Why is it that sometimes my countdown works and other times it is blank???
When the site you are linked to for your countdown ticker is partially or all shut down for maintenance, some or all of the ticker may be unavailable and hence blank.
Did the countdown part ever work? I see the date of departure shown, but I don’t see the countdown part. Other posters have the countdown working as I write this, so you may have edited out the required code when you created the ticker.
Duh, now I’m confused. Your ticker is working in another thread, but not in this one!
