Scheduled Block Editable


The scheduled block element allows to manage scheduled content within an editable. Basically the scheduled block is very similar to the standard block editable. You can configure one or multiple sub editables that are repeated multiple times as block items. The difference is, that within the scheduled block each block item has a specific timestamp and in the frontend only one block item - the one with the corresponding timestamp - is displayed at a time (not all within a loop).

In editmode, additional block items can be added and their timestamp can be configured.

Basic Usage

{% for i in pimcore_scheduledblock("block").iterator %}
<h2>{{ pimcore_input("blockinput") }}</h2>
{{ pimcore_image("myimage") }}
{% endfor %}

The result in editmode should looks like to following: Scheduled Block in editmodeScheduled Block in editmodeScheduled Block in editmode

And in the frontend of the application: Scheduled Block in the frontendScheduled Block in the frontendScheduled Block in the frontend

In document preview, Pimcore provides a time slider to get the preview for a certain time as soon as the document has at least one scheduled block editable.

For details on how to create custom functionality using the time slider see Preview Scheduled Content.
