Easy to use and versatile
The following screenshot shows you the interface of Periodical Widget Visibility Pro. You will find it in each widget after the plugin was activated.
After you have activated the plugin ‘Widget Visibility Time Scheduler’ you go to the page ‘Widgets’ in your WordPress backend. Under each widget you will find options which enables you to set the timed visibility of a widget explicitly.
By default no timed visibility is assigned with a widget. If you set the ‘Schedule’ option to ‘Show‘ or ‘Hide‘ the visibility time settings take effect.
Days of week
Activate the days of the week where the scheduled visibility should take effect.
Start time and end time of day
Set the start time and end time of the scheduled visibility for each day of the week.
Three types of periods: weeky, monthly, yearly
In each widget you can set one of three types of visibility periods: based on days in months, weekdays in months or a yearly period.
Visibility based on days in months
If you select the option ‘Days of months‘ you can select every day of a month, from 1 to 31, and every month of a year to control the visibility of the widget. Since the months can have 28, 29, 30 or 31 days but you want to use the last day of any month there is an extra option ‘last day‘ which picks the last day of a month regardless of the length of a month.
Visibility based on weekdays in months
The option ‘Weekdays of month‘ enables you to select every ordinal number, every day of a week, from Monday to Sunday, and every month of a year to control the visibility of the widget. If you want to pick the last weekday in every month take the option ‘last‘.
Visibility based on a period in every year
Do you want to show a widget every year on Christmas, Eastern, or hide it on your summer holidays? The option ‘Period in year‘ controls the visibility of a widget from your desired start day till the desired end day in the year.
Visibility based on a specified year
Since version 4.0 you can use the Year Filter to type in the year’s number in which the scheduler will be work. That way you can create multiple widgets for each year in the future. Once saved you can “forget” the new widgets.
After you have clicked on ‘Save‘ you can say: That’s it!
Compatibility with Jetpack
This plugin works perfectly with Jetpack’s “Widget Visibility” module. Both plugins enhance each other to give you great control about when and where to display which widget on your website.
