A short video on how to set up the coundown clock

Step 1: Select a date for the event

Choose the year, month and day of the event. If the clock should count down to the same date every year then select "every" for the year. After the date has passed the clock will count down to the same date in the following year.

If the event occures at a specific time set the time in hours and minutes. The default is 12 o'clock at night.

Some events occure worldwide at different moments. Just think of all the New Year celebrations that occure at different moments as each time zone reaches 12 o'clock. This is the default setting, "Event occurs according to whatever timezone viewer is in".

Other events occure at exactly the same moment throughout the world, but at different local times. For example, 9:00 am in Sydney is 8:00 am in Tokyo. In order for all the clocks being viewed by different people thoughout the world to count down to 00:00:00 at the same time choose "Event occurs in a specific time zone", and then set the specific timezone in the drop down menu.

Step 2: Fill in a phrase to show on the clock

Enter the title that should be shown on the page. Optionally, add a short description for the count down timer.

Select the language to use for the units of time.

Step 3: Clock type

Choose what style to use for the countdown timer. One version shows the days, hours, minutes and seconds remaining. The other version leaves the seconds out and just shows the days, hours and minutes.

Step 4: Background colour

Choose the backgroud colour of the clock. A few options are black, white, red and yellow.
