Introducing beCounted

Introducing beCountedYesterday we released version 1.0 of beCounted to the WordPress community via the WordPress.org Plugins repository. beCounted creates a multiple item count up widget based on annual statistics showing the number of occurrences since the page was loaded.

The default statistics that come with beCounted are a set of mythological creatures, including dragons, mermaids, unicorns, and zombies. Administrators can add any number of statistics to this counter, can customize all of the styling, and can add a custom credit blurb beneath the counter display with the ability to add hyperlinks.

Note: We originally created this WordPress plugin for our client’s website, Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach, calling it the Animal Kill Counter.
