How to add a useful graphical tracker to your TrimYou blogs using the TickerFactory.com free tickers.
Q: How do I use these tickers on my TrimYou blog post?
A: You simply need to copy one of the code blocks presented to you on the last page of the ticker designer. The code to select depends on the site or board where you would like to display it.
For the KetoMist Support Group blogs it is best to use the HTML code provided to add your Weight Loss Ticker to your posts.
Before you begin, please make sure your Ticker is updated (on the TickerFactory site) and that you have your KetoMist blog
post open and ready for editing.
Helpful Tip: Have the blog post you wish to add your Ticker to and your Ticker designer open in two seperate windows or tabs on your browser. This will allow you to toggle back and forth between the two webpages without having to log into each one individually.
Step-by-step instructions to adding your ticker to your blog post.
Step 1: At the bottom of last page of the ticker designer you will see the HTML Code Box. Highlight and copy all of the code in this box.
Step 2: Go to the blog post you wish to add the ticker on. On the right hand side of your blog "Entry Box" you will see two tabs. "Visual Mode" tab and an "HTML Editor" tab. Select the HTM L Editor tab.
Step 3: Here you will see the HTML code for your entire blog post and this is where you will be pasting the HTML code of your Ticker. To make it easier for updating in the future I suggest you choose to post your Ticker at the very beginning or the very end of your blog post. Select your location and paste the
Ticker's HTML code.
Step 4: Click the "Visual M ode" tab at the top of your blog entry box. You will now see your Ticker on your blog post. You can add your text above or below the Ticker image.
Step 5: If you are happy with the way it looks on your blog, click the publish button at the bottom of your blog post.
You have now added your Weight Loss Ticker to your blog!
You will need to follow the above steps each time you want to update your Ticker on your blog post. In order to do this you will need to access the HTML code of your blog's ticker (Step 2 above) and delete the previous Ticker's HTML code (in your blog) first.
The easiest way to do this is from the "Visual Mode" tab. Click on the Ticker Image and select "Delete".
You can now follow the steps above to post your updated Ticker.
