Countdown banner (compact)

The ThemeWare® "Countdown banner (compact)" is a "Sale" banner element for your Shopping Experiences.

Important: The element is explicitly intended for use in its own CMS block. It is not designed for use in other CMS blocks and therefore cannot be exchanged or placed in other blocks.

Note: This element is only available in the ThemeWare® Pro Edition.

The compact "Countdown banner" has two phases:

  1. Pre-sale phase

  2. Sale phase

1. Pre-sale phase

The pre-sale phase is a countdown to the start of the final sale. This offers the opportunity to promote an upcoming sale.

Tip: Link the button to your newsletter subscription page or to the scroll anchor #newsletterSubscription of the ThemeWare® Newsletter footer widget.

2. Sale phase

Die Sale-Phase ist ein Countdown bis zum Ende des entsprechenden Sales.

Tip: Link the button to a sale category or landing page.

Sale finished

After both phases, the block is hidden by CSS. Then remove it from the corresponding Shopping Experience at the next possible moment.

Configure element

You can configure the ThemeWare® "Countdown banner (compact)" as follows:

  1. Click on the corresponding CMS block (1) to activate the "edit mode"

  2. Hover the mouse over the desired CMS element

  3. The "Element Settings" pop-up will open

  4. Make the desired changes

  5. Save your changes

You have now configured the CMS element.


The configuration of the "Countdown banner (compact)" is quite self-explanatory and corresponds to the "Countdown banner" (see Countdown banner).


In the tab "Responsive" you can configure the "wrapping" of the counter (see Breakpoint).


Select the desired breakpoint. The content is displayed in a single row from this viewport onwards.

Layout types

There are currently three different layout types (see screenshots below) available for the counter:

  • Clean countdown

  • Numbers with coloured background

  • Counters with coloured background


Image (Background image)

As you can see from the preview graphic of the "Countdown banner", it makes sense to leave some "space" for the text in order to make it easier to read.

Tip: To help you to create the perfect background image, you will find PSD templates for CMS elements in the ThemeWare® Utilities.
