Recently Updated / Released

Hustle Pro

WordPress Plugins

17 February 2020
Version 4.1
  • Important! We've fixed visibility conditions! Prior to Hustle 4.1, the visibility engine would require you to set rules for every post type your theme used, not just the ones you specified to make it appear on correct pages. We've updated this behavior to only display modules based on the post types explicitly defined in your conditions. For Example, if you add a “Pages” condition to show your module on 1 page only, you'd no longer have to add other post type conditions to hide your module on them. After updating, we recommend double-checking your Hustle modules' visibility conditions are working as expected.
  • Allow restricting access within Hustle by user roles
  • Add groups to visibility conditions
  • Add "any" and "all" conditionals within groups
  • Allow applying each group to a different display type
  • Allow the conditions to show or hide the module when they are met
  • Add a visibility conditions for Woocommerce, page templates, the user's browser, registration date, user role, static pages, and archive pages
  • Remove "all" and "none" within the conditions' options
  • Support SCRIPT_DEBUG
  • Handle support for some of the old conditions behavior with the new options
  • Allow extending the core's visibility conditions
