Jellyfish Counter Widget

A rotating odometer style counter widget that can display either a static value or animate to a predefined total. Great for tracking any totals, not j

This plugin allows you to add a widgets to your WordPress web site that can display a static or animated odometer style counter. The counter can be used as a manually updated total, an automatic counter updating over time or just as an animated visual effect.

The counter can either count upwards or downwards and is suitable for both incrementing totals or countdown situations.

A great visual effect for travel blogs or any website that wants to display a running total of anything.

You can have as many counters as you wish, all can have individual settings for totals and appearance.

The counters are highly configurable through the widget interface and are generated using CSS and Javascript, requiring no external graphics files.


You can see a counter in action at http://sharkaroo.net/map Using an animated counter adds visual and narrative impact to an otherwise static value.
