    Default Uploading images, and adding a picture to your signature

    Signature Pics are limited to 200 pixels high x 500 Pixels wide.


    In User CP click edit signature
    In the box for option 1 Enter the URL for an Imageshack (or other hosting service) picture in the box.
    Click Save Signature
    The picture should be visible with a Brown Font Insert Signature Picture next to it
    Click Insert Signature Pic
    In the text box [*SIGPIC][/*SIGPIC] will appear (Minus the astericks I had to put in here). Click the insert Image icon, delete the HTTP:// and paste in the URL for your hosted pic.
    Click OK
    The picture now shows up in the Text Box as well
    Click Save Signature and all should work.





    It's tricky, but when you choose Insert Signature Picture, you still have to enter the URL for the picture (assuming it's hosted).
    Looks something like this:


    Sometimes the sig still doesn't show in a particular thread. In the thread where the signature is missing go to one of your posts.
    Choose edit
    Go Advanced
    Scroll down and select Show your Signature

    Default Uploading Images, hosting and you

    Hey everyone

    With an eye toward the future, we have put some serious restrictions on images that can be uploaded to the site. If too many get uploaded over the years we will either have to purge them or buy more space.

    I left the option open as a back up but everyone should try to get in the habit of hosting their images. All sorts of places will do it but a couple of good ones are.

    www.imageshack.us <--free

    www.photobucket.com <--also free but you have to register

    The image in my sig is hosted and I made it big to make sure we could accommodate whatever we needed.

    The hosting from either site should work perfectly on here.

    Its a two step process.

    After its hosted you have to...

    1. Upload it to your profile (I believe this is so you can choose between them easily.

    2. Put the sig tags in the white box in your sig with the URL inbetween.

    I merged the uploading images thread and the adding a pic to your sig thread, and left a 1 day expiring redirect on the other thread.
    There's one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it's one word long.. people. No matter how big the idea they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened. It's people that kill every revolution.

    Hosting is better for a given post too as it will allow the member to control the size.

    Yep, and our site has its very own hosting service for that very reason.

    the Gallery is a great thing you guys, all kinds of pics out there from all the members.

    You could easily spend the day in there like a museum. You can also leave comments on peoples photos

    I can't seem to do what it says at the first post here, that is, save the signature in the URL box for option 1. I know my image is small enough to fit (ie: 200x500 pixels) but it keeps saying "Error: remote file is too large"
