Countdown Timer on Lock Screen OR Cover Page


jasminesarian

Question

Site URL: https://www.laboratoryartscollective.com/about

Is it possible to add a countdown timer to a website's lock screen or cover page? My client would like a dramatic countdown-to-launch landing page set as the home page for 7 days before website launch / a virtual launch party. I have code for a basic free countdown ticker, I just have no clue where/how to implement it, if it's at all even possible. Thanks in advance for any help!

Add this to your site, under Settings - Advanced - Code Injection, then scroll down to the Lock Screen section, add this code. The sections in red will need changing to suit whatever you're counting down to and you can play around with fonts, colours, etc.

 

<div class="container">
  <h1 id="headline">Countdown to my whatever:</h1>
  <div id="countdown">
    <ul>
      <li><span id="days"></span>days</li>
      <li><span id="hours"></span>Hours</li>
      <li><span id="minutes"></span>Minutes</li>
      <li><span id="seconds"></span>Seconds</li>
    </ul>
  </div>
  <div class="message">
    <div id="content">
      <span class="emoji">🥳</span>
      <span class="emoji">🎉</span>
      <span class="emoji">🎂</span>
    </div>

@CubeSquared & @tuanphan

Thank you for providing the above info. I'm using this code and it works "great"!
I've dangerously customized (read: bastardized 🥴) the code to auto display an image at the end of the countdown vs emojis. But i'm having 3 main issues that i'm hoping you can help me with...pleeeeaase? 🥺

1. Half the time the countdown numbers just don't load.  Any ideas why? (img attached)

2. I try to customize css to reduce the leading between the h2 and body, but it then effects every h2 line-height on my site. (img attached)

and

3. When I try to insert a background image, it pretty much shuts my site down. 

Any info would be super helpful and appreciated.

#1. It looks fine to me

#2. It looks like you added something to code. Can you post current code in Code Block? I think some code is missing, thus you can't control spacing between that.

#3. Add image with code or? Which code did you try?

#1 Maybe its just being buggy on my end? As long as it's working for others, I'm good!

#2. I was able to tinker around with it and the leading is working for me now, however, the image that I have set to display at the end of the countdown (which was working in the beginning) now no longer works, the entire section block disappears when the countdown is reached. Can you let me know what I'm doing wrong? Here is the code: 

<div class="container">
  <h1 id="headline">CELEBRATING 25 YEARS</h1>
  <body id="body">Join First Peoples Fund and The Kennedy Center in honoring native culture sovereignty, heritage, and vitality.<body>

  </body>
  </body>
  <div>
  <div>
  </div>
  <div id="countdown">

#3. I've decided white is a lovely background color and i have bigger issue to worry about. 🤣
