The criteria system can now match the values in users' custom fields, allowing far more flexibility than previously available. This ability extends to Notices, Trophies and User Group Promotions.
Notices: Date Criteria
The criteria system now has the ability to match the current date and time. It's possible to use just date or just time in order to create a periodic or repeating criteria. Options for 'date is after' and 'date is before' are provided. These abilities extend to Notices, Trophies and User Group Promotions.
Excellent updates. Criteria based on Custom User Fields should be really interesting for many sites.
I wonder if custom user fields could be used to show better google ads to specific users ?
Can you have Google ads inside a notice ?
Users often ignore Google ads because they are appear on the same part of the page all the time (ie. sidebar).
If there were no Google ads sometimes and then highly relevant Google ads sometimes .... I might click more often.
or maybe just display the usual google ad but when appropriate display a "targeted" google ad when certain criteria are met.
