Creating ticker

Would someone please tell me how to add the ticker link to my thread. I thought I knew how to create the ticker, but the screen have changed from last year. I have been unable to copy a link and have it appear as a ticker in my thread; the URL always appears instead. Connie's instructions from last year say to copy and past the HRML code, but none of the URLs are labelled that way on the new ticker thread.

I see that other people copied their ticker codes successfully. Thanks.

Go to the tickerfactory and create your ticker - select a bar, mover, enter your password, title your ticker and set your goals. Then save.

After that you will see the ticker you created but then you need to scroll down to HTML CODE (Blogs,website...) and copy the code.

Then paste the code in your thread (and the ticker thread)

Save the message(s) with the ticker code.

When you want to update the numbers on your ticker, just click on it, enter your password, and update your numbers. When you save the changes in tickerfactory, it will automatically save it wherever you posted your ticker.

>2 cyderry:. Thanks a lot. I got it this time. Probably the problem was the I was trying to create the ticker from going to my ticker for this year and selecting new ticker there. Somehow the program must not have known which kind of counting I was trying to do; I never got the HTML CODE as an option.

I just found this thread today and THANK YOU! I could not figure out how to do it myself for my 75 book challenge thread. (Kaida's Reading Adventures, Part 2)
Also I had no idea there was a ROOT challenge! Great, I joined, as for the last 3 years I have been doing such a challenge on my own.
