Certificate code help

May 14, 2014

Hi all,

I'm struggling to make this certificate work.  I have used two pieces of code, one to pull the user's name from Storyline, and another to pull the date stamp.  

For some reason during some tweak, the name stopped displaying.

Also the Date appears to be stuck on May 3 ??

Any help would be fabulous!


Here is the code:

#wrapper {

margin: auto;

width: 960px;

border-style: solid;

border-width: 20px;

-moz-border-image: url(border.png) 27;

-webkit-border-image: url(border.png) 27;

-o-border-image: url(border.png) 27;

border-image: url(border.png) 27;


#results {

position: relative;

margin: auto;

height: 1200px;

width: 800px;


text-align: center;




h1 {

font-size: 3em;


h2 {

font-size: 2.5em;


h3 {

font-size: 2em;


p {

font-size: 1.35em;


#logo1 img {

float: left;

width: 190px;

margin-right: 30px;

margin-top: 30px;


#logo2 img {

float: left;

width: 580px;

margin-top: 30px;
