    Like the title says. I have two countdowns and no description or list of countdowns is shown.

    I think they are only shown if active, is it the case ?

    Btw, do you see them on the manage page ?

    It seems to work only when countdowns are present.

    What is the URL of the "Dedicated Countdowns Page"? It seems not to work at all. When a countdown is active, there is no link to it's page...?

    I do not mean the "xfa_mcdn_manage" template.... where do I find the link from the countdown to the "xfa_mcdn_countdowns" page....? It is totally missing... it is not in the sidebar nor in the top countdown container... o_O

    The link displays in the navigation bar if you have activated it through the options.

    Link is countdowns otherwise.

    Oh.... I deactivated it because it takes too much space/attention in the main navigation for a simple countdown feature...

    Suggestion: Can you somehow incorporate the link to the dedicated countdown page within the sidebar widget please?

    I would say:

    Let the "Link" (you can insert in the countdown creation) override the Dedicated Page. If no link is inserted, the countdown title will bring you to the dedicated page... that would be very cool.

    In fact I thought about that, not sure this is a good idea.

    The countdowns are not displayed when expired and you could have countdowns running on page but not in sidebar.

    Doesn't that contradict itself?

    No I meant, sidebar countdowns are not displayed when expired.
    However, there could be countdowns running on the dedicated page.
    So the link wouldn't be there with your proposal.

    No worries... here you go buddy...

    Let the Widget Title be a general link to the dedicated page...

    When no countdowns are active anymore...

    The title links to the dedicated page and the "past countdowns" link is just redundant for convenience.

    Basically its the summary of everything in the widget. I think this is more user friendly.
