I downloaded this originally from EDD’s website. This is the only automatic close store plugin that I could find for Easy Digital Downloads (EDD) as I need to close my store (the checkout part) once a week. Had an issue and the EDD team got it fixed. I added a time schedule to close the store and it works. It does need more features though, such as having a notification bar appear when store is closed (front-end) as right now the message is added over the buy/checkout buttons. Meaning, if your Buy/checkout buttons say β€œPurchase now”, it will be replaced by your custom message, such as β€œStore is closed today, come back tomorrow and you’ll be able to checkout!” So, the buttons are very wide now. I suggested for them to add a feature where the buttons remain the same but upon clicking them a pop-up appears with a message that store is closed, or you’re taken to another page where a message is displayed. Or, add a notification bar on top of website somehow or a pop-up floating around the site. Great plugin nonetheless!
