T(-) Countdown will display a highly customizable, flash-free countdown timer as a sidebar widget or in a post or page using a shortcode.
Widget seems to work well so far but I'd love the option to remove all styles. My design calls for plain text so I'm having to override A LOT of CSS from the most basic of the widget predefined styles.
Using Twenty Eleven with a Showtime template and no sidebar. I tried in-line shortcode on the page, but it was incomplete and I got a Jedi (default) display that didn't work. I found that the Main Sidebar didn't work. The Showcase Side bar widget setting can be used, but puts the display in the bottom-left corner of the pages. After I got the correct coding on the page, it worked as hoped with the style that I wanted and where I wanted it. Now very happy!
I understand the month problem, but I really would prefer to have the months instead of the weeks. If it comes, then I will give it 5 stars.
I tried several other countdown widgets, they all fell short. This one does it's job and does it well. I would like the ability to spin my own skin, but as it's free I really can't complain.
May the force continue to be with the developers!
You see, I have no problem paying $30 to get a lot of extra features. In fact, if the free version only had one skin, showed all time units regardless of the need for them, and came in only one size, I'd happily pay $30 to get the additional skins & sizes, remove months from showing, and be able to schedule recurring countdowns. Problem is that I can do everything but the recurring schedule bit for free. It's just not worth it when I can easily spend just five seconds changing the date to restart the countdown. If I'm going to pay, it's not going to be for one unnecessary feature.
It is all I need. Thanks for this great work.
