Kadence Gutenberg Blocks provides the Countdown block to display countdowns in your content. You can use a countdown to tell your customers how much time they have to take advantage of a sale. A countdown may be helpful to draw attention to an upcoming event. There are plenty of use cases for Kadence’s Countdown block and many ways to configure your timer using block settings.
Adding the Countdown block to your content is easy using the Gutenberg WordPress editor.
A countdown has an expiration date and time that can be adjusted using the block settings. By default, the clock counts down and shows zero when it expires. However, the pro addon allows you to set an Evergreen timer and an expiration action.
You can customize the timer even further with settings for the Countdown Layout, Number Settings, Label Settings, and more. You can add pre-text and post text to timers, change the colors and sizes of your font, and add borders.
The pro addon comes with some extra features for you to enjoy. An Evergreen Countdown is an individual counter based on a user’s browser. The traditional countdown has an expiration date that is the same for anyone that visits the site. However, an Evergreen timer will be triggered for a user when they first enter the page. You can repeat this timer after it expires for a user, and it helps impart a sense of urgency, perhaps for a limited-time offer. If it doesn’t find a cookie, it can verify by an IP address.
The pro addon also allows you to adjust the action at expiration. Upon expiration, the timer could be set to hide, be replaced with alternative content, or redirect the user to another URL.
