Using conditionals with time. Is that possible?

Using conditional shortcodes can be so versatile for many things, however, I don’t know if there is a way to write a conditional shorcode relating to time. For example, display a certain content only after a certain date/time; or display it only until a certain time; etc.

As an example, I am planning an activity on my site where a specific image has to be found to get a hint. The activity lasts only 3 days, so I would like to have those images (there are a dozen) only available for the specific days of the event and then “disappear” automatically.

So far, I have done all the work manually, adding images to pages and posts right before midnight, then, go back to all the pages/posts to remove then after the deadline. I think it would be great if it could be automated.

If it is not available now, maybe it could be a new feature (on your looooong to-do list of ideas).

There’s a free plugin I use for that purpose.

I am not related to them but the plugin works pretty well.



Oh, thanks!!! That must be very useful!

I really like it, very much. You can schedule any content etc. It’s very versatile and FREE. :grin:

I like the price and like that it is updated (too many plugins get abandoned :frowning: )

Oh, just remembered to tell you it’s ok to use certain plugins that don’t receive updates, if they’re simple enough. Not ideal, of course, but sometimes you might need one for a very specific reason (avoid them as much as possible but it’s sometimes okay).

Yeah, but not being a programmer myself, I can’t tell the difference :slight_smile:
