    Hi.
    There is a big limitation in this plugin:
    – Selection SHOW or HIDE, all conditionals are based in this rule

    But a lot of users needs more customization, like:
    SHOW element if PAGE are PAGES – AND – HIDE element if PAGE is XXXXXX

    Actually, user can choose one state (SHOW or HIDE), and all conditions are applied to this.

    Any improve of this function, just like other similar plugins?

    I’m not sure I understand; If you want to show an element only on specific pages, you could add multiple rules to select all the pages where you want the widget to be displayed. By default, the widget won’t appear on any of the other pages.

    Does that make sense? Are you thinking of a specific case I’m missing here?

    Thanks!

    Yes, but for example:

    When I activate visibility, I can choose SHOW or HIDE. Next, every condition are grouped in the same selection.

    Imagine this scenario:
    SHOW if CATEGORY is XXXXX
    but
    HIDE if TAG is YYYYY

    I can’t use this, because all conditions are grouped in the same selection, SHOW or HIDE.
    Do you understand me? Sorry, my bad english…

    Alright, I understand this example. It makes sense. I created a trac ticket about your suggestion, and we’ll consider it for a future Jetpack update.

    Thanks!
