  • Ooops: one of the obsolete things removed in previous version wasn't as obsolete I imagined.


  • Updated WordPress tested version to 4.2.3
  • Cleanup: removed obsolete js and css files.
  • Minor Bugfix: fixed initialisation of current value.
  • New Feature: tick_multiplier parameter added to shortcode, see shortcode usage for details.


  • Updated WordPress tested version to 4.1
  • Minor bugfix: End value is no longer limited to an integer or required.


  • Minor bugfix: Persistent Interval is no longer limited to an integer
  • Minor bugfix: Counter added via the theme customiser now display when added without saving their settings first.


  • New Counter alignment option for widgets and shortcodes, easily align a counter to left, center or right without touching style sheets. Additionally a shortcode counter can be rendered inline within a line of content.


  • Shortcodes! You can now show counters directly in the post or page content using the [jellyfish_counter] shortcode.
  • The Odometer class has been extended further and renamed JellyfishOdometer.
  • General code cleanups and function / variable renaming
  • Added completedFunction attribute to jellyfish-odometer.js to allow defining a callback function that will be triggered when the counter completes
  • Continuous counter timestamps use your blogs local time instead of UTC
  • Updated Readme


  • Another major re-factoring of JavaScript. All counter functions are now part of the odometer class which now takes it's configuration from data attributes on the counter container element. No more inline JavaScript!
  • Much of the inline CSS has now been abstracted to a base stylesheet making it easier to restyle counters. Individual counter can still be styled through their widgets.


  • No longer use widget_content filter instead of the_content filter on widget before/after text
  • Major reworking of odometer class to incorporate new features
  • Added format option to allow formatting the counter display to include non counting characters such as prefixes or separators


  • Continuous counters no longer reset when their widget is saved unless the start value is changed.
  • Added ability to define text to be displayed before and after the counter.
  • Added a "disable 3D effect" setting to blend with flat design themes.
  • Added a more logical "Count Up | Static | Countdown" Counter Type setting.
  • General improvements to the widget settings interface.
  • The plugin is now localized and translation ready - let me know if you'd like to translate the plugin into your language.


  • Added countdown feature.
  • Fixed bug where end value could not be 0


  • by request, added a non resetting continuous counter feature that can increment every set number of seconds until it reaches its goal
