vB Version: 3.5.4 Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 142
Released: 09 Feb 2006 Last Update: 07 Jun 2006 Downloads: 304
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

(inspired by this thread: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=107226)

This little AddOn gives your users the option to show a custom countdown timer at the bottom of their signature.

Features:
  • Fully configurable via UserCP (see screenshot)
  • BB-Code can be used for eventname and overmessage
  • fully phrased/templated, nothing hardcoded and so fully customizable
  • leading days or hours with a value of "0" are not shown
    (so it shows "42minutes" rather then "0days 0hours 42minutes")

Installation:
Painless:
  • Upload "plugins_usercountd.php" to ".../forum/includes"
  • Import the product .XML

DONE
That's it.
No template edits, no nothing


Usage:
Go into your UserCP -> Edit Options
On the very bottom you will find the options for the Countdown Timer.
Set it to whatever you like, if "Enable" is set to "Yes" the timer will automatically be shown on the bottom of your sig, set to "No" will hide/disable the time display



Have fun


Update 1.10
IF YOU UPDGRADE FROM A PREVIOUS VERSION, BE SURE TO UNISTALL THE CURRENTLY INSTALLED ONE BEFORE INSTALLING THE UPGRADE!
(unfortunately all events will be lost)
  • [FIX] Phrased the last three things that were not (Yes/No of the enable radio and main description)
  • [NEW] Added Usergroup Permissions for the countdown!
    In the usergroupmanager it now has an area "User Countdown Permissions" where the admin can allow/enable or disallow/disable the countdown timer for each usergroup.

If the usergroup permissions do not work, or even don't show up at all, you might need to rebuild the bitfield using this URL:

Wow. First post. I always get tingles when this happens.

Will install immediately. Nice idea.


EDIT: Installed. Awesome. Flawless.

I can use this for things, such as, well, counting down to my next date. Glad you put the "years" option in there.

Question. Is there anyway we can make it so only admins or specified groups can use this feature?

Hmm, this can be added, yes.

I am currently hunting another flaw I just encountered.
On my live board it doesn't save the settings.... No idea why (yet), on my testinstall it does....

Working fine on mine, with Netscape and IE; it saved the settings, and is counting down appropriately.
