We needed to create a banner ad management system for a client and found all existing plugins either broken or not very simple to manage. We decided to create a custom one using Custom Post Types, post meta data and basic templates. We realized it was such an easy thing to put together, we figured we should make a quick video demo on it.

This is a very simple banner ad management system but could easily be extended to include custom start/end dates, max clicks and more.

A couple times in the video I refer to TextWrangler – I really meant to say TextExpander
