Ticker....How to add a ticker to your progress reports....
« on: September 29, 2006, 10:45:26 AM »

The process is a "cut and paste".

1) Go to the tickerfactory.com website. 
   
     Select   Weight Loss 
                 (follow the instructions to pick your slider and icon)
                 
                 When you have reached the end of your selections you will see your ticker.  Save your ticker if you like it.  Go
                 back and make changes if you don't. 
               
                 You will see a message that says "You're Done - Your ticker url is: http://tickerfactory.com

      Click inside the bbCode box.  Highlight the complete entry.  The code starts with [url and ends with [/url]

                      Not all of the code appears in the window.  You may have to hold your clicker down and drag it down slightly.
                       You must highlight ALL of the code or it won't work. 
      Move your mouse arrow up the the top toolbar.

      Click "Edit"

      Click "Cut"

2)   Now you proceed to the SLD website.  Login.

      Click "Profile".  It is located next to "Logout"

      Click "Forum Profile Information".  It is located within the menu selections on the left.

      Scroll down to "Signature"

      Click inside the Signature box to the place the cursor there.

      Now..move your mouse arrow to the top toolbar and Click "Edit".  Click "Paste".

3)  Lastly....Scroll down a little further ( on your profile page ) and Click "Change Profile".

Congratulations....Your ticker will now display...When you want to change the statistics on your ticker you will have to delete your old one and then replace it with the new one.....

Hope these instructions help...I know it's lengthy, but I wanted to list each and every step for those of us who can be clicker challenged...

Highlight the old one, copy the new one and right click 'paste'. It'll go in place of the old one.

Dear Bekel - thanks so much for trying to help us newbies.  I have followed every step you explained, and can't get anything to happen when I click in the signature area.  Please help.  Thank you!

xfarmer, it looks like you are pasting the URL location, rather than the bbCode -- below where you got the URL, there are three different types of board styles to choose from.  You want to use the first board code, bbCode.

To delete you would do the following:

Click "profile".

Click "update profile information"

Highlight the information within "signature"

   to make it disappear either depress your "delete" key on your keyboard or depress your "spacebar" on your keyboard.

Then repeat the process to "add a ticker" by going back to the tickerfactory. com site and changing your weight there, copying and pasting the new information into your "signature". 

Please remember to delete all the of the old info  and  to copy all of the new info.  Also - remember to "SAVE/Update".

Hope it helps...Let me know...

cookie3, I was wondering about the same thing myself, and I think I finally figured out that going back and adjusting it replaces the ticker for all previous posts.  There are some people whose ticker is different depending on when their post was.  I believe they are starting a new ticker each time a change happens.  Try that and see if it works.
