Amazing job: i love this plugin! To sume up: Many thanks for bringing this awesome plugin to us; 10 stars (out of 5 possible) from me! keep up the great work! I am sure that you find user and friends all over the planet very soon
I tried 2 other plugins first (Block Visibility and Responsive Block Control) neither of which work at all for block visibility based on screen size for blocks containing short code. Conditional Blocks just works. Thank you for this great plugin.
Unstable plugin. You rely on (in)visibility of blocks, but after every update you can't be sure if it works or not, messing up your whole website. Not a recommendable plugin.
The huge potential with this plugin, plus the new block editor is immense. I look forward to bringing this to future clients.
The show hide block on screen size feature is just what I wanted. Amie
I don't need this plugin very often (in fact, right now, I'm not sure I'm using it at all on my site) but, when I do, it's a lifesaver. Really, this kind of functionality should be built into the block editor - until then, this is fantastic.
