I'm liking the Wrestlemania countdown at the top of the screen. Is that done in PHP or Javascript? How easy would it be to create one for a website, but with a different date?

"View Source"

(php)

This is the third time we've done it (because it's the third WrestleMania since we opened this board, probably).

Use this code, but with a different date:

$secs=1112572800-ctime();
$wtag="WrestleMania 21 begins in ".number_format($secs)." seconds";

So...pretty easy (assuming you have php)?

Two things: I'm not sure if my site HAS php - I'm assuming not, since it's on a free server.

Also, I didn't want to steal the code (by using the VIEW SOURCE function) without your permission. That's just wrong.

Thanks!

The neat thing about php is that you couldn't have done that even if you tried. The math is all done on the server before your browser even begins to render the page, so all you would see if you did view source would see would be the end result of the math, not the formula itself.

I believe you can easily do something like that in Javascript though. I haven't actually tried it out, but perhaps http://javascriptkit.com/javatutors/datedifference.shtml would help you out.

Is the logo change every day done automatically, or manually? Not that I've any interest in using a countdown myself, I'm simply curious.

It's been automatic, every day at midnight (CST) since January.
