1) Script Title: Universal Countdown

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex6/universalcountdown_dev.htm

3) Describe problem: I am trying to set a countdown for Feb. 12, 2008 6:30:00pm EST TIME ONLY!!!!

I want Cali members to see the same time left as it will be for East. members. Is this possible? I dont understand the "'<!--#config timefmt="%B %d, %Y %H:%M:%S"--><!--#echo var="DATE_LOCAL" -->' : '<%= Now() %>'"

Can someone create this or atleast fill in what i am missing??? Thanks

<!--#config timefmt="%B %d, %Y %H:%M:%S"--><!--#echo var="DATE_LOCAL" -->' : '<%= Now() %>
Is just comments in HTML. :-P

Yes, but in ssi it's server code, oh and the last bit wouldn't be a comment in HTML, but it is in a script and shouldn't be seen anyway. It's asp. Generally, none of that part of the script needs editing. This script requires some kind of server side language - that is how it determines the time - from the server. What server side language are you using?

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.
