    Thank you for contacting us.

    The alternative widget that may be more suitable in your case is a Day Countdown. It should let you to set the countdown based on a date with time.

    Please give it a try and let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Hi, thank you, yes this is much better, the only thing I need to do is centered and make it smaller, there was an option for alignment but it is still aligning to the right, can you help me?

    Thank you,

    Please try decreasing the widget field width (e.g. to 500), it should center the field and make it smaller.

    Thank you.

    Hello jabedoya60,

    I have fixed this issue by injecting the following custom css code in your form:

    .supernova .form-all, .form-all {

        margin-top: -15px !important;


    I would suggest you to please check your webpage again and see if your embedded form appears as expected.

    Thank you!
