Dang, I can't win it again...

[edit] however, the count down I inserted doesn't seem to be, you know, counting down. Is it working for others, or do I need to hunt down another one?

@Huggs: Doesn't seem to be counting down, no. It's eternally stuck at 3 days, 22 hours, 9 minutes, and 56 seconds.

Does the site support adding in a widget like that? <-- (Has little knowledge of HTML)

I'm not sure! I had hoped that it being an image, it would work; but maybe not...

Will keep hunting. Still open for suggestions for a good embedded one! (*cough*Atalla*cough*)

Whoever programmed this version of vBulletin has it grabbing local copies of any remote image to prevent creating an unusual amount of requests to the foreign websites hosting them. Very considerate, very good form. But it also means that you get a cached version of the image as it was when RPGX first grabbed it - this is why those of us who upload images to our own source site and then link RPGX to them will often find that, if we do things in the wrong order and put the link before we've uploaded the image, RPGX will still show "image not found" even after we've uploaded it. It also means any algorithm-generated images - like countdown clocks - will forever be frozen at the second RPGX first loaded them in.

Hopefully that made sense. If not, let's just say no, images will never work.

Makes sense to me, both the reason the programmer did it and the reason it won't work. That's a real bummer though.

A link to a clock should work just fine though

Yes, it would. Like the Politics of Ur one up above.

For those looking, I seem to recall there being a difference between HTTP and HTTPS remote links. You may be able to get away with hotlinking over https, whereas http gets hosted locally to keep the https level of rpgx valid (you can't mix the two or you get messages about mixed content popping up).

Edit: and I'm too lazy and tired to look in detail right now.

makes sense, is a shame, but I guess we'll have to go without an embedded countdown, then.


[edit] Countdown Link!

Nope, the only one I've ever seen that works is the linked types. I'm a draftsman and working on project management - all this code mumbo jumbo goes over my head. I know what works and I use it.
