I'm not very tech saavy & don't follow all of this completely.  I simply sent your first quote to our tech guy and he did it. Afterward, GoDaddy said we needed to contact TownNews & have wdnz.com added to our SSL certificate for it not to show as insecure.  To which TN responded "if you are wanting to pursue this route our systems team who handles the SSL Certificates said that because you are doing this from an iframe we would not be able to provide the SSL certificate. This is because in order to provide the certificate we would need DNS pointed at us."  I asked if they knew another way that didn't involve the SSL certificate problem & the reply was "Townnews does not support domain masking nor iframe solutions. This relates to SEO and also how allowing iframes can let non customers take customer pages and literally display them as their own for ad revenue."

As followup: After doing this the browser was saying the site was not secure.  In trying to get that changed I was told "Townnews does not support domain masking nor iframe solutions. This relates to SEO and also how allowing iframes can let non customers take customer pages and literally display them as their own for ad revenue."

So we are reevaluating whether to do this.  But, haven't heard of another way to solve the issue.

Got another request for finding out how many views on an article.  Like the other I tried after installing the app, it can't tell me anything for the page today.

Thanks, I've downloaded Chrome & added it to try.  All the reviews seem to say it doesn't work though.  And, I would still prefer the "view stats" button on an asset so that I don't have to use Chrome & would have a complete info on an asset that might appear on different pages at different times etc.

Reporters often ask me about impressions on their articles and there is not an easy way to figure it out unless it happens to be among the most popular.  We would love this capability, though not for reader viewing as much as internal information - like the view stats button on banner ads.

We have been hoping to move to TotalCMS asap. But, this would also be a significant negative for us. Enough so that we might postpone switching until this feature works.

We have the same issue, if I'm reading the request correctly.  I can set reports to send daily/weekly/monthly, but I can not set them to end when the ad expires.  Unfortunately, not only does the report not end, it begins sending them a report of ALL our ads instead of a blank one when there is not info available about the expired ad.
