The JavaScript.

In most cases you don’t need this JavaScript but if you want to add a setTimout function than here it is. Just make sure to add the main jQuery file to run this function. You can use your own function to update this counter in JavaScript.

setTimeout(function(){
	$('.bocata').addClass('new_message');
}, 1000);

setTimeout(function(){
	$('.message_length span').html('101');
}, 2200);
