    I was wondering about a problem I'm having with a particular quit-smoking banner in my sig; the ones from Since My Last Cigarette don't seem to work -- I can get the link in there, but the image won't display, though I've verified in my browser than both the link and the image link are valid.

    Help?

    Thx!

    Hi Andria, possibly because it's a GIF.

    Both actually. The banner you see is not the Since My Last Cigarette banner, because that one won't show up. That's the Ecig Alternative banner, but I'd really rather use the Since My Last Cigarette banner. If I put in the url for the image in the browser address line, it shows up just fine, so it's perfectly valid -- but VU won't display it.

    And no, it's not a GIF, it's a PNG.

    Have you tried a simple copy/Paste?
    Although that won't keep the counter going.

    I've used one before and I had to copy code for it. It worked fine, I just removed it for other stuff. For one that counts daily, you might have to select a different one if that's not working properly.

    Ok, here's a test:

    [​IMG]

    See that? Yeah, me either. I pasted the URL for the image itself right above this line. VU WILL NOT SHOW IT. What I can't figure out is, WHY?

    Another test:

    [​IMG]

    The entire BBcode segment for the banner, with the link, is just above this line.

    You need the code in your signature settings in your profile. Copy and paste the code, not in the pic link, but in your signature.

    Hmm... you're seeing it, but I can't see it at all, in VU. Maybe i should try doing it in chrome instead of FF.

    If you're pasting a link in the pic box area, you're only going get get a pic. If the banner you want doesn't offer a code to paste, it's not going to work properly.

    I figured it out! I wasn't seeing it in chrome either -- turns out it was the stupid ABP blocking it! Idiot thing!

    So in the famous words of Emily Litella: "Nevermind." :)

    Now it works. As you can see, the time count on this one is much more accurate than on any of the others -- that's why I wanted to use it; the others are giving me an extra day of quit time, probably something to do with leap year or something like that.

    Hi @AndriaD! I haven't been on - my back flared up big time. I couldn't walk for 4 days. Chuck had to help me. I'm still bad today. Shuffling around the house like I'm 99 yrs old and my legs would give out on me. Good thing I see the doc on Wednesday for a new set of shots. And, the new meds make me lose my memory sometimes and my coordination. Trying to type takes me twice as long. Gaah! Falling apart at age 56. 31 days until 57. Oh joy.

    But, I get to spend $2,000 vape shopping! And what the hell is going on with FastTech? They won't let you check out with PayPal. Bitcoins. They want you to check out with Bitcoins. I don't have freakin' Bitcoins! My hubby does. I either use my Visa or PayPal. Anyone know what's going on there?

    Andrea, I lost our conversation for some reason. If you still have it, would please send it?

    This would be worthy of it's own thread. Not quite as visible in this one.
