I needed a countdown timer for a weekend sale banner and this works great. I was even able to change the size. There are more options if you purchase the pro version but this was enough for me. Thanks!

Great little plugin for adding a simple count-down/count-up clock. Looks good and works. Hopefully some future features might include: ~ Countdown that converts to Countup when clock hits 0 ~ Resetting countdown, like for weekly meeting or yearly anniversary.
