How do I create a ticker on Daisypath?

Choose kind of ticker: Starting from the Home page, click on the kind of ticker you want to make.

Select the ticker format: The full size tickers are the most popular. The mini-tickers are good for sites with size restrictions or narrow columns.

Create your ticker:
  1. Choose a scene: Select the background you want for your ticker.
  2. Choose a slider: Select the slider you want to move along your ticker. Please note, sliders move along according to the months, not the years. For instance, for a ticker that shows how old your child is, you could think of the slider as showing how close you are to your child's next birthday.
  3. Add Details: Select the event date, and add details about your event. For the Information below the ticker, the years, months, weeks and days are calculated for you each day. The Information below the ticker option lets you customise the text at the beginning and/or end of the sentence.
Start using your tickers: You can add your ticker to many blogs, websites, forum posts and email signatures. Click on the links below your ticker for code snippets and tips on how to use your tickers for different applications. You will also find lots more help and detailed instructions in the Help section.

Editing and updating your tickers: You can always come back and create another Daisypath ticker and if you create a free Daisypath account, you will be able to come back and edit your tickers, or get a new copy of your code snippet without having to create a new ticker.
