Hmm. That didn’t work. I’ll have to figure out what to do, but no time now.

I think you copied the wrong code, ABW. You have to get the one starting with a 'pointy bracket a herf'.

It's the second of the three options you need to copy over - I think it's labeled 'html code' or something like that - but not the BBCode or direct link one. Hope you get it sorted, and welcome to the group!

Welcome aboard and have a great reading year!

Thank you all, and welcome, but I’m still having difficulty. I’ve tried several times and each time only a blank comes up. Can anyone help? I will try typing below within regular parentheses exactly what it says I should type exactly as it appears (different lines, etc). Do I type the whole thing or are certain parts left out.? Note I was confused whether the X3IC was an I or the number one (1) and I’ve tried it both ways. Neither worked. Am I doomed to go without a ticker?

Hmm. Well that didn’t work either. Very frustrating. My next option is to get my regular computer. (I’m on iPad). Then I don’t know what.

Hi and welcome! I had trouble getting my ticker to show up correctly the first year I was here. You'll get it up and running before you know it. Happy New Year and Happy Reading!

Connie Thank You! and thank you all so much! I think the main problem was trying to do it on my iPad. Everything worked from the first go once I switched to my computer.

My goal is 36, which may seem ridiculously low since I have a TBR of over 2000. However, for the past 3 years I've been enamored of Libby with its bright and shiney new library books, so library books have formed the almost exclusive base of my reading in recent years. I need to get back to the old friends I thought well enough of to buy.

And to be fair, a large percentage of that 2000 are Kindle books which I am not as concerned about. I haven't decided yet whether I will consider Kindle reads part of my ROOTs challenge, since my goal is to be able to dispose of physical books.

We are moving to Florida in April/May from here in Seattle, and most of my physical books are already packed. However, I have about 100-150 physical TBRs on the shelf still, so I will have plenty to choose from.

So now to get reading!

ETA I'm sure I will need more computer help when it comes time to move my little butterfly!

ETA: welcome to the sunshine state!

You did it! Yeah!

Okay. To move your butterfly.

1. Click on once on your ticker with a rightclick. You can open your ticker on a new page
2. choose edit/update date & style
3. click on the little green dot next to "your current cumulative value"
4. Add the amount of books you like to add to your ticker. Say you finished one book. Add 1
5. Click 'Next'
6. Close the page were you edited the ticker on
7. Refresh your personal ROOT thread by pressing F5 or the refresh button on your screen.
