Which meter should I choose?

This comes down to personal preference. Broadly speaking, they all display progress of some kind. Let’s look at each one.

Thermometer

Our most traditional meter, and ideal for charities and fundraising due to its well known design. This meter gently animates it’s progress up the scale. Looks great with milestones too. It has a fixed size, so will always be consistent if you have multiple thermometers on one page.

Thermometer 2020

Our latest thermometer does a great job at centering on a page or within a widget. You can choose three different sizes under ‘Styling Options’.

Progress Bar

The second most popular meter, with a beautifully smooth animationm across the bar. Another meter suitable for milestones. This meter scales beautifully with it’s parent container, so works great with page builders.

New for 2021 is the icon progress bar. This bar allows you to upload a small icon or image that will travel along the meter. You can choose to add a trailing line to follow the icon. The trailing line color, as well as the background, can be changed under ‘Styling Options’. Depending on how you have set the meter up, milestones may work well, although they are not fully supported.

An Icon-based Progress Bar

Basic Track

This Pro Version meter has a more modern, sophisticated design. Like the thermometer, it animates progress upwards and looks great with milestones.

Radial

A seriously clever meter. This Pro Version design displays progress around a circle, filling up its outer edge, as it increases. Not suitable for milestones.

Scalable Thermometer

This is another thermometer, that works the same as the regular version. It’s advantage however, is that it scales with the container it is in, so is better suited to some strictly responsive websites, or where the amount of space for the thermometer is limited.

Infinite Meters

These are simply meters that have no goal. There are three types to choose from.

Custom Meter

This meter is simply incredible. It turns your company or organisation logo into a fully working progress meter. But not just your logo; you can use any image you want. A fundraising poster. A portrait of a loved one. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. You can read more about using the custom meter here.
