    Hi,

    i am using the countdown timer together with the atahualpa theme for two years now without any issue. No since wordpress 3.4 the javascript countdown is not counting anymore on the website, although it does on the admin page. wp_footer() is still called from the theme and i can see javascripts from e.g. google sitting in the footer. any idea what goes wrong? you can check it at blog.webcontrol.de

    Regards

    Michael

    @ntrast: This is a known problem which has been fixed in 3.0.2 :)

    @fergbrain: thx for your fast reply. I have updated to 3.0.2 but the javascript counter still is not working. The script is not visible in the footer while others are.

    @ntrast: Does it work in the admin page?

    Hi, thanks for the fix, but the "max=##" argument of [fergcorp_cdt] has stopped working. I'm trying to display 2 counters (of 4 queued), but as long as max is set, it wont display any.

    @fergbrain: yes it works in the admin page but not in the frontend. It did well in the past. I updated wordpress and it stopped. I already uninstalled it and reinstalled to no avail. If i look into the source code of the page i cant see the counter javascript in the footer. However i can see other js in the footer and wp_footer() is called.

    @ntrast: It looks like you're using Atahualpa 3.7.7 as your theme. I downloaded the theme and tried it and the Java Script works. If you can arrange it, I'd be happy to poke around your site and see if I can identify the issue. If so, shoot me an email: andrew@fergcorp.com

    @povrazor: The issue appears to come up when you have previous dates that you aren't showing. I'm working on a fix for it now. What are the dates you are queuing and what is the exact shortcode you are using?

    Yes you are correct. I have a few dozen old dates. The shortcode I use is:

    [fergcorp_cdt max=2]

    The upcoming dates are:

    Sat, 25 Aug 2012 08:00:00
    Sat, 25 Aug 2012 08:00:00
    Mon, 27 Aug 2012 08:00:00
    Tue, 28 Aug 2012 08:00:00

    As you can see, I typically queue up two starting dates, which I expect to roll over to the the later two dates once the first two expire. I've been using the countdown clock this way for a few years now.

    Also of note, I just noticed the date formatting has changed.
