Countdown Timer in signature
Mod Version: 1.3.00, by Howell (Member) Howell is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (13 votes - 4.31 average) Installs: 180
Released: 14 Jun 2008 Last Update: 14 Jun 2008 Downloads: 859
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

Original Modification by Hellcat

Previous versions:
vB3.5.x "User Countdown Timer".
vB3.6.x "User Countdown Timer".


I have taken the original modification and simply edited templates to get it working with vB3.7.x

Note: I did not write the original modification so support of this release may be limited.

This little AddOn gives your users the option to show a custom countdown timer at the bottom of their signature.

Features:
  • Fully configurable via UserCP (see screenshot)
  • BB-Code can be used for eventname and overmessage
  • fully phrased/templated, nothing hardcoded and so fully customizable
  • leading days or hours with a value of "0" are not shown
    (so it shows "42minutes" rather then "0days 0hours 42minutes")
Installation:
Painless:
  • Upload "plugins_usercountd.php" to ".../forum/includes"
  • Upload "bitfield_hc_countdown.xml" to ".../forum/includes/xml"
  • Import the product .XML
You may also need to rebuild your languages after the install.
This can be done by going to:
AdminCP - Laguages & Phrases -> Language Manager -> Rebuild all languages

DONE
That's it.
No template edits, no nothing


Usergroup permission:
Go to -> AdminCP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> User Countdown Permissions


Members Usage:
Go into your UserCP -> Edit Options
On the very bottom you will find the options for the Countdown Timer.
Set it to whatever you like, if "Enable" is set to "ON" the timer will automatically be shown on the bottom of your sig, set to "OFF" will hide/disable the time display.

Please MARK AS INSTALLED & NOMINATE FOR MOTM

Enjoy.

In admincp, did you goto uergroups, click example: admin and rebuild bitfields.

Perhaps in admincp, logout, and back in.

Thanks TimberFloorAU, turns out the files to upload to forum/includes didn't actually upload when they were supposed to, as I had other files from last night still queued in my FTP program That'll do it!

All good now, working well Many thanks

I just had an idea for a request actually, maybe the option for the member to upload a small personal pic to add next to the countdown?

Styling would also be great, as Olly has suggested earlier

hey, I have installed as you said but the Countdown table is empty at the UserCP:



Is there any way to fix this? I'm using 3.7.1 patch level 1.

You will need to enable the mod in Usergroups.

Usergroup permission:
Go to -> AdminCP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> User Countdown Permissions

Howell, thanks for the quick answer. While I was able to see the countdown menu in the UserCP, there's still a weird error...



Can't seem to see any text in the menu.

Styling:

Font/Color/Icon

Perhaps a choice of icons, in a radio button list.

Such as a :
Birthday Cake
Xmas Tree
New baby
Aeroplane


Etc etc.

Be more personal then.

Our users love the countdown.

Can it be configured as a count up?

ie: countup to an event.

28 days 17 mins 32 seconds till we go on holiday

etc etc
