A collection of two PHP functions that will generate a countdown to any date and display it in either predefined formats or your on format.
An easy to use Countdown Calendar. Just provide a date to countdown to, it displays the time left in days, hours and minutes.
Usage: include countdown.php;
Create customized countdowns for any occasion with Tizag PHP Countdown Creator. Customize the text size, position, color, dropshadow, and more! This application currently supports jpg, jpeg, gif, and png images.
The form is already set, simply enter your specific time and go! Find the exact days, hours and minutes to a specific event. Very accurate.
The Pregnancy Script is meant to allow pregnant women to provide automatic weekly pregnancy updates right on their websites. The script announces a pregnancy, tells the name and gender (if specified) of the baby, counts the weeks of the pregnancy and the days until the due date, and provides weekly information on fetal development.
If you love simple, or just like to have some more Flash on your site, then this is the option. Sure, its not the best, and its not the most original, but who cares. Its 100% customized anyway. Documentation inside the file.
Online with PHP the script is server-based, offline or with PHP disabled the script is client-based.
It also contains a fully editable FLA file for creating your own Flash counter.
Also included is an event file to count down to the release of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, which only works until September 13th 2005.
This script requires a webserver that has GD already enabled and you can have your own PHP GD countdown! Visit BizzarScripts.net for an example of what it can do. You can change the variables to select a date, as well as change the background image to suit your needs. I wrote this for my HL2 site, www.hl2empire.com and it works really well. I included instructions for converting it to a PNG file and using that in a forum that doesnt allow PHP.
Very easy to configure and include into any .php page, setup and ready in 2 minutes. You can choose to output your countdown in days, hours, minutes or seconds.
Eventive is similar to a shoutbox, only, instead of entering a message users enter an event and the script then displays how long is remaining until that event on the page the script is on (designed to be viewed in a iframe),
It is easily customiseable via CSS and displays different messages depenging on whether the event is today, tomorrow, yesterday or sometime in the future.
It allows you to set a certain date and when that date is reached it pops up a message. Planet K used it for a new year countdown and on the 31st of December at 12 oclock GMT is poped up and said "HAPPY NEW YEAR!".
