A new version of a popular Smart Countdown module is available.

Smart Countdown 3.0 is based on the idea of version 2.x but it was significantly refactored. Version 3.0 implements a number of new or improved features:

  • Client script part was totally rewritten and now it doesn't depend on Mootools library, only jQuery is required.
  • Completely new implementation of responsive behavior, now adapting to the template position the module is published to.
  • Counter intervals can be now expressed in years, months and weeks - along with traditional days, hours, minutes and seconds.
  • Simplified event import plugins interface (now designing this kind of plugins is much easier).
  • Module live preview in Joomla administration interface.
  • AJAX queries for counter events, now the module should work correctly on all sites that actively use page caching, no more need to exclude module position from caching.


  • Smart Countdown 3.0 is compatible with Joomla 3.x only! For Joomla 2.5.x use version 2.5
  • Animation profiles for Smart Countdown 2.5 are basically compatible with 3.0. If you have purchased additional animations earlier you can install them on Smart Countdown 3.0 after applying simple modifications
