"HUG_2018 - Next Event" Module (does not work on iPhones)

The timestamp seems to be formatted incorrectly in the javascript. So, it will not show up at all on iOS. I tried editing the javascript, but to no avail.

Any ideas?

Here is the code:

var eventEl = document.getElementById('event_timestamp'),
    dayEl = eventEl.getElementsByClassName('countdown__days')[0].getElementsByClassName('countdown__digit')[0],
    hourEl = eventEl.getElementsByClassName('countdown__hours')[0].getElementsByClassName('countdown__digit')[0],
    minuteEl = eventEl.getElementsByClassName('countdown__minutes')[0].getElementsByClassName('countdown__digit')[0],
    secondEl = eventEl.getElementsByClassName('countdown__seconds')[0].getElementsByClassName('countdown__digit')[0];

var countDownDate = new Date(eventEl.getAttribute('data-timestamp')).getTime();
// var countDownDate = countDownDate.replace(/-/g, '/');
// var countDownDate = new Date(eventEl.getAttribute("data-timestamp").replace(/-/g, "/")).getTime();

// Update the count down every 1 second
var x = setInterval(function() {

  // Get todays date and time
  var now = new Date().getTime();

  // Find the distance between now an the count down date
  var distance = countDownDate - now;

  // Time calculations for days, hours, minutes and seconds
  var days = Math.floor(distance / (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24));
  var hours = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60 * 60 * 24)) / (1000 * 60 * 60));
  var minutes = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60 * 60)) / (1000 * 60));
  var seconds = Math.floor((distance % (1000 * 60)) / 1000);

  // Display the result in the element with id="demo"
  dayEl.innerHTML = days;
  hourEl.innerHTML = hours;
  minuteEl.innerHTML = minutes;
  secondEl.innerHTML = seconds;


  // If the count down is finished, write some text 
  if (distance < 0) {
    clearInterval(x);
    eventEl.innerHTML = "EXPIRED";
  }
}, 1000);

Hey @eiserloh, The issue is a browser-specific one. Chrome allows for date formats of yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss, but Safari does not. We'd need to replace those dashes with forward-slashes. In order to do this, we can replace the dashes with some JS. So instead of:

var countDownDate = new Date(eventEl.getAttribute('data-timestamp')).getTime();

we can use:

var countDownDate = new Date(eventEl.getAttribute("data-timestamp").replace(/-/g, "/")).getTime();

This should fix the issue you're seeing on Safari, as I've tested on my device and it looks good!

Thanks, it turns out, there was a huge delay in my pages updating upon publishing changes. Pages seem to update either really quick or painfully slow. All is well now.

It'd be really helpful if modules like this worked out of the box or at least had dev comments in the code. :wink: @Connor_Barley
