Hi, Is it possible with custom modification to make this display alternate content when a specific link is accessed? More exactly, I’ve added a endpoint function like this:
function wpa121567_rewrite_endpoints(){

    add_rewrite_endpoint( 'comments', EP_PERMALINK );

    add_rewrite_endpoint( 'stats', EP_PERMALINK );

}

add_action( 'init', 'wpa121567_rewrite_endpoints' );

So when I’m accessing www.mywebsite.com/mypost/comments I want to display the alternate content.

Can you modify this plugin to work like this ? This will be great! Thank you !

JoeMC

You should be able to do this yoursef by overriding the action in the plugin. The current add is:

function mtphr_atc_content( $content ) {

if( $atc_content = mtphr_atc_enabled() ) {
    return $atc_content;
} else {
    return $content;
}
}
add_filter( 'the_content', 'mtphr_atc_content', 1 );

So, you could do something like:

function mpa121567_atc_content( $content ) {

if( $comment_link && $atc_content = mtphr_atc_enabled() ) {
    return $atc_content;
} else {
    return $content;
}
}
remove_filter( 'the_content', 'mtphr_atc_content', 1 );
add_filter( 'the_content', 'mpa121567_atc_content', 1 );

I actually had never hear of the add_rewrite_endpoint function, so I’m not exactly sure how it works… but, you’d have to add some logic to test for the link and only display the alternate content when that is true.

I saw that this plugin doesn’t work with the default Wordpress text widget.

Any plans on this in the future?

I want to rotate a banner in the sidebar based on this plugin (Different times, days, etc.).

It seems cumbersome to make a post with each banner and try yo show that in the sidebar.

JoeMC

I’ll make note of it, as it’s possible I may work on something like this.

I’ll but the first copy. ;-)

Thanks!

Hey, quick question. Can the plugin be set to local time, as opposed to server time? Or does it already run off of local time? Thanks!

JoeMC

There is not a setting for this, but it is built to work off of the local time.

Can this be configured to work with “local time” rather than “server time”? For example, can I set it up to “know” that it’s “morning,” wherever in the world someone accesses the site from?

JoeMC

There is not a setting for this, but it is built to work off of the local time.

Ha! n1kester is on my team, and we asked the same question at the same time. Obviously, we’re interested in this sweet plugin. :-)

Can I use it to control/swap layersliders on a page? This looks like a great plugin. I just need to know that before I purchase.

Thanks

Default-user

Thanks, Joe. I’m not using the layerslider via shortcode, it’s within the avada theme. Any support there?

JoeMC

No, this plugin only swaps out content that is added with the main post/page editor. Sorry.

Default-user

No sweat. Thanks for the support. I think I should be able to circumvent it via shortcode.

does it support wordpress v3.8 – wordpress v3.8.1

JoeMC

Yes, it does.

Hello, I have some pre-sale questions: 1) Is “custom post types” supported? 2) Can you have unlimited or repeating alternate content based on either monthly, weekly, etc. ? 3) does this plugin swaps out content in its entirety including shortcodes, forms, comments, etc. ? 4) any restrictions on plugins or themes? Thanks!

JoeMC
  1. Yes, any post type that uses WP’s normal content editor is supported.
  2. You can have unlimited amount of alternate content, but only based on a combination of: Dates (a date range on the calendar) including times of the day for these dates, Days of the Week (a range of days, Monday-Thursday, Wed.-Monay, etc…) times of the day for the selected days, or Daily (a specific timeframe every day).
  3. It only swaps out the content that is included in the Editor. If you have shortcodes in the editor those will be swapped out. No custom fields, comments, or any other external content will be swapped out.
  4. The only conflict I know of is the Visual Composer plugin. I have not had time to look into this plugin, but I’m assuming it creates it’s own way of adding content to the site and bypasses the normal editor… so, I’d assume any other similar type of plugin will have the same issues.

Do you have this script as an open source so we can add it to our website if it’s a self scripted site not using word press or any of the other 3rd party plugins?

JoeMC

No, it is only built as a WordPress plugin.

Hi JoeMC, I have a pre-sales question: our website has a small section in the home page with a JWPlayer for a live broadcast that only happens on Sunday mornings. I just want to make sure that your plugin is able to replace that section during the week with some other content, and then bring it back automatically at the appointed time.

Another question: we use Visual Composer. Do you know if the plugin will work by placing it inside a RAW html are in VC? Or, can I go back to default editor, insert the plugin code or shorcode and then go back to VC? I mean, have you tried it?

Thank you, I look forward to your reply,

Daniel

JoeMC

I have never worked with Visual Composer, but based on previous user feedback, I think there have been issues with implementing it using VC.

