Simple Countdown Widget

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Just want to give an update on v1.1 It's now in development and will be the next release, there will be no 1.0.4.

Some of note worthy changes that are coming to 1.1.x

  • Change from plugin to an Application (I will provide a detailed guide on how to upgrade).
  • Multiple styles/templates for the countdown widget.
  • A clock widget, shows the time in any timezone you set.
  • Javascript polling for visual real time counting.
  • language string improvements. 

If you have any suggestions for 1.1.0 send them in.

A sneaky peak:

Would be cool if you could style it into a box, and then each number in a container etc.

Thanks for the suggestion, This is apart of the "Multiple styles/templates for the countdown widget." :)

That is true with 1.0 of the widget it uses the core formatInterval that combines everything into a single string. In 1.1 I have a custom formatInterval that will allow this type of styling.

So 1.1 has changed plans it will stay as a plugin. I still have a couple things I want to add and do a clean up, A beta should be ready next week for anyone that wants to test it out send me a PM and I'll send you the beta file when it's ready.

Some progress pics.

only downside is if I upgrade to 4.1 and when they do "full release" I'm having to do full install all over again.. which I'm not ok with lol

Hi guys,

This plugin will work on 4.0.13 and 4.1. It will look a little different on 4.0.13 because of the css class I'm using to colour the boxes.

I just installed it on 4.0 but did not see a way to control the color or formatting.

This is one thing that changed from the previews to the release of 1.1.0 there is the only one style, each time unit is wrapped in the css class ipsWidget_title. This is an oversight  and I'll address it in 1.1.1.

If you want to edit the template before i release 1.1.1 you can find it at core > global > plugins > Countdown.
