Step 2: Inventory Slots

After you have the Swift Ad plugin registered you need to create inventory slots.

This can be done by clicking inventory on the left hand side of your screen and then clicking the “Add New” button.

Step 3: Creating an Inventory Slot

After clicking “Add New” from the Inventory screen you will be brought to the “Add New Ad Slot” screen.

Once here, select a name for the add slot and enter a description. Then you can select the desired ad size and type from the drop down menu.

Step 4: Plugging In the Shortcode

Return to the inventory screen and copy the shortcode of the particular ad you would like to run on your site.

You will see in this example I have selected the shortcode titled “Upper.” You will need to copy your selected shortcode and paste it wherever you would like the ad to serve. Typically, you will paste it in a WordPress widget.
