Hi ... I've copied the HTML code that countdownclock.org gives, but it doesn't work. When viewing the page, there's a blank, and when editing the page, I get the "FLASH" logo ... can you help?


quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="300" height="200"
name="countdown" align="middle" wmode="transparent"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">embed>
target="_blank">COUNTDOWNCLOCK

Hi ... I pasted the same looking clock from pageplugins.com, and it worked!

I'm not sure what's up with countdownclock.org lately, but I'm glad you got the other one working. Your clock code sure blew out our forums quite nicely. Smile

I had the same problem with the countdown clock a few days ago. It won't show up on the page after I am out of the edit mode, unless it's a blank box with Flash on it. In the past I've been successful getting it on the page but it never stays more than a week or two, then it mysteriously disappears. Any suggestions?

Additionally, I've been trying to get an answer as to why I no longer have the additional colors when I click the button to get more than the usual pallet in the edit mode. What's up with that? Frustrating...

Thanks,
Retha

Hey gang, I just posted a countdown clock on my website. I had read about all the problems with countdownclock.org, and I really didn't like the design of their clocks anyway.... but I found a nice, clean design at http://mycountdown.org/Special_Day/Reunion/

When I click "More Colors" I'm seeing more colors like I'm supposed to. Is that not working for you? Note, there are millions of possible colors. If you happen to have any photo editing or drawing program all of them display the 6 character color code that you can copy and paste into our editor (i.e. you can enter literally millions of color values and thus get the exact color you want).

Hi Brad ... you say I "blew out the forum" ... should I not have pasted the HTML code? If I wasn't following proper etiquette, I apoligize.

Nah, it's fine. One some really long lines with no spaces it helps to just press the enter key so the page doesn't blow out. Happens frequently when people paste embed code, no biggie.

Gotcha. I should know better. I'm in the IT business.

Overall, a great site Brad. I'm thoroughly enjoying putting up our site, and I'm getting all sorts of kudos from my classmates. Three weeks ago, one member of my class sait to another that "Fred would never get our reunion organized" ... now look; three weeks later!

I really found it usefull to have references to third party "addons" that behave nicely and enhance our sites.

Your ClassCreator project is great, regardless of price. With reference to the cost, it's outstanding! And I don't throw praise around too easily. And, being in the IT business (I've paid $1000s for support from CISCO, IBM, etc.) I know your email support is very fast and informative.

Thanks.
