Default Help with Countdown Clocks, Links and Images.

To insert a clock into your posts you can follow these steps to place it into your "Signature". Once in your Signature it will appear in all of your posts that you have made and will make.

To access your Profile just click the Profile in upper, right of the screen. This will give you a screen that looks almost identical to the screen you received when you registered. About 2/3 of the way down the page you will see a box marked "Signature".

Insert the EXACT text below into the signature. This will give you a clock that says you are sailing on February 2, 2006 at 4:00 p.m. on the Coral Princess.

Code:
[img]/countdown.php?month=02&year=2006&day=09&hour=16:00[/img]Coral Princess
To make it your own change the month from 02 to the month you are sailing. The 2006 to the year you are sailing. 09 to the day your are sailing and the 16:00 (military time) to the hour you are sailing. Change the ship name to the ship you are sailing. The numbers and the ship name are the only things you should change.

For your avatars, they should already work, but you might have to just delete them and upload them again. For more information on how to use these boards, please go here:

I just keep repeating to myself: "Patience is a virtue, Patience is a virtue!" As long as I can still read and post I'll be okay .

I'll never understand wh people refuse to leave a good thing alone. It wasen't broke so why fix it ? It's NOT better. The boards are "busy".

Half the time the posts now look like a teenage chat room ..emoticons. please.. I despise change.

Paul, we like your changes. Can you tell us if the posts from your previous format will be moved to your new format database? 8)

Hi Paul,

Just curious

I'd like to know who Vjacheslav Trushkin is Apparently, from clicking his/her name, it is a company. But is there a "real" Vjacheslav Trushkin

Either way, I'd like to say thanks for the good work on this new site

Fern:
PHPbb (the board we use) is used by hundreds if not thousands of websites around the world. He developed this "theme" or overall look, he is not part of the Cruisemates staff.

Take care,
Mike

Paul, Upon more review of your site it apears you have many (or most of the older format posts). We were trying to find Kuki's SECRET cabin posts with a search, but have been unsuccessful, so far. 8)

Hi Mike,

Thanks! I thought he had an interesting name and wondered what it was he did. He must be doing very well for himself

Error Diagnostic Information
Template file not found.



HTTP/1.0 404 Object Not Found
Note: If you wish to use an absolute template path (e.g. TEMPLATE="/mypath/index.cfm") with CFINCLUDE then you must create a mapping for the path using the ColdFusion Administrator.

Using relative paths (e.g. TEMPLATE="index.cfm" or TEMPLATE="../index.cfm") does not require the creation of any special mappings. It is therefore recommended that you use relative paths with CFINCLUDE whenever possible.


The error occurred while processing an element with a general identifier of (CFINCLUDE), occupying document position (41:1) to (41:47).

Default A real newbie

I am sorry, but I do not understand where it is that we insert the code for the countdown clock. Is there somewhere I can get detailed instructions?

Well I obviously figured this out, do I have to do this for every post?

Hi vawterf,

Click "Profile" at the top right of the screen, in blue. Then you can copy and paste your countdown clock into the "Signature" block (toward the bottom of the screen). Then click "Save" and it should show up in all your posts .

I have my screen name, previous cruises, and my next cruise in my "Signature" block.

Hope this helps you,

Deppong;

Sorry, it can't go into your emails. It is actually a program that is executed on the server and displayed in each of your posts.

Take care,
Mike

this site hasn't worked properly since they changed the format. Furthermore they censor anything that is not to their liking. There perogitive but the opinions of the moderators are biased to their views

Jacqueline... You have to make the picture thew right size before you upload it. If it is not the right size it will not be saved on our server. You can use the Microsoft photo editor, or a free trial-ware program like PaintShop Pro
