A couple of people have been asking about making tickers, so I thought I would do a post to help Smile

Go to a tickersite, there are heaps you can find by googling tickers, or try one of these:

www.tickerfactory.com
http://www.bump-and-beyond.com/tickers.php
http://women.evenhealth.com/image/cgi-bin/pregnancy-tickers.cgi

Choose the type of ticker you would like. Most sites have pregnancy, birthday, weightloss & 'any event' tickers. Follow the prompts to create your ticker. You will need to choose a background, a slider, fill in the date you are counting to and any text.

Once you are done the site will give you a choice of the 'code' you would like. You need to copy (highlight & then press "ctrl" and "c") the BBCODE.


You have now made your ticker, now for adding it to your signature on the forum....

Log in to the forum and go into your profile. You can find this at the top of the forum. You need to paste the BBCODE into the Signature box. You can do this by clicking inside the signature box and then pressing "ctrl" and "v".

Save the changes to your signature and your done Smile


Hope this helps Cool
