This is a clone of the Milestone widget seen on WordPress.com. This uses the same CSS styling and should be more or less functionally equivalent to the plugin. However, this is not the official Milestone plugin.
Install the plugin using your preferred method of choice. Using the built-in WordPress installer is the preferred choice, but you can also do things the hard/manual way by extracting the zip file and droping the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation.
Add Milestone in the widget area, then configure the date to count down to.
- Is this the exact same plugin on WordPress.com?
No, this is a clone that I made from scratch with the exception of the CSS.
