Description

This is a countdown hack that allows users to put a custom countdown using BB Code.

Example:
[countdown=12/31/2020 5:00 AM;It is finally here]Count down:[/countdown]
The countdown will count down till it reaches the date then it will show the text in the option after the date. The param is the text before the countdown.

The date is in the format of m/d/yyyy h:mm AM.
m is for month.
d is for day.
y is for Year with 4 digits like 2008 not 08.
h is for the hour.
The last m is for minute and needs to be 2 digits.
The AM can be AM or PM.

How can this be used in the header and not in sig? I am looking to have the timers on the frontpage to advertise an event.

This mod was based off of this. You can use that on any page through the template system or on another page. The mod was made to be used as bb code not as something to add on to a template or page.

Does this take into account time zones?

For instance if I'm in America and another user is in New Zealand will they count down to same time despite the time differences?

Cheers

This is incomplete, text does not work and there is no child.

Can you write better instructions about what the following and what the parameters do?

Your description is vague and it seems a lot of people are confused by this. I understand that {option} is set to "Yes", but what do we put in the {param} part? Or do we even need this?

An actual example code with the fields put in there would be great...

Not working for me on 3.8.2.

EDIT:

I had installed it manually, but when I went back and used the product, it is sort of working now. When you post it (I used Quick Reply) it did not show up, but after I refreshed the page I could see the countdown. However, the {param} text is not showing up? Ideas?
