This lightweight extension shows a count-down cycle and optional events are triggered when the specified date and time are reached. It comes in two versions: - standalone, that includes all the visual part with many customization and styling. - external (connection), that connects with other objects (usually text elements) in the page in order to allow the maximum designer's freedom.
1. Once you have designed your page as you usually do, drag and drop an extension instance in the workspace. 2. Optionally, in the extension properties dialog box, setup the visual style that matches your design. 3. Setup the future date and time that you want to trigger the events you need (like show and hide specific objects in the page). 4. Optionally, translate the labels to your language. 5. Preview or publish.
External connection version:
1. Design your page as you usually do. 2. Add in your page the counters holders (one element for the numeric part and one element for the text part); weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds (x2); remember, if weeks elements are not specified, the count-down cycle will be shown in days, and so on... 3. In the extension properties dialog box, enter the (external) elements names in order to connect with them. 4. Setup the future date and time that you want to trigger the events you need (like show and hide specific objects in the page). 5. Optionally, translate the labels to your language. 6. Preview or publish.
