This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Display multiple animated counters into your WordPress site.


The plugin is compatible with Gutenberg, so you can add the custom block called CountUp to your posts and pages. Check the wiki for more details.


It’s very easy to use this plugin, you can use the shortcode after install it, but there are two ways to use the plugin:

The first way is:

[countup start="your-value" end="your-value" decimals="your-value" duration="your-value"]

The second way. To use this format you need to check the Use the end number inside the shortcode? setting in the plugin option page:

[countup start="the-start-number" decimals="your-value" duration="your-value"]the-end-number[/countup]


You can use the shortcode in two ways, as mentioned before. If you are using the first way:

[countup start="0" end="55" decimals="2" duration="5" prefix="my_prefix" scroll="false"]

If you are using the second way (remember to check the Use the end number inside the shortcode?):

[countup start="0" decimals="2" duration="5"]55[/countup]

Copy and paste any example in one of your posts and test.

Sadly, this plug uses the “target-densitydpi” key which is no longer supported on chrome so it generates errors and simply stops running.

Hi Roel, Thanks for this plugin. Its very easy to use. However, I had a few feature requests: I want the counter to run on a decimal number. Something like 0 to 2.5 in 1 second. I tried using [countup start=”0″ end=”2.5″ decimals=”1″ scroll=”true” duration=”1″], but that ends at 25 instead of 2.5 I want a suffix, but want it in a slighly smaller size than the number. So in 2.5 Lakh, Lakh needs to be in a smaller font. If I put it outside the counter div, it goes to the next line. Is it possible to have run the counter whenever someone scrolls up and down and comes to that section? If these features are already available, pls let me know how to implement them. Thanks! Priyanka

This plugin is the only one out there that allows you to use dynamic number directly from the database by using shortcode within a shortcode. For instance [countup start=”1″ decimals=”0″ duration=”5″][users_count][/countup] Thank you for adding this functionality. That person who gave you 4 stars needs to resubmit his review as it was his only reason for not giving you 5 stars! I’d give you 6 stars to cover it 😉 Thanks again!

  • IMPROVE: Remove Gutenberg dependencies, those aren’t needed anymore.


  • FIX: Decimal counters shows as integers instead of floats.


  • FIX: JavaScript file wasn’t loading properly in some posts and pages for shortcodes.


  • FIX: Main script was loading as type JavaScript instead of Module.


  • Compatible with Gutenberg. Now the plugin has its own Gutenberg Block.
