    Create a floating menu


    Hello,

    Note: This tutorial was provided from drobga921 from his forum Codinghelp


    Enjoy! Wink Today I am going to be showing you how to make your own floating countdown clock on your forum for any occasion. Below is a step by step guide. This will work in PunBB and PHPBB2

    Step One:

    In your CSS add the following:


    Code: Select Content
    #customcountdown {
        float: right;
        margin-right: 150px;
        height: 40px;
        width: 300px;
        font-family: "georgia", times new roman, times, serif;
        color: #fff;
        font-size: 11px;
        text-align: center;
        margin-top: -50px;
        background: url(https://i.servimg.com/u/f43/16/73/82/07/server10.png) no-repeat;
        padding-top: 5px;
     letter-spacing:1px}


    Step Two:

    Go to: Modules -> Javascript Codes Management -> Create New

    Add the following:

    Code: Select Content
    // Andrew Urquhart : CountDown Timer : http://andrewu.co.uk/clj/countdown/
    function CD_T(id,e){var n=new Date();CD_D(+n,id,e);setTimeout("if(typeof CD_T=='function'){CD_T('"+id+"',"+e+")}",1100-n.getMilliseconds())};function CD_D(n,id,e){var ms=e-n;if(ms<=0) ms*=-1;var d=Math.floor(ms/864E5);ms-=d*864E5;var h=Math.floor(ms/36E5);ms-=h*36E5;var m=Math.floor(ms/6E4);ms-=m*6E4;var s=Math.floor(ms/1E3);if(CD_OBJS[id]){CD_OBJS[id].innerHTML=d+" day"+(d==1?" ":"s ")+CD_ZP(h)+"h "+CD_ZP(m)+"m "+CD_ZP(s)+"s"}};function CD_ZP(i){return(i<10?"0"+i:i)};function CD_Init(){var pref="countdown";var objH=1;if(document.getElementById||document.all){for(var i=1;objH;++i){var id=pref+i;objH=document.getElementById?document.getElementById(id):document.all[id];if(objH&&(typeof objH.innerHTML)!='undefined'){var s=objH.innerHTML;var dt=CD_Parse(s);if(!isNaN(dt)){CD_OBJS[id]=objH;CD_T(id,dt.valueOf());if(objH.style){objH.style.visibility="visible"}}else {objH.innerHTML=s+"<a href=\"http://andrewu.co.uk/clj/countdown/\" title=\"Countdown Error:Invalid date format used,check documentation (see link)\">*</a>"}}}}};function CD_Parse(strDate){var objReDte=/(\d{4})\-(\d{1,2})\-(\d{1,2})\s+(\d{1,2}):(\d{1,2}):(\d{0,2})\s+GMT([+\-])(\d{1,2}):?(\d{1,2})?/;if(strDate.match(objReDte)){var d=new Date(0);d.setUTCFullYear(+RegExp.$1,+RegExp.$2-1,+RegExp.$3);d.setUTCHours(+RegExp.$4,+RegExp.$5,+RegExp.$6);var tzs=(RegExp.$7=="-"?-1:1);var tzh=+RegExp.$8;var tzm=+RegExp.$9;if(tzh){d.setUTCHours(d.getUTCHours()-tzh*tzs)}if(tzm){d.setUTCMinutes(d.getUTCMinutes()-tzm*tzs)};return d}else {return NaN}};var CD_OBJS=new Object();if(window.attachEvent){window.attachEvent('onload',CD_Init)}else if(window.addEventListener){window.addEventListener("load",CD_Init,false)}else {window.onload=CD_Init};


    Save it, and copy the link.

    Step Three:

    PunBB Version:
    Go to OVERALL_HEADER and find:

    Code: Select Content
      <a id="top" name="top" accesskey="t"></a>


    Right below it, add:

    Code: Select Content
    <div id="customcountdown"><script type="text/javascript" src="LINK FROM THE JAVASCRIPT" defer="defer"></script><strong>Your Text Here: </strong><br><span id="countdown1">YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS GMT+00:00</span></div>


    REPLACE LINK FROM THE JAVASCRIPT WITH THE LINK YOU COPIED EARLIER. Change the date to countdown to:

    YYYY = Year
    MM = Month
    DD = Day
    HH = Hour
    MM = Minute
    SS = Second


    save and publish your template. Your countdown will be on every page at the TOP RIGHT.

    PHPBB2 version:

    Find:

    Code: Select Content
    <a name="top"></a>



    Right below it, add:

    Code: Select Content
    <div id="customcountdown"><script type="text/javascript" src="LINK FROM THE JAVASCRIPT" defer="defer"></script><strong>Your Text Here: </strong><br><span id="countdown1">YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS GMT+00:00</span></div>


    REPLACE LINK FROM THE JAVASCRIPT WITH THE LINK YOU COPIED EARLIER. Change the date to countdown to:

    YYYY = Year
    MM = Month
    DD = Day
    HH = Hour
    MM = Minute
    SS = Second


    save and publish your template. Your countdown will be on every page at the TOP RIGHT.

    Create a floating menu Countd10
