Custom Iconbox Widget
Closed

Comments

  • Alex started the conversation

    I am interested in changing the Iconbox widget in the header on the right to show today's hours instead of static hours. I am familiar with PHP and have written a script that will echo the string I want, but where can I find the code for the iconbox so I can make a custom iconbox widget? Or do you have a better solution for displaying dynamic data in this area?

    Hi Alex,

    You can change these details in the header by navigating to Appearance -> Widgets. On the right side of the screen you will see the "Header" panel. If you click on this it will open were you will see 4 "QT: Icon Boxes".

    By clicking the "QT: Icon Boxes" you can easily change the content without using any code.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,
    Barry

    This does not address my concern. Changing the text this way is fine if you have the same hours everyday. The default is "Mon - Friday: 8AM - 5PM". Except my hours are different every day and I do not want to put a long list of hours for each day. Instead, if today is Thursday, I would like it to say "Closed" and if it's Friday, it will say "9am - 2pm" etc. It will change depending on the day of the week. The title of the widget will read "Today's Hours". Here is a pastebin for a custom widget I programmed but I want to make sure there isn't an easier way. I also want the widget to appear in the same style as the other QT boxes. https://pastebin.com/dB7LWbWg
