This is a super simple plugin which displays a full page welcome ad for visitors. I created this plugin out of necessity as I needed a welcome ad plugin that would adhere the new Google Ad Experience guidelines for interstitial ads. The requirements state that no content can be visible to a user before your interstitial appears, that means even if your content flashes for a split second before your ad shows your site will not pass.

Like the title of the plugin says, this is super simple. The welcome ad has only a few options, feel free to request new features and I can try to incorporate.

The welcome ad is designed to NOT show on mobile devices only Desktops.
