Default OT- Help with Images & Countdown?

Sorry Everyone,

I can't seem to get an answer anywhere when I ask this question So- I thought I would bug you guys because you are always so helpful.

How do I do the countdown clock? My attempts on prevous posts in other sections have failed.

I'm going to try an image - that will probably fail too! Gads, I'm such a dork-lol.

Thank you for your help if you can offer any.

My next project will be figuring out how to put some photos in the gallery

Sunny Days and Happy Cruising,
deja



if that worked I will be amazed - lol

Help is on the way! lol!

It took all night to figure this out, and I wasted a ton of space on other board sections testing it, they should ban me for the blatant abuse I felt terrible but I was so frustrated!!

- here is what you do.

At the bottom of each message thread you see underlined, "My Profile". Open that up. You are going to put the following information in the signature:

""


where you see cdt=2002;10;22;17;00;00 change those numbers keeping the same format- to your: year, month, day, hour and seconds (left until your cruise).

GMT-0500 is east coast time zone. You have to enter your own time zone, the
example above -0500 is eastern time, -0600 would be central time - it's how many hours we are west of GMT. (confused yet? )

Make sure you preface it with the [img] tag and at the end with the [/img] tag-leaving off the quotation marks.
Then below it or above it you can enter what you wish, such as Time To The Grand or Countdown to [enter your ship name here], whatever you wish to call it.

when you check the box " Add my signature to this post" it will always appear.

I hope this helps!!

Good lord - it made the clock when I meant to show the code- sheesh... how do I now show the code? I'm cracking up here. OK let me try this again just to show you the code:

http://escati.linkopp.net/cgi-bin/co...zone=GMT-0500f

take that exact code and follow the instructions above- you must now preface it with

[img] and end it with [/img]

Is everyone ready to shoot me yet? Tar and feather? Hang me by my finger nails?

I hope it works this time and that you guys can follow the instructions. I'm crossing my fingers and toes

Good Luck!

One more time-

I am an html boob. I am so sorry.

preface that code with img [in brackets] and end it with /img [in brackets]
when I tried to enter it exact html took over and didn't show it. So one more time:


http://escati.linkopp.net/cgi-bin/co...zone=GMT-0500f

after cdt= enter the year;month;day;hour;seconds

GMT- enter your time zone

remember the img /img brackets at the beginning and end, make sure there are no spaces anywhere - and you should be all set!!

(whew)



deja Who you are probably all set to strangle now

Wooohooo!

Yay!! it's working!!

Good job!!

Ack! To do 2 of them - put one in notepad on your desktop and paste it into the message by hand. There isn't room in the sig file to fit them both! I figured that out the hard way too.

I'll look at your Sensation one and if I see a glitch I'll email it back to you.

Yay!

Thanks Deja! I just copied out of your email, hopefully it works. Also, I don't have anywhere to insert it into signature on this post. What is wrong? Why can't I access my profile?
