[Scandal's] Countdown Timer BBCode
This product add two new BBCodes as follows:
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!
Let's say you make a post at: 1:00PM with bbcode:
When the post saved, the countdown timer will start from:
and will countdown...
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:
.. but if for example you edit the post at 2:00PM and hit save, the countdown timer will start again:
... 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.
