The Year of Free GiveWP Add-ons Series
Over the years, our users have asked for a variety of small tweaks to customize their donation plugin features. So, we decided it’s best to provide our own GiveWP customizations as free add-ons. We want to lead with our actions and democratize generosity with our CODE as well. Here’s a list of current free add-ons.
Introducing Form Countdown for GiveWP
Following up on the release of Per Form Confirmations, you told us that you wanted… several things, actually. There was a tie between “Elementor Modules”, “Animated Progress Bars,” and “Form Countdown”.
The concept for Form Countdown is straight-forward: set a date and time for the countdown to end, and the flip-clock will display on your form, reinforcing that sense of urgency.
I added some really nice features in 2.0 that I think you’ll enjoy:
- Color schemes and choosing your own custom color for the flipclock.
- Various actions that happen when the countdown ends, like hiding the form, or the clock, and showing a custom message.
- It works in parallel with the goal features, so you can have both. If the goal is reached and you’ve chosen to close the form then the countdown will also be hidden when the form is closed automatically.
Overall, this took a bit more work that I expected going into it, but I’m very happy with the results
Install Form Countdown on your site today and start adding that urgency to your forms that get your donors donating now rather than later. Best of all, you can combine this with Simple Social Shout or Per Form Confirmations just as easily.
