EXTENSION Countdown/Count-up timer/clock

Well I read somewhere in the forum today, someone was asking for this. A sort of count down watch for any event.
This is a small utility extension.
You need to feed a future date and then the countdown shows on the webpage. On reaching that specific time/date, a message is displayed which can be an announcement of a program that you want to launch on that specific date.

Extension has been developed by me. Original free script from www.hashemian.com

Demo : http://www.lucknowwebs.com/c.html

No pdf is enclosed in the zip folder. It is too simple an extension. Read the explaination on the download page or in the extension itself

Download Count Down Extension from http://www.lucknowwebs.com look for the "Download Extensions" link at the top of the page

Good evening and thank you for this extension!

Could you add the function to change edit "hours, minutes, seconds" in any language if is it possible?

Thank you very much!

Best regards.

Thank's for your great work.
I have a question. I have to display only a seconds counter. I need to display by exemple 15 seconds, and the counter may count down until reach 0. That's all.
Is it possible to do it with your extension without specify any date ?

This counter counts towards a particular time or date. It can not start counting from a given time at the page load.
Example: If you want to start down counting from 15 seconds every time the page is opened, that is not possible

Did you publish the page? It will not show up in the publish preview.

I'm also interested in how to increase the font size in the counter. Is this possible, please? Thanks

Don't know if it matters, but I kept the page as html, not php. The only things I see different between your source code and mine is that you haven't replaced the site url with your site - it still shows lucknowwebs.com. That is probably the problem.

Also, the Display Format is switched on yours vs mine, i.e.:

Yours:
DisplayFormat = "%%S%% Seconds, %%M%% Minutes, %%H%% Hours, %%D%% Days.";

Mine:
DisplayFormat = "%%D%% Days, %%H%% Hours, %%M%% Minutes, %%S%% Seconds.";

Everything else looks identical for the extension.

Hope this helps somehow.

NOTE: Still nothing from anyone on whether it's possible to change the font size???

white bacground colour red font
counter is active
set to - to count down
Format = %%D%% Days, %%H%% Hours, %%M%% Minutes, %%S%% Seconds.
finnish message =default
Ive tried a couple of web site urls but did not work then i found one that worked
heres one that works my-test-site.hostoi.com
heres one that dont pedropecker.site50.net
another that dont work lucknowwebs.com
