Notes[edit]

Please note the following important points before using this template.

  • the time on this countdown clock is GMT (UTC+0)
  • if the event is held in more than 24 hours, only the number of days and the number of hours left will be shown
  • if the event is held within 24 hours, only the number of hours left will be shown
  • if the event is held within 1 hour, only the number of minutes left will be shown
  • if the event is held within 1 minute, only the number of seconds left will be shown

Usage[edit]

Editors can use this template as a countdown clock for a lot of different events. The following can show you how to use this template.

Note: Time is in GMT (UTC). Adjust the time according, and date if necessary. timeanddate.com is useful for this.

Simple Countdown Clock[edit]

This type of countdown clock is suitable for events with no duration.

{{countdown
 |year  = 2016
 |month = 2
 |day   = 14
 |event = unknown event
}}

If you type in the above, something like the following will appear.

unknown event has already ended. (refresh)

Notice for a finished event[edit]

Default notice: If the event is in the past, it will look like this:

unknown event has already ended. (refresh)


Customized notice: If you want to customize the notice for the finished event, use eventend - e.g.:

{{countdown
 |year     = 2012
 |month    = 2
 |day      = 14
 |event    = unknown event
 |eventend = unknown has finished! 
}}

which creates:

unknown has finished! (refresh)


Advanced Countdown Clock[edit]

This type of countdown clock is suitable for events with a duration. It will display a fixed message during the event, defined by eventstart. If you want the countdown to happen during the event (e.g. how many days left in a fundraiser) then define the deadline as the eventstart, with duration 0. (Or use the simple version above.)

Note you must use whole numbers for time values - you can't use, for example, "1:18". Use the minute and second parameters if needed.

Duration is in seconds. This may be expressed as multiples, e.g. 30*60 is 30 minutes, and 2*60*60 is 2 hours. Just put in the numbers - no units.

E.g. an event starting at the beginning of 2013, with a duration of 20 years:

{{countdown
 |year       = 2013
 |month      = 1
 |day        = 1
 |hour       = 0
 |minute     = 0
 |second     = 0
 |event      = unknown starts
 |duration   = 20*365*24*60*60
 |eventstart = unknown has started
 |eventend   = unknown has ended
}}


This event is currently in progress. If you type in the above, the following will appear:

unknown has started (refresh)
