After spending quite a bit of time searching both the Bitcointalk.org forum and Google, and not finding simple instructions for how to do this, I thought I'd add type this up.  I eventually figured it out by right clicking on a post that had a countdown timer and looking through the source code.  Hope this saves you some time.  

This will add a countdown timer to your post, like the one below.  This particular one is counting down to New Years Day 2014 (UTC).



It's pretty simple once you know how!


If you need help converting your local time to UTC take a look at this website:

Thanks! I've seen similar countdown timers, but I never realized that was how you made them.

I can't edit my above post for some reason, but do you know how to change the background color from green to black properly?

https://www.onnit.com/emails/_modules/timer/?end=2014-01-01+00:00:00&dark=0 produces a black and white timer (at least for me). Even when you change dark=0 to dark=1, it stays black, unless I'm doing something wrong.

It's not the value of dark that changes the background color, it's the ampersand (&) preceding it.

https://www.onnit.com/emails/_modules/timer/?end=2014-01-01+00:00:00UTC&dark=1 (Green background)

https://www.onnit.com/emails/_modules/timer/?end=2014-01-01+00:00:00UTC&&dark=1 (Dark gray background)

Thanks for the guide.

You can change it to your local time by editing the UTC to EST, CST, et. cetera
