The Timed Content plugin allows users to specify that a portion of a Page or Post should appear/be visible or disappear/be invisible based on given time characteristics. Suppose, for example, you embed a video into a Post; once the viewer has enough information from the video, the request to take a specific action can be set to appear. You can also make portions of a Post or Page be visible at certain dates and times; you can even set up a schedule!
The plugin adds the following:
- A "client-side" shortcode that allows the marking of content to appear or disappear after a given time interval; a "fade" effect is included. This functionality is intended to be used for special effects only, as content marked in this manner is still visible in the HTML source and, therefore, not a secure method of hiding content.
- Two "server-side" shortcodes that allow the marking of content to be visible only during specified date/time intervals. This functionality can be used as a secure method of hiding content, because the marked content will be included in the Page/Post only when viewed in the specified date/time intervals.
A TinyMCE dialog is included to help users build the shortcodes. See the Screenshots tab for more info.
An example showing use of the
[timed-content-client]shortcode. The "alarm clock" button on the editor menubar brings up a dialog box to help build the Timed Content shortcodes. All of the Admin-side screenshots are from WordPress 3.7, but the functionality is the same for 3.8.
An example showing use of the
true. You'll only see it if you're logged in and it's on a Page/Post you can edit (Your regular visitors won't see this at all).
The "Add Timed Content shortcode" dialog showing the Client tab. Check the attribute you want to add and fill in the textboxes.
The "Add Timed Content shortcode" dialog showing the Server tab. Check the attribute you want to add, then click on the Date and Time textboxes.
The date and time pickers help you format a correct date and time. Here's the jQuery UI Datepicker in action.
The "Add Timed Content shortcode" dialog showing the Timed Content Rules tab.
You can use both shortcodes together and with other shortcodes supported by your WordPress installation.
The Timed Content Rules overview page. Timed Content Rules allow you to set up a schedule for showing/hiding your content.

Check the Scheduled Dates/Times to verify when your rule will be active.
