Countdown Timer 0.921 Release

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 15 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Go check it out. This is the first update in exactly two months. Sorry for the delay. I hope to release version 1.0 in a few more weeks.

  1. I like the extras you put in.
    I made a text modification – deleted the “minutes” field, because it became too long for my sidebar with the “ago” addition.

    keep up the great work!

  2. it’s be nice if your script offered a more customizable out put and the hability to add links…
    Oct. 8 – Event Name.


    Oct. 8 – Event Name. In 3 days.

    and all from the admin panel… because i just love the interface to manage your plugin (instead of editing a text file and uploading to the server like others countdown plugin)

  3. I doubt that I would have the date displayed, mostly because space is already very limited. What I would be more tempted to do is use the ‘title’ tag to displa y the date. When you mouseover the the event name, a box would appear that would show what the date/time of the event is. If you still would like to have the dates shown, I can help you modify the code (it’s open source for this reason). If you know any PHP, you would need to add something along the lines of:

    date(“M. j”, $dates[“oneTime”][$i][“date”])

    In the current version I’m working on releasing (v1.0 currently at v0.964), this would be added to line 273 and, with the above code added, would look something like this:

    272.     for($i = 0; $i < $numDates; $i++){
    273.          echo date(“M. j”, $dates[“oneTime”][$i][“date”]) . ” – : . cdt_format($dates[“oneTime”][$i][“text”], $dates[“oneTime”][$i][“date”], (date(“Z”) – (get_settings(‘gmt_offset’) * 3600)), $dates[“oneTime”][$i][“timeSince”]);
    274.     @next($dates[“oneTime”]);

    I do like your idea of the adding links, so I will put that on the “to do” list. It won’t make version 1.0, but look for it by version 1.5. Thanks for the input and let me know if you need any help with the modifications.

  4. sounds good.

    i just love the interface you use, it’s very easy to add events.

    the format for date is kinda strict. ie: it could autodetect 03-10 as something that happens every year on 03-10, instead of 03-10-2005 which happens only one time (using 12:00AM as default) kinda like this.. but well, this are just suggestions, keep up the good work.
