Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get my ticker to show up? I followed the directions. When I try using the link with the png ending I get the message that the remote file is too large. When I copy and save it to my computer and then try uploading it that way, the ticker shows up with the black background and missing numbers. Thanks for any help you can give.

Never mind, I figured it out. I just had to resize it to a smaller size and upload it from my computer.

Hi Jordan.. I am not sure why you are having problems.. How about sending me your ticker link or the ticker itself and I can add it into your signature for you! You can send it to cherilynn8@hotmail.com or you can also send it to the site. We will get it in there for you!

Take care..

I realize that you have to be a member for 60 days to have your signature and have 60 post but can you add your own ticker that does not come by way of the signature option.

I have a ticker in signature but want to change the weight. I didn't have much problem with it originally but now can't figure out how I did it or how to change the weight. I have it stored on my computer. Do I need to completely redo it just like when I first added it to my signature?

I ended up just making a new ticker. It says we can use a code and to change ticker but I haven't been able to get it to work.

I added it in for you. You almost had it but when you added it, it had a white background and was distorted (squished together). It looks okay now.

Take care!!

Thanks! That one I had on there before was actually one I made at a different site because I could not get this one to work. Thank you for fixing it but now I'm worried that when I update it, it won't change in my signature and I'll be back in the same place I am now.
I love this one so much more than what I'd made! UG!!!

I love the tickers! Since rejoining I need to get my count back up.
Cheri, I am so glad to see your familiar face. I remember you from way back when I was in here as garnetmoon.
(and by way back I mean like 2003 way back!) LOL

WOAH not sure what happened, I rejoined had 6 posts, then was denied access. All of a sudden now I am Senior Member with 423 posts with join date of 2005. Did someone link my new name to my old one?

Either way, I am so glad to be back!

Morning Cheri!

I am doing DANDR Atkins. Tried NANY and it just isn't the same for me. Gotta go with what works, right?! One size doesn't fit all, not all diets are for everyone.

So many things have happened since I was last here, we've endured not one but 2 deployments, eldest child is now a freshman in college, youngest is in high school...among a gazillion other things! I figured it's finally time for me to put a little focus on myself. Sneaking toward my mid 40's, I figure it's time!

Hi Cheri,

I've been a member since 9/2011 but have mostly read and not posted so don't meet ticker post requirements. I started induction today! Was making good progress losing until a medical problem derailed me a year and a half ago.

May I have a ticker though I don't have 25 posts?

Thanks!

Okay, forgive me for sounding ornery, but why is this so difficult?? I had one yesterday using a saved image to my computer from Ticker Factory. Do I really have to create a new ticker every time I want to update it, save it to my computer, and upload it here? Every single time? I thought clicking on the ticker would take us to TF to update our stats and bada bing, it'd be updated here. I've read through all five pages and have been trying to do this for well over an hour, with tickers from both the TF and another site. Nothing works.

I've created websites from html on notepad, for goodness sakes, why is this so difficult? Cheri, I started to email you my link, but I wanna do it.

Apologies for sounding biligerant. I can't help thinking this oughta be easier than needing a sticky and 5 pages deep.

Please don't kick me out, I really like it here.

Hi hun.. I sometimes think Tickerfactory has issues.. Now.. If you save your ticker to your computer it will assign it a new name so you will have to create a new one each time.. though it doesn't take long once you are used to making them.. so if you are not changing it constantly it isn't a big deal.. If you save it from the http addy they give you, then each time you change it on the ticker site it should change it on this site automatically.. If you are still having issues hun, feel free to send me the link and I will be happy to add it in for you!! Really, it is no trouble what so ever!!

So, here's the three options they give you:

bbCode
HTML
Direct Image URL

Which one do we use? I've tried all three and get error codes, invalid file codes, remote image too large, etc.

I did try viewing your very first post on this thread using another browser so I could follow the images, but it seems things are a bit different than in my Control Panel. I'm going to try it again and if I absolutely can't get it, I'll send it to you.

Thanks, Cheryl.

Okay, I did the Option 1 laid out in the first post.

They provide several but here is the one you should pick.. pick the one on the bottom (http://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt...FcN/weight.png) No need to save the img tags.

Now you are ready to add your Ticker..

Go to your user control panel and click on edit signature.. Go to the Edit Signature Box Here you want to add [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] as in the following picture..


(ETA, there is no picture, but I know where it is)

Next scroll down to the Signature Picture box.. Here you have two options.. Option one is adding the ticker with the http addy from the ticker site..

I've got [sigpic][/sigpic] up in signature box, then added the direct image url below in the other little box. I get a "remote file too large" error.

Not quite ready to give up yet.

Grrrr ...
