Feature Request: Countdown Ticker

Postby Pfeiffer » Sat Feb 19, 2011 8:04 pm

I thought it would be neat if we could put a little "Days Until Starting" ticker in the bottom of our journal, which calcs off our start date. The logic is trivial, but implementation might not be. What do you think? :idea:

That would be pretty simple. Let me dwell on it a bit. If done incorrectly it could come off a bit cheesy, like something you'd see on a myspace page.

Let me see where it might fit in.

Thanks for the suggestion, they are always appreciated!

Very easy to do - I got mine from Robert Hashemian
http://www.hashemian.com/

Code: Select all
<script>
TargetDate = "04/20/2012 6:00 AM UTC-0500";
BackColor = "#333333";
ForeColor = "#CCCCCC";
CountActive = true;
CountStepper = -1;
LeadingZero = true;
DisplayFormat = "%%D%% DAYS UNTIL THE JOURNEY BEGINS";
FinishMessage = "Jason's hike has begun!";
</script>


Get the script here:[url]
