Instructions on how to add a ticker into your signature (pictures included!)
Members earn the ability to add a signature after they have been a member for 25 days and have 25 posts. Once you receive this option, here are some instructions on how to add a ticker. If you still have problems doing so, feel free to send me a PM or email me at cherilynn8@hotmail.com with your ticker link and I will be happy to add it in for you!!

The following are step by step instructions on how to add a ticker into your signature... You can do it two ways... Of course if you still have problems getting one into your signature spot you can always email me to help at cherilynn8@hotmail.com or contact the website.. We are always happy to help...

First of all go to the http://tickerfactory.com/ezticker/ti...ner.php?type=3 to create your ticker (They have step by step instructions there on how to make them.. Once you have your finished ticker on the page you will need to either right click on it and save it to your computer in your picture folder or grab the addy they provide. 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..


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.. Option two is where you browse for your ticker if you saved it on your computer..


In option one add the http addy you get from the ticker factor site (it ends in png) As follows..


Then click Save Signature on the bottom of the page and it will add it to your signature..


In option two you will look for your ticker that you saved on your computer.. Click on browse.. find the ticker and click on the ticker so it highlights it..


and then click on open..


The ticker will go into the browse line as so..


Then click Save Signature..


It will add it to your signature spot..


I hope this helps...

Tip #1:

One thing I want to mention is the biggest error that people make is not having the [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] in their signature box.. without that the ticker will not show up.


Tip #2:

If your ticker turns black like the one in the following picture it means you are copying the wrong addy to paste into option 1.. Make sure you pick the one that ends in png.. It is the second one..

I feel silly, but I don't seem to have an edit signature box and have checked all the other options....:P

You will have that option after you've been registered for 25 days and have 25 posts :)

I have over 25 posts and a member for over 25 days and I don't have a edit signature box. I'm at a loss right now

I'm having a problem that my ticker shows up with the black background although I followed the directions exactly. I have tried both options only to get the same result. Help!!!

When I save the pic as an png on the computer, it looks fine. Just when it is uploaded in the signature, the background turns black???

It looks like it is working now.. Its hard to say why it turns back.. it does do that from time to time.. but not very often.

Hi cheri, umm its actually not working as you can see. It looked like it was working before when I tried uploading the image save on my phone instead my conputer. But when i add the direct link it does this again. Why? Help!! What am i doing wrong???
