Add countdown timer to a cover page

Recommended Posts

Hello, I would like to add a countdown timer to my cover page while I refresh our actual website. I have the code and know how to add it to a normal page with a code block, but cover pages don't let you add code blocks.Has anyone been able to do this? I've tried adding it into code injection in the settings, but that doesn't work...It's a shame if it can't be added, as I'm sure lots of people would like to countdown to when their site goes live!Any help would be grateful.Many thanks x

Cover pages are designed to be inflexible, and show only limited content. Instead of using a cover page, consider using a standard page (you said that this worked well) and just use a couple of lines of CSS to hide the header and footer so it looks like a cover page.

Note that the CSS will depend on your site's settings so we'd need a working link to the site. If the site is still in trial mode you will need to set a site password and tell us what it is.

As this site is built using is a Bedford family template, the CSS you need to add to Design > Custom CSS is:

header#header, footer#footer {
  display: none;
}
