Putting A Signature On The Forum A tutorial on how to put a signature on here

Recommended Posts

Concidering it is a part of the rules that we put signatures in the signature portion instead of typing it every time you make a post, i made this to tel people how to put the signature up for people to see. It will automaticly be added to the end of every single post you make!

 

First Off you need to go to "My Controlls" which can be found in the top right hand side of the screen...

Once you are in your controlls look on the left hand side for "Edit Signature"

once you are there you should see a screen like this that shows your current signature for ex: mine

and it should show a box to put a signature in for ex: mine

Now to put the signature in all you need to do is type somthing in for example your name, or your name with fancy text all around it, or a small picture that does not take up a ton of space... on the page.. and according to the TOS the signature size can be no larger than

Maximum signature dimensions: 590 pixels wide, 125 pixels high

so i hope this helped! maybe this will give the mods a brake on warning users about using the signature option..

 

*note*this is ment for pretty much all Invision Power Boards..not PHPBB*note*

hmm i used to have alot of trouble trying to get signatures to work on my forums. i tryed going in to my php files to edit the html tags, the forums config to edit html tags and some other things i think. and then after i did that my signatures still still wudnt work in the signature section yet it would only work on my message.. i dont know why...weird if it works in my message why wouldnt it work in my signature? well after awhile after doing everything i thought could work i layed off it for awhile and then when i came back onto my forums my signature finally work..i dont know how or why its so stupid but it worked i guess it was all just in a matter of time for it to work

Great tutorial, it even supplies images! :blink:

You also should'a mentioned about aligning your signatures. Alignment in your signatures is really cool and is hard to find out just by researching it and stuff so you may wanna add that also. :lol:

[align=center]YOUR CENTERED SIGNATURE HERE[/align]
[align=right]YOUR RIGHT SIGNATURE HERE[/align]
