Taro Ad Fields


You can create ad slot for you WordPress theme.
In each position, the latest ad field will be displayed.
You can manage your advertisement’s schedule & display!

From Theme

Call action hook in your theme:

<?php do_action( 'taro_ad_field', 'after-header', '<div class="after-header">', '</div>' ); ?>

In this place, the latest ad will be displayed.
With Taro Clockwork Post plugin, you can let your ad be automatically expired.

Hook Arguments

do_action( $hook_name, $slug, $before, $after, $number );>
  1. $hook_name: The action hook name. Always should be taro_ad_field.
  2. $slug: Slug of position.
  3. $before: String to be output just before ad block. If no ad exists, this won’t be displayed.
  4. $after: String to be output just after ad block.
  5. $number: Number of ad to be displayed. Default is 1.

From Widget

We also have widget for ad field. The latest ad of specified position will be displayed in the widget.

Set Default Positions

In your theme, add filter hook for taf_default_positions.
These terms will be created automatically.

add_filter( 'taf_default_positions', function() {
    return [
        'after-header' => [
            'name' => 'After Header',
            'description' => 'Displayed just after header.',
        'after-content' => [
            'name' => 'After Content',
            'description' => 'Displayed just after content.',
            'mode' => 'iframe',
} );

Defaults are empty array, so no default position.
You can add new position to them with filter hook like above.
The structure of array will be like below:

  'slug_name' => [
    'name'        => 'Verbose Postion Name',
    'description' => 'About where will be displayed(up to you)',
    'mode'        => 'iframe',

If you set mode as ‘iframe’, this position will have URL and display ad in very simple HTML pages.
You can get URL from view link in position list of admin screen.

This feature is useful to deliver ad in external platform like Facebook Instant Article.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/taro-ad-fields directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Go to Ad Field > Position and create positons. If you set default positions with filters, they will be automatically generated.
  4. Register ad posions. The published fields will be displayed.

As far as we know, NO. But nothing is perfect.
