Great plugin @sama55, never thought of getting this plugin in q2a but now it is released so I have also got some usage of this plugin... :)

Thanks Gurjyot. There is a lot of beautiful design count down script. But, they are too heavy for CPU. Therefore, I adopted very simple script. Please tell us if there is interesting usage and feature.

I cannot tell about all the uses of this but I am going to use it for an event that we were planning on our site and a competition on another site.
The watch will tell the time when the competition will start and end time as well. Lets see how much interaction does it create for my users.

Hello @Sama... Now I am finally having a use for this plugin. But as I was testing this I found some styling issues with this.

The clock is not centred in widget, instead it is shifted towards right.

I re-tested in SnowFlat theme. But, in particular, there was no problem. Did you change sidebar width?

Solution example:
.yycountdown-box .yyc-day,
.yycountdown-box .yyc-hou,
.yycountdown-box .yyc-min,
.yycountdown-box .yyc-sec {
  font-size: 1.5em;

I got it. When the number of characters is large, it will protrude. Please adjust CSS.
commented Jul 5, 2015 by Gurjyot Singh
Thanks for your suggestion @Sama55. I have made some changes in CSS and reduced the size of Numerics to 1.7 and even made some changes in colour to fit with SnowFlat theme.
