i have to refresh to show the new content? or its dynamic

Good Questions! Yes you would have to refresh the page to see new content.

It uses the date and time from your Wordpress site when a page is loaded. So it will only show or hide a Row or Inner Row based on your Wordpress site’s date/time and Timezone. When a page is loaded it looks at the date and time then uses that to decide if the html for that Row or Inner Row should be shown or hidden.

Hello,

presale question.

What is with row or column once time runs out. Its hiden on frontend, but on backend i can still see it and reactivate, or is deleted once time runs out?

Regards,

M

Great Question! it is just hidden and can be reactivated at any time.

A Row or Inner Row is never deleted it is just not shown on the frontend. The way it works is that it will hide the row from visitors to your site and in previews when set to not show, however you will always be able to see it on the backend (admin/edit). This means if you wanted to show a row again later on you could just change the settings to show it again whenever you want.

It’s also worth noting that you can only apply this to Rows and Inner Rows.

So if you wanted to hide a column the easiest thing to do is make a copy of the row and remove the column you want to hide. When you want to hide that column you would show the row that you removed it from and hide the row that still has it. When you want to show the column again you can just show the row that has it and hide the one that doesn’t.

I bought it, I installed it, but can’t see anything on any row…

Ignore previous message plz. Problem solved :)

katiazev,

Glad to hear you got it figured out if you have any more issues please let me know.

Hi there, awesome plugin! One problem for me, after installing and configuration, I made 2 identical rows, one for today and the other for tomorrow. The dates are set correctly, but It still shows these 2 rows on the frontpage. While one should be hided and shown after tonight. I tried several options, but all with the same result. What could it be?

Most of the time this has to do with the timezone settings for your Wordpress site. The plugin goes off the date & time settings for your Wordpress install and not your local computer. You can change the timezone by going to Settings->General then scroll down to the timezone option. It will also tell you what your Wordpress install shows as the current date and time. This is most likely why you are having this issue.

Looks great, but i don’t seem to see it under the row settings. Is there something i’m missing. Using the7 theme. Thanks.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble. This may be something we need to look at on your site specifically. If you go to the “support” tab and then click the “contact author” button it will allow you to email us directly. Please let us know your Wordpress version, Theme and any other details that may help us to diagnose the problem.

Would be great to show content by weekday.

Thank you for the great suggestion. This is something we have looked at adding in a future version of the plugin. Not sure how soon we will implement that feature, but it is definitely something we are looking into.

Is it possible to display a message depending on the time of day? Like: Good morning (between 7am and 12) Good lunch (between 12am and 1am) ect ..?

At this point it’s not, but at some point this may be added

Please, is it possible to schedule the plugin to display a content, every day at 01am to 03am…. (repeat everyday) thank you

Right now that is not something that you can do with the plugin. This is something that may be added later on.

Hi, just bought the plugin. Can’t get it to work starting/ending a specific row. Maybe because of FASTEST CACHE and CDN? I works when I delete cache manually – how to solve? Br, Henrik

Using THE7 theme and WP 4.8.

This most likely has to do with the page being cached without the content. If you can please email us we can do more support work with you there. What cdn are you using? How often is the caching refreshed?

Hello, i need hide a content for 10min. So every time someone goes to the page, after 10min the rows appears. Thats is possible with this plugin? Because i only saw a date base on the printscreen. Thanks.

We have done this for customers in the past, however this specific plugin doesn’t do that. It is something that would most likely need to be done with Javascript. If you are interested we can create a custom plugin that would do just that. If you are interested please message us directly

Hi, it works with latest VC 5.4.5 and Wordpress version 4.9.1?

Yes it works fine

Hi! I just installed it and when I click in the Date field the datepicker is not loaded. I get the following error in the console: Uncaught TypeError: Failed to execute ‘getComputedStyle’ on ‘Window’: parameter 1 is not of type ‘Element’. at jquery.datetimepicker.min.js:2587 at forEachAncestorOf (jquery.datetimepicker.min.js:2531) at setPos (jquery.datetimepicker.min.js:2586) at dispatch (load-scripts.php:3) at r.handle (load-scripts.php:3)

This is most likely a conflict with another plugin you have installed. If you contact us privately and provide access to take a look we can see where the conflict is and get it taken care of for you.

Hi,

I just installed on my wordpress, when I go to plugins, it does not show up.

If it isn’t showing up in your plugins there are a few things you need to look at. First is the plugins directory for wordpress. You need to check and make sure the folder for the plugin is there and permission are correct. This is the most likely cause of your issue. If the folder for the plugin isn’t in the plugins directory for you wordpress install then something went wrong with installation. You can manually upload the zip file to the plugins directory and extract the folder. If you are still having issues after going through those steps there is most likely something wrong with your Wordpress install. At that point please contact us on a private channel so we can help you workout what is keeping it from showing up.

Stopped showing up on visual composer tabs after installing WP ACF-VC Bridge plugin! Please help. Thanks.

This is most likely a conflict or issue with the way you have your wordpress install setup. If you can please contact us via a private channel and provide access to the install we will be more than happy to investigate it for you.

I am trying to hide a current row, and it is not working. I am using the “Show After” and using the date of 4/15/2018 at 11:00am, and it is not working. The row is still live. I have tried deleting cache, etc, but it is not working, please help!

I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble with our plugin. Normally when we see this it is a timezone and date/time issue. The first step would be to go into the timezone and date settings for you site and make sure they are correct.

If that doesn’t resolve your issue we will need you to please send an email with the login information for your site so we further investigate the issue for you.

There’s a new version out. I can’t find any changelog..?

Great question! The change log is located at the very bottom of the documentation file included with the complete download.

Version 1.2 is a refinement release. It increases compatibility with themes that make changes to Visual Composer and addresses some minor conflicts we have seen with other plugins. We highly recommend updating to this latest version as soon as possible.
