WP Flipclock is a plugin that allows you to quickly and easily add a flipclock to your site’s posts and pages via a shortcode.
The plugin allows you to count down or up from a specific date, as well as choose whether you count down days, hours or minutes.
This counts up how long I have been alive.
- Upload the plugin (unzipped) into `/wp-content/plugins/`.
- Activate the plugin under the “Plugins” menu.
To use the plugin in your site, all you need to add to the page is the [flipclock countdown="true/false" name="" date="" face="days/hours/minutes"] shortcode. There are various attributes you can add as well:-
- name - Give the flipclock a name. Default is “flipclock”. If you have more than one flipclock on any page it’s useful to give them unique names.
- countdown (True/False) - Allows you to count down to a date (true), or count up from a date (false). Default is false.
- date – Any date string, formatted how you like, which the clock will count up from/down to. Default is none.
- face (days/hours/minutes) - The face of the clock. Default is hours. Options are:-
- days – Days : Hours : Minutes : Seconds
- hours - Hours : Minutes : Seconds
- minutes – Minutes : Seconds
Here’s a couple of examples for you.
- To count down the amount of days until New Years Day 2050: [flipclock countdown="true" date="1st January 2050" face="days"]
- To count up the amount of hours since Christmas Day 2010: [flipclock countdown="true" date="25th December 2010"]
