    Excellent countdown timer for my forum, and setup is so easy and self explanatory. Only one small critique, it would be good if we alter the colour of the numbers backgound.

    If I could give this 6 stars I would.
    Perfect for my website. Very easy to use, no need to access backend to add, edit, remove timers. Love it. An image link addition so users could add a backrop if they wish would be nice if possible. Tested fine, looks great. Love it.
