FAQs – Countdown


The Countdown module displays a visual timer that counts down to zero for a date and time that you specify. Scroll down to see screenshots.

General tab

You can specify the target date and time, including choosing the timezone that should be used.

Style tab

This tab has a top section of settings, followed by several sections that vary depending on the type of layout you select.

Top section

  • Layout The choices are:
    • Numbers This setting includes numbers plus the text under the numbers for each unit of measurement (days, hours, minutes, seconds).

    • Numbers + Circles Adds a circle around the numbers that visually shows the time remaining: number of seconds left in a minute, minutes left in an hour, hours left in a day, days, left in a year.

  • Alignment This is the standard horizontal alignment toggle, which can be set to different alignments on large, medium, and small devices.


  • If the Circle size and Circle Stroke size are too large, they can overlap, as you can see in the screenshot. Check vertical spacing in responsive mode, as well as horizontal spacing in all modes – or make use of the overlap for effect!
  • To control the space between the numbers and the circle, use the Circle size setting in the Circle styles section described below.
