    Info Re: countdown on a site

    Here's a very simple script that can be modded through CSS changes quite easily: Simple Countdown Timer.web

    The Placeholder box has three components:


    1. Name of timer
    2. Code calls in Placeholder body.
    3. CSS styling in Placeholder head.

    I don't think a countdown accurate to the second but on display at 95 days is going to build much excitement. If you really have to have it why not just show ' X days to go' until you are much closer to the time?

    You have some typos Mike:

    'Entry form' button.
    'Competitors info' should really be 'Competitor info'.

    I find the pages pretty hard to read, but that's pretty common for this genre of website!

    [ I'd also add that watching a countdown ticking off seconds is pretty boring (it's only interesting in the last couple of minutes). If you ditch the seconds, people have to wait in anticipation of the minute changing. Before you tell me that it works for '24' that's only because they only have a few moments to build the countdown tension. ]

    I think you were given the solution to that problem in another thread, weren't you?

    What I am posting a link for is not the countdown. I wonder if you couldn't do something like this while the countdown runs below. You wouldn't want clocks, other graphics. Just a thought. Just watch the clock. https://www.jerrys-furniture.com/howard_miller.htm Not relevant? - please ignore.
