# Website Element Visibility (advanced)

To set visibility for a website element you would first select the element you want to work with; then open its properties panel in the Website Editor Sidebar and click through the Add Behavior button to select the visibility option.

 ∞ Website Editor Sidebar  ∞ Add Behavior - visibility

The Add Behavior - visibility property is a "client" side implemented feature. All content from the auction website page is sent to the client, or web browser, and the client decides what to show. The property is a convenience and not a secure way to hide information.

The conditions available for the visibility property in the Website Editor are pre-defined. The visibility property for website elements can only be applied to the auction website Column Content elements, Row Content elements, and the Current Page Settings.

IMPORTANT
Website Element Visibility properties set at the Current Page Settings level will also affect the display of the relevant Menu Entry. Hiding a page will also "hide" it in the menu. This is noted, when in "edit" mode, by a red overlay on the menu entry.

Clicking on the Visibility property will add it above the Add Behavior button.

The first drop-down selector manages if the element is displayed (Show to); or, if the element is not displayed (Hide from).

INFORMATION

Although similar, please see Email Element Visibility under the Editing Emails section of the User Guide for using the visibility properties with email content.

An "eye" icon will appear when you are in editor mode if a visibility condition is set for an element.

# Visibility Conditions

The Website Element Visibility conditions set specific criteria based on various general ideas such as bidder status and event configuration options.

  • Bidder Status
    • Signed in accounts
    • Bidders
    • Bidders with a balance
    • Bidders with a card
    • Ticket holders
  • Display Conditions

# Display Element To All Visitors

To make the element visible to all visitors to the website you would simply ensure there is NO visibility status set. As needed, you can click the "trash can" icon beside the visibility property to clear its contents and remove the effect it has on the element.
