This module is useful to display to your clients and visitors whether your business is open or not, at any given time. It is possible to find the Open Now Module in the Basic Modules menu, add it to your website by dragging it from the top bar to a row or column of your preference.
How does the Open Now Module work?
In order to display whether your business is open or closed, the Open Now Module takes into considerations two different time sets in its calculation: your own and the user's.
Your time set will be retrieved from the timezone added in Global Data. Learn where to add your timezone in Global Data here!The user's time set will be obtained based on their browser.
Thus, the Open Now Module is based both on the timezone set and the user's time, calculating and displaying the accurate Open/Closed message.
Edit the Open Now Module
To open the editing menu, double-click on top of the module you wish to modify or hover the mouse on top of it to find the blue Module menu and click on the Edit option.
Open Now Module & Global Data
The Open Now Module uses as input the Opening Hours you have defined in Global Data. This means that depending on the hours you have added on Global Data, the Module will display a open or closed message. Learn how to define your Opening Hours here!
1.1. Opened Text & Closed Text
In both fields you should type down what should be the message to display when your business is open and when it is closed. By default, the open message is "We´re open!" and the closed message is "Sorry! We're closed.".
You can integrate your Global Data on the Open Now Module! For example, it might be relevant to add to the Opened or Closed Text some sort of contact. So, for example, if you want to have the module displaying a message like: "Call us at +123456789", simply type down "Call us at [phone]" and the editor will automatically populate the field with the details inserted in Global Data.

1.2. Clickthrough URL
It is possible to add a link to the text displayed by the module. In this section you can define the behavior of that link - going to an internal page, an external page, an email or a file. It is also possible to define whether the link should be opened in a new tab or not; note that by default, external links are always set to open in a new tab.
1.2.1. SET "NOFOLLOW" PROPERTY
In this section it is possible to set a "nofollow" property to that specific link. This is a particularly relevant setting if you do not want search engines to consider that hyperlink and, therefore, when this setting is enabled, your link will not affect the target's ranking in the search engine index.
2.1. Opened Text
In this section it is possible to style the text when the business is open. The styling can be done in terms of font color, size, family, weight, line height, letterspacing, text decoration, italic and uppercase options. Furthermore, it is possible to define the alignment of the text and a background color specific to this scenario. Finally you can define the padding.
2.2. Closed Text
In this section it is possible to style the text when the business is closed. The styling can be done in terms of font color, size, family, weight, line height, letterspacing, text decoration, italic and uppercase options. Furthermore, it is possible to define the alignment of the text and a background color specific to this scenario. Finally you can define the padding.
With this option you can choose a solid color as the background for the module, if you haven't defined background colors for each status - opened and closed. If you have defined background colors to the opened and closed text, the editor will overwrite the color defined in this section.
Here you can define the module's border color, width, style and radius.
When styling the spacing you can define the margin - which adjusts the space outside of an element; and padding - which adjusts the space inside of an element.
3. Global Styling
It is possible to style all the Open Now modules simultaneously with Global Styling. Under the Global Styling tab, there is a Module Design option on the left menu. Click on it to expand the options and you should find the Open Now menu. Read more about the Open Now Global Styling here!
