Setting up daily specials that rotate every day

Recommended Posts

Im would like to set up a daily specials page for a restaurant where it displays the current daily special and automatically updates everyday to show the current days special. I can set up all the specials for the week beforehand but I dont know how to make it rotate daily.

@TruAl As a workaround, you could create a hidden Events Page and create an event for each day, setting the end date/time to match the closing time of your restaurant for that day. If you prepare them in advance, you'll have an Event configured for each day.

You can then use a Summary Block, connected to the Events collection and configured to show a single item. The Summary Block will then show the current (not expired) event, which should be today's specials, or if you're closed, it will show the specials for the next day that you open.
