    You can now embed countdown timers into your Campaigns and Events.

    Go here: http://www.timeanddate.com/clocks/freecountdown.html

    1. Set up your date and time(ignore colors and everything else) and click on:

    2. "Show HTML for Countdown Timer"

    3. Find the code that looks like this:

    Code:
    http://free.timeanddate.com/countdown/i3k9l85v/n179/cf12/cm0/cu4/ct0/cs0/ca0/cr0/ss0/cacf00/cpc000/pct/tcfff/fs120/szw320/szh135/tatTime%20Until%20Campaign%20Progresses/tacfff/tptTime%20since%20Event%20started%20in/tpc009/mat%20/mac000/mpt%20/mpc000/iso2013-03-28T14:00:00
    4. Copy the VERY last part of the code that starts with iso:
    Code:
    iso2013-03-28T14:00:00

    5. You must then manually enter this BBCODE depending on your event:

    Campaigns:
    Code:
    [media=countdowntimer_campaign]ENTER INFO HERE[/media]
    Events:
    Code:
    [media=countdowntimer_events]ENTER INFO HERE[/media]
    No Title
    Code:
    [media=countdowntimer_notitle]ENTER INFO HERE[/media]
    6. You will want to enter the LAST section of the URL inbetween the media block as so:

    Code:
    [media=countdowntimer_events]iso2013-03-28T14:00:00[/media]
    The result will be the following:

    Love this. Will be getting much use out of it. Especially as a mod when I see people "forget" to put it in their posts.

    Leave that yearly countdown in this topic and let's see what happens when it goes off.
