    Just wondering how people display ads in Wordpress reliably in multiple resolutions and across multiple devices? In particular (but not limited to) Adsense Ads.

    I have tried a few plugins but none seem to be reliable enough. Basically I think I need to work with Media Queries? But not totally sure.

    What I want is for different size ads to be displayed based on browser window/device resolution. But also if a browser window is resized it auto switches to a smaller ad block rather than running off the screen.

    Any advice on this? Anyone have experience with this?

    Thanks in advance!

    It's trouble..

    If you care about responsiveness and your readers, you disable ads when they don't fit on your screen anymore because most of them are fixed widths and heights.

    If you care about revenue above anything else. You don't care about responsiveness and create some sort of adaptive design. Like MacRumors does.

    Considering how many people use some sort of Ad Blocker extension or plugin, don't expect a decent revenue from apps. Something to think about.
