Confusion [Adding Images to Sigs]

Yeah - I am totally lost. I clicked the "add image" uploaded it like 7 times and nothing came up, :no:
can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong? If I am even supposed to be doing that to put an image in a signature? lol

(I apologize if this has been posted elsewhere - I looked but couldn't find anything that wasn't locked.)

Thanks and sorry for being annoying, :happy:

Re: Confusion [Adding Images to Sigs]

We don't tend to upload signatures to this forum, just link an offsite image hosted elsewhere. Just go User control panel>profile>edit signature, and enter the url for the image in between the [ img ][ /img ] tags (remove the spaces). You should be good to go. :grin:

Dah. I am so confused - all it's doing is showing up with a link?

Re: Confusion [Adding Images to Sigs]

It would be best to upload your picture somewhere, I'd use photobucket.com. Once you've uploaded your signature there, copy the link that's designed for using on forums, and paste it into the 'edit signature' box. That should work :yes:

Did you stick it between the "img" tags?

Philippa is right - you need to upload your signature to an external site first. You can use Photobucket but if you don't have an account: try ImageShack. Copy paste the right url (the one with the IMG and the brackets) and paste it onto your profile page. Don't forget to hit 'save' when you're done!

That should do the trick :yes:

Re: Confusion [Adding Images to Sigs]

I used them, it said it cannot find the size of the image or something like that - I'll figure it out!! It's all good.

Great signature. And by the way, I had the same problems with mine when I signed onto this forum. :wink:

Re: Confusion [Adding Images to Sigs]

Hello. It's me...couldn't log on with the different user. What are the "pixels" allowed for signatures? I can't seem to find it. (I am sorry, I'm trying to do this very quickly to catch up on what I've missed. If it's at the help desk, which is where I looked I apologize!) Thanks!

EDIT: Nevermind found it!! Sorry!

Don't be sorry. I found out that you can always ask here if you have a problem with the forum handling. I had to learn a lot when I first came here (I'm an older semester :lmao: ) and everyone was very nice and helpful here!
