The Before You Are Dead (BYAD) Countdown provides a simple widget witch displays a countdown timer with Days, Hours, Minutes, Seconds and optionally, Years. You can configure some settings: Final date, Final time in the day, Final date format, Your final words and Years display.
- You can display the BYAD Countdown via:

BYAD Countdown implements some filters to use with add_filter() function:
- byad_date_data > array( byadRegional, byadIcon) for jquery datepicker in admin. Useful for localization. Default in french. (see – byad-settings.php – around line 131). Check code example in help-code.txt file.

- byad_timezone > to set timezone for date php functions. Default: ‘Europe/Paris’. (see – byad-countdown_widget.php – around line 42)
- byad_jsdata > to configure data passed to the main – byad-countdown.js – file displaying and activating your “last time of life”. (see – byad-countdown_widget.php – around line 53)
You can also:

BYAD Countdown distributes with translations for the following languages:
Don’t see your language on the list?
There is a – byad-countdown-default.po – in the languages/ directory.
Use it with Poedit as a base .PO file for your language.
Save it as: byad-countdown-LANGCODE.po where LANGCODE is your language code (e.g. fr_FR).
If you create any, I’ll be glad to include it in the plugin.
