Business Hours Indicator

Version: 1.6

A lightweight plugin that adds a little open / closed pill with colors.

How to Use

Download > Install > Activate. To edit, use your favorite IDE or just edit within the WordPress plugin editor. Change the open and close times to suite your needs. Times are based on server time so adjust accordingly.

Example

In the code below I am open 9-5 mountain or 16:00 - 11:59 UTC (server time). The last line of the code allows for the short code to be used within a WordPress menu which is displayed in my header.

Source

This code can be pasted into the functions.php file of your child theme or, download and install the plugin for simple code activation.
