          2. Hello

            When we’re talking about opening hours for each item, we need to think about 2 parameters. The 1st is the opening hours in the contact details which must be set up for each Item. Then 2nd thing is to display these opening hours on each “item detail page”. So then in your wp-admin inside the section Citadela Special Page -> Item Detail Page sets what is visible for each item’s (listing) detail page. So if you’d like to display opening hours on each item’s detail page, please use “Item Opening Hours” block. Please see how does it look https://www.ait-themes.club/citadela-doc/item-opening-hours-block/.

            This blog post is mainly about standard business website which represent company or some other business. “Opening Hours” block is element for one company on standard website. It is not for directory website.

          3. Hello Emilia,

            THE LOOK is not avaiable in the ITEM OPENING HOUR. THIS one:

          4. Hello Denis,

            Thanks for your reply. Indeed, there are two different blocks with different purpose to use them. Anyhow, we’ll reconsider adding some more layouts for Item Opening Hour blocks in the future.

  3. Hello over there,
    it would be nice to have a split in the openening hours, because a lot of salesman and restaurants, especially in smaller towns, do have a lunch time or a closing time in the afternoon.
    This would increase the readability for users and is used in GoogleMyBusiness too.

    with regrads, Klaus

    1. Hello Klaus,

      Thanks for your interesting ideas. We’ll definitely consider them and make decision within coming weeks/months. Please kindly note we aim firstly to finish the 3rd phase: https://www.ait-themes.club/brand-new-memberships-3-2021-progress-report/.

      Anyway you can insert opening hours in the way you need. It means you can add mored hours for single day.

      Thanks for your understanding and patience.

      Have a good day!
