Seasonal Business Support:

First love your plugin works great and is nice and clean.

I am working on a website where the locations are open seasonally. It would be great if you could add support for this. For example one location is open Saturdays from May 13 to October 28.

Thanks for the great support

Hi there, I am glad you liked Advanced Business Hours plugin.

I constantly try to improve this plugin and implement new features, I would be more than happy to add this request after obtaining more information. I will send you an email to get your requirements and discuss this feature. Thank you.

Hi there, I just wanted to let you know that I have added seasonal support and it will be available in version 1.6.1 which is scheduled to be released on May 24.

Thank you.

I’m an agency and need this for several different businesses. Is it possible to have hours for different business using one domain?

Hi there, you can have multiple instance of the widget with different business hours; however, it uses the WordPress default timezone for hours.

So if all your businesses are within the same time zone you can use one WordPress installation, else, you have to use WordPress Multisite to set different timezones.

I am having an issues with this plugin recognizing times that we are open. it always says closed. I have checked the ajax box and that did not help. please advise.

Hi there, may I know if you have set the WordPress timezone to the correct timezone? also did you follow the time format? (ex: 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM)

Is it possible to send me your WordPress credentials? (you can contact me using the contact form on my profile page) .



The color options don’t seem to be working. I changed the color of the headers and text and it is not populating. Do you know what the problem could be?


Hi there, please see this question and if you still have issues, let me know, thanks.

Hi, I got an issue on my site using your plugin. When used as a shortcode, it doesn’t display a separator when there are two sets of hours (shop closed at midday). Can I give you credentials so that you can check ? Thanks

Hi there, I am very sorry to hear that you are facing an issue. I do my best to resolve your problem as soon as possible. Please send me an email with the credentials and the page where you are using the plugin’s shortcode. Thanks

I think I replicated this issue on my end too, when you check “display hours using 24 hour format” both time sets are in a single line.

To fix this issue, please add this custom css:

.abh-body .hours-data .pull-right {clear: right;}

Please dont hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions. Thank you

also please see this page for instructions on how to add custom style to WordPress themes:

I have installed the business hours into the footer of my theme. I’ve made sure the WP general settings reflect my time-zone (UTC+10), but it displays the wrong time – a day later. It is calling some other time zone. Where in the code can I find/fix this?

Hello, I am sorry to hear that. Is it possible to create a user for me and send me the credentials through my profile page to have a look? Thanks

sure – can you let me know an email to send this to, I dont want to post credentials on the forum! (sorry about the wait – time differences!)


first of all I want to thank you for this super easy plug-in. I am using this for a client who’s shop is open 1 sunday in the month, the other sundays he is closed. Is it possible to set this right in the widget? Or does my client have to change the opening hours on sunday everytime he is open on sunday?

I hope you understand my question. Best regards, Robin

Hello, I am glad you like the plugin :) , in your specific situation, I would suggest you use the holiday feature and add 12 days each representing the 1 sunday in a month.

Then you can have opening hours in that particular sunday with all other sundays in that month as closed.

You can check out this documentation on how to add holidays:

Please let me know if this addresses your question, thanks


I am receiving a 500 error on my website after activating the plugin on my website.

The website

Do you know what is causing this?

Thanks for the fast reply! At the moment, I am unable to open Wordpress because it is giving me a 500 error. Is there any other way that we can fix this? FTP?

yes, ftp access will work as well. please email me the info and will fix it asap :) thanks

okay I have fixed the issue on your website but as stated in my email, the php version on your site is 5.4.45. WordPress recommends PHP 7+ This plugin has been tested with version 5.6 and 7+. Please dont hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions. Thanks

Hi, i have a problem with the plugin. If i have a same day with different hours (morning and night) the hours are nos line spaced,this happend in desktop and mobile. can you check here


can you please send me your WordPress credentials through the contact form on my profile? also as stated in the documentation, you have to follow 12 hours time format, you have 16:00 PM which should be 4:00 PM, then select 24 hour format in the view tab. thanks

great! fixed

Installed plugin and I am getting error. Fatal error: Can’t use function return value in write context in /home/content/64/8971564/html/wp-content/plugins/advanced-business-hours/includes/widget.php on line 240

Hi there, I am sorry to hear that you faced an issue when installing this plugin. I think you are running an older version of PHP but we can certainly resolve the issue. Please email me your WordPress credentials and I will fix the issue asap for you. An other solution is to ask your hosting to update the PHP version on your server (WordPress recommends 7+).
