    Guide: Signatures- How to Create and Edit

    Hi,
    I was asked to make a guide for forum signatures...
    If you want me to add more or if something is incorrect just tell me :)


    Edit:


    1.Go to My Profile
    2.On the left hand side located under the My Settings > My profile > Edit Signature
    http://forum.egscans.com/profile.php?do=editsignature

    Signature Rules:

    1. Your signature cannot exceed more than than three lines.
    Note : Long text may be implicitly wrapped so it might not look like you went over 3 lines.

    2. Basic BB code is allowed meaning you can edit color, size, list, alignment, links...
    More on BB Code here! http://forum.egscans.com/showthread....-more?p=101559

    3. You can not upload an image for the signature just link to one. (see below)

    4. Allowed Image Filetypes: jpg, jpeg, png, gif

    5. Maximum size for pictures is 500 x 100 pixels.



    Adding Images:

    To add an image to you signature you need the [img] tags code :
    HTML Code:
    [img] Image URL HERE [/img]

    Alternative way:
    Tip from impertinent
    1. In your browser right click on the image.
    2. Select copy image.
    3. Then paste your image to your signature.


    Hide your signature:
    There is two ways in going in to this either using the spoiler tag code or changing your general settings.

    General settings:
    Note: You will not see anyone's signature including your own but it doesn't mean you removed it,. You simple will not see any signature.
    1. Go to My Profile
    2. On the left hand side located under the My Settings > My Account > General Settings
    3. Under Thread Display Options unchecked or check the Show Signatures


    Spoiler Tag code:
    HTML Code:
    [spoiler] Signature Here [/spoiler]

    You can also copy the image...
    to the Signature Box and paste it there... (it works for me.)

    is there a reason why images gain a black border when put in a signature?
    and is there a way to stop that? ^^;

    Simple answer yes and no...

    I tried removing the border too. But BB code doesn't seem to allow img attributes.
    The only way to fix it is to change the forum setting because image links are set to have a border.
    But that is something we as a user can not do it has to be an admin.
