Agreed. Does not seem too hard. There was a PHP Advertising server I
played around with last year that had this feature. You define the
banner or whatever ad to display on your site. Then you can define a
roll in-roll out time. You also define an alternate ad to be shown
when the time is outside the campaign. I'm going to start on
something like this. But I wanted to check if anyone had seen or
built something first. No use starting from scratch.
I think this use is more than Matt and the original developer
intended for WP. But as I use this more and more to develop client
sites they bring up interesting features that can mostly be
implemented via some custom plugins.
