Content Time Management with WP Chrono

We have just published a new version of #WordPress #plugin called WPChrono. πŸ§

This is a small plugin which enables you to control content of your WordPress post in time (a.k.a. Content Dripping). 

WordPress already has a fantastic mechanism for publishing pages in future. 
You can define a future date/time for a post from the post edit panel just above the publish button. After this publish button will be changed into Schedule button.  Your post will be saved for future publishing, post_type field will be set by β€˜futureβ€˜ instead of β€˜publishβ€˜ .

This is fantastic option for publishing whole pages in future, but what happens if you want to publish some parts of the WordPress page in future?

For example, if you have page with several elements:

  • paragraph #1
  • paragraph #2
  • image
  • paragraph #3
  • voucher for your product (free or 50{8015e10338b3a7119e9a1b6a564b57a55d510a5647d857f8adbeaa4fee8e5a8d} discount)

In some cases you might want to have paragraph #1, image and free voucher to appear from 1st of December since 1st of January. After that, you might want to show paragraph #2 with combination of 50{8015e10338b3a7119e9a1b6a564b57a55d510a5647d857f8adbeaa4fee8e5a8d} voucher.

You might do something like this manually, which would take lots of time if you are managing multiple pages and you would have to do it in the exact time. On the other hand, by installing WP Chrono and using a simple shortcodes you could make predefined changes, which would apply on a specific time.

WP Chrono enables you to include CTM (Content Time Management) in your WordPress pages by using simple set of predefined (already programmed and tested) shortcodes.

When should you checkout this plugin?

  • If you are the owner of e-commerce service which changes offers (descriptions, prices) depending on time.
  • If you want to make some parts of your page visible in specific time periods.
  • If you need a simple countdown timer which provides some content afterwards.
