If Block — Visibility control for Blocks

Description

This block enables you to configure certain content to appear only if specified conditions are met (or be hidden) by setting different visibility rules.

You can add any Gutenberg block inside an if-block, have it render on the front-end of your site only if specified conditions are met. This block also provides an additional area (else-block) that can optionally display an alternative content in place when defined conditions are not met.

The conditional logic of this block supports both AND and OR operators in conjunction with filtering a specif user role and also detecting visitor’s browser software as well.

Installation

Minimum Requirements

  • PHP version 7.2 or greater.
  • MySQL version 5.6 or greater or MariaDB version 10.0 or greater.
  • WordPress version 5.0 or greater.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option — WordPress will handle the file transfer, and you won’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of the plugin, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu, and click “Add New.”

In the search field type “If Block”, then click “Search Plugins.” Once you’ve found the plugin, you can view details about it such as the point release, rating, and description. Click “Install Now,” and WordPress will take it from there.

Manual installation

The manual installation method requires downloading the plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favorite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Updating

Automatic updates should work smoothly, but we still recommend you back up your site.
