    I am just wondering how I would go about resizing the timer for the sidebar? I can't have the sizing any longer than 225 pixels.

    I appreciate your help.

    Yes, the countdown can be any size you wish, however, some of the styles (jedi, dath and carbointe) use images for the look, so you will have to also resize these as well. There are, however, pure CSS styles (TIE-fighter and c-3po) that can be resized only by changing the CSS.

    Which style are you going for? Regardless, fret not! the answer will be provided!

    Thanks for the reply!

    I have added a countdown timer as you can see on the Website:

    I would prefer however to use the carbonlite image but don't quite know what to resize. I know where the images reside, but don't quite know which ones to modify since there are 3 images.

    Thanks again for your help!

    Hello again.
    The changes you need to make will require an image editing program (such as PhotoShop) and basic image editing and CSS skills. If you, or some nice person you know, has access to these, it should be no problem to adjust the css to fit your needs. If not, we do offer a very reasonable premium support package, but we considered it bad form to advertise that here on the WordPress Forums. Doh!

    Gotcha, yes, I use Photoshop daily... Most all of the graphics and images on the website required Photoshop from one degree to another.

    Thanks for your help.

    Ah, cool... then first start with the background image. Edit that to make sure it is the correct width and fits nicely in your sidebar. Then edit the css, reducing the sizes of the digits, maybe the padding between the digites so that that fit how you like. Keep in mind that weeks and days might be three digites, taking up extra space, depending on your use. Finally, if required, you edit the digit background images to fit.

    If you get stuck with the CSS, let us know what's tripping you up, and we will try to step you through it.

    Good luck!
