Events Countdown for Calendarize it!
We are very pleased to announce the release of our newest add-on; Events Countdown for Calendarize it!
If you turn on the Auto Template feature in the Options > Countdown menu you can turn the countdown ON or OFF when you create the event. If you choose to turn the Auto Template feature OFF you can manually insert the shortcode or use Visual Composer for greater flexibility when it comes to building your own templates.
In the case you insert the following shortcode into your template, it will automatically fetch the event data (Start Date, Start Time, End Date and End Time). In case this shortcode is used you need to turn the Auto Template feature OFF otherwise, you will have a double countdown in the page.
If you wish to use the countdown independently from the event or anywhere on your website you can add the following attributes to the shortcode.
[[rhc_countdown date="2021-12-31 23:59:59"]]
