Embedded Date Countdown

A countdown to a given date can be embedded into an article using a simple tag.

By entering the text [DayCountdown:date,pre-text,post-text] (where date is the date to count down to, pre-text appears before the countdown, and post text after it) anywhere in a text item on a page, the date countdown will be embedded on the page.

The date can be in more or less any sane human readable format, but note that 9/11/2009 is the 11th September rather than the 9th of November.

Using this as an example: [DayCountdown:December 25th 2009,It's only,to christmas!]

On the 15th December 2009 it will output: It's only 10 days to christmas!

On December 24th 2009 it will output:
It's only 1 day to christmas!

On December 25th 2009 and forever afterwards it will output nothing.

Here we have used [DayCountdown:December 25th 2015,It's only,to christmas 2015!] to embed a countdown to christmas 2015.

To change the colour or appearance of the countdown timer, just use the text editor to style the DayCountdown tag. Here we've set it to a h3 style and coloured the text red:
