    Hi, can anyone help me, i am after a Countdown timer widget, ive tried adding a text widget and using a javascript code, but it just shows the code..

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is vennixproductions.wordpress.com.

  2. Javascript isn't support I'm afraid. ( http://support.wordpress.com/code/ )
    I don't think you can get a countdown timer since they mostly use iframe, frame or javascript.

    My request (for a countdown widget) is on the wordpress list of 'things to be considered' -- so we iz hopeful! There is no doubt in my mind that lots of people would use it.

  5. This is what I use as a countdown script.

    Download this flash file:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?gnzkdlzzmuh

    Upload to your server.

    Then put this html code in a text widget:

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.your-url.com/countdown.swf?mo=12&da=31&ho=10&co=000000" width="250" height="100">
    <param name="movie" value="http://www.your-url.com/countdown.swf?mo=12&da=31&ho=10&co=000000" />
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
    </object>

    Change out mo= with the number of the month; da= with the number of the day; ho= with the hour; and co= with the 6 digit color code you want the countdown text to be.

    You must put the data in the <object> and <param>.

    Good luck!

  6. Flash can't be used on wordpress.com blogs so that won't work here.
