Description: Plugin kk countdown counts down to specific dates in the future.
Install KK Countdown:
1. In a page header following files should be included:
- jQuery – download HERE
- plugin – kkcountdown.min.js

- class – kkcount-down
- data-time – in this case the value indicates the date. This attribute needs to be expressed in digits only. You can use this time converter.
<span class="kkcount-down" data-time="1420066800"></span>
This tag can be put in a random place on the webpage.

- CHANGE: Minor changes have been made in the script which protect against conflicts with other page elements.
