1. Starting with extension version 1.2.15 we have adopted a license key for all our extensions. Your extension will only work if you have a validated license key entered for the location where your extension is installed. Refer to here for more details on how license keys work.
2. In our opinion AbanteCart v 1.2.14 is extremely problematic and requires a large number of patch files to work correctly. Our recommendation is to upgrade v 1.2.14 to AbanteCart v 1.2.15.
This extension v 1.2.15 is tested to work with AbanteCart v 1.2.15. It may work with AbanteCart v 1.2.14 if all the patch files have been updated but we don't recommend you using AbanteCart v 1.2.14.
This extension allows for individual banner statistics to be viewed in detail over a specified date range. The results can be exported for further analysis and off-server storage. Additionally, database maintenance can be done by individual banner and date range.
The database table for banner views becomes excessively large if not maintained. We have seen tables with millions of entries spanning multiple years. The size of the table should be managed for smoother operation of your site and good management of your space requirements.
