    I tried entering two countdown timers in my signature. Wouldn't allow me.

    Error says too many lines.

    I have seen two before.

    Thanks

    you have to manually edit the code a bit. I am not a programmer, but as I recall, you just need to tighten up the spacing between the two snippets of code. you can test it out in the dedicated countdown timer thread to be sure.

    Thanks :) its no big deal. It's just kinda fun I guess since I have never used it before.

    One at a time is fine.

    Yeah, it can be confusing. Once you have met the number of posts (I think it's 100), you get extra lines in your signature. I believe it's set to 3 lines maximum.

    Right now you have two lines in your signature. 1 - "I couldn't wait..." 2 - The timer.

    Are you trying to add a timer with another "tag line"? You should be able to put another timer without the text below the other timer. Just put it on a new line. Or you can put a < br > between the two sets of code.

    Or you can cut and paste the line from the the countdown timer page and PM it to me and I can set it up for you. :)

    Youre almost down to single digits too! Is it all the same trip? If so you won't be checking the countdown timer once the first one runs out anyways lol!

    the key is to put a space between the 2 timers, not a new line. put them both on the same line separated by a space. works every time.
