We do have a separate article for the "Countdown" element, you can find it here.

To add an animated countdown timer to your content, go to your WordPress editor, click on the Thrive Themes shortcode dropdown, and select "Countdown":


You'll see the following shortcode options:


1) Countdown Color

Select the color style you want to apply to the "Countdown" timer element from this dropdown.

2) Time

Click into the field to open the date and time picker. The date and time you select here is the absolute end date that the "Countdown" timer counts down towards.

3) Fade Out

Check this box if you want the "Countdown" timer element to fade out and become invisible, once it reaches zero.

4) Countdown Text

Check this box and add a line of text if you want some text to display once the "Countdown" reaches zero (e.g. "sorry, the time for this offer has expired!").

5) Insert Button

Click on this button when your settings are done and you want to add the timer to your post or page.


Please note that in order to use the Shortcodes as they are described in this article, you have to install the "Classic Editor" plugin. Check out this article to find out more about how to install and use the plugin.
