Custom CSS formatting in mobile view

Go to solution Solved by tuanphan,

I'm updating our site and changing to 7.1 at the same time. I've copied over custom CSS from our current 7.0 site that creates a scrolling number effect, but it's not lining up properly in the new mobile view after I update the text information I want to display. I tried changing the parameters that are included (padding, line spacing, etc), but I can't figure out how to get it to line up properly (I'm not a coding expert, as you can tell :-)). Below is the code from the current website with the updated text information I want to display on the new page included (again, it works find in desktop view, but just not mobile view), Current website is https://nhscares.org, and the new site I'm working on is https://sponge-gold-8hcr.squarespace.com/config/design  - the problem page is found under "The Facts" -> "For Parents", Password is: Preview

I appreciate your help!!

var a = 0;

$(window).scroll(function() {


  var oTop = $('#counter').offset().top - window.innerHeight;

  if (a == 0 && $(window).scrollTop() > oTop) {

    $('.counter-value').each(function() {

      var $this = $(this),

        countTo = $this.attr('data-count');


        countNum: $this.text()


          countNum: countTo



          duration: 2000,

          easing: 'swing',

          step: function() {



          complete: function() {





    a = 1;




<div id="counter">

    <div class="sqs-col sqs-col-4 counter-value" data-count="23" data-desc="% of 6th graders have tried alcohol">0</div>

This looks SO MUCH BETTER! One other question - I would like to format it so that a single word is not split into two separate lines. If I make the font size smaller, then I can get each word on its own line, but it looks very crowded with 3 text columns so close together.  

Is there a way I could stretch out the width of these columns to fit more text on a line? I also found that I can change 3n+1 to 2n+1 in ".counter-value nth-child (3n+1)" to get two columns instead of 3, but then the columns are left-justified and I can't figure out how to get it centered. How could I center it?

Use this code

@media screen and (max-width:767px) {
   width: 50% !important;
    clear: none !important;
.counter-value:nth-child(2n+1) {
    clear: left !important;
.counter-value:after {
    font-size: 12px;
