Preguntas frecuentes

Translation issue with the version 2.4.0

Recently YITH Topbar Countdown has been selected to be included in the «translate.wordpress.org» translate programme. In order to import correctly the plugin strings in the new system, we had to change the text domain form ‘yit’ to ‘yith-topbar-countdown’. Once the plugin will be imported in the translate.wordpress.org system, the translations of other languages will be downloaded directly from WordPress, without using any .po and .mo files. Moreover, users will be able to participate in a more direct way to plugin translations, suggesting texts in their languages in the dedicated tab on translate.wordpress.org. During this transition step, .po and .mo files will be used as always, but in order to be recognized by WordPress, they will need to have a new nomenclature, renaming them in: yith-topbar-countdown-.po yith-topbar-countdown-.mo. For example, if your language files were named yit-en_GB.po and yit-en_GB.mo, you will just have to rename them respectively as yith-topbar-countdown-en_GB.po and yith-topbar-countdown-en_GB.mo.

Can I customize the topbar countdown banner ?

Yes, the page is a simple template and you can override it by putting the file template «tcountdown.php» inside the theme folder. You can also customize the style by adding your custom CSS in the specific option of the settings.

Can I deactivate the ‘button’ on the right of the topbar ?

Yes simply leave the «Link» field label empty to achieve this.

Have I to deactivate the plugin to hide topbar countdown banner ?

No, you can deactivate the topbar countdown even if the plugin is active.


Doesnt work on mobile

In this day and age, if your product doesnt work on mobile, it doesnt work PERIOD! I was excited when I found this plugin as it was just what I needed but quickly uninstalled it when it disappeared on mobile.

Stable but no mobile support.

The plugin is stable and works. But given the fact that most B2C e-commerce websites (I have seen) are receiving 70%+ traffic from mobile customers, it seems a bit counter intuitive to purposefully restrict this plugin from working on mobile devices. The fix would be as simple as adding a class to the body when the plugin is active, then shifting the body down by whatever the width is. You can even have desktop and mobile settings and a custom CSS panel that would inject the CSS only if the timer is active would also help. Again no issues with the functionality, it's a simple plugin that works. My problem is that this is an e-commerce marketing plugin in 2018 that purposefully will not work for 70%+ of users on most websites that it is used on. I am hoping the developer will take this feedback constructively and use it in their decision making process when it comes to laying out the roadmap for future updates.

Awesome, works well, with one caveat

It's beautiful, works as described. As some others mentioned, you need to input the date manually and not use the date picker. It has to be in this format: 11/27/2017 otherwise it won't work. Also doesn't work on the mobile site.
