    The ability to post HTML (and any other markup/script/executable code) is heavily restricted for security reasons.

    That'll only allow you to post a link.

    You might find an image-based countdown timer which will work on the forum, it'll just be a bit less dynamic - i.e. it'll calculate time remaining and render an image to a static URL; it won't continue to count down after the page loads, but it'll at least show time remaining at the point the page loads.
