KB Countdown Widget

Displays years/months/days since, until, or between events. Great for tracking a pregnancy (with a bar graph!), time until an election, or whatever. U

To use this plugin as a widget (recommended), you must have either WordPress v2.2+ or the Sidebar Widgets plugin installed and running.

  1. Upload kb_countdown.php and kb_countdown\kb_countdown_bargraph.php (preserving directory structure) to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory. The second file is necessary only if you want to use the bargraph feature.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. To use as a widget, add the new KB Countdown widget to your sidebar through the Presentation (or Design) => Widgets menu in WordPress. You'll find that the widget has several options, but only the first couple are required. If you want more (up to 9) KB Countdown widgets, scroll down and increase the allotment, just like you would with text or RSS widgets.

You don't have to use this as a widget; you can also use it in a page/post or in your template. To do so, read the instructions in kb_countdown.php. Note that this is an advanced use and will require moderate familiarity with PHP.

If you plan to use iCal data, you will also need to have the iCal Events plugin activated.


Be advised: If you post your support questions as comments below, I probably won't see them. If the FAQs don't answer your question, you can post support questions at the KB Countdown plugin page on my site.
