    Since there is no obvious list of features for this plugin on the site, I need to ask some specific questions before I buy ...

    Does the plugin send reminders to advertisers at the end of their ad period?
    Does it allow ads to be renewed, without having to input the information again?
    Can ad durations be configured by the admin, so the users have options?
    Can the admin give out coupon codes for discounts?
    Does it have any sort of click tracking?
    Does the plugin have an RSS ad option?
    Does it offer the ability to give a discount for purchasing both a site ad and RSS ad (if RSS ads are available)?

    Thanks
    Nathan

    1.) Yes, email reminders are sent to advertisers.
    2.) Yes, the renewal link sends them straight to the payment screen.
    3.) No, you can't set multiple durations for an ad at this time; 1 preset duration per ad (although subscription purchases are available).
    4.) There is no coupon code feature (yet).
    5.) Yes, full stats tracking is available.
    6.) There isn't a separate RSS option, although inline (ads appearing in posts) ads can be shown in the RSS feed too).
    7.) N/A (no separate RSS option).

    Another good way to get a feel for what OIO has to offer is via the admin demo.

    YES, thank you! I couldn't find a link to that page though. Am I missing something?

    Also, RE: the RSS ads ... the inline ads have that option on the demo. Does that mean that the inline ad will only be shown in the RSS feed? If so, is there any way to get that ad to go at the bottom of the post when viewing the RSS item? That would be awesome!

    If the RSS Feed option is set to yes, then any inline ads purchased will also appear in the feed (as well as normal posts).

    If you just wanted the ads to appear in the RSS feed, the file that controls it is platform/wordpress/inline.php - you could use the is_feed() wordpress conditional to stop ads showing if they aren't in the feed (example code below):

    function oiopub_inline() {
    global $oiopub_set;
    if(oiopub_inline && $oiopub_set->enabled == 1) {
    if(is_feed()) {
    add_filter('the_content', array(&$this, 'output'));
    }
    }
    }

    Is there any way I can get the ad to show up at the BOTTOM of the post in an RSS reader, rather than at the beginning?

    Actually, nevermind. I just used a second banner zone and a WordPress filter to add a single 400x160 banner (out of 5) to the end of the_content when viewing a feed.

    For anyone interested, here's the code I used (I made it into a separate plugin:

    <?php
    /*
    Plugin Name: Nathan's Ad Manager Enhancement
    Plugin URI: http://www.nathanrice.net/
    Description: This plugin lets you use the OIO Ad Manager to manage RSS Feed Ads too ...
    Author: Nathan Rice
    Version: 1.0
    Author URI: http://www.nathanrice.net/
    */
    add_filter('the_content', 'nr_ad_enhancement');
    function nr_ad_enhancement($content) {
    if(is_feed()) $content .= oiopub_banner_zone(2, 'left', '<hr />', 1);
    return $content;
    }
    ?>
