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.
