Template:CountDown

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This template calculates a difference in days between a given date (past 01.01.1970) and the current date. You can set an offset relative to GMT which has the value -8 by default, in order to represent SLT.
Use it with {{CountDown|DD|MM|YYYY|text pre date|text at date|text post date}}. Text can include {{#var:a}} to place the count. If no text is provided, only the count will be displayed.

Use
day{{#ifeq:{{#var:a}}|1||s}}
to distinguish between "day" and "days", depending on the count.


Example:
