Hi sezzy, i think you need a certain number of posts before you are allowed to add a pic. There is sticky at the top of this forum which has loads of useful info about the site and how to use it. It really is easy to use once you get used to it.
Re your ticker. If you just click on it and type the password you created for it when you made it you will be able to edit your current weight and it will come up on the page itself you dont even have to add any codes.
