New Year Count Down Widget For Blogs

new year count-down widget2012 is near and I am sure everyone of you is awaiting this moment eagerly. I have modified the countdown widget for Christmas a little to set it for new year. This widget can easily be added to both blogspot or wordpress. Simply copy the code and paste it in your templates. The moment new year starts, the widget will prompt an alert message saying: "Happy New year Everybody!" sharp at 12.00 a.m. The clock disappears the moment new year arrives and prompts the alert message. The clock has military standard format with hours, minutes and ticking seconds. This widget is created using a simple script with no flash. For flash clocks kindly check the Flash clocks collection. Lets add it to blogger.

Live Demo

The widget colors and styles can be completely changed using our Editor before adding it in blogger.

Tip: Paste the entire code given in step#4 inside the HTML editor.

Test and redesign it yourself!


Add count Down Widget To Blogger

  1. Go To Blogger > Design
  2. Click " Add a gadget"
  3. Choose HTML/Javascript widget
  4. Paste the following code inside it,

<style style="text/css">

.lcdstyle{ /*Example CSS to create LCD countdown look*/
font: bold 20px arial;
padding: 15px;

border:5px solid #333333;

box-shadow: 5px 5px 5px #CCCCCC;


.lcdstyle sup{ /*Example CSS to create LCD countdown look*/
font-size: 120%


<script type="text/javascript">

function cdtime(container, targetdate){
if (!document.getElementById || !document.getElementById(container)) return
this.currentTime=new Date()
this.targetdate=new Date(targetdate)

var thisobj=this
setTimeout(function(){thisobj.updateTime()}, 1000) //update time every second

cdtime.prototype.displaycountdown=function(baseunit, functionref){

var thisobj=this

var timediff=(this.targetdate-this.currentTime)/1000 //difference btw target date and current date, in seconds
if (timediff<0){ //if time is up
var oneMinute=60 //minute unit in seconds
var oneHour=60*60 //hour unit in seconds
var oneDay=60*60*24 //day unit in seconds
var dayfield=Math.floor(timediff/oneDay)
var hourfield=Math.floor((timediff-dayfield*oneDay)/oneHour)
var minutefield=Math.floor((timediff-dayfield*oneDay-hourfield*oneHour)/oneMinute)
var secondfield=Math.floor((timediff-dayfield*oneDay-hourfield*oneHour-minutefield*oneMinute))
if (this.baseunit=="hours"){ //if base unit is hours, set "hourfield" to be topmost level
else if (this.baseunit=="minutes"){ //if base unit is minutes, set "minutefield" to be topmost level
else if (this.baseunit=="seconds"){ //if base unit is seconds, set "secondfield" to be topmost level
var secondfield=timediff
this.container.innerHTML=this.formatresults(dayfield, hourfield, minutefield, secondfield)
setTimeout(function(){thisobj.showresults()}, 1000) //update results every second

/////CUSTOM FORMAT OUTPUT FUNCTIONS BELOW//////////////////////////////

//Create your own custom format function to pass into cdtime.displaycountdown()
//Use arguments[0] to access "Days" left
//Use arguments[1] to access "Hours" left
//Use arguments[2] to access "Minutes" left
//Use arguments[3] to access "Seconds" left

//The values of these arguments may change depending on the "baseunit" parameter of cdtime.displaycountdown()
//For example, if "baseunit" is set to "hours", arguments[0] becomes meaningless and contains "n/a"
//For example, if "baseunit" is set to "minutes", arguments[0] and arguments[1] become meaningless etc

function formatresults(){
if (this.timesup==false){//if target date/time not yet met
var displaystring=arguments[0]+" days "+arguments[1]+" hours "+arguments[2]+" minutes "+arguments[3]+" seconds left until December 25, 2011 18:25:00"
else{ //else if target date/time met
var displaystring=""
return displaystring

function formatresults2(){
if (this.timesup==false){ //if target date/time not yet met
var displaystring="<span class='lcdstyle'>"+arguments[0]+" <sup>days</sup> "+arguments[1]+" <sup>hours</sup> "+arguments[2]+" <sup>minutes</sup> "+arguments[3]+" <sup>seconds</sup></span> "
else{ //else if target date/time met
var displaystring="" //Don't display any text
alert("HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!") //Instead, perform a custom alert
return displaystring

<img style="float:left; " src="" width="125px"/>
<h1 style="color:#289728; padding-top:40px;">Counting Till 2012 »»</h1><br/>

<div id="countdowncontainer"></div>
<br />
<div id="countdowncontainer2"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">

var futuredate=new cdtime("countdowncontainer", "March 23, 2009 18:25:00")
futuredate.displaycountdown("days", formatresults)

var currentyear=new Date().getFullYear()
//dynamically get this Christmas' year value. If Christmas already passed, then year=current year+1
var thischristmasyear=(new Date().getMonth()>=11 && new Date().getDate()>31)? currentyear+1 : currentyear
var christmas=new cdtime("countdowncontainer2", "December 31, "+thischristmasyear+" 0:0:00")
christmas.displaycountdown("days", formatresults2)
