Hi there,

I am trying to use jquery Countdown 

It works perfectly, but I didn´t understand how to include the expiryUrl  property inside it. I tried as below, but it doesn´t work.

Could you please modify the code below to make it right?  Thanks!

$(function () {

	$('#defaultCountdown').countdown({format: 'MS', compact: false, expiryurl: true, until: $.countdown.UTCDate(-3, 2010, 8, 25, <%=(rsParsingStartTimes.Fields.Item("HourStart").Value)-24%>, <%=(rsParsingStartTimes.Fields.Item("MinuteStart").Value)%>+1, 0, 0),
	expiryurl: ""

I see you set it twice :

expiryurl: true,
expiryurl: ""

replace the << true >> by the ""

be careful with the case, expiryurl and expiryUrl

$('#defaultCountdown').countdown({format: 'MS', compact: false, expiryUrl: "", until: $.countdown.UTCDate(-3, 2010, 8, 25, <%=(rsParsingStartTimes.Fields.Item("HourStart").Value)-24%>, <%=(rsParsingStartTimes.Fields.Item("MinuteStart").Value)%>+1, 0, 0)
