the Harry Potter Countdown ticker: get it for your blog

I stole it from ruhi‘s blog here, so it seems only fair that you steal it from me. If you scroll down in my blog you’ll see it in my sidebar just under the Categories list, and very nice-looking it is, too, if a bit fat for a Dusk template sidebar. Don’t ask me how you design it, I just copied the code. You do the same, and paste it into a text widget, and Dumbledore‘s your uncle!

The code:

<a href="http://www.TickerFactory.com/">
<img border="0" src="http://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt/d/

4;10742;430/st/20070721/e/HP+Book+7%21/dt/-1/k/4080/s-event.png"></a>

Now, like I said just copy that code, remove the Enter after the d/ so that that part is all one one line, stick it in a text widget, drop that into your sidebar and it’ll work for you. Note that the printing is black, which can be hard to see, like here. You can make your own customized version at www.tickerfactory.com and set whatever colour you like.

Now I shall turn my attention to supervising the Versace Twins‘ production of badges for the Harry Potter Challenge! To work, slaves!

  1. Ah, thanks! When I saw that I knew I had to steal it. I’m too lazy to play with it now, I’ll do it tomorrow. Actually, this is the first ticker I’ve seen that works in WP.com, a very useful thing!
