    help on signature banner thingymajig

    Post by Schwenkdawg on 4/11/2009, 4:43 am

    hey ya'll

    I've got a cool banner thingy that I'd like to use as my signature saved on my computer, but i cant figure out for the life of me how to make it so i can use it from my comp instead of finding it on the internets (ive tried to find it, its impossible). i put this here mainly because i wasn't sure whether to put it on the sofa or in the computer lounge. Thanks!

    Well you have to go into your Profile (button on the menu under the forum banner)
    then to the right on the next page that pops up there will be blue tabs... one being "Signature" click on that.

    This is your signature panel.

    Ok you probably already knew that... your issue is that you want to upload an image rather than use a URL that already exists on the web. For that you have two options.
    Either you can get a image hosting account, like photobucket or just upload to something like imageshack and use the URL. The second option is to use your gallery space here (which I think maxes out at 10 MB).

    For the second option, go to your gallery (button on the left side of the bar under the forum banner) then you should see a page saying you don't have a category created.
    Below that there should be a button to go to Your Personal Album. Then click Create Personal Album after that. Go back to your personal album with the link on the next page that pops up.

    Now up in the right hand corner there should be a white button with some german on it. Yeah I know I'll have to fix that. IF you hover over it it says Upload Pic... so that's the upload button.

    Click on the upload pic button and then you'll have a few fields where you can describe the image or give it a gallery title. Towards the bottom there's a field for 'Upload a pic from your machine' and that's what you want for this instance.

    Once you are filled out as much as you want... hit save and return to your album page.
    Click on the image and it'll take you to a details page.

    Down in the details there's a field for "BBcode of the picture." Copy that line and paste it in your Profile / Signature box. You don't need to add the img tags because it already has them in the text you just copied. Save the signature box and you should be set.

    It may require you to post again once it's added in order to show up.
    Just FYI.

    Wee bit wide... but like the forum banner it's a resolution thing that somehow we're going to need to come to a consensus on.

    If you need someone to resize it sometime, I can do that.
