Episode VII Countdown Widget

Description

The Episode VII Countdown Widget is a simple countdown to Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.

The widget comes with multiple styles and offers some basic configurations settings such as color scheme for countdown and the option to translate ”Days”, ”Hours” and ”Minutes” to your preferred language.

The widget is flexible and is tested to work fine in columns as small as 160 px. The way it is built also ensures it works just as fine on your mobile device as on desktop.

How come you don’t display seconds?

A Because this way the widget fits in smaller areas.

I have a really small right column, will the countdown still fit?

If you choose either of the styles named ”xsmall” you have a design that fits columns as small as 160 px (which is the size of for example the default 2014 WP theme).

How big is the biggest size?

The biggest size available is 325 px. Even if you have a bigger column than that it still looks good though.
