Conditional Content: How to Add Elements to Certain Devices

Conditional Content: How to Add Elements to Certain Devices

Want to have a specific element show up only for desktop users, and not users on tablets or mobile devices? Perhaps for a specific ad code or custom HTML setup that's only meant for one device.

We have the right tool to facilitate this sort of control over your site, and it's called the Conditional Content element.

By inserting an element you want specific control over inside of the Conditional Content element, you can create different experiences for mobile, tablet, and desktop users.

You can add the Conditional Content element to any part of your layout with the + ADD ELEMENT action in the Layout & Design tool.


Once the Conditional Content element is inserted, you can place new elements inside of it, such as Header Code.

In the drop-down menu of the Properties card, you can choose if you want the conditional content to be shown in mobile, tablet, or desktop views.

If you choose "Tablet" and you're in desktop view, or "Mobile" and you're in tablet view, and so on, don't worry — the element hasn't disappeared. It's only visible in the viewport when it's called to be displayed.

Bear in mind that if you want an element to display on desktop and tablet, for example, you'll have to create two different Conditional Content elements with the same element inside of each.

In 2023, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2023 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.
