  • Search engines and dynamic content - Which content version will search engines crawl?

    If-So is a server-side solution. Conditions are checked when a page with dynamic content is loaded, and content is displayed accordingly. Only one version of the content is rendered (loaded).

    The content version that search engines will crawl depends on the condition you have set.

    Examples:

    Geolocation – If you have set a geolocation condition, the version that search engines will crawl depends on the actual location of the search bot that crawls your site.

    Returning Visitor – Generally, Google and other search engines crawl the web stateless, i.e., without cookies. Search engines will crawl the version displayed for first-time visitors.

    User Role/Logged-in Users – Search engines will crawl the version displayed for users who aren’t logged in.

    Dynamic Link / UTM Parameters – By default, search engines treat URLs with query strings as a separate page; both the default version and the dynamic version will be crawled. In most cases, it will be wise to set a canonical so that search engines will treat the two versions as a single page.

3rd-party Plugins
  • Can If-So be used with Layer Slider?

    Yes, there are two ways to incorporate dynamic content with If-So and Layer Slider.

    The first method involves creating an If-So trigger and inserting its shortcode into the slide’s content field to add dynamic content to the slide.

    The second option is to display different layer sliders to different users. To achieve this, create an If-So trigger with multiple versions, and assign the different layer sliders as the content of each trigger using the sliders’ shortcode. However, note that if you choose this approach, you may not be able to load the trigger using Ajax.

  • Can I use If-So with the Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) WordPress plugin?

    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.

    If you’d like to use If-So inside a Text field:
    add_filter(‘acf/format_value/type=text, ‘do_shortcode’);

    If you’d like to use If-So inside a Text Area field:
    add_filter(‘acf/format_value/type=textarea’, ‘do_shortcode’);


Known Issues
  • WordPress Pagination not functional within If-So Trigger

    When the WordPress pagination function is used within an If-So trigger, it does not function properly. The problem arises from the order in which the functions responsible for loading our dynamic content and handling pagination are executed.

    Please note that the reverse scenario, which involves applying dynamic content within the paginated content, is indeed possible.
