    Hi, many thanks for the plugin, I tried to display into a page a countup to a future date, but using [countdown] shortcode it doesn’t work. Can you suggest any other solutions, please? Thank you!!

    1. Daniele says:

      Sorry for the past comment, there was a mistake.
      I would like to display a “countup” from a past date (eg. Sep, 4th, 1990), to show the “real-time” number of past days from that date, as a simple text (eg. “8900 days ago”).
      Is it possible with your plugin?
      Thank you again, Daniele

    Hi! Something is wrong with v2.6. I can’t browse media If a make a new or edit older wordpress posts. Can’t see any old images… If a deaktivate your Countdown Widget everything works as before. No problems with older versions of the plugin… Is it possibly to download the old 2.5.9?

    Using WordPress 4.7.1

      Did a rollback with plugin WP Rollback and using version 2.5.9 again. Everything works fine again!

        Hello Pastis, I fixed that error on version 2.6.1. Please check if the problem persists. Best regards.
