How to change the position of the timer?

Hi. This plugin is really good and I am happy with it. Can I change the timer's position? I want to place it under the heading of the product or after quick overview. Is that possible? Thanks
Asked by: Chatty24
Hi, Yes it is possible to move the timer to any position but we don't have any setting in admin to execute this. You will need to modify the code in order to move the position. Please go to timer.css in the file path skin\frontend\default\yourtheme\timer\timer.css to move the timer to any position you need.

Time wrong because of caching

Hi Great extension. However, it's not working properly because I have redis in my site. When I reload the page, time starts exactly from when first I visited the page. How do I avoid caching with this extension? Please suggest.
Asked by: doggy12345
Hi, Kindly note that the third party extension for cache management has been developed based on default Magento. if you want to make it compatible with the price countdown extension then you have to modify the code in your cache management module related to the price countdown extension.

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by apptha

Price Countdown is rated 1.7 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor code, overwrites your theme The extension is very poorly coded and violates about any Magento coding best practice you can think of, e.g. they put a custom Javascript file simply without subfolder into the root of the /js directory. Also it will add an "Apptha" menu to the top of your Magento admin dashboard. Nice. And to top everything it will simply overwrite the list.phtml of your theme and thus most likely break your theme. Avoid at any cost!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good on magento 1.8.1 This extension works as promised, I have changed the extension a bit, so now i can set the timer On or Off per product because i did not want the timer for every product with a special price. I had some problems with the Full Page Cache i use (lesti fpc) but this is solved also. ( the timer started always on the time the product was saved). So after some modification it works good. Thanks.
