    I have everything set up, and the plugin kind of works. The countdown displays where I have placed it, but doesn’t dynamically countdown after I’ve enabled the javascript countdown. It just calculates the time once at load.

    The odd thing is at the bottom of the admin page, the countdown does dynamically countdown under the Example Display header….

    Thoughts?

  • Your theme probably does not call wp_head and/or wp_footer, which is needed in order to properly hook into WordPress. This is an issue with your theme. However, it’s generally pretty easy to add the necessary code to your theme files.

    The reason that the countdown works in the admin page is that different hooks are used (which are specific to the admin pages).

    You can learn more about the hooks at:

    Ah, thank you. Works great now.

    I’m having a similar problem, only its not even displaying as an example on the admin page.

    Its not counting down unless you refresh. I have the header and footer hooks in the theme.

    Please advise.

    thank you

    isisjade,

    Do you have “Enable JavaScript countdown” set to “Yes”?

    Hi,
    I cannot seem to change the countdown time display on the admin page and I cannot seem to update events. Anyone else have this problem? Any tips would be GREATLY appreciated. I am trying to add an hour, minute, second countdown to my posts. This plugin is awesome otherwise!
    Thanks in advance!
