Though If-So offers a wide range of possibilities and advanced features, the basic usage of the plugin is very simple:
If-So is a dynamic content WordPress Plugin, allowing site administrators to personalize content according to a predefined set of conditions or using Dynamic Keyword Insertion shortcodes.
By providing your visitors with a tailored content experience, encouraging them to engage, convert, and buy more!
Yes. You can display dynamic content based on any parameter you want. Simply, use the Page URL condition and set it as follows:
If: Page URL > Conatins > ?your-parmeter; Then: Show dynamic content...
Alternatively, if you want to create a condition based on UTM parameters, you can use our dedicated UTM condition.
Though the option to display a dynamic version based on multiple conditions is not built into the plugin interface, the same result can be achieved by nesting shortcodes. ie. creating a trigger and pasting its shortcode within a dynamic version content field of another.
Let's assume you want to display a Click to Call button during your business' opening hours and only for mobile users.
The result: If the user device is mobile, the shortcode of the trigger with the shortcode condition will be loaded. If the Schedule condition is met, the Click to call button will be displayed.
* The above strategy will do the trick. We’re aware it's not an elegant solution-- plans to add a simple built-in one is in the works.
If-So has a WYSIWYG and HTML editor, just like WordPress' Classic Editor (before Gutenberg).
Create a trigger with an A/B Testing condition in order to test up to four variations. To A/B test dynamic content, you'll have to use multiple triggers with conditions being the variations.
Yes. You can use If-So with the ACF plugin.
The first step is to create an If-So trigger and paste its shortcode inside the custom field. Since Advanced Custom Fields do not render shortcodes by default, next you'll need to add the following filters to your functions.php file. Please feel free to contact us if you need help with that.

Whether you are using a caching plugin or server caching, you can navigate to the plugin settings and enable the "Page Caching Compatibility" option. With the option enabled, dynamic triggers will be rendered in a separate request that will take place after the loading of the cached version.
Which version search engine will crawl depends on the conditions you use and the order they are set in the trigger. Google and other search engines crawl the web stateless, i.e. without cookies. This is something Google has said many times over the years., the page Search For example, if you set a "New visitor" condition, search engines will see the content as if the condition was met. If you'll set a log-in condition, search engines will not see that content. If you set a "Dynamic link" condition - search engines will treat it like another page (you can set a canonical if you want).
The important thing is that search engines will always see the same content.
