Description
This product add two new BBCodes as follows:
[COUNTDOWN]00:00:00:00[/COUNTDOWN]
... and
[ECOUNTDOWN]00:00:00:00[/ECOUNTDOWN]
The string inside the BBCode is:
DAYS:HOURS:MINUTES:SECONDS, that you specify when make a post.

The results is a live countdown timer based on a specified Timezone! See screenshots!

But what's the difference between [COUNTDOWN] and [ECOUNTDOWN]?
COUNTDOWN has a start date-time, the date-time the item is posted.
As many times you edit the message, countdown timer will not change its start date.

ECOUNTDOWN is a countdown timer which will restart each time you edit a post! See it in action!


::EXAMPLE::

Let's say you make a post at: 1:00PM with bbcode:
[COUNTDOWN]00:02:00:00[/COUNTDOWN]

When the post saved, the countdown timer will start from:
00:02:00:00
and will countdown...
00:01:59:59...
00:01:59:58... etc
and will end at 3:00PM.

So the countdown timer will run at post time + the value you set inside the bbcode.
As times you edit the post, the countdown timer will end at 3:00PM 'cause is [COUNTDOWN], not [ECOUNTDOWN].



The same if at 1:00PM you make a post with bbcode:
[ECOUNTDOWN]00:02:00:00[/ECOUNTDOWN]
.. but if for example you edit the post at 2:00PM and hit save, the countdown timer will start again:
00:01:59:59...
00:01:59:58... etc
... and will end at 4:00PM

So in "E" case, we have the edit time (if an edit exists, otherwise we have the initial post time) + the value you set inside the bbcode. As many times you edit a post with "E", the timer will start again.
This bbcode can work on display of:
  • Forum Posts
  • Forum Announcements
  • Social Group Messages
  • Private Messages
  • Profile Visitor Messages

Installation
1. Upload all files of /upload folder to your forum root.
2. Import *xml product and check Settings.
Done!!

Yes, it successfully hit 0.



I just created a new one, this time as the thread starter:


-------------

Make sure you have CloudFlare turned OFF.
That causes an issue with this Mod.


Note: If something goes wrong, I will report it here. Otherwise assume it is still working fine.

Edit: Still working fine.

anyone have one that works on vb5?

I am being told That VB5 is a mistake. I spent over $400 on vb5 and have been getting told that I should not have bought it because VB5 is dead and no one is making mods for it. can't even get a simple countdown timer to work on it.
