Adscend Media Shortcodes

This plugin needs an Adscend Media account to function. The intention is to allow a quick and easy way for you to award user points for Adscend activity.

The intention of this plugin was to make it easier for a WordPress admin to talk with the Adscend API without actually having to program curl calls in PHP manually and automate the recognition of the monetization activity by your end users.

Shortcodes and Syntax

[vyps-as-watch pub=113812 profile=13246 pid=1]

The above shortcode will put up an Adscend wall using the publisher and profile id. (Those are our test site numbers. Replace it with yours.) The pid is the point ID, of course.

The pid is the point ID number seen on the Point List page. This shortcode always requires the user to be logged in, and it will always be hardcoded to ID number of the current user.

To have a user redeem points through the Adscend API (the points Adscend has said they earned), you need to get your own API off your Adscend wall page. The API key is on the integration page on your offer wall under API/SDK integration.

[vyps-as-redeem pub=113812 profile=13246 api=typekeyhere pid=1 payout=750]

All attributes must be set for this to function. This creates a button site user to click on to have your site talk to the Adscend API and confirm how many points they earned from Adscend.


If you are not familiar with Adscend Media, they do have odd practices. Users may see ads or do activities, but Adscend will not credit them for one reason or another after a while. In my own testing, I noticed I can only get nine ad watch credits or so in a twenty-hour period before it stops paying out on the Adscend side. Switching to another device or IP address helps, but consider telling your users to use our VY256 Miner if they keep hitting their daily view limit as it seems that Adscend may have gotten wise to people leaving their tablet on with volume off running video ads while no one is actually watching.
