Recurring Timer Widget

Displays a countdown timer in a widget for a recurring event.

Displays a countdown timer in a widget for a recurring event.

It uses string-to-time (strtotime) formats which can simple or very complex (and confusing).

The widget has many CSS classes and IDs to style it with, but it's been left purposely unstyled so you can format it in whatever way you want. The included recurring-style.css-example file shows how you can move the time and time labels around for a custom look. You can customize recurring-style.css to your liking without worry that it will be overwritten when you upgrade (only recurring-style.css-example would updated).

Known issues:

  • It requires a browser refresh before the "next next" event. i.e. If you're viewing the widget and the timer is set for a daily event, the timer will countdown to today's event, then countdown to tomorrow's event. But it will not countdown to the day after tomorrow's event unless the browser is refreshed.
  • Events that occur more than once in a 24-hour period have not been tested and may not work.
