Event countdown module CDUB for Joomla!

Module: CountDown-Up Big
Function: Clear and stylish counter for any number of event entries (with countup)

Features

  • Countdown and Countup - after the set time has expired, a countup (elapsed time) can be displayed
  • Counter can be displayed statically or dynamically
  • Link to the event and after the countdown is over
  • Any number of events can be entered
  • Display a description text (also in HTML)

Installation

Install the module via backend and configure it under Extensions - Modules - CDUB Countdown Big.

Bonus

Tips and Tricks

Set as many events as you like!

It is possible to set further events via a text field. You have to follow a certain syntax to make it work correctly.

Syntax in the Pro and Free version (>= 3.2.0-FREE):

Yeas-Month-Day Hour:Minute|Title|Description

Example for 2 further events:

2021-09-04 12:00|Birthday|Party!
2021-12-31 23:59

Syntax in the Free version (<= 3.1.2):

Year@Month@Day@Hour@Minute@Title@Description

The elements are entered separated by an @ sign. Enter one event per line. At least the first 5 elements must be entered to calculate the countdown. The order (year - month - day - hour - minute - title - description) must be kept, otherwise it leads to wrong results.

Example for 2 further events:

2012@01@10@10@00@Geburtstag@Party!
2012@02@20@12@30
