How to place a signature on this forum!
« on: Feb 18, 2011, 04:56 am »

A lot of people asked how they place a nice looking image or text underneath their posts.. and on each post. It's all really simple.
It's called a "Signature" and that's exactly what it is.. It's your autograph underneath a letter. For me, it's some artwork I have made and for others it's just a fancy car they like or a funny picture.. it can all differ in all sorts of ways.

But how do we get such an image or text in that little space/canvas on the forums. I'm gonna explain to everyone how to do it step by step!
Ok, here it goes!



Step 1:
What you first have to do is click on the Profile button, located underneath the banner and the Board Index. Click it and it will bring you to your User Profile area.



Step 2:
Once you're in the User Profile area, find the menu option Modify Profile -> Forum Profile.



Step 3:
Scroll down to the section titled "Signature". This is where you put your creativity into it. This is the part where you can choose whether you want text in it, an image or maybe both! But where to put it?? In the big text-area field where you can type anything.

If you have an image use the  IMG tags, otherwise your image link will just show up as a regular hyperlink.
Example:
Code: [Select]
[img]http://www.bruggenwirth-fotografie.nl/wndesigns/step1.jpg[/img]About more options on how to use text in this I would like to re-direct you to the BBCode manual:
http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Bulletin_board_code. This is a more in-depth focus on what you can do with special codes to make your text look more sexy.



Step 5:
Last but not least... because this is the most important step towards your signature. You have to click the "Change Profile" button in order to save what you have done. You can ALWAYS edit a signature so customizations aren't required to be immense cool looking in one time!

If you have any question regarding this topic.. PM, PSN me or just reply on this thread!

Cheers for taking the time to post that, I'll make it a sticky so that it's always here.    :D

Also, just one point to add, please don't make MASSIVE graphics or lots of text for signatures as it takes up screen space that is more useful for actual posts... I personally hate having to scroll past lots of big signatures to read a topic.

As a guideline, Bruggen's signature is ideal size.... around 400x150 pixels.

So, please exercise some thought for all the forum users... any offending oversize signatures will be deleted.    ;D

Just thought this would be appropriate in here too:

Great site that helps you make a bad ass signature.  I'm sure there's better ones, but are they free?  I don't know.  This one is though.  :D
