The Divi Countdown Timer Module

How to add, configure and customize the Divi Countdown Timer module.


The Countdown Timer module creates a visual timer that counts down to a specific date. This is great for creating a “coming soon” page to builds anticipation for a new product or service. When combined with a “blank page,” this can also be used as a great “coming soon” landing page/maintenance mode page.

It is important to be able to let your visitors know when something is going to be launched or an event is going to occur. Simply set the date and time to count down to and wait for the big day.

How To Add A Countdown Timer Module To Your Page

Before you can add a countdown timer module to your page, you will first need to jump into the Divi Builder. Once the Divi Theme has been installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you are building a new page. Clicking this button will enable the Divi Builder, giving you access to all of the Divi Builder’s modules. Next, click the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in Visual Mode. You can also click the Use Visual Builder button when browsing your website on the front end if you are logged in to your WordPress Dashboard.

Once you have entered the Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside of Rows. If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a row to your page first. We have some great tutorials about how to use Divi’s row and section elements.

Locate the countdown timer module within the list of modules and click it to add it to your page. The module list is searchable, which means you can also type the word “countdown timer” and then click enter to automatically find and add the countdown timer module! Once the module has been added, you will be greeted with the module’s list of options. These options are separated into three main groups: Content, Design and Advanced.
