The plugin allows you to use your own custom templates and stylesheets.
In order to customize the style of the plugin, you can easily create a file called within theme
tcountdown.css folder. The file will be automatically loaded from your theme instead of the plugin folder.
In this way, the file
style.css contained within the plugin (/assets/css/) will be replaced with your stylesheet. Please keep in mind to copy and paste the code contained within this file if you need that theme folder.
If you need to include our plugin within your theme you can also customize the templates. Copy the file
tcountdown.php from the folder “templates” of the plugin folder and paste into the theme folder and automatically the plugin will load the templates from your theme instead of the plugin folder.
The plugin embeds some Google fonts, so please be aware of the following information, as stated in the Google FAQ:
The Google Fonts API is designed to limit the collection, storage, and use of end-user data to what is needed to serve fonts efficiently. […] Google Fonts logs records of the CSS and the font file requests, and access to this data is kept secure. […] We use data from Google’s web crawler to detect which websites use Google fonts.
In other words, when someone visits your website, Google will be able to access the IP address they used to access it. As a result of using Google Fonts, you implicitly accept their terms and conditions, and you must inform people visiting your site of this in accordance with the current GDPR law in Europe.
