This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and will be deleted by December 31st, 2020. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.

Setting up the countdown

The countdown will show the time left (in words) until the next event starts. Only upcoming events with a begin date/time will be selected for this. If no matching event is found, a message will be shown instead.

To set this up, follow these easy steps:

  1. At the page/column where you want the countdown to be shown, add a new “Seminarmanager”-plug-in content element.
  2. In the settings of this new content element, select “Countdown to the next event” from the “what to display” dropdown list.
  3. You can change the visual appearance by changing the CSS or the HTML template. But please don’t change them in the extension’s directory (or all changes will be lost upon the next update of the extension)
