Hot Counters module is developed specially for the needs of Startup business template. However, you can use it in combination with any other template as we released it as a standalone module for Joomla. You probably noticed that many modern websites (especially on portfolio and corporate websites) contains a block with several numbers. These numbers give some facts about the company to the visitors. These numbers usually represent number of projects accomplished, number of clients, partners, store locations, etc.
Using this module, you can add such a block on your website easily. All you need to do is to enter numbers and what the numbers represent in form of text and/or image in the module parameters.
This module is powered by jQuery, so it doesn't just show the numbers statically. The module will count up each of the numbers to the final value.

For users who are accessing your site using the mobile devices, layout will be set vertically by default (using media queries). You can set the breakpoint screen width in the module options.
As we mentioned before, you can make up to 10 counters. Each counter has its own block with options:
