Geolocation Magic Macros

The Geolocation Magic Macros plugin for Revive Adserver, Magic Geo in short, enables you to dynamically insert the name of the geographic location of a visitor into a banner. This can be used in both the HTML code and the destination URL. Using this new feature, you can automatically make a banner adjust its content to the location of a visitor.

This page lists the release notes and change log for all releases of the Geolocation Magic Macros plugin for Revive Adserver (MagicGeo).

  • Added default value in magic tags, e.g. ‘{geo.city|No city}’, or ‘{geo.country.enc|Nowhere}’.

Version 1.0.0 – released March 1, 2011

  • Added: {geo.us_metro} and {geo.us_metro_code}

This version 1.0.0 of the plugin has been deprecated, since it no longer works correctly with current version of the MaxMind data files and the old MaxMind plugin inside Revive Adserver (also deprecated). We offer a download link for v1.0.0 for educational purposes however:
