GetSiteControl widgets are responsive, so if you have a responsive website all your widgets will automatically switch to the mobile view when the site is opened on a mobile device. But if your website is not responsive you might want to hide some of the widgets from those who are using mobile devices to access your website. Here is how you can configure your widgets to be hidden on smartphones and/or tablets while still showing on desktops:
Login to your GetSiteControl dashboard, find the necessary widget in the list and click on the Edit button. If you want to create a new widget, click on the green Create widget button.
Switch to the Targeting tab. By default the widget is shown to all website visitors. To change that check visitors who meet the conditions below in the Who should see this widget? section.
Note: advanced targeting settings are only available on Plus and Pro plans.
Make sure that the Exclude devices option is selected in the drop-down menu and then check the Mobile check-box. If you want to hide the widget from tablet visitors too check the Tablet check-box.
That’s it. Click OK to save the changes. Now visitors browsing your website from mobile devices will not see the widget.
