Nice simple countdown plugin. Provide a date (can be provided in human readable format) and you then have access to {years}, {months}, {days}, {hours}, {minutes} variables.

Plugin Usage :

date="7th June 2011 11:10:00 am"
event="My Birthday"}

There are {if years > 0}{years} year{if years > 1}s{/if}, {/if}{if months > 0}{months} month{if months > 1}s{/if}, {/if}{if days > 0}{days} day{if days > 1}s{/if}, {/if}{if hours > 0}{hours} hour{if hours > 1}s{/if}, {/if}{if hours <= 0}{minutes} minutes{/if}{if hours > 0}{if minutes > 0}and {minutes} minute{if minutes > 1}s{/if}{/if}{/if} left until {event}

Plugin works great IF you don’t want to display the date after it’s expired (E.g. 0 Days 0 Hours Left etc)

It seems to a bit buggy after the date has past. Support seems to be limited also, this bug has been around & reported for around 5 months
