We are testing new ad formats to allow for a wider variety of sponsors to support WordPress news, and to provide affordable options for small businesses to advertise via classfieds.

Sponsor Ads

Each issue of The Repository will contain one Sponsor Ad, right below the news section, as well as the text “Together with company name” below The Repository’s logo at the top of the newsletter.

Sponsor Ads comprise:

– Main title: 2–5 short words (may be edited)
Description: The description of your product or service (420 characters max) including links
Image: An 800 by 800 pixel image. The image should not contain text that competes with the description. Simple photos or illustrations work best.
– Background color using your brand colors.

Sponsor Ads can be booked as standalone ads or in multiples over several weeks.

Classified Ads

Each issue of The Repository will contain four short, text-based classified ads in the bottom section of the newsletter. Classifieds are limited to 180 characters of plain text and one link.

Classified Ads can be booked as standalone ads or in multiples over several weeks.
