    It didn't work. I'll just stick to one countdown.

    The length of the countdown scripts is pretty long, so trying to use two easily goes over character the limit you set.

    Dissy,

    Are you sure you're using the basic editor and copying and pasting all the code as in the instructions? PM me or a Mod for more assistance if you like

    The version I think you are trying to use doesn't work anymore, so.....


    If you go to the v50 site : http://v50.net/cdgenerator.php

    1. enter your trip date in "countdown to date" part
    2. give your countdown a name
    3. press "generate countdown"

    on the newly generated countdown
    1. highlight the "bulletin board code" URL
    2. copy that line. be sure to include the [IMG] part

    go to user cp on DWT
    1. choose edit signature
    2. paste the bulletin board code
    3. click on save signature

    that should work.
    One thing about this v50 countdown, it will not click down the time like a clock, it gives you the time remaining to your trip when the countdown is shown

    Hope that helps
