I know I'm off this board now but I've been trying my hand at making blinkies so I made one for here:
delete the * when you paste the code into your siggie
Feel free to use it And don't hesitate to let me know if you have other design ideas.
If you want to link it to your Space:
[*url="URL of your Space"]*IMG]http://i1309.photobucket.com/albums/s624/BokkieNYC/PGOrg%20Blinkies/September2013b_zpsc8cae4b9.gif[/*IMG][*/url]
1) After the "URL=" part, you would put in the address to your journal between quotation marks
2) remove all the * in the code for it to work and display properly
You don't have to do that.
Put all of your ticker code thru BIT.LY and it will give you short code like this:
http://bit.ly/12UqciG (this is the actual link to the September Space blinkie)
then if you put it between the image tags [IMG] & [/IMG] it will show the blinkie as an image but will take up less characters in your siggie:
Put the URL to your space thru bit.ly and it will shorten that too, eg:
from http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboards/september-2013-778/%2A%2A%2A-september-2013-spaces%2A%2A%2A-703482/#post9042867 to http://bit.ly/XgKsnJ
(and if you right-click on the post # of your space, eg mine is #5, and select "copy link address" that URL will take you directly to your post on the Spaces board)
I did this to all of the links in my siggie, including the DaisyPath and LilyPie tickers. You can get lots of things in your siggie this way
