shortcode countdown next event not working

the given shortcode of the countdown next event worked until the related event finished today. When the old event disappeared in the calendar I copied the shortcode to the next event. But countdown does not display again. Any idea?

    Hello Ruediger,

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    If you wish to have a countdown for each instance of events, use the event_countdown shortcode instead for each instance, and specify the ID of each instance of the event in the shortcodes.

    [event_countdown id="1" event_id="1"]

    To get the ID for each instance, click the "Edit Instances" link in the sidebar of the event editor. Then, while hovering your mouse pointer over each instance, you will see the numerical ID in the URL displayed at the bottom-left of your browser.

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Have a great day!

    Hello Dharmendra,

    I have seen the countdown again on the site. But it did not maintain the ccs from the former shortcode as I need the digits and letters in color white. Can you do this as the final step for me?

    Thanks a lot for your support.

    Best regards

    Hello Ruediger,

    Hope you're well today, I am glad it worked :slight_smile:

    Could you please try adding the class="countdown-class" attribute to the short-code to apply the CSS?

    So it looks like:

    [event_countdown id="1" event_id="1" class="countdown-class" ]

    You can add below mentioned CSS code to your theme's style.css file to display digits and letters in color white.

    .countdown-class{ color:white}

    Hope it helps :slight_smile: Please feel free to ask more question if you have.
