How could I make a sidebar widget that looks like the example of the attached file.

Is there anyway to have content to display on a certain day,
Like if it was a Wednesday (like today) then only Wednesday's content will display and the sidebar widget will ignore Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday? :D

i think the https://github.com/silverstripe-australia/advancedworkflow replaces the old embargo/expiry for pages that would allow you to do this.

If your hosting is not on "local time" then you'll need to cahnge the time zone in your _config.php

Haha you sure did recognize, I use this account now because it uses my primary email and I can't remember the email anymore for the other account.

But is there any PHP code that can allow the content to display on a certain day though?
Because I always do not know how to write out the code in the template.

<% if ????? %>
<% else %>
<% end_if %>

I do not know how to write out the SS template after writing out the coding

I'm wanting to make the content changeable as if it was on a tab for a certain page type. And it only shows HTML Content WYSIWYG editor 7 times, one for every day of the week... the workflow module kind of doesn't help me.. Still managing to get use to SilverStripe even though I've used it in a minor way years back :P
