Love it, but would like the option to count all minutes or hours from a specified date.

Amazing easy to setup plugin. I was able to achieve exactly what I wanted with this plugin. Now on my front page at pipeworkpieces.com for potential customers I am able to easily change this from the back end based on my amount of orders. IMPORTANT NOTES: Delivery on items are 2 -4 weeks based on current orders in production and orders are scheduled to be made as they come in. If you place your order for your piece today your piece is guaranteed to be ready for shipping on Mon, Apr 12 . Great plugin
