Switching off signatures

Hi

Whilst I appreciate the time and effort people have put into creating the pictures which show at the bottom of each post I'd like to be able to switch them off. We obviously have a few very active posters and I'm constantly scrolling through pages of posts where the majority of content is peoples signature pictures. Sorry if I've offended anyone but I'm finding a bit distracting trying to find new pics of Joanna amongst all the pictures of Joanna (if you get my meaning)

Thanks Paul

Re: Avatars signature I don't kno what they are

Hi Paul,

I understand the fact that you find the signatures distracting, and I'm sure you're not the only one. It takes a while to get used to them, but once you do it is quite easy to navigate the boards. However, I'm afraid I don't know how you can switch them off, and if this is even possible (we're on a free board, not on a paid one so we don't have many fancy stuff on here). I'll look into it and let you know, but I fear there's not much I can do for you.

Go to the User Control Panel > Board Preferences > Edit Display Options. You can switch off both avatars and signatures.

Timeless seems to know things about the board that I don't, and I created it :lol: Thanks dear.

Ha, ha, you're very welcome. :lol: Just went clicking around in the settings, that's all. I suspect I'd have more problems doing all the fiddly bits in the background that you do, though. :hug:

Re: Avatars signature I don't kno what they are

Speaking of signatures, I noticed that someones signatures are much bigger than mine for example. I once tried to upload one that wasn't as "high" as Timeless's but it wouldn't let me. How comes that I have some restrictions and others doesn't seem to have them? It's confusing to me...

Re: Avatars signature I don't kno what they are

Hmm there are definitely restrictions though I don't know the exact measurements off the top of my head. Timeless' signature looks bigger because it's square I think, so I'm assuming that it's only just staying within the limits height-wise.

Re: Avatars signature I don't kno what they are

That's strange because the one I wanted to use wasn't much bigger than the one I have now. Hm. I might try it again some day.
