Though there is the help document included with the html template, I would like to highlight two changes, as I got those issues while installing the theme on my server.
To set the countdown timer, the procedure explained in the help document looked very complex for me, I was actually not getting how should I modify the timer to suit my requirement. I just customized the one line code, and I got it working easily.
Have a look at the below screenshot of index.html code:
I just replaced the indicated code (refer above screenshot) in the index.html file with the below code
var austDay = new Date("January 15, 2011 12:00:00")
Now change the date in the code with your website’s launch date. Alas, it seems easy to me 😉
On line 58 of the emailform.php file, I got a PHP error as the PHP opening tag was written as <? rather than <?php, as my server does not support this kind of opening tag format for PHP. I had to replace the tag and I got it working 🙂