As for your JWPlayer, it would have to be added within the main WP content area, but yes, it could do what you say… though, I would put your JWPlayer as the alternate content to display once a week as opposed to the other way around.

My plugin just uses the “the_content” filter of WordPress and replaces the content based on the date/day filters you have setup in Alternate Timed Content.

danielsami

Thanks, I just purchased it, so far it works well with Visual Composer, drop me a line in my profile email if you want to test it with VC in my installation,but to me it’s a non issue.

JoeMC

Cool. That’s good to know! Let me know if you do run into any issues, and if so, then I’ll take a look at your install.

Hi Joe,

This plugin seems pretty cool. I’ve been looking for something I can use that allows the scheduling of posts (for example, show certain posts Monday through Friday during regular business hours 8:00am to 5:00pm, and show other posts during nights and weekends.) This seems like it may do the trick.

My question (and forgive me if this sounds n00bish): Does scheduling work on an entire post (such as title, the_content, any advanced custom fields), or is it simply intended to schedule the_content within a post?

Thanks!

JoeMC

From your description of what you want, this plugin won’t accomplish it. This is built to swap out the main content of pages or posts based on a particular schedule. It wouldn’t be able to select specific posts to display in an archive, or swap any other info for a page/post that isn’t the main content.

If you manually add links to posts in the main content, you would be able to do this, but there isn’t any way to auto generate an archive of specific posts like a normal post archive page.

Dear, I have MENU on version mobile compatibilty probleme with theme http://themeforest.net/item/muse-music-band-responsive-wordpress-theme/4224216

The menu of theme dont open when I install Alternate plugin :(

JoeMC

I am seeing a javascript error on your site, which is most likely the cause of your issue.

Uncaught TypeError: undefined is not a function (index):989

Which points to this code:

<script>var usquare_plugin_url="http://www.radiokif.be/wp-content/plugins/usquare/"; (function($){ $(document).ready( function() { if ($("#usquare_10").length) { $("#usquare_10").uSquare({ opening_speed: 440, closing_speed: 500, easing: "swing", grayscale: 1, push_content_below: 0 }); } }); })(jQuery);</script>

So, it looks like the issue is stemming from a plugin called “usquare” or something like that…

I’m not sure why activating/de-activating the ATC plugin would effect this… The plugin won’t effect the front end of your site at all if the alternate content is not active, and if it is, the only thing it does is swap out the main page content… So, I guess if you have javascript added to the main content, or some element that your javascript is looking for and you are currently using the alternated content you could run into issues since that element is no longer displaying. But, other than that there is no javascript used at all on the front end that could cause a javascript error.

What happens if you disable the usquare plugin and have the ATC plugin active?

WIKI-design

Dear, U have right, Usquare affect my website and not ATC, I solve it my thanks your the best

JoeMC

You’re welcome! Thanks for your purchase!

Hi, bought your plugin by there’s a little red Disabled sign top right of the Alternate Content screen which I can’t figure out how to Enable.

What am I missing?

JoeMC

That is actually not a button, it is just a label letting you know whether or not the alternate content is being shown or not. To enable the alternate content just check the “Enable” box. If that is checked and the current time resides in the timeframe you set to display the alternate content, then that label will change the “Enabled” to let you know the alternate content is currently being displayed on the front end.

Thanks for your reply.

I understand what you’re saying, however, to test, I have just set the “Start Daily” time to 5.30 am and checked the Enable box. It is currently 6.18 am local time.

By what you’re saying here, the Disabled label should have changed to Enabled and the alternate content should be showing on the site.

It is not. It still shows the red Disabled label and the original (non-alternate) text is visible on the site.

JoeMC

Is your timezone set for your site? (Dashboard > Settings > General Settings)

I am building a site for a television network, and need a plugin that will change daily with the main shows airing during prime times. Around 6 images that would need to change everyday at midnight.

Also, would this work with images that would be used in a carousal slider? And lastly, for the ongoing schedule, could I have this change every 30 minutes?

JoeMC

Yes, this would work to change content daily at specific times. You can also choose specific timeframes within the days to show different content, so if you want it to change every 30 minutes you would just need to make multiple alternate contents for the page/post and set the timeframes.

As for the carousal slider, this would not change images within the slider. This plugin only swaps out the main content of a page or post. If your sliders are displayed through shortcodes, you could create multiple sliders and include their corresponding shortcodes within the alternate content. This would end up loading a completely different slider when the alternate content is active.

This is a great plugin! Does just what I needed (display a post on a specific day of each week). Cheers!
