Configuration & Settings

Widget visibility can be controlled using two distinct methods with ActiveMember360.

The most advanced way is using Conditional mode. However an Individual mode is also supported.

We would always recommend using Conditional mode as it provides the greatest flexibility regarding the conditions available to control the display of the widget for personalization and segmentation.

Adding/defining a Conditional is detailed at Adding Conditionals.

Individual mode is primarily available to provide backward compatibility for widget controls defined prior to Conditionals being introduced.

Conditional Mode

Individual Mode

Steps to specify widget visibility using individual mode
  1. In the WordPress administrator main navigation click Appearance, Widgets.
  2. Select the required widget.
  3. Locate the ActiveMember360 Widget Conditions panel.
  4. From the Control mode drop down ensure Individual is selected.
  5. Set the widget Display when setting to Always, Is Logged In, Not Logged In and Never.

    The default Display when setting is to Always display the selected widget.

    The Display when setting works in conjunction with the other ActiveMember360 visibility conditions of AND if the visitor has ANY of the following tags:, AND if the visitor has NONE of the following tags: and the AND the following PHP condition is true: to determine the widget visibility.

    They work as AND conditions. If any conditions evaluate as FALSE the widget will not be visible.

    If Never is selected as the Display when setting irrespective of other conditions the block will never be shown. The purpose of this Never setting is to keep the widget settings in place should you wish to effectively disable the widget.

  6. From the AND if the visitor has ANY of the following tags: drop down select the ActiveCampaign tag(s) the user should have for this condition to evaluate as TRUE. The user can have any of the tags specified for the condition to evaluate as TRUE.

    Click in the selection area and start typing part of the tag name to refine the list. Then click on the required tag.

    Multiple tags can be selected.

    Individual tags can be removed from the selection by clicking on the x shown next to the individual tag name.
  7. From the AND if the visitor has NONE of the following tags: drop down select the ActiveCampaign tag(s) the user should not have for the condition to evaluate as TRUE. The user must have none of the tags specified for the condition to evaluate as TRUE.

    Click in the selection area and start typing part of the tag name to refine the list. Then click on the required tag.

    Multiple tags can be selected.

    Individual tags can be removed from the selection by clicking on the x shown next to the individual tag name.
  8. Set visibility conditions for the WordPress Widget based upon a conditional PHP statement.

    In the AND the following PHP condition is true: input area define the PHP conditional statement.

    Any valid PHP conditional function can be used.

    ActiveMember360 has conditional functions that can be used:

    mbr_has_tags()

    Here are some examples:

    a. Statement evaluates as TRUE if the user HAS tag 123. b. Statement evaluates as TRUE if the user HAS tag 123 OR 234. c. Statement evaluates as TRUE if the user HAS tag 123 OR 234. d. Statement evaluates as TRUE if the user HAS tag 123 AND 234. e. Statement evaluates as TRUE if the user HAS tag 123 AND 234.

    Any function preceded with an exclamation mark ! specifies the negative use case of the function.

    f. Statement evaluates as TRUE if the user DOES NOT HAVE tag 123.

    It is also possible to combine conditions with && (representing AND) and || (representing OR).

    g. Statement evaluates as TRUE if the user HAS tag 123 AND DOES NOT HAVE tag 234. h. Statement evaluates as TRUE if the user HAS tag 123 OR DOES NOT HAVE tag 234.

    You can also use any conditional tags including WordPress and WooCommerce conditional tags.
