Divi has a number counter module that allows you to enter a number, add a title and a percent sign, and style it with the common styling options. It’s a good module, but what if you wanted a few more features, such as adding your own prefixes and suffixes, and even creating a circle counter? A third-party plugin called Counter for Divi does that and more.
Counter for Divi allows you to count by numbers, dates, or posts and you can choose how it does the count. Add decimal places and show percentages with either positive or negative numbers. Adjust the animation duration. The circle feature lets you create pie charts and circle charts, and adds a scale to the circle.
Counter for Divi Module
Counter for Divi adds a new module to the Divi Builder called Counter. It’s dark blue and includes the developer’s logo so it stands out. I like it when developers do this so I can see quickly which modules are third-party modules.
The content tab includes settings for the text prefix and suffix, counter type (choose between number and circle), count (choose between numbers, dates, and posts), decimal place, separators, count to, count from, and background.
The Design tab includes settings for the text, counter, number text, spacing, border, box shadow, and animation.
Choosing Circle in the Content tab adds a few circle options to the Design tab. Here you can adjust the line width, line cap, track color, etc.
The Advanced tab adds fields for the number container, prefix, suffix, hover, etc.
Using Counter for Divi
Choose the type of counter you want, what you want it to count, and enter to the number you want to count to and the number you want to count from. I’ve also added a comma for the thousandths separator and forced decimal places to 2.
Here are the standard settings. I’ve added a light blue and green gradient so it doesn’t blend with the blog. I’ve added the description as a prefix. Anything you enter into the fields is displayed. You’ll need to add a space or two to get the look you want.
Circle adds percent. All the other settings are here. Add the percent if you want just part of the circle to complete.
The circle takes the full width of the column. I’ve placed it into a three-column row so it doesn’t fill the screen.
Dates adds the type of date to count. Choose between seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years.
It adds date pickers so you can count to and from specific dates.
It displays the number of days. It’s showing here with my suffix.
Posts lets you choose the post types to count and has an offset number to count to or from.
It displays the number of posts, pages, and projects that I have published minus the 1 I chose to offset by. I’ve added the description as a suffix.
Counter for Styling Divi Examples
Here are a few styling examples of number and circles.
This one uses the date counter. I’ve changed the background of the section and added shadow to the module. I’ve also changed the color of the text.
For this example I’ve added a heading using a text module and image modules to create a simple pricing table. I made the text white and changed the font to ACME.
For the next example I’ve added other modules to create some calls to action. I’ve using an image, text, counter, and button as seen in the image above.
For the one on the left I’ve added a background color to the column within the row settings and added padding at the bottom. It creates a card with a purchase button.
For the one on the right I added the image within the background of the column within the row settings so all of the modules within that column will appear over it. I’ve changed the text for each of the modules to white and added a shadow to the counter module’s text.
Here are some circles. For the one on the left I’ve reduced the size to 250 and changed the text and circle color to blue.
For the one in the center I added a prefix, changed the text and circle to purple, and change the stop position to 60. I changed the line width to 10 and left the track color default.
For the one on the right I added a suffix, changed the color for the text, circle, and track, and set the line width to 20. The circle percent is 75, but I changed the circle rotation to 80 so it’s offset.
For these I’ve changed the size of the circles, set the font location, changed the font weights, and added shadow effects to the fonts. For the one on the right I’ve added a border with rounded corners and a border shadow.
For the one on the left I’ve changed the bar color and set the track color to match the background. I’ve set the line width to 50 and the line cap to round.
For the one in the middle I’ve changed the bar color and left the track color to default. The line width is 100 and the line cap is set to Butt. The circle percent is 45.
The one on the left uses square for the line cap. Line width is 75. I changed the bar color and set the track color to match the background.
For these examples I’ve added the scale. For the one on the left I’ve changed the bar color to blue and set the track color to match the background. The line width is 100. I set the scale color to match the bar color and set the scale length to 10.
For the one in the middle I’ve changed the bar and track color, changed the line width to 15, and rotated the circle to 38. For the scale, I’ve set the length to 20 and changed the color to black so it will stand out.
For the one on the right I’ve changed the number color, font, and set it to italics. I’ve also changed the color of the circle and track. The line width is set to 71, the circle size is 330, and the circle rotate is 203. I’ve left the scale size at 5 (which is the default) and changed the color.
I like the scale features. Changing the scale size and colors can create some interesting designs. I’d like to be able to set the scale width. This would let them stand out more and even create a look of gears. I’m sure this can be done with CSS.
Here are a few pie charts. For the one on the left I changed the bar and track colors, set the line width to 160, and the line cap to Butt. I also changed the font to Actor, reduced its size, and added a text shadow.
For the middle I changed the track color to match the background and removed the number.
For the one on the right I changed the colors of the bar, track, and font, and added a suffix and a text shadow.
These are actually easy to make but I was confused at first because I was using the slider, which stopped at 100, instead of entering a number manually. You can even add too much which can have an effect of negative space in the center.
Using Counter for Divi with Extra
It also works with Extra. I didn’t have to make any adjustments to work with Extra, but the sidebar did change the effect of the pie charts. I had to change the line width.
License and Purchase
There are two licenses to choose from:
- Single site – $9.99
- Unlimited sites – $29.99
You can see the purchase information at the developer’s website
I found Counter for Divi to be easy to use. It works well with other modules and has a lot of design features. I especially like the effect I got with the number counter as a call to action. I also like what can be done with circles. It’s a great choice for creating pie charts or any type of circle chart.
If you’re interested in a number counter module with more features than the standard Divi module, I recommend taking a look at Counter for Divi.
