very good job, nice i’m excited to see more of your work and wish you all the best for your sales !
first of all, a really nice looking business-hours plugin u made.
1. I saw in the demo the business-hours-data-fields, is it possible to show 2 periods of times for a day? We have a break where we are not reachable:
09:00 – 12:00 / 13:00 – 18:00
2. Is the calender-icon changable or is the svg inside the plugin code?
Hello Steve, I am glad you liked the plugin.
At the moment it is not possible to add more than one time period for a single day, I will see if I can add this feature in future releases.
Also the calendar image is svg inside the plugin and because I allow the user to change the color, there is a function which changes the svg color on the fly.
I am working on the next release now and I am implementing a feature where the user is able to upload a header image. If you have any feature requests, I will be more than happy to see if I can implement them in future releases.
Thank you again
bought to support ur work : )
Maybe you can implement some icon librarys (font awesome, fontello, etc.) to display another icons, too.
I wish u good sales and a great rest of the week,
Thank you I really appreciate your support.
Have a wonderful day.
Hello Steve, I just want to confirm that I have implemented the Font Awesome icon and you will have the option to replace the existing calendar image with any icons from Font Awesome library this will be released in version 1.1.0
Hi there, nice work with this. Can I ask is it possible to display just the calendar panel with today’s opening hours and change text to ‘Appointments available today’. Is there a countdown to closing time too, for example “You have 3 hours until appointments close”.. Thanks
Hello, thank you for your interest in this widget.
If you want to hide Today’s date in the header, you can simply select same color for header background and text color.
To add a text “Appointments available today” why not use the widget title?
Currently there is no countdown option, but I can certainly consider this option for future releases if that is something you would like to see in the widget.
Hi thanks for reply, its very nice I think it may be nice to have the countdown until ‘closing’ but just my opinion.
Hello again, I just want to confirm that I have implemented the countdown option and it will be available in version 1.1.0. You will have the option to display a counter for opening and closing hours. Ex: “Sorry, We are currently closed! But we are opening in 1 hr 5 min 30 sec”.
I hope this is what you were looking for
Thanks, great support. Will keep checking back to see its release
Hi there, Nice work! I have a presales question. Is it possible to configure different openinghours widgets? I am working on a group website for 4 restaurants, each with a different openinghours schema. (I see the shortcode uses an id ). Thanks!
Hello, you can have multiple widgets with different time, colors and messages. For example, in the demo you can see that I have one widget which has opening hours from 8 to 11 and one widget from 8 to 4. Hope that helps
Great! It works! Thanks
@hcroeze I am glad you liked the plugin if you find the plugin useful I would really appreciate if you leave a review. Thank you
Broke my site when activated…
Hello, I am very sorry that you had problem when activating the plugin, may I know what is the error that you are getting? hopefully we can resolve your issue as soon as possible, thanks
@Nasan, did you resolve your issue? please let me know if you still have problems. Thanks
This Is it possible to display Open From 10:00 to 02:00 ?
Hello, can you specify PM and AM in your example? the plugin uses 12 hr time format, if you look at the screenshots, you can see that we can set the start time at 10:00 AM and end time at 2:00 PM for a particular day.

Hello, I am sorry that you had trouble with the plugin, I will do my best to resolve your issue as soon as possible.
Does the error occurs after you upload the plugin or after you activate the plugin? It appears that the error is related to HTML encoding (using Google Translation from German to English). Does the error give you a line number or file name?
@hamburg_de, did you resolve your issue? if you are still having problems please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thanks
Hello MrBeaver, not solved yet.
The issue is linked with the plugin.php file in …/wp-admin/plugins.php.
No specific row is highlited.
Solved it. Just changed PHP to 7 and now it works.
I am glad you have resolved the issue, have a wonderful day
Hey Mr.Beaver, do you have a po-file for translation in german?
Hello, there are translatable language files in ‘languages’ folder but I don’t have a German language file. You can translate the plugin to German using the provided po file. Please let me know if that helped, thank you.
great plugin for showing the business hours. Thanks for this one.
I am trying to translate the plugin into german, but the translation wont show.
The files are named “advanced-business-hours-de_DE.*” and located in the */language/plugins/ folder.
Any suggestions why it wont work?
Thanks in regards,
Janos from hamburg.de
Hello, thank you for bringing this to my attention. I tested locally and I found that language files are not loading properly. I will fix the issue and update the plugin as soon as possible. Thank you again.
Just wanted to let you know that I submitted an update, you will receive a notification once the update is approved. I also added German translation files (translated via Google Translate).
Thanks a lot!!! Monday morning and happy!
Does this allow you to restrict adding products to the cart when the shop is closed?
Hi there, do you mean like WooCommerce? unfortunately there is no option to allow users to disable shopping cart when closed. I will take a look and maybe add this feature in future releases. Hope that helps
Hello I just purchase your plug in and I’m having issues with it. I put it on a wordpress site on plug ins page as a zip file and it crashes my site. It’s giving me this message >Parse error: syntax error,unexpected ’||’ (T_BOOLEAN_OR), expecting’)’ www.mfsquad.com/wp-content/plugins/advanced-business-hours/functions.php on line 253
Hello, may I know what PHP version you are using? WordPress recommends PHP 7 or greater ( https://wordpress.org/about/requirements/ ). Thank you
I check and I’m running php 5.4 on go daddy server. I spoke with them about setting up php 7 but I would need a different platform, or if you know a better way, as I’m new to all of this. Thank you
can you please create a user with special privileges (editing plugins or just administrator) and send me the credentials through the contact forum of my profile page? thanks
Hello, love the look and feel of your widget, I’ll probably buy regardless of the answer but is there a method to deal with holidays or a suggestion you could offer using this widget to deal with them?
