How to create and style the Divi countdown timer module

In this instructional exercise, I will cover how you can make and style a commencement clock with the Divi commencement clock module. This Divi module is ideally suited for counting down to a particular date or time for different purposes, as I'll show you in this instructional exercise.

I will begin this instructional exercise by covering how you can add a commencement clock module to your site and the styling choices.

Toward the finish of this instructional exercise, I have a few premium choices for commencement clocks for the Divi Topic.

How to add a countdown timer module

Add a new row to the section and then add a new column to the row.

Click on the “+” icon to add a new module and select the “Countdown Timer” module.

In the “Date and Time” settings, enter the date and time that you want the timer to count down to.

In the “Design” tab, you can customize the appearance of the timer.

Click on the “Save” button to save your changes.

How to style the countdown timer module

The Divi commencement clock module offers an assortment of styling choices that you can use to tweak the presence of the clock. These choices include:

  • Text style family
  • Text dimension
  • Text style tone
  • Foundation tone
  • Line tone
  • Line width
  • Line sweep
  • Text arrangement
  • Text dividing

You can find these choices by opening the commencement clock module and afterward going to the plan tab.

You can utilize these choices to make a commencement clock that matches the style of your site.

Advanced styling options

By default, the countdown timer looks like this:

I prefer more like a tile look something like this:

I will give you some CSS bits for some extra styling for your commencement clock that isn't accessible in the default choices.

On the whole, you need to add a class to the commencement module. Open the commencement module and go to the High level tab. Under CSS and Classes add the accompanying CSS class "custom-commencement".

After that place the following snippet in Divi > Theme Options > CSS, or in your Divi child theme if you are using one.

.custom-countdown .values { background-color: #da181f; /* background color of each tile */ } .custom-countdown .values { padding: 15px 0px 25px 0px; /* padding of the tiles */ border-radius: 7px; /* border radius of the tiles */ } .et_pb_countdown_timer .section.values { width: 20%; /* width of the tiles */ }

Explanation of the CSS code

I will give you a short description of the CSS code and how to adjust it.

First snippet

The first snippet is for the background color of the tiles.

.custom-countdown .values { background-color: #da181f; /* background color of each tile */ }

You can change the color code to change the background color of the tiles.

Second snippet

This part is for the padding and rounded corners of the tiles. You can adjust these values if you like.

.custom-countdown .values { padding: 15px 0px 25px 0px; /* padding of the tiles */ border-radius: 7px; /* border radius of the tiles */ }

Third snippet

The last one is for the width of each tile. If you want to make them smaller you can adjust this value.

.et_pb_countdown_timer .section.values { width: 20%; /* width of the tiles */ }
