A simple show scheduled WordPress text in post plugin entitled “Before and After” by Jacob Fresco handles this job in a simple, functional way. It’s not editor or panel driven, so you need to be comfortable placing tags in the WordPress editor.
Some Ideas for Usage of This Timed Content Display Plugin
- Concert Dates With Future Dates Known Yet Not Released
- To “Roll Off” Past Dates and Keep a Schedule Clean
- Information Pertinant to the Date of an Event
- Discount Code Made Available Only On a Specific Date(s)
<BEFORE YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM>Text</BEFORE>
<AFTER YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM>Text</AFTER>
To Get a Better Idea
<ON 2011-10-02>This should only when the current date is Oct 2</ON>
<BEFORE 2011-10-01 17:00>Shows until set date of Oct 1</BEFORE>
<AFTER 2011-10-02 17:00>Shows After 5pm on Oct 2</AFTER>
There are more examples of combinations that work and some that won’t on the plugin page. The script logic is pretty simple. To get a good feel for how the date ranges work, it’s best to do a test post with pinging turned off if you are live publishing, although, tests work in the draft environment as well, although, it takes a few tries to understand how the clock works.
The front end and source elements end up very clean for those items not displayed.
