TS Business Hours

Description

TSBusinessDay class with functions used for restricting content based on hours of operation. Supports hours that run past midnight. Will eventually develop into full-fledged plugin, but thanks to Elliot Condon, I don’t have to just yet!

Dependencies

This function requires the Advanced Custom Fields plugin and some of its add-ons. They are as follows:

The Repeater Field and Options page are premium add-ons. If you are already using them, you understand how invaluable they are. If not, there’s no better time to start!

Installation

  1. Make sure you have all of the required dependencies.
  2. Download the ts-business-hours directory and copy it to wp-content/plugins.
  3. Activate the plugin on the Plugins page.
  4. Navigate to the Options page. Configure days and hours. You must have both opening and closing times.
  5. You must start the week on Sunday and end it on Saturday for the plugin to work correctly. This is because the plugin uses the date(‘w’) function.
  6. See example.php and use accordingly.

Notes

I ran into an issue when working locally, which was that I had to wait until the turn of a minute to see my changes to the template file reflected live. I’m not sure why that is and would love to hear suggestions!

FAQ

Can I use isOpen() to restrict content within a blog post?

You cannot use a PHP function in a WYSIWYG editor. Shortcodes provide this functionality. Shortcode support for this plugin is on the way!
