I am looking for a countdown timer that resets when it reaches 00:00:00

Basically I need it to set it the countdown from 12am to 2pm.

I'm new to jQuery and have not seen a script that does this yet...

If anyone knows I'd be grateful for the shared knowledge...

The best solution really depends on what you using the countdown timer for, if the count down is suppose to be continue through page loads, if it's based on server time or client time.

There are a few different solutions you can use. Most of which are pretty flexible.

http://keith-wood.name/countdown.html Is a jquery based system and you can easy make it functional with php by doing something like:
$('#timer').countdown({
    until: '<?php echo date("h:i:s"); ?>' // change this, obviously
});

Open in new window
