Pockets compatibility, bugs, and suggestions

This discussion is related to the Countdown addon.

I'd like to use this with the Pockets plugin so I can add a countdown in the panel section. Are you planning to expand functionality?

Also, here are a couple bugs I found:

  • Couldn't change the tag from default. Every tag I tried wouldn't get picked up in the thread
  • After editing a post with the timer tag in it, after saving the edit, the timer doesn't display.

and some suggestions:

  • Support creation of multiple countdowns with separate tags
  • Time Zone selection isn't very easy, needs a more common drop down

Thanks for making this

  • That would be great

    Hi, thanks for the bug report. The tag issue is that I mistakenly convert to uppercase. So tags with anything other than uppercase letters will not currently work. I'll fix this.

    I'll add a drop down for timezone selection.

    I've not done any pockets integration before but I'll look into it. Same goes for multiple countdowns.

    Ps: the source is on GitHub: https://github.com/gingerbeardman/Countdown

    @Nemiari @steve23 I've fixed the tag bug, and added a dropdown for the timezones.

    I'm looking into Pockets compatibility.

    I will look into multiple countdowns when I get a chance.

  • This is really cool, thanks for making it! The ability to make multiple countdowns would be awesome.

    if this is the fix what does it mean, i put into translator but still don't understand, is there an English version of this > No se si abran corregido esto, pero yo lo corregi reemplanzado la linea 24 por esto: $tzlist[] = DateTimeZone::listIdentifiers();

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    yes that is the fix, he said to replace line 24 of forum/plugins/Countdown/class.countdown.plugin.php

    with :

    $tzlist[] = DateTimeZone::listIdentifiers();

  • mattmatt ✭✭

    I've rolled this fix into the latest version, thanks to @YAcosta and @vrijvlinder!

    i second the "multiple countdowns" suggestion of DirtyDog... ;)

    Would be crazy, if something like

    [Countdown 00:00:00 28.11.2013]

    in each discussion would be possible... ;)

    We have a Event driven Forum... so Countdowns in every Event discussion would be great... ;)

    ThX for this plugin

    [Countdown 00:00:00 28.11.2013]

    That format doesn't work. How do you use this plugin? All when I use [countdown] is an image with zero days hours minutes and seconds.

    anonymouse here is a pro tip for mooses.

    Pro Tip:

    standard use of plugin. go to settings page. read instructions.

    go to the settings page - see the instructions.

    change as you wish.

    I changed it to [mytimer]

    I used a time setting that is offered in

  • @Anonymoose said:

    similarly you could put this in the settings page

    03:05:15 11/12/15

    for a countdown starting at 3:05:15 on November 12 2015

    So it appears you more clever than Moose. And from your explaination I now see that the Time field changes all the [counter]s in the whole forum. However, I don't want to accept this countdown as being the countdown to change all countdowns.

    It would be nice to see [Countdown 00:00:00 31.12.2020] implemented, which was the behavior I expected.

    Meanwhile, thank you for your explaination. Over the top of the antlers as usual.

    you can certainly offer to sponsor a developer to do it. several of you want it. A developer may take you up on it.
