How to add a vacation ticker to your forum signature?

Postby rayy » Fri Sep 12, 2008 12:56 pm

Hey Watering Hole users... you can now add your own vacation ticker to your signature on the Watering Hole just as I have below. To place this cool little widget in your posts, follow these simple instructions:

1. Go to the vacation ticker page: http://gapadventures.com/widgets/

2. Click on "Create Your Ticker"

2. Fill out the departure info and country you'll be visiting.

3. When the ticker is created, copy the embed code under the bbCode label. The code will look similar to this:
Code: Select all

4. Click on the User Control Panel link at the top of the forum then hit the Profile tab. Select Edit Signature.

5. Paste the code you copied in step 3 into the box and submit. A vacation ticker will now appear on the bottom of all your Watering Hole posts.

The ticker is great!
Quick question, and I've scoured different topics/FAQ for the last 20 or so minutes so sorry if it's answered somewhere really obvious, how do you add one of those "ask me about my trip to *insert country here*" widgets to your sig? Thanks :D :D

I did find the timer! Just not the other widget that you have in your sig. If you could point me in the direction of that one I'd be most grateful!! :D

That happens automatically once the date has passed. So once you have reached 317 days then your ticker will change to 'ask me about my adventure...'.
