In this the final instalment of the SiteOrigin Widgets plugin by CodeLights, I will show you the Stats Counter component of this plugin. The Stats Counter is a great way to draw visitors attention to stats that are expressed as numbers. All you need to do is set the style and set the starting and ending numbers, it couldn’t be easier.
Some notable features of this component include:
- 6 international number formats including Chinese and Indian
- Negative numbers can be framed with parentheses
- Decimal points can be specified or left off completely
If you’d like to see the official examples, head over to codelights.com and check out the demos there.
Before we get started, I must just point out that this plugin can’t be configured from the Divi Visual Builder but only in the classic back-end. That said, once you’ve installed the plugin, head over to the page you want to use it on and click on the module you want to use it in. I’ve only tested it in the regular Divi Text Module, but it should work wherever you have a text editor.
Now that the plugin is installed, you’ll see a new icon in the text editor’s toolbar:
Click on this icon and choose Stats Counter from the six options. This will open the following window:
The configuration is relatively straightforward, the only thing that might not be obvious is that you can insert a phrase with an initial value in the Initial Counter value field and then the same phrase in the Final Counter value field with the final value.
And that’s it! The final instalment of this series on the SiteOrigin Widgets by CodeLights. Do yourself a favour and check out the other posts on this plugin:
