Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Countdown

  1. #1



    I am using PHP to make a countdown. Basically, I just want to get the amount of days, but I guess minutes and seconds would be nice too.

    I was experimenting with date() however whenever I tried to find the last day of the month, then any other day I used date('t') it would also bring the last day of the month. I was thinking I could take the last day of the month and subtract the current day. So, today is the 28th and the last day of the month is 31. So, I could have it subject 28 from 31.

    Like I said, hours and seconds would be great too, but I am confused on what to do. I used a few functions like mktime() and strftime() but not sure what to do.

    Any help is appreciated.

    What I'd recommend doing is just subtracting the time()s, and dividing appropriately.

    Actually.. I'd recommend just doing this in Javascript all together.
    got pwnt?
