Shabbos and Yom Tov

Description

Automatically hide shopping cart or other content on Shabbos and Yom Tov and disply a message to the user. Alternately you can use it on your contact us page to display a message on Yom Tov.

The shortcode should be like [Shabbos_and_YomTov]Weekday content.[/Shabbos_and_YomTov]. See Attributes and Examples below.

This plugin will work according to your timezone that you set and not according to the users timezone (ie. a non-Jewish costomer can buy when it is Shabbos by him if by you it is not shabbos).

This plugin does not close your site on Shabbos, only the data enclosed in the shortcode. To close tour entire site for Shabbos use a plugin as WP-Shabbat. However it is possible to do so with this plugin by including the_content() in calling the Shabbos_and_YomTov() function, example: Shabbos_and_YomTov($atts, the_content()) (I did not test it but it should work), if you did not understand this sentence skip it).
