How to use Countdown Pro Widget

  1. set the expiration date – the time at which the countdown expires
  2. define a start date to show timer on this date. You can display custom text before this date.
  3. select a time zone between server time and visitor’s local one
  4. set the format of countdown. Use ‘Y’ for years, ‘O’ for months, ‘W’ for weeks, ‘D’ for days, ‘H’ for hours, ‘M’ for minutes, ‘S’ for seconds. Upper-case characters for required fields and lower-case characters for display only if non-zero.
  5. define the style for timer between Default (square) and Circular
  6. customize the following colors with color picker:
    • background color
    • text color
    • track color
  7. modify the blocks of counter to fit your needs within the following properties:
    • track background color
    • block size
    • track width
    • digit size
    • text size
    • spacing between the blocks
  8. if you set a start date for your countdown you can also add some content before it starts. Note: the text will be displayed on the website preview only and not available in the builder.
  9. you can also add custom content to appear when the countdown reaches zero.
  10. another option for expiration date is a redirect by URL. Since the counter reaches zero all the visitors will be redirected to any URL you wish.

One of the main features is an option to add content before the timer starts and after it reaches zero. You can find it useful if you add a timer to count for a discount release and add coupon code to appear when it reaches zero. Moreover, you can enable automatic redirect to any URL after the counter is over. We are pretty sure you’ll find a way to apply the countdown on your WordPress site properly.

  1. Would this work to setup a Guestbook area where we can display the Private information about the property to Guests before their checking date, like 48 hours before check in or something like that?

    1. Hello Pedro,
      Thank you for your question. Actually this is one of the premium addons for Visual Builder plugin. This addon allows to add countdown timer and style it visually. However you need to set up the date and time manually. By default it does not fetch the dates of certain events automatically.
