Widgets »Milestone Widget

The Milestone Widget provides you with a simple way to create a countdown to a given date. Here’s and example of what it looks like in the Forever theme.

Once you add the widget to your sidebar from Appearance → Widgets, you’ll see that the widget settings look like this:

Title – Text to display as the “Widget Title”. This text will be styled like the titles of other widgets in your sidebar. If you prefer that no title be displayed, leave this field blank.

Event – Text entered in this field will display immediately above the date. If you prefer that no event be displayed, leave this field blank.

Date and Time – Set the date and time for this milestone. The fields are listed in the following order: month, day, year, hour, minute. Dates may not be later than December 31st, 2037. Hours are entered in 24 hour format.

Message – This message will be displayed after the countdown has ended. You may use the following html tags: <a>, <em> and <strong>. If you prefer that no message be displayed, leave this field blank.
