How do you add your sailings to signature?

Recommended Posts

How do you add your sailings to your profile? I see people with multiple sailings and I only show one on mine. Don't remember how I even got it there. Is it too late to add past sailings?

 

This is such a wonderful website!

Normally people add countdown clocks for upcoming sailings and if they wish they can manually put in their past sailings (although there is nothing to say you can't have the countdown clocks in there for past sailings). For countdown clocks there is a link at the top of the page that says "countdown clocks" that will help you set one up and has instructions for putting them in your signature. Edit your signature in the User CP link at the top of the page.

I am trying to add the countdown clock and cannot find it. At the top of what page? I can't even find where to add a signature

I'm not sure how to do that on the new website. To edit your signature click on the drop down arrow next to your user name at the top of the page and manage your account. Editing your signature is done from there. As for the countdown clocks I'm not sure where they moved that link to. There is a forum for reporting glitches on the new website and people may be discussing this issue in that forum.

Countdown clocks are tricky now -- the old clock option isn't available, and the new format can't accept HTML clocks that you can find on the internet.  There are a few sites that allow you to create a countdown clock in bbcode instead of html, and those will work, though they're not the greatest in terms of options.  Tickerfactory and cruiseclocks both have that option, and there are more (but less graphically-enhanced) if you search for countdown clocks that have a bbcode option.

after you edit  what you want  click SAVE

there are limits to how many clock you can add  & the size of the irmation in the  signature

Thanks LHT28  -- I couldn't find that when I went looking for it previously.  Of course, maybe previously it wasn't available, since this site is changing day by day.  Hour by hour, even.

My clock was (re-)created after the forum change. I think if you click on the clock, and then go to that website's home page, you will find instructions on creating a similar clock.

 

The new forum has limits on the number of images and lines of content in your signature. Old signatures are grandfathered but any changes require that the entire signature is compliant with the new requirement.

Thank you for this tip as well!. I do like the itinerary posted - but with the line restrictions, I wonder if it works. I appreciate your detailing the line restrictions too
