After installing the plugin I had the counter visible on the website within 2 minutes. The settings were very easy to modify!

Hey! Thanks for the update that you added in the latest version of the countdown. That was the html feature added on the text field. Hope you can add more styling in the free version of the countdown. Best regards.

Can not center or position count down placement. Gives many PHP warning errors Warning: extract() expects parameter 1 to be array, null given in /home/virtualhorsespor/public_html/wp-content/plugins/widget-countdown/includes/widget.php on line 36

I bought the pro version, and it had many bugs. I reached out to the plugin developer for a refund and he refused to provide one unless I helped him troubleshoot all his bugs. Pretty frustrating customer service... The free version seems fine so far though.
