Support » Plugin: Dynamic Visibility for Elementor » Server Time and WordPress time don’t match

    Here’s what I’m trying to accomplish:

    Display widget #1 from 10:30 Sunday morning until 09:30 Friday morning.
    Display widget #2 (in it’s place) from 09:30 Friday morning to 10:30 Sunday morning.

    I think I’ll have to use 4 widgets to do this by using a unique one for Friday and Sunday. So I have to be careful with the times. However, I’m getting an alert:

    ATTENTION

    Server time and WordPress time are different.
    Will be used the WordPress time you set in WordPress General preferences.

    SERVER time:
    Mon, 27 Apr 2020 18:32:29 +0000

    WORDPRESS time:
    Mon, 27 Apr 2020 14:32:29 -0400

    here’s the thing. I checked and double checked that my server time matches my wordpress time. Could it be because I am running things through Cloudflare?

    Any ideas?

  • **UPDATE**

    Turns out, you can make things visible by ONE criteria ONLY. You can do a day of the week OR time of the day (every day). You can’t do both. I think what I was trying to do was too complicated for this plugin.

    I removed the plugin, put the live event from Vimeo in there and set it to start at 8AM Sunday-Friday and have it live from 8AM-10:30AM. Even though the event begins at 9AM on Sundays, it’s clearly stated on the screen when weekdays vs Sundays start.

    I think that’s the best I can expect. I’ve done a bunch of research and there’s no plug I’ve encountered that will allow you to make things visible at specific times AND days. If anyone knows of one, give me a shout but, at the time of writing this, I cannot seem to locate one.
