    Default Placeholder over placeholder

    Hi all! Newbie here but have been viewing these forums to find some helpful info for the last month. I am creating my first site for a swim club that I belong to and can't find the answer to my question anywhere. So here we go! I have a 4 image picture widget from the content catalog. I am trying to place a countdown timer from timeanddate.com. Pretty basic, but not looking for anything fancy. Anyway, I created my countdown clock, copied the code and put the placeholder where I wanted it. Initially the countdown clock appears, but as soon as the picture in the widget changes, so does the countdown clock. It then flashes for about a second before the picture changes again, and the clock then disappears again. How do I get the clock to permanently stay visible on top of the picture widget? Is it possible?

    Thanks for any help in advance!

    Welcome to Talk Graphics vtsweener.

    I have tried it using the cycle 1 image slider widget with a count down clock from timeanddate.com overlaid on top and it works fine.

    What slider widget are you using?

    I am using the nivo widget and I have tried every combo of layers but no luck. Maybe I will try a new widget.

    Thank you!

    Make both Placeholders sticky.
