Drupal 7 jQuery Countdown – Daily Dose of Drupal episode 173

This module, which uses jQuery, allows you to specify an end date which the countdown timer will countdown to. The countdown timer is available as a block and can be placed in any region that you desire for your website. Also, at this recording their was a minor bug that didn’t allow for countdown dates to extend beyond 100 days (wouldn’t display the third digit). This video covers the patch fix and also I have provided the patched file that you can use.
