ਅਕਸਰ ਪੁੱਛੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਸਵਾਲ

How can I display content to everyone except some countries

If you have content that want to be display to USA’s users but then you want to show another content to everyone else, you can do the following:
[geot country=”US”] USA only content [/geot]
[geot exclude_country=”US”] Everyone except USA will see this [/geot]

2 Letter iso codes are better for geolocation shortcodes but the plugin also accepts country names.

“This plugin won’t work if you have any page cache in your site/server” Even tho I disabled cache on server/site and I try it localhost/online nothing work, was interested in the premium version, but as this one won’t work, no thanks.

Really, don’t waste your time on the free version: it doesn’t work if you use a caching plugin! Duh. I can understand making premium features, but this is useless and a waste of time for 99.9% of websites out there. I just needed a simple phrase to be hidden in certain countries. Oh well.
