How do you get a pic in your signature?

Click on "Quick Links" in the top right part of the page, then "Edit Signature." Then add images/text just like you would for any other post.

It says to type in a URL. I want a pic off my computer.

Upload the image to a hosting site. I use my Skydrive account to host all my images. This site has a max size of 400W X 100H (in pixels.)

I mean like you have. A pic in your signature. It didn't work for me. It just showed a link in the signature.

You need to put the img tag around the direct link to the image. Will look something like this...

[.img.]http://www.imagehostsite.com/yourusername/yourpicture.jpg[./img.]

The img tags won't have the periods in there, just did that so it would show up.

Still can't get it. Comes up as a link.

The link has to be directly to the image, not the page the image is on.

Post what you're seeing so we can figure it out.

Not sure myself. Four years ago when I joined here I was told pictures could not be used in signatures and that made me happy. No one wants to scroll past endless pictures. Now there are forum rules with signature limitations that are often ignored until the Mods have to start yelling again.

Signatures: Font size no more than 2, max lines of 6 without image or if using an image, 3 lines max and image of no more than 460x60.

To also save on useless scrolling, your signature shows only in your first post in every thread. It is not repeated in each post.

PS You are already maxed out at 7 lines. (Blank spaces are a line, as well.)

I appriciate all the help. Thanks all! I was going to use a pic as my signature. My signature now isn't that long. I think that 5 or more might be a bit long. I only have 4. To me that's not much scolling. One narrow pic across the bottom is a short signature I think.

Ya know... that's a really odd size for the pic but it's good to know the exact limits. I could've sworn it was x 100 though... oh well. Most sites do 500x100 as it's sorta become a standard for vBulletin boards.

I just work here.
:ssmile:

We just try to keep things to a limit so our dialup and cell phone users aren't spending all their time scrolling.
