Control which snippets of content get displayed to your visitors based on Scheduling or Geo-Location.

Why can I only select Country (and not Region or City) for Geo-Location?

  • This plugin uses Maxmind's GeoIP database to identify your visitor's Geo-Location. To identify a Region or City, we'd need to use a different database which, zipped, takes up 18MB - just way too large for a WordPress Plugin.

Can I choose multiple conditions for a given snippet?

  • No, current functionality only allows a snippet to answer to a single scheduling rule OR to a single Geo-Location rule. A workaround is to create multiple snippets with the same content and different rules.

Can I embed snippets inside snippets?

  • Yes, you can. Just be careful not to create an infinite loop by assigning a group that contains the current snippet.

What about snippets in widgets?

  • That works, too - we turn on do_shortcodes() in widgets if it's not already turned on.

How do I control snippet positioning in a post or page?

  • Using WordPress' text editor, you can add whatever content or HTML that you want, including CSS. Wrap the shortcode in a div and use CSS to style your post however you prefer.

I'd like to extend the functionality. Will you do that?

  • Contact us to tell us what you need. We do plan to build a Premium add-on plugin which will offer the following:
    • Enable multiple control conditions of each type, and mix/match
    • Keep and show statistics of snippets being displayed
    • Optionally display snippets based on the visitor's local time
    • Optionally reload the snippet group after a given amount of time (say a visitor is watching a video, reload the snippet group after 3 minutes)
    • Enable Region and City scope
    • Use Maxmind GeoIP2 database, which is more accurate than the GeoIP
    • Allow overriding of snippet options via the shortcode attributes
    • Set up roles that can access the snippet administration
    • Add an icon to the TinyMCE interface as a shortcut to inserting the shortcode
    • Add a Snippet Group Widget
