What’s New in Block Visibility 1.8.0



Release Date: April 13, 2021

Version 1.8.0 focused on two usability enhancements, an overhaul of the Date & Time control and the introduction of the new Advanced Custom Fields (AFC) integration.



  • Added the Advanced Custom Field control, the second third-party integration for Block Visibility!
  • Added functionality for multiple Date & Time schedules.
  • Added the ability “invert” the Date & Time control per block. By default, this control allows you to show the selected block if at least one schedule applies. You can now optionally hide the block if at least one schedule applies!
  • Added the ability to set default visibility controls.
  • Added the ability to easily reset the visibility controls on each block.


  • Updated control set controls toggle icon to be more consistent with WP core.
  • Updated popover styling to be more consistent with WP core.


  • Removed the enable_scheduling setting. Users can now easily toggle visibility controls at the block level so this setting is not longer needed. The entire Date & Time control can still be enabled/disabled in the Visibility Control settings.
  • Removed conditional indicator support for the startDateTime and endDateTime properties that were deprecated in version 1.4.1. Frontend visibility tests for these properties are still operational but will likely be removed in version 2.0.


  • Fixed WP Fusion filters to improve the integration.
