The existing discussions on this are ancient, and don't address my question, so creating a new one.

I've downloaded this, installed it, enabled it, put in the settings, but for the life of me can't figure out how you insert it so it appears in a discussion. Maybe the plug-in is just not working, but I feel like I'm just missing something basic. Can anyone walk me through what's supposed to happen for a user when they open a new discussion and want to insert a countdown?

In the settings, I kept the text [COUNTDOWN], and then just added after that the text I want to follow it.

In the date field, I put the time and date the event will occur. I picked our time zone, NYC.

Alas, there is no prompt when I try to create a new discussion.


PS, I see my first effort, commenting on an earlier discussion has popped up on the general board too. My bad. I saw the "necro" on the Countdown page, and did not realize that meant it was going up on the general board. I thought it meant it was NOT going anywhere. Sorry for the clutter.
