Topic: Countdown plugin doesn't display properly on browser window resize

DashMarketingGroup priority asked 10 months ago

I am working with the countdown plug-in using the following code:


    <div class="container">
    <div class="row mb-2">
        <div class="col-md-12 text-center">
            <div id="counter" data-mdb-countdown-text-style="fs-3" class="w-25" data-mdb-countdown-label-style="fs-5">
                <div class="countdown-unit countdown-days" data-mdb-countdown-label="days"></div>
                <div class="countdown-unit countdown-hours" data-mdb-countdown-label="hours"></div>
                <div class="countdown-unit countdown-minutes" data-mdb-countdown-label="minutes"></div>
                <div class="countdown-unit countdown-seconds" data-mdb-countdown-label="seconds"></div>


    $(document).ready(function () {
        const counter = document.getElementById('counter');
        new Countdown(counter, {
            countdown: "31 August 2023 23:59:59",


#counter {
width: 60%;
font-size: 24px;


What I have noticed is that when I resize the browser window, the countdown plugin does not resize responsively to the new window size, as shown below.

Here is what the countdown timer looks like in a full browser window: Countdown plugin in normal browser window

And here is what happens when I resize the browser window: Countdown plugin in resized window

The rest of the page content resizes responsively as I change the browser window size, but the countdown plugin does not. The left part of the countdown is cut off.

Any explanation why this is happening?

It's not a good approach for resizing. You expect the plugin to fit in space smaller than its elements. You've set font size with data-mdb-countdown-text-style="fs-3", the font won't get smaller than that.

You can change the font size or display if you want to fit the content.
