PLEASE NOTE: The gallery embed method does not work properly for placing images in signatures. You need to use the method as described below.


Adding your signature (and linking it if you wish) is quite easy!

1. First create your signature in whatever program you are using. I would suggest that you make your signature no higher than around 200 pixels. Width is not quite as important. If you make a signature too high it takes up a lot of vertical space in your posts. It's important to trim all the unnecessary space from around your signature. If you don't trim, your signature will appear a lot bigger than you think!
Upload it to our gallery (or another secure site if you wish).

2. At the top of the page click on your name and then click on signature in the pop-up box, as in the image below.

3. In the gallery right click on your image (I use Firefox and this may vary in other browsers) to get the IMAGE LOCATION address.
OR just copy the image link from the gallery - in the right hand column under your image.

Once you click on your signature you will see the editor (see image below). You can then use this editor to add your signature, either as plain text, or you can add a picture or a blinkie. If you are using plain text, just start typing in the box. You can have a combination of plain text and an image if you wish. Text can be linked in the usual way by highlighting the part of the text you want linked and then adding a link.

To add an image to your signature, see below.

4. You should now see your signature.

5. If you now click on the your signature to highlight it (see image below) you will see a pop-up with various options, including adding a link (to your gallery if you wish) and alignment options. After completing your preferred options (if any), go ahead and click SAVE and you are good to go!

6. If you are unsure how to get the link for your gallery see the two images below. You can use (A) OR if you prefer a view of your gallery without the sidebar information visible use (B)

Thank you sooo much! I will try this out when I get the chance! I like to change up my signature from time to time! You're the best! :-36
 
Hi Robyn.......I didn't have a problem with adding my last signature image but I can't seem to insert a new one! I've tried several times now and although it says that my image is loading nothing appears. :(

@dagi @Anne RE YOUR PROBLEM with INSERT IMAGE.

Yes, I know about this and it has been a problem since the software update. I have a guy looking into it.

If you are using Firefox it will work IF you refresh your browser after you get that' image loading thing' happening. I'm not sure about the other browsers though........I don't think it will work in Edge.

This is so FRUSTRATING to me, and to you as well I'm sure!

:-40

EDIT............this is a bug that is showing up on a few sites apparently. It will hopefully be fixed within the next 24 hours. Apparently it involves rebuilding one of the caches.......quite simple I'm told but way beyond my level of expertise! I'll let you know when all is okay again.

In the meantime Anne, I noticed your signature in the gallery and have put it in for you (via the admin backend). I've linked it to your gallery. I don't know if you wanted it centred or left alignment? But, you should be able to play with it yourself once this bug gets fixed.

It's a very pretty signature! ❤

Ev, love your gorgeous new siggy! Did you follow step 3 in Robyn's instructions above?
I would send a PM to @Robyn if you're not able to "get it right".

Hi I am new to posting, and I am getting a little lost. I made a signature and I think I managed to start an album in the gallery. Now if I follow the directions to add a signature, after a trial and error I managed to get the signature in, but the image is odd shaped, not like what appears in the gallery, what am I doing wrong, all help is much appreciated, once I get the hang of how to post, I am fine, it just takes me time to get the hang of it.:LOL: WOW I think I got it at least I hope so
