Create by Mediavine WordPress plugin

Today is a big day at Mediavine, as we are thrilled to announce the official release of our flagship plugin, Create by Mediavine, which is now live in the WordPress repository and ready for you to download and install.   What is Create by Mediavine? A dream come true. More practically, Create is a plugin designed for every publisher’s most valuable content — whether that’s recipes, travel guides, craft tutorials, or anything else. This will help you display that content in beautiful, printable fashion, encourage audiences to scroll to the end of your content, and offer new ways for you to provide value to users.

Last week we made a pretty big mistake that we’d like to apologize for. We are so sorry. We’ve always done everything in our power to operate without the need for admin access to publishers’ websites unless absolutely necessary. As we’ve grown, so has the need for technological innovation to improve ad performance, which at Mediavine is more than just a way to help you make the most money possible – it is part of a holistic approach to site-wide functionality and health. Creating WordPress plugins that are as useful to you as our ad tech is has been a goal of ours for years. We started toward this goal with the Mediavine Control Panel, which, among other things, allows you to easily install our script wrapper and make sure your ads are always up to date. As anyone who uses WordPress knows, it is […]
