Hero countdown (Heading)

The ThemeWare® "Hero countdown" is a "Sale" banner that consists of two elements:

  1. Hero countdown (Heading)

This article refers to the element "Hero Countdown (Heading)". For more information on the element "Countdown banner", please see the following article: Countdown banner.

Important: The elements are explicitly intended for use in their own CMS blocks. They are 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.

Configure element

You can configure the ThemeWare® "Hero countdown (Heading)" 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 for the "Hero countdown (Heading)" is quite self-explanatory. The headline and the image are mandatory fields. That's all you really need to configure.


In the tab "General" you configure the content of the element.


In the section "Text" you enter the desired heading. The heading is a mandatory field


In the section "Image" you define the background image of the banner. The image is a mandatory field.


In the tab "Layout" you have various design options for the text and a coloured overlay.


In the section "Text" you can configure the font and text colour for the headline.

Coloured overlay

In the section "Coloured overlay" a coloured overlay can be activated and configured.

Image (Background image)

As you can see from the preview graphic of the "Hero countdown (Heading)", 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.
