Show or hide Elementor widgets or sections based on various conditions like: User is logged in, User has a specific meta, The day is Wednesday, The time is between X and Y, The user is using Firefox browser, and many more.
The visibility settings will only affect widgets’ rendering in the frontend. While you are inside Elementor editor you will be able to see all of them.
Note: Updating from older version 1.2.0 to 2.1.3 is safe and it will keep your initial settings. You can still access them from the Stax Visibility tab when editing an Elementor widget or section.
- User Meta content restriction
- Restrict content based on User Browser (Chrome, Mozilla, Safari, etc)
- Date & Time restrictions for content

- Dynamic conditions – Restrict Elementor widgets and sections based on all Elementor Pro Dynamic tags.
