    [Scandal's] Countdown Timer BBCode

    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:
