The e-mail validation only checks for a ”@” sign and not a ”.”

contempoinc

You can add more regex rules by editing js/jquery.validationEngine.js

contempoinc

It’s been updated so now it checks for a ”.” as well

I would probably buy this, but I never understood that jquery script. I tried to follow examples and read their doc but just never understood how to make a custom time/date to countdown to.

If it weren’t for this huge issue, I would gladly buy your template :).

Great work!

Thanks, the wording in the plugin authors documentation is a little confusing but it’s pretty simple.

The demo site is counting down to January 26, 2010, take a look at the javascript below:

austDay = new Date(austDay.getFullYear() + 1, 1 - 1, 26);

The getFullYear() + 1 is saying get the current year +1 which is 2010. The next bit 1-1 is the month January, and the 26 is the date.

For instance if I wanted to countdown to April 7, 2010, the script would look like this:

austDay = new Date(austDay.getFullYear() + 1, 4 - 4, 7);

Hope that helps :) Cheers!

Thanks contempoinc, that’s definitely a major help. I didn’t understand what was going on with 1-1. I thought it was trying to do some mathematical equation.

I’ll be grabbing this later this evening after work! :).

Hey bud,

What is the font you’re using in this? It’s awesome! Already purchased just today! Thanks for making your hard work available.

Also… how does the “submit email” work… where does it go? Where do I set the settings?

Thanks, Bryce

Hi,

How do edit the script to be a few days instead of a full year? I’ve tried reading the websites you suggested but cannot figure it out.

Thanks, Bryce

Hello,

I am still needing help. Can you please help me with my issue?

Bryce

To set it for to five days from now, try the following.

     <script type="text/javascript">
                $(function () {
                        var liftoffTime = new Date();
                        liftoffTime.setFullYear(2009,8,25);
                        $('#count').countdown({until: liftoffTime, layout: '{dn} {dl}, {hn}
{hl}, {mn} {ml}, and {sn} {sl}'});
                        $('#year').text(liftoffTime.setDate());
                });
        </script>

Now the tricky thing is the Month in JavaScript starts at 0 for January so that makes September 8 instead of 9.

How can i make it countdown a couple days?

EDIT : nvm done it =)

contempoinc

Take a look at the comment above that snippet is set for a five day countdown

Can i get the countdown to be a couple hours?

Say..4?

Thanks

contempoinc

Take a look at the example below, this snippet will countdown to Sept 23, 2009 3:05:00 PM:

    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
            var liftoffTime = new Date("September 23, 2009 16:05:00");
            $('#count').countdown({until: liftoffTime, layout: '{dn} {dl}, {hn} {hl}, {mn} {ml}, and {sn} {sl}'});
            $('#year').text(liftoffTime.setDate());
        });
    </script>

Note the time in javascript is set in military style.

This might sound real silly…

But where do I put the script you told me to use?

......

$(function () { var liftoffTime = new Date(); liftoffTime.setFullYear(2009,8,25); $(’#count’).countdown({until: liftoffTime, layout: ‘{dn} {dl}, {hn} {hl}, {mn} {ml}, and {sn} {sl}’}); $(’#year’).text(liftoffTime.setDate()); });

You’ll need to replace the code in jquery.countdown.init.js which is located in the site_root > js folder. Replace lines 4-9 with the new code.

Goto the js/jquery.countdown.init.js file and replace the entire function that is there previously.

Note, don’t use the javascript tags :) Just start with $(function

Works like a charm!

Hi,

I really hate being a pain in the A… but it’s just not working for me. I did exactly as told and I get nothing displaying instead of having a count-down of any kind there now.

I’ve uploaded it to my website, http://www.wisekal.ca/test_directory

Must go tend to the baby… I’ll be back in a bit :) Thank you for the help.

Bryce

Open up jquery.countdown.init.js and replace all the code with this, then all you’ll need to do is set your date to countdown to.

Hi, I did manage to get it to work. Thank you so much :)

Awesome Script. 1 Question regarding the coundown setting. + 1 means 2010 but what if I mean this year? I tried

austDay = new Date(austDay.getFullYear() 1 , 11 - 11, 1);

for 1. November 2009 but countdown shows nothing.

contempoinc

Thanks, take a look at some of the previous comments above, they include a few new snippets to countdown to a few days from a set date as well as a few months from a set date.

      // Countdown Intilization, options can be set here.
// Full documentation on this can be found at <a href="http://keith-wood.name/countdown.html">http://keith-wood.name/countdown.html</a>

        $(function () {
            var liftoffTime = new Date("November 02, 2009 24:00:00");
            $('#count').countdown({until: liftoffTime, layout: '{dn} {dl}, {hn} {hl}, {mn} {ml}, and {sn} {sl}'});
            $('#year').text(liftoffTime.setDate());
        });
     

I am using this to display the countdown. It works like a charm in Firefox, In internet explorer I either get nothing or I get NaN Days, NaN Hours, NaN minutes, NaN seconds.

Safari does the same thing. All of these are PC versions of the browser.

Any thoughts?

contempoinc

Not really sure, I’ll look into it when I get some free time.

I posted six days ago about my IE issues and have not head anything other than “Not really sure, I’ll look into it when I get some free time”.

Any suggestions? If it won’t work like it is supposed to in IE it serves me no purpose. Even though I don’t use the browser there are still tons of peeps who do. Any thoughts would be great.

contempoinc

The default countdown script works in IE just fine, the other custom ones I’ve posted haven’t been tested in IE6 but it could be an issue with the jQuery countdown plugin from Keith Wood:”http://keith-wood.name/countdown.html”

I know the default you posted works fine. My problem is I need it to countdown for a Nov 2, 2009 launch date.

What you posted is for a countdown ending in 2010. There is quite a bit of time between now and 2010. What will enable it to countdown a date in the current year?
