    Default Signatures - EVERYONE PLEASE READ

    Hopefully every member will have received an e-mail pointing them in the direction of this thread.

    Further to the recent forum upgrade, and as part of the continuing improvements currently being made, the way that the signatures are stored on the forum/linked to on other sites is being altered.

    If you are linking to an image on somewhere like Photobucket, scroll further down for details.

    If you are currently linking to a signature that you have uploaded to the forum Image Uploader then you need to do the following....

    1) If you haven't got a copy of your signature on your computer, you need to go to your signature, right click on it and then save the image to your hard disk.

    2) Go to your User CP and Edit Signature.....

    3) Delete the contents of the white text box containing your sig pic/link.

    4) Use option 2 to upload your signature.....



    5) Click on Save Signature. You will then see a box like this....



    6) Make sure you click on the Insert link and you will see this appear in the white text box above...



    7) You don't need to put anything in between the tags - just click on Save Signature again. If you wanted to have your sig linking to somewhere (like a showoffyourcar gallery) all you need to do is highlight the SIGPIC bits and then use the Insert Link button as normal.

    If you are linking to an image on somewhere like Photobucket, then you still need to do the following or your signature will no longer appear once we switch the settings.

    1) Go to your User CP and select Edit Signature

    2) Delete the contents of the white text box containing your sig pic/link.

    3) Use option 1 to point to the image wherever it's hosted.



    The signature has to fall within the restrictions for signatures on the site - i.e. 400x75 pixels max and under 50Kb.

    4) Click on Save Signature. You will then see a box like this....



    5) Make sure you click on the Insert link and you will see this appear in the white text box above...



    6) You don't need to put anything in between the tags - just click on Save Signature again. If you wanted to have your sig linking to somewhere (like a showoffyourcar gallery) all you need to do is highlight the SIGPIC bits and then use the Insert Link button as normal.


    The settings will be switched next week so please make the necessary adjustment as soon as you can.

    Many thanks.

    I've edited my original post as there was an extra step (Step 6 on the first bit, Step 5 on the second) that you need to do to then get it to appear in your posts.

    I don't know why, but I had it in my head that the allowed signature file size was 100kb. I'm sure my more recent signatures I've done for people are close to 100kb.

    If I have done one for you and it's over the 50kb limit send me a PM as I may still have the original design and I can tweak it for you. Or if I can assist anybody else, likewise!

    So, you can blame me for killing the bandwidth. 'I'll get me coat'.
