Countdown Timer 1.3

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 It might be outdated.

From the WP Plugins Page:

I’ve already received some preliminary feedback on 1.2 (thanks Dave), so I’ve made a couple of updates. First, there are actually instructions for configuring the onHover Time Format option. Second, if you leave onHover Time Format blank, it will remove the dashed underline on the timer so no one is confused.
I also fixed a really stupid bug, I never but a stripslashes in. So if you tried using something that needed escaping (such as an apostrophe), you would get a slash. That doesn’t happen anymore. Enjoy!

  1. Yay… I love this Countdown timer, simple but useful (especially to remind my friends of my birthday… which is now only 251 days, 7 hours, 40 minutes away.

  2. nice one, pretty easy to use. it’d be nice to have a way to customize the announcement of the event just like the option to customize the hover text.

  3. hey great pluging with excellant integration into the wordpress admin.

    but i’m just wondering, is it possible to display the countdown inside a post i.e within the loop?


  4. You can hardcode the countdown within the loop, but if you want to insert it into a post you have to create a filter that catches some insertion string and then performs the appropriate action. I’ll add that feature to the next release. In the meantime, the easiest way would be to use the exe-php plugin (as you said).
