    Robert,

    Do you wish to display the current date, or the target ‘launch’ date next to the countdown? Currently there is no way to auto-display any date info, but this could be added in the next release.

    Must it be beside, or would above and/or below the countdown also work?

    I want the target ‘launch’ date. I must show this date in several places. If the date on the widget is changed, it should change everywhere else. I think it would be ideal if I could query the date from the database. Does that work? (And how?)

    thx.

    Ah, good idea… so something like a new [launchdate] shortcode that will automatically insert the date anywhere.

    The default format would be the one set in the Settings > General > Date Format, and maybe the format can be overwritten using any of the php date formats such as:
    [launchdate format="Y-m-d H:i:s"]

    The only issue is that there is no way to assign which countdown to use. As T-Countdown Widget/Shortcodes do not have id’s. We’ll look into this, but most likely such a feature would be something that we would add to T-Countdown Control. Then the full shortcode might look like:
    [launchdate cid="173" format="Y-m-d H:i:s"]

    What do you think?

    On second thought, this makes no sense for the free version, as you have to set up the countdown with the shortcode anyway.
