Project Description

We recently purchased the BigPrism Dynamic Timer script, and are having trouble getting it to work. We need someone to configure the forms, we can install it on our website using the included embed code. We just need someone to change the files so they do what we want them to do and send them back. It is a very small job, we just don't know cgi AT ALL! Escrow will be released upon confirmation that files are functional on our website.

We want the timer to say that there is a limited time discount where they can purchase at $[url removed, login to view] and count down an hour and 39 minutes in the form of 01:39:58. Upon completion of countdown, we need it to say that the time is up but if they purchase now they can still get it for $[url removed, login to view]

These are the instructions that come with the timer, so if you understand this and can get the job done quickly, please bid!

We have the following files:

* [url removed, login to view] -------- main script
* [url removed, login to view] --- configuration script
* [url removed, login to view] ---- timer template
* [url removed, login to view] -- template to display after time is gone
* [url removed, login to view] ---------------- ip log file
* [url removed, login to view] ------------ the file you are reading now

_______________________________________________________________________________
1. Define Variables
== Using a plain text editor like textpad, or notepad, open the [url removed, login to view]
script and set desired timeout and resetting delay. Save your changes.

NOTE: If your hosting provider uses perl header other than standard #!/usr/bin/perl
then you need to change it in the very first line of [url removed, login to view] and
[url removed, login to view] files.

_______________________________________________________________________________
2. Edit "tmpl-dtimeisok.bpc" And "tmpl-dtimeisover.bpc" Files
== These are the files with HTML templates that will be displayed when timer it
counting down ([url removed, login to view]) and after the time is over ([url removed, login to view]).


There are four merge words that can be used in the html template [url removed, login to view]
for displaying how much time left:
%DAYS% will print 1-3 digits of days left (depending on amount of days)
%HOURS% will print 2 digits of hours left
%MINS% will print 2 digits of minutes left
%SECS% will print 2 digits of seconds left

In other words, if you want to display time like this: 0 days and 00:00:00 left
you should write this in your code like: %DAYS% days and %HOURS%:%MINS%:%SECS% left

There is no need to use any merge words in the [url removed, login to view] file as there is
no time to count down. It is just standard static HTML.

_______________________________________________________________________________
3. Upload Files
== Upload the following files to the /cgi-bin/ directory of your hosting account.
I suggest you to create a new subdirectory in your /cgi-bin/, like
[url removed, login to view] and then upload following files to it:

[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]

WARNING! ALL files must be uploaded in ASCII mode. If you upload as binary,
script WILL NOT work.

_______________________________________________________________________________
4. Set File Permissions (CHMOD)
== Set the permissions for the [url removed, login to view] file to '755'
Set the permissions for the [url removed, login to view] file to '755'
Set the permissions for the [url removed, login to view] file to '644'
Set the permissions for the [url removed, login to view] file to '644'
Set the permissions for the [url removed, login to view] file to '644'

(In rare cases the last file should be CHMOD 666.)

_______________________________________________________________________________
5. Add Script Code To Your Site
== Now you can add the script tag to your site where you want timer to be displayed.

<script src="[url removed, login to view]; type="text/javascript"></script>

Please note, that "uniqueword" at the end of the script address should be any
sequence of latin letters or digits like "jkhghg" or "jk6fj". It should be unique
in every script tag. This will prevent from reading values from browser cache.
