Tickers Anyone??

I have no clue what I am doing wrong. I uploaded the url it said to on the signature page, but it's just posting the link? Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Beverly, I had to ask the administrator (Cherie I think) to help me the first time. After that, updating has been no problem.

I just go in and change mine about once a month, because that's about how often I lose. Reload it, and post.

Yeah that's the instructions I followed, however, must not have followed them correctly.

JMBM, are you pasting the actual bb code? Try including that to get the ticker to post instead of the direct image url.

See below

It's blurry. I'm just going to have to play with it to see if I can fix it. When I created it, it said you could copy paste, but I didn't see anything in my toolbar to select, File, copy, and paste. I don't know what the control keys are for those commands. Have I proved I'm a complete idiot yet? lol

Is your computer a PC? If so, just highlight the bb code and hold down the Control button and press the letter C. This is the Copy shortcut. Then, when you want to paste the code, hold down the Control button and hit the letter V. This is the shortcut for the Paste function.

C and V gotcha. That's part of the problem. Did not remember which keys did what function.

Keep getting Invalid URL message. Got the copy paste figured out and I've tried copying and pasting any of the url's just to make sure I got the right one and it's still giving me the invalid URL message. I'm going to have to try later. I'm getting frustrated1 lol

JMBM, instead of the URL, try pasting the actual bb code. It should loook like below. BB code is best for message boards (like LC Friends).

url=http://www.TickerFactory.com/weight-loss/wMsSXPF/

Have Cherie help you. Once she puts it in, somehow she makes magic and its able to be re-done from there.
Make sure the image you save is the .png and not a .jpg
You can also "right click" to get up the option for copy and paste.

I had one and it was perfect until I updated it and then it turned black and remained that way even when I removed it and tried again so I just deleted the thing.

I don't even try to update mine. I just go back to lily slim, put the numbers in, copy and paste it in my signature. Like I said, I have to update it so seldom, it's really not a big deal. 5 minutes, tops.

ETA: I get the added bonus of changing my picture/slider each time if I want.

I got it back on there, but it's still blurry. You can't even make out what the numbers say. Oh well, I'll try to get in touch w/Cheri and see if she can fix it. Not a big deal. I just think they're cute.

Cindy I would love that, but am almost reluctant as I don't think I could take the embarrassment of not being able to figure that out as well. What's a PM?

First, right click on the ticker in your PM. Then "save as", ticker to your computer. Then go to your control panel and "edit sig". then in the box that has your info, put your cursor at the top of the page, so it's blinking. then in option 2 at the bottom of the page, browse and find "ticker" or whatever you named it and load. Then click on "insert signature" in that same area....hope that helps!

I tried it and it said not a valid image file. I wonder if the system has locked me out or something b/c down at the bottom where it says signature permissions there are a lot of "No's" Especially on the BB ones.

It's not even giving me the insert button option. Idk what the crap is going on. I copied and pasted to my computer, went back and grabbed it to up load it in then when you hit up load it says the same stupid invalid image url. I'm just going to see if I can get Cheri to help, or just not have one. This is driving me crazy. I'm sure it's operator error.

You also need the [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] (or whatever it is) in your text signature line. Also, you do have to be a member for a certain amount of time before you can get a ticker, could be that you're just not quite there yet. But, seriously, Cheri is awesome, she was super helpful and did it lickity split. And once she put mine up I was able to update it. But as an update I always right click to "save as" and upload the picture. I never do the code.
Also, another thing I found was that certain backgrounds on the ticker turned it all black. I originally had the trees, similar to yours but not exactly, and ended up having to change it to the rope in order to have it save and transfer nicely. When I tried to do the trees, it was all black and nasty. So play around with that too.
If you're not dead set on having a horse, there are several other sites that work without problems, like lilyslim and others if you google "weight loss tickers" There is even a Disney based one! But me, dang it, I wanted that horse and this site that has the biggest bugaboos is the only one that offered a horse!!!
