Pounds of wasted food, gallons of ice cream, babies born, cars sold … any number that accrues througout the year, updated live on the website page.
* Enter a total number of anything for the full year. This plugin shows the corresponding accumulated number at this date and time in a continuously-running live counter on website pages.
* The counter automatically re-sets the running total to zero when the user’s device reaches midnight on December 31.
* You can re-set the total number for the year at any time and the plugin will recalculate.
This is a screenshot of how the counter looks on a national gleaning organization website.
Here's an example based on 465 million gallons per year.
This is an upcount of babies born in the U.S., most recently, 3,788,235 in a year.
This is the settings page. Enter your annual total and how often you want the counter to update on the web page.
- It will recalculate and update on the page every 1 to 120 seconds – you set the update frequency. For most purposes, 120 seconds is fine. For very large numbers that will change every few seconds, you might want to update more frequently.
- On any page or pages, sidebar, or footer.
- Sure. The plugin will just do the math the next time the page loads.
- You don’t have to. It will automatically re-set to zero when the user’s device reaches midnight on December 31.
