I am in the midst of converting a site to Pagelines from a hand-coded theme. ( the current site can be found at darkwoodbrew.org) and have run into something that I'm not sure how to do.
I'm not sure how to include this on the Home page within Pagelines. I am coming from Headway and they have a generic code block that I could have inserted this in with no problem. I tried to insert the code in a Content box but its not running any PHP code - it all shows up in the source when I view it.
I would appreciate any help with this as its a "must-have" feature for this site.
I'm running Framework 2.3. I tried to attach a text file with the code from the current site but it wouldn't take - I can forward it to anyone if that helps.

Well there are a number of ways to do this:
1. Possibly the easiest method would be to use a plugin like this -
Then add the shortcode generated by plugin, when you view your site the timer will be where you placed the ContentBox section.
There a quite a few Countdown timers on the Wordpress Plugin Repo.
2. Would be to use a hook to insert your code in the correct postion.
3. Would be to create your own section for the countdown timer and then use drag and drop to position it.

I started watching the videos on creating a section and that looks like a possibility so I think I'm going to try that route by using a jquery-based countdown plugin since its similar to what's in the example. Please leave this open as I'm sure I will have some questions. Thanks again..
