  • Hi darcibeisheim,
    Here's how to add a ticker to your CafeMom signature:

    Click on the 'Personal Details' button underneath your profile picture.
    Click the 'Signatures' link on the left side of the page.
    Click on 'Add a Rich Text Signature'.
    Name of your signature.
    In a new browser window, go to
    Toward the top of Lilypie, you'll see different ticker types to choose from.
    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 in the 'Image URL' box.
    Return to your CafeMom account.
    Paste the code you copied from Lilypie into the 'Signature Body' box.
    Click 'Add'.
