If a dashboard notification misses its layout or looks out of shape try clearing your browser cache.
Some ad blockers block parts of the AdRotate dashboard, check out this page to make an exception for your website in adblockers – Whitelist your site.

I recently installed the free version of AdRotate and was very impressed with how easy it was to get set up and working from the beginning. The support manuals are detailed and I like the simplicity of managing individual banners, grouping them and using shortcodes to place adverts where you need them. It’s very flexible, intuitive and I’ll be looking at the Pro Licence next partly for extra features and partly to support Arnan’s work as a developer.
