You can design and set your Travel Countdown Ticker at TickerFactory.com, they'll easily walk you through making it.

When your are done at TickerFactory.com, the final page there will offer you three types of code that you can use to link to your ticker.

1) bbCode:
2) HTML:
3) Direct Image URL:

You'll want the stuff in the bbCode box (FYI: the bb stands for "Bulletin Board" - which is the industry name for forums like TravelTalkOnline.)

The code offered to you in the bbCode block will look something like this:
----------------------------------
[url=http://www-TickerFactory.com/]
[img]htttp://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt/d/4;10716;405/st/20141208/e/Testing/k/1dd1/event.png[/img]
[/url]
--------------------------------

Just copy the part between... the [img] and [/img] tags, BEING SURE TO INCLUDE... those [img] and [/img] tags and those square brackets surrounding them []. What you should copy should look something like this below:
--------------------------------
[img]htttp://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt/d/4;10716;405/st/20141208/e/Testing/k/1dd1/event.png[/img]
--------------------------------

Once you have this text copied, go back to TTOL, sign in, and head to "My Home" and then to the "Personal information, email, password, etc." section, choose "Edit" and then paste this copied TickerFactory info. into the box titled "Signature (up to 250 characters)...."

Lastly be sure to hit the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page, and you are done!

Very cool! (Now can we trade countdowns?)

I would like to thank Modi once again for this valuable guide. Every year I have to relearn this process! Lol

It doesn't show up in your posts, but just on your own computer, at the top of the forum, but there is also a ticker built into TTOL. To access it, go your "My Home" Scroll down to Main Configuration. Click on EDIT in your Personal Information. Scroll almost to the bottom and you can insert your next trip date. Once you're done, make sure you scroll down to the bottom and hit "submit".

The advantage to you is that you see it whenever you are on the board, but others can't see it, in case you'd rather not have your dates so obvious to others.
