[resolved] 13 week cycle, bandwidth (3 posts)

    Hi there,
    We have a tv show with 13 episodes, one episode a week.
    We would like our website to automatically publish the promo for the upcoming show for the whole week (a banner and video)...then get replaced the next week..and so on..

    The problem arises when we want the 13 weeks to repeat...
    Is it possible to use ondate and offdate twice in the shortcode?
    example: [timed ondate="20130331" offdate="20130406" ondate="20130501" offdate="20130507"]

    Also, does the browser actually load the 'expired' code still, then hide it? Is hiding 12 (of the 13) episode promos a good idea in terms of bandwidth/load time?

    Thank you.

    No the expired code won't be loaded. Unfortunately, you can't use multiple on and off dates. I'd recommend repeating the videos within 2 sets of shortcodes instead.
