Published in EngageBox
Updated 16 Feb, 2022

The Continent Condition lets you choose the Continents from which your visitors should be able to see your box. You can select one or more Continents out of a list containing all the Continents of the world.

Continent Display Condition


In the table below you can see which options are available to setup the Continent Condition.

Name Description
Match Set whether to match or not the selected continents.

Click in the textfield so a selectbox pops up from which you can filter the Continent or Continents that you'd like by typing on the fly.

Once you select one you can continue typing to find the next one and so forth.

Use Case

The most common use case for the Continent Condition is when your box contains content which is targetted towards people visiting from a certain Continent. It has been widely used for copyright reasons which affect only a certain Continent or more.

Useful Notes

The Continent Condition uses a special plugin called "Tassos.gr - GeoIP Plugin" which is installed automatically with EngageBox.

Normally, upon new installs, you will be greeted with a notice from within EngageBox that you need to update the GeoIP Database so that the City, Region, Country and the Continent Conditions would work with the latest data as you can see below.


In that case, just click the button "Update Database" and within a few seconds the notice will disappear until the next time it needs updating.

Alternatively, you can go the plugin's options as well and update the database from there anytime you see fit as you can see from the screenshot below.


On top of that, you can also check directly the data which is related to a certain IP Address to check if everything works as it should be.
