Countdown based on date and time fieldtype?
I'm trying to 'jazz up' a list of tenders by showing how many days left there is to submit a bid. Is there a format function that already exists in Perch that will allow me to easily specify a countdown to a date and time defined by the user using
perch:content type="date" time="true"?
Essentially, this sort of function:
<?php $date = strtotime("March 7, 2016 2:00 PM"); $remaining = $date - time(); $days_remaining = floor($remaining / 86400); $hours_remaining = floor(($remaining % 86400) / 3600); echo "$days_remaining days $hours_remaining hours left"; ?>
