Hello everyone…This is the first post in the new “Freebies” category and I want to celebrate this by offering you something original and special.I`m giving away a free “Site Under Construction” Template ,to use it whenever you have a new website to launch or a re-design of your old website,or for anything else.

This template is a simple one page “Under Construction” template that allows you to keep your users informed,while you work at your website.The template has a jQuery slider containing 3 slides:one with your social pages,like Twitter or Facebook,one with a subscribe-by-mail form and another one with an area for writing what you do.I thing it`s very useful.Now you have to convince yourself of its functionality.

Main features of the Template

  • jQuery Countdown Script-thanks to Keith Wood.
  • Valid PHP e-mail subscription form-thanks to Abraham Soria from MetaMindVisual
  • jQuery Slider
  • .PSD File included
  • Modern and clean web typeface.
  • Tableless design and 100% CSS-based layout.
  • XHTML 1.0 Transitional valid.
  • CSS 2.1 valid.
  • Delivered with source .PSD file.
  • Clean CSS and HTML code.
  • Multi-browser compatibility. Tested under Firefox 3 , Safari 2 , Opera and IE6+.
  • Documentation about how to set up the page for your needs.


  • You may not claim intellectual and exclusive ownership to the template.
  • Do not provide the direct download link nor upload the template onto other servers for your own share. If you want to spread the words, just link to this article.
  • You may use it for your clients’ projects / websites.Unlimited number of projects.
  • In one word,you may use it as you want,but be a nice guy and remember me :) !

To set up the countdown, all you have to do is to open index.html and locate the jquery countdown function which is between lines 14 and 20.

$(function () {
var austDay = new Date("December 10, 2012 02:15:00");
    $('#defaultCountdown').countdown({until: austDay, layout: '{dn} {dl}, {hn} {hl}, {mn} {ml}, and {sn} {sl}'});

Just change the date with your own date.

This words being said,I thank you for downloading my template and if you want to thank me back,just leave me a comment.

If you want your friends to download the template,just spread the word!

Update: WordPress version available!

I recently created the WordPress version of the template to celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in my life as a wordpress developer: DeliciousThemes , a place where you`ll find and get Premium WordPress Themes ,accompanied with a great support team.

The theme is compatible with WordPress 3.3+ and has a great control panel .You don`t have to modify the code.All you need is inside the panel.

So,check out the Wp version too and thank me later :) :

    WOW.. this is the coolest and easiest template I’d never seen.
    I love it so much!!
    although I know nothing about scripts for website, but I’m trying to modify it, because your explanation is very user friendly!


  • Partha Sarathi Mohapatra

    Hey Madalin..great job mate.. thank you so much!! Could you help me out with the countdown thing though. It’s not working for me.. what do I need to do exactly? I tried following your document but haven’t been successful. Thanks in anticipation!

  • Partha Sarathi Mohapatra

    Hey Madalin..great job man! I am so happy to get started with my website with your stuff. Thanks mate!! I just wanted one small help though.. could you tell me how do I get the countdown clock work? I am not able to do that and there is also an ‘update’ mentioned in the document.. tried that as well. I dread I am missing something out! Thanks in anticipation!

  • Drew

    Thanks so much for the template. Very clean and professional design! I used it while constructing a site for my church.

  • Rose

    Thanks for your generosity and beautiful template!

    Just one question, how do I temporarily remove the social media page from the slider?

    I’ve tried marking it as a comment but it throws the alignment off.

  • Matt

    Many thanks for the template ! it’s cool

  • Nauman Hameed

    Nice work Madalin.

    A little improvment that you can think of in your spare time :). The time that we provide through “var austDay = new Date(“July 04, 2011 12:30:00″);” is the time of the machine where the web browser is running. If my server is on a different time zone and I want to indicate the time remaining in terms of the server time, I cannot do so.
