How to use the WordPress Plug-in

An article is intended to introduce a specific product. The text of this article should be automatically published different text at christmas than in the rest of the year.

<h1>Gift idea for men [IF $month>10] for Christmas[ELSE] for Birthday[/IF]</h1>
[IF $month>=1 AND $month<=10]
    <p>This beer backpack is the ideal birthday gift for all men </p>
    <p>This beer backpack is the ideal Christmas gift for all men </p>

As you can see in this example, bloggers can tailor their articles to specific time periods or dates, such as holidays, and thus handle seasonal events automatically.
