    Basic Instructions to use timer with [bd] Widget Framework
    After installing this addon you can with minimal configuration turn it into a widget for [bd] Widget Framework , this is a simple set of instructions which makes the timer sidebar block render properly within the widget framework

    Ok right to it then....

    __1.________________________________________

    Navigate to:

    Home > Options > Clip The Apex's Countdown Timer

    Edit Option: Enable Sidebar Block

    Un-check this option

    (By disabling the sidebar block which can only be rendered once per page, you make it available for other systems such as WFw to render it)

    Now we will add the widget itself and call to display the timer with the widget framework rather than in the standard original way.

    Now we start filling in the info.....do for the fields as they are written below... @XFRocks was nice enough to help me along with the renderer which basically means for you guys, adding the widget is as simple as a click and pasting in the locations that you use for your sidebar in this example I will default it to 'all' and you can edit it to your liking pending how you are already using the framework.

    Renderer:
    Code:
    CTA Countdown Timer Widget
    
    Position:
    Code:
    all
    
    and to activate the widget...
    Widget is Active: Checked
    Activate to use, set time and save.. All done!
