Counting Number Block


Let’s make your numbers stand out by animating them while still keeping them SEO-friendly and accessibility-ready. The number can be counted up or down.

Key features

  • It can be counted up or down depending on the start value and the real value
  • SEO and Accessibility ready – Screen readers will read the actual number value, not the animated one.
  • It can be fit in any design
  • Highly customizable with a large range of options like duration, separator, decimal, etc.
  • You can animate it one time or multiple times whenever the block appears in the viewport
  • You can provide a prefix and/or a suffix value
  • The animated effect will not be shown in the reduced motion mode

Please take a look at these custom block patterns that use this block to see how it can be applied to real-world sites.

The developer was very responsive and helpful when I didn’t understand how to style it (using the block inspector settings). Thanks!

After testing a few different number counter block plugins, I found this one and haven’t looked back. It does exactly what is say on the tin, but also doesn’t over complicate things with trying to do everything and just sticks to being a great plugin. Highly recommend. If I could give 6*’s, I would!

This plugin did almost everything I needed, super happy with it. And then the following day, it did everything I wanted as Phi had updated it to include my idea. I definitely appreciate when developers listen and respond, you are awesome Phi!

Works as expected, also animates on scroll, great! Would be helpful to have some active class on block while animating.

Me ha gustado mucho, es sencillo, no genera pantallas internas de publicidad o de comprar la versión premium y hace justo lo que se necesita: animar números.Si además quieres complementarlo con algún icono tendrás que usar otros bloques para ello, he visto que el mismo autor tiene un bloque para añadir imágenes svg que seguramente combinara a la perfección con este.

This is exactly the way, I believe, plugin developers should be embracing blocks. Do one thing, and do it well. Make it feel native, don’t go overboard with options (“decisions not options”), and keep it light. Excellent stuff.
