very nice work, and important. after I play around there in countdown builder, does there any capability to generate code then put it in my project ?

You can use the Cornerstone page editor to place Soon on the page. So you create a preset using the Visual Builder, then open a page you want to use Soon on and drag the counter on the page from the elements tab.

I meant, a code to place it into external website (another website)

If you want to do that you can use the JavaScript/jQuery version of Soon. http://codecanyon.net/item/soon-countdown-pack-responsive-jquery-plugin/9485513

The builder in this version will generate an HTML snippet.

Doesn’t work – can’t activate it: Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error. Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘[’ in /home/mmw/public_html/wp-content/plugins/soon-cornerstone/soon-cornerstone.php on line 196

Thanks again for the amazing plugin. Here’s it soon countdown working on our website: http://mixmasterwyatt.com/webinar/mixing-slate-digital-vtm-vbc/

You’re welcome! It’s looking great! :)

Cornerstone dev team just let me know they have fixed the problem in the next update.

Working Perfectly. Thanks for the great plug-in.

Hi PascalK, see my response below.

Thanks for the quick feedback pqina. I’m not an expert in coding so i will wait for the update. I will send you a message through the contact form.


Hi PascalK, I’ve got a fixed version ready and waiting for you, please contact me using the form on my profile page: http://codecanyon.net/user/pqina#contact

Hello! I’m interested in your plugin but I don’t really know what cornerstone means. I’m using Wordpress with Divi theme.

I’m planning on using it on something like this: http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/wedding?iso=20160916T17&p0=3404&msg=Gaston+%26+Cami&font=cursive&csz=1

I know how to create the page, design, and everything else, but I have no idea on how your plugin works. I’ve watched the video and It looks like I have to add it using a builder. Is there a shortcode or anything like that to place it on a page?

Can I create a page without your builder? I’m using Divi’s builder and I like the way it works.

Please let me know if this is the right plugin for me or not. Thank you!

Hi GastonGC, Cornerstone is a page builder available in x-theme. This version of Soon is specifically tailored for use with the Cornerstone page builder.

Soon is also available as a more generic WordPress plugin which should fit your use case perfectly. http://codecanyon.net/item/soon-countdown-pack-responsive-wordpress-plugin/10201472

Please let me know if you have any more questions! :)

Hi, I’ve made a mistake purchasing this item instead of http://codecanyon.net/item/soon-countdown-pack-responsive-wordpress-plugin/10201472 and now it doesn’t work. What can I do in order to purchase the correct item?

I have contacted the envato support. I hope they could send me a refund in order to purchase the correct one.

I’m sorry to hear you bought the wrong package. As you probably just found out, refunds are handled by Envato. I would of course have no problem with a refund in this situation. Hope everything gets sorted out, if you need any further assistance please let me know.

Hi, just bought your Countdown. It looks awesome. Unfortunately I’m not able to install it in Wordpress (Version 3.8.13).

I tried this steps: 1. Download your plugin 2. Open Wordpress administration site 3. Select page “plugin” 4. Click on “Install” 5. Uploaded your zip-file 6. Error message in german: there is no plugin, which can be installed

Any mistakes? Ideas? Thanks for your help

Ok, good news. It was my fault, the installation now is done. I just set up a new countdown, saved it and want to integrate it now. The bigger problem is, that I didn’t read it is only for “Cornerstone”. Seems that i downloaded the wrong plugin :-(

I hope envato is refunding the money so I can buy your “normal” wordpress countdown plugin.

Glad to read it’s working correctly. Currently on a short trip so it’s a bit difficult to do support. The element is in the demo video as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTZlOXgpekM

I’m back on Sunday.

Hello guys, i bought wrong version of your plugin. I bought Cornerstone instead of this http://codecanyon.net/item/soon-countdown-pack-responsive-wordpress-plugin/10201472

Can i exchange the Plugins to the proper one ?

Yes but i already downloaded the item and installed it so i cannot get the refund with the use of Envanto. I don`t have the Cornerstone so i just can`t use the plugin.

Should be okay with them, I’ve had buyers make this mistake before and as far as I can tell they’ve always agreed to refund. Should they need my permission, you hereby have it. :)

Ok thanks, i will do then.

Great plugin, works perfectly with X Theme and Cornerstone

Hello I need a countdown timer plugin that counts down to the last day of each month and starts again each month automatically. Would this be possible with this plugin? Thanks Ben

Hi Ben, Thanks for your interest in Soon. Unfortunately that is currently not possible with this plugin.

Hello, I have your plugin installed on the latest version of wordpress/x-theme and I can create counters under settings>soon but they do not show up in cornerstone under elements.

We’ve already picked up this issue over email. :)

Hey! Really love your plugin. Going to buy it. But i have a not typical question. Is it possible to replace countdown after it’s done with some sort of text? So when is 00 min and 00 sec it will disappear and show text, for example: “Hello”, etc. Searching for the function for my needs. Thank you!

One thing i’ve seen while editing a cornerstone page with your plugin in. When i try to add a new section or do a copy of existing section all the section disappear from the page. I tried to deactivate Soon and then is everything is fine. It’s not a big issue for me (i can live with it:D) but is exist.

Hope it helps to do the plugin better.

Hi! I’ll see if I can reproduce the issue in my test environment, thanks for reporting it! :)

Can you put multiple counters on the same page?

Yes, you can use as many counters on a page as you wish.

Hi, I just bought this plugin and do not have Cornerstone or at least I don’t know what it is.

I need to have it count up as it says it can do on the product pages.

Do I need Cornerstone to make it count up and work for any reason?

Did I purchase the right plugin or do I need the $17 one?

Thanks, Sean Sr.


You indeed need the other one :) It can be found here: https://codecanyon.net/item/soon-countdown-builder-responsive-wordpress-plugin/10201472

You can request a refund for the Cornerstone version here: https://codecanyon.net/refund_requests/new

Qored Purchased

Hi, please make a sale for Cyber Monday :)

Still not :-)


Qored Purchased

I bought it anyway :p Happy new year!

Appreciate it! Thanks! Happy new year to you as well :-)

hi guys loving the plugin, now is there a way to add the plugin on a widget like using a shortcode?

Hi! I just tested and it almost already worked with this snippet [soon_cornerstone name="blue" due="2017-11-05T08:15:10"][/soon_cornerstone] I’ve made some tiny changes to the plugin and will upload a new version today which will enable this feature.

Just uploaded a new version, should be up soon.

guys is not working naymore is stuck in 0:00:00:00 check the page ecuador-dotero.com/torneodotero

Hi, It seems the date has expired, it is set to 27th of April, so the counter should show zero right?


now yeah is expired but when i enter a future date is the same thing

Can you send me a link to a page with a future date? Best to use the support tab as that allows us to communicate over email. (note that I’m on vacation till June fifth so support might be slower than usual).
