Custom developments for the Jadu® cms

Countdown widget

This page only applies to users of the Jadu® content management system.

Widget features

  • displays the number of days until an event, for example: "Only 20 days to Christmas!"
  • configure the date and name of the event in the widget settings, no coding
  • you can use the widget in several different places because each instance has its own settings
  • If you forget to reset the widget after the event, it fails gracefully with, for example: "Its 20 days since Christmas!"

What does it look like?

Today's date widget

This is an example. The actual appearance is determined from your site's style sheet.


Widgets are customised to suit the customer's requirements, Jadu® cms version, setup and styling. Installation is by TopCode's developer and this requires temporary access for TopCode to parts of your cms. Widgets are installed through the cms and do not alter the Jadu® cms source code.

After installation, your webmaster uses the cms to put widget instances anywhere where they are required. Each instance can be configured using widget settings.


Requirements vary between customers and systems, so charges are by quotation. Charges include installation and maintenance for 1 year. TopCode is not registered for VAT.

Your licence to use any TopCode code lasts indefinitely. You may modify the code for your own use, but you may not pass it on to third parties.

Alternatively TopCode can provide services at an hourly rate, if required through your preferred agency staff supplier.
