Create a countdown timer on your website – nice & easy

I created for a couple of posts on my website a countdown timer, to provide more usefull information to my readers.

I received a comment last week of someone asking me how I did it. Well here’s a howto:

- Download and activate this wordpress plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-countdown-timer/

- Create your post and add the timer (like in the printscreen below)

  1. Thank’s Benwake. Can i Embed it for vbulletin ?

    • Normally, it’s a wordpress plugin, so I guess it only works with wordpress.
      But when I look at the code, maybe I have a clue.
      Put this in your header:
      <link rel=’stylesheet’ id=’sct_css_countdown-css’ href=’LINK/jquery.countdown.min.css?ver=3.2.1′ type=’text/css’ media=’all’ /> <script type=’text/javascript’ src=’LINK/jquery.countdown.min.js?ver=3.2.1′></script>
      And in your page:
      <div dir=”ltr”>[sct date=”10/10/2011 10:00″ align=”center” size=”1″]</div>
      But you can still embed my page with an iframe.
      Hope it helps :)

  2. How did you put it in header ?

    • I put it in the post with this line of code:
      [sct date=”<strong>10/5/2011 8:40</strong>” align=”<strong>none</strong>” size=”<strong>1</strong>”]
      text in bold can be changed ofcourse

  3. your code in first reply to put on vbulletin forum’s header didn’t work Ben
    any other solution ?

  4. Thank for this pligin!