Hello MJ, I am glad you like the widget currently there is no option to add holidays; however, you can insert text after the widget for special occasions and mention the business hours during holidays. Hope this answer your question. Thanks
I came through google on your advanced business hours plugin. I wanted to ask you.
Is it possible to set these 2 things in a header widget.
1-When we are open, a message of my choosing and a shortcode it dynamically shows the opening hours of the day.
2- when we are closed, to be able to tell that we are closed and to show the next opening day/time
This off course all needs to go automatically.
Hope to hear from you
Thank you for your comment, I try my best to address your questions:
1) by the header you mean the space where the calendar and today’s date is showing? you can set a custom message at the bottom of the widget for closing/opening hours. So in the demo instead of “Sorry, we are currently closed” / “We are currently open” you can have your own custom messages.
2) you can setup a counter if you have 1 set of time per day (for example 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM), then at the bottom of the widget you will see something like this “sorry we are closed but we are opening in 2 h 30 min ..”
please take a look at the live demo where I tried to include different options in different widgets (including custom messages and count down during opening and closing hours)
hope that answer all your questions, thank you
Hello Mr Beaver,
Thanks for the reply.
Sorry, i meant headerwidget of my website theme.
You can see eco.primemedia.nl, and then in the top right corner, next to the green button.
I want to be able when we are open today, to place the message:
We are open today from 09:00 – 18:00
When we are closed, i want it to say(for exmaple):
We are closed now. We open
Saturday 09:00 till 18:00
Thats all actually. I saw in your demo it is possible to say we are open today and then place the opening hours. But i didn’t see the part, when you are closed, where you can mention the name of the day and time of the next opening hours.
Please check one comment above this one.
I just bought your plugin. It just looks the best as far as what i’ve seen. I really just hope it is/will be possible to automatically show the next opening day and hour when the shop is closed, instead of the countdown timer.
Hello Karim, I am glad you liked the plugin. I can add your request to features suggestion for future implementation. I constantly change the plugin to add features requested by users and in the upcoming releases I will give users the option to display only the current hours and next opening hours. Please dont hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions. Thanks
Nice, that really would be awesome.
Ps: I am trying to set up the times, but even though i filled in the opening hours in the right format, it keeps saying i am closed. I am still trying to figure it out though
The plugin uses WordPress default time zone, to make sure you have the correct time zone, please go to Settings->General and under Timezone select the appropriate time zone.
As usual, you can also access the plugin documentation here: http://dolatabadi.github.io/docs/abh-docs/site/configure/
I set my timezone to Amsterdam. Is this what is causing the issue? Where can i find in documentation how to set the standard wordpress timesettings?
Can you please create a WordPress user for me and email me the credential so I can setup the plugin for you? you can email me using the email provided in the support tab of the plugin or using my codecanyon profile page.
I sent you. You are awesome, thanks:)
Hi, i´ve got a presales question. Is the plugin using PHP to update itself (opening, closing, current day, etc.)? Means, is the plugin compatible with caching a site? At the moment i am using another plugin and it does not work with caching – it update itself only if i am clearing the cache. Thanks
Hello, thank you for your interest in this plugin. Yes, this plugin uses PHP to check for current status and to update closing/opening messages. The data is cached; however, if you use the plugin in a contact page, you can exclude the page from caching. May I know what cache plugin you use? thanks
Hi, thanks for the reply. The thing is that i want to use the plugin on the homepage and even in the footer. And i don´t want to leave Home out of caching.
I am using the plugin WP Rocket for caching and i am very happy with it.
okay, I am planning to release an update at the end of April which includes several feature requests. I will see if I can make it work with cache plugins. You can also email me directly and I will notify you about the release. Thanks
@junklih just wanted to let you know that Advanced Business Hours is now compatible with cache plugins – the update (version 1.6.0) will be released at the end of April. Thank you for your suggestion.
Hi, that´s gerat news. I´ll check the new version out for my next project.
I use this plugin it’s very good but when i want put short code in Pages or Post show me Error Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by
Please help Me Step by Step
Hello Obalit, can you please provide the link where it gives you this error? if you want to keep your link private, you can use the message box on my profile to contact me via email. Thanks
Hi. I’m thinking on buy this plugin because I’m using other one that isn’t working well, but I have a question. Is possible to add irregular openings? Our company is an amusement park so we don’t open the entire year and also we don’t open all the days with the same schedule, so I would like to add the schedule for single dates. For example, on april 15th, we open from 18h to 0h. Also I wanted to know if I can put the 24h format, instead of 12h.
Hi, thank you for your message. Unfortunately it is not possible to add specific hours for single day of the month like you mentioned. You have the option to add hours for the entire week. Currently you can only display hours in 12 hr format but I had another request to allow users to display using 24 hr, so I added it to road map for possible future implementation. I hope that answered all your questions, thanks.
Okay, thank you.
You are more than welcome
Is there any way to just remove Sat/Sun? I’m using the the widget for two locations and they alternate being open on Saturdays. Rather than list that both are open or closed, I would rather just remove those days from the schedule and place that information below the widget..
Also, any way to show that a location is “closed for lunch” during specific times?
Finally, I saw that in the next update there will be the ability to “hide today’s hours when closed” .. is it possible to hide the hours when open as well? So, it will just display “Open Today”?
Thanks so much.. I love the design of this plugin.
Hello TinaKelly, I am glad you like the plugin. Currently there is no option to hide Sat/Sun hours. However, I constantly implement feature requests and I can add the option to hide the weekend.
Also, to display a note, you can use “after widget” section to mention that the business is on a lunch break during certain hours every day.
To “hide today’s hours when closed” was a feature request I received last month, I can add the option to hide hours when open as well. I just never thought of it
