Hi, how do I add a wedding countdown to profile so that it shows when I post replies?

If you create a ticker on some other website they will likely provide you with code either a URL to the image itself which may look something like this:
Code: Select all
http://www.myweddingticker.com/abunchofjunk

or they may provide you with HTML code used to display the image which may look more like this:
Code: Select all
<img src="http://www.myweddingticker.com/abunchofjunk">

or if they add a hyperlink around the image so when you click the image it takes you back to their website something like this:
Code: Select all
<a href="http://www.myweddingticker.com"><img src="http://www.myweddingticker.com/abunchofjunk"></a>


You need to copy the URL to the image itself and paste it into your profile's signature here:
ucp.php?i=profile&mode=signature
so it looks something like this:
Code: Select all
[img]http://www.myweddingticker.com/abunchofjunk[/img]


If you create a ticker on a website and copy and paste the code they provide into a reply here I should be able to tell you how to edit it. Also when you paste the code into a post please add the code markers around the code like this:
Code: Select all
[code]here's the code from the ticker website[/code]
around the code so that the code isn't formatted strangely in the post.

NOTE: I don't know if the website myweddingticker.com exists - I used that only for example purposes.

OK so you need to copy:
Code: Select all
[img]http://www.weddingcountdown.com/ticker/vz118s00uer.png[/img]

And paste here:
ucp.php?i=profile&mode=signature

Then it should like this in you signature below every post:
