Don't get me wrong:
this is the perfect counter!
Good documentation and a really dedicated Developer. If you use it, consider a donation, since there really is nothing like it out there.

So why the 4 stars?
The one issue I am having is the non-responsiveness of the counter size.
The only possibility I see to prevent negative impacts on your SEO is to have it hidden on mobile, for example with the ".hidden-xs" css class.

Other then that, maybe a little optimisation on performance with JS and CSS.

Very nice plugin!

Thanks a lot for this awesome plugin.

I wanted a counter counting down towards a specific date.

Achived that with shortcode:

[jellyfish_counter digits=2 digit_height=90 digit_width=73 digit_padding=1 start=5 end=0 direction="down" digit_style="font-family:Arial,Verdana,Sans-Serif; font-weight: 700; padding-top:2px; font-size:72px; background:#efefef; color:black;" timestamp="2015-01-08 12:00:00" interval=86400 ]

+ some cosmetics modifications to the shadows in the plugins css

If you modify hack a bit of CSS on your own, you can get it looking exactly like you wish. I for instance wanted black letters on white'ish background and achived that in 20 mins.

Dev you might consider cooking option for standard black on white'ish look into the plugin.

It's great!

Thanks Rob, this Plugin does exactly what I need. Quick and perfect support! It works fine for me.

Does exactly what it says but...

This is great plugin however the way JS and CSS is mangled together prevent you from moving JS in to the footer. I have 6 of them on the same page that means the same JS running 6 times. If I move JS to the footer counter wont show up at all because it needs that JS loaded to pull in css for rendering the counter. I guess by separating the JS and CSS this could be a 5 star.

The "continuous" option is fantastic. Can be used for any annual statistic, like "there's a break-in every 14 seconds." Great stuff.

Simple and clean

Counts anything you want. We're counting number of macaws released in our reintroduction project.
