Do their forums allow javascript?

If not, you could always try using flash.

They do allow for javascript. Would flash be easier? (i'm ignorant when it comes to coding):frown:

I would probably do it in flash. I am not sure if you could say either is easier: It is a matter of whether or not you know what you are doing. Flash would give you a little more control of the looks, imo, and you could add some other cool stuff if you wanted to.

Ok, i've found quite a few so far, but none work as expected. There HAS to be a simpler way to do it. For instance, 4-6 lines of code rather than 200-1,000.

no fancy border or texturing or anything. just a counter with "days, hours, min, seconds." thats it.

thankyou for the help btw.

Yeah that is another reason why I was thinking flash would be easier. Mainly because most forums have a limit on the number of characters in a signature.

I saw this one that had roughly 40ish lines, not sure about the characters though.
