[resolved] Can it count up? (5 posts)

    Is there a way to configure it to count up after the countdown reaches zero. The name implies it is a count"down" control. But I'm just wondering.

    So Days, Minutes, Second since the (t) time?

    At first I was thinking 'dude, that's a different plugin - the name's countdown' - But now, after some thought, it just might be interesting.

    So, you have a time... if this launch time is in the future, the counter countdowns to 'launch' and then, starts counting-up with t+ time.

    If the time is in the past, it just shows how long since the launch.

    Can you explain a bit more on how exactly you want to use it?

    Thanks for the reply Baden. At first it was a count down to when a union was going to strike if they didn't negotiate a deal. Well the time expired and there is still no deal. So my client asked if we could have it display a count "up" now so people can see how "late" they are in the contract negotiation.

    I looked in the documentation and I didn't see any shortcodes that facilitated functionality like that, but it might be a nice feature for a future release.

    Thanks again for your reply.

    Hi Baden,

    same interest here - different reason to ask for it:
    We set up a web page counting down to our wedding date. Now, after the wedding, the counter stays on 0. Would be nice if we could just change the title to "Days since our great day" because the people still visit it to download fotos and post comments back to us.

    Good News!
    Please update to version 2.2.4 (currently only available from the Plugin Oven)

    If using the shortcode:
    set the launchtarget attribute to 'countup' like so:

    [tminus t="2012-09-12 15:30:00" launchtarget="countup"/]

    If using the sidebar Widget:
    Simply select 'Count Up' under When Countdown Reaches Zero > Launch Target

    Let us know if everything is working OK for you... if so, we will push it to the WordPress Repo.
