Showing the remaining time for a contest or giveaway
In this article, we will show you how to add a countdown timer to your WBB 3.1.6 forum using a plugin called Chrono Splitter Temp. This plugin allows you to insert countdown timers in your signature, posts, overview, and other places using BBCode tags.

Click on Install Package and follow the instructions on the screen.

Step 2: Insert Countdown Timers Using BBCode Tags
The second step is to insert countdown timers using BBCode tags wherever you want them to appear. The BBCode tag for Chrono Splitter Temp is [chrono]. You can use it with various parameters to customize your timer, such as:
Date: The date and time of the event that you are counting down to. The format is YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.
Format: The format of the timer display. You can use %d for days, %h for hours, %m for minutes, %s for seconds, and %t for tenths of seconds.
Text: The text that will appear before or after the timer. You can use %c for the timer value.
Color: The color of the text and the timer. You can use hexadecimal values or color names.
For example, if you want to insert a countdown timer in your signature that shows how many days are left until Christmas 2023, you can use this BBCode tag:
[chrono date=\"2023-12-25 00:00:00\" format=\"%d\" text=\"Only %c days until Christmas!\" color=\"red\"][/chrono]
This will result in something like this:
Only 282 days until Christmas!
You can also insert countdown timers in your posts, overview, and other places using the same BBCode tag. Just make sure that you have enabled Chrono Splitter Temp in the relevant settings.
