WordPress Countdown Timer


This plugin adds a countdown timer to your webpage with the use of a shortcode.

In Settings > WP Countdown Timer, set the datetime you want to count down towards and save.

Use the shortcode [countdown] on any page to display the countdown timer.


  • Under Settings > WP Countdown Timer, you can set the date time that you would like to count down to.


Can I choose what units of time are displayed?

For now, all timers will display in the format [years, months, days, hours, minutes, seconds]. Future updates will include customization options.
