I'm also trying to add a special countdown banner from mickeypath.com. I haven't been able to figure it out or understand any of the mentioned directions. Could someone explain to a computer illiterate what to do? Thanks
To add an easy, simple countdown timer to the bottom of your signature, click on My Home > Edit Options, scroll to the bottom of the window, and type in the necessary information for your countdown timer.
Once you've entered your countdown information, click Save Changes. Your countdown timer should appear at the bottom of your signature (as seen in posts) immediately.
Be sure you have information in your signature. Without something in your signature -- even just your name -- the countdown timer can't be put in it. You can edit your signature in My Home > Edit Signature.
Does your countdown seem off? Make sure you don't have the month and day mixed up in your options.
Do not use the ampersand (&) anywhere in your ticker (i.e., the event or end message) -- if you do, it will not display.
I just went to MY Home, Edit Options and added my dates and clicked on Enable the Countdown and Save Changes and when I quick replied to a message my countdown didn't show up. Have I done something wrong?
