had something to do with MySQL? Not being a programmer I did not want to mess with a MySQL database, so I did the next best thing: contact the plugin developer. As usual (I have contacted him a few times earlier) Arnan de Gans was quick to come up with a suggestion:
De-activate AdRotate, then re-activate. This should fix the issue.
If it doesn’t go to settings > AdRotate, and use the uninstall option. Then re-activate.
(This will result in loosing your plugin settings and data!)
That’s simple enough…
And it worked.
As I said before, I am not a programmer, so I don’t even want to think about what might have caused this problem. But the solution was simple enough:
First unplug it
The Plug it back in
Technology can be so weird sometimes…
