Default Using Banner Pictures as signatures guide

A lot of members have had trouble using banners or pictures for signatures there are a couple things you need to do to get it to work.

1. Go to the Edit Signature window, you can either find this under Quick Links Bar at the top or in your Profile.

2. You will see the usual text box, where you can put in text for your signature. Under that you will see a signature picture section.

3. In the signature picture section. You can either link to a picture URL or you can upload a file from your computer. If uploading from your computer click on "browse" and then find the picture you would want to upload. Click on "upload" when done.

4. Once you see a sample of the image in the Signature Picture section. Next to it should be "Delete Current Image" with a checkbox and also a link you can click that says "insert image"

5. The insert image places tags in the signature text box [SIGPIC] [/SIGPIC] these tags are required to display the image in your signature.

6. If the link "insert image" doesn't show up after you uploaded the image. Manually insert the tags [SIGPIC] [/SIGPIC] in the text box editor.

7. Save the signature there at the bottom and see if you see your image!

I think the problem lies less with knowing how to post them than the fact that the file size permitted is so tiny it leaves us with very limited options on what to post.

9.8 kb is so tiny, not to mention low quality images. Is there any way we can up it to at least around 25 kb or so?

No worries, I have mentioned this to the rest of the staff already. So we will look into this at some point.

The image is uploading and showing on my CP, but not in my signature. What am I doing wrong?

Did you add the tags [SIGPIC] [/SIGPIC] in the signature editor box? Add it there where you placed your text.
