Simple GAM


Finally an easy plugin to add Google Ad Manager (GAM) blocks into WP – shortcode and template function. It was designed to work with a multisite install, please tell me if any problem on a single site install. Thanks!


Simply use [simpledfp_block ad_id=xxxx] where xxxx is the id of your DFP ad post type, created when you installed the plugin.

Template function

Please use the following code:

if (class_exists('simplegam_main')) {
    // checks the plugin is installed
    simpledfpBlock(array('ad_id' => xxxx);

With, also xxxx being your Simple GAM Ad id, previously created in wordpress admin panel. You can retrive this ID like this.
I recommend the Reveal IDs plugin.

Steps to use correctly

  1. Install the plugin
  2. Fill the DFP network identifier in the settings of the plugin
  3. A new menu DFP Ads appears in the sidebar of admin panel
  4. Use it to Add a new ad, fill mandatory fields :
    • DFP Bloc code, as it appears in DFP backoffice
    • Size of bloc to display on you site, in the format WWWxHHH (where WWW is the width of the block, and HHH the height of the block)
  5. Refresh you frontend, and you should see block creations (as they are defined in DFP backoffice) appear on your site.



  1. Search via plugins > add new.
  2. Find the plugin listed and click activate.
  3. Use the shortcode or template function

Efficient to avoid complicated ad plugins : just copy paste your network code, DFP bloc code and size, and you good to launch campaigns from DPF and manage them from there. Good simple one!
