I need help on making signatures!

I've been trying to put blinkies and Lilypie tickers in my signature but all that shows up are the HTML codes. I can never get it to show the actual blinkies or tickers. I've been copying the HTML codes from the websites and pasting them in the signature box but it isn't working. I've even tried using the BBcode (whatever that is) and it still doesn't work. Help please!

  • Hi momma_gig,

    Here's how to add a ticker to your signature:

    Click the 'My CafeMom' tab.
    Click on the 'Personal Details' button underneath your profile picture.
    Click the 'Signatures' link on the left side of the page.
    Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on 'Add a Rich Text Signature'.
    Enter the name of your signature.
    Open a new browser window.
    In the new browser window, go to www.lilypie.com.
    Select the background of your ticker.
    Scroll to the bottom and click 'Step 2'.
    Select your marker, then scroll to the bottom and click 'Step 3'.
    Enter your child’s birth date, select the background, and input the text for your ticker.
    Click the 'Create Ticker' button when you're done.
    Copy the code (control + c) in the 'Image URL' box.
    Return to your CafeMom account.
    Paste the code (control + v) you copied from Lilypie into the 'Signature Body' box.
    Click 'Add'.

    Enter the name for your signature.
    Open a new browser window.
    In the new browser window, go to www.glitter-graphics.com (or www.blinkyou.com).
    Choose your blinkie.
    On the preview page for your blinkie, scroll down and click in the box with the HTML code.
    Copy that code (control + c).
    Return to your CafeMom account.
    Paste the code (control + v) in the 'Signature Body' box.
    Click 'Add'.

    When you return to the 'Manage Signatures' page, you will only see the code that you pasted. To preview the blinkie, click on the 'Edit Signature' link and save it.

  • Another way to add a blinky is to save it directly to your computer (if the site you get it from allows you to), upload it to photobucket.com (a free site to use) and then use the "direct link" code. In your signature you would have to click on "Add A Photo" and then click the "Paste a URL". That is where you would put the direct link code. :o)

  • I've tried to add the ticker in the 'Signature Body' but it just comes out as HTML. What did I do wrong here?
