Today I’m delighted to announce the release of WP Flipclock version 1.4! This version mainly adds on a bunch of new features to the plugin, so if you wish to take advantage of these features, please upgrade.
We’ve introduced a timezone attribute. This will allow you to set the timezone for when the countdown runs out. So say you have something that ends at a certain time, but it needs to synchronise with a time zone, then add this attribute to make sure the user’s timezone matches yours.
The Lang attribute allows you to select one of 14 different languages to be used on the headers for the flipclock. This allows proper localisation, so they don’t need to be translated, as the languages are applied in the flipclock.js (which has been updated to 0.5.5).
Finally, the final attribute to be included in the plugin is the “seconds” attribute. This attribute hides the “seconds” field, so is useful for long countdowns where it’s not essential to have this. It also best works when “days” is the final attribute.
An example that incorporates all three updates below, is say if you want a Russian language countdown, to Christmas Day 2020 in Moscow, without the second hands showing:-
You can see how this is done (as well as other updates) using the brand new WP Flipclock Documentation.
A lot of improvements were due to Den Kalinin, who’s work added all the upgrades mentioned above (bar the upgrade to the flipclock.js). Thanks Den!
