For people confused about how to upload their signatures.
 
I've noticed a lot of people are having trouble understanding how to upload their signatures. Hopefully these screenshots will clear up any confusion.

1. Upload your image to your own image hosting site, or if the person providing the signature says you can use the link from the one they posted, just right click on the picture and click "Copy Image URL.

If you have your own image saved to your computer, you will need to use a website to host your file to generate a link. I personally prefer imgur: the simple image sharer . It's easy, free, and you don't have to sign up or anything. If you want to use that site, here are screenshots on how to upload your image there and copy the link generated:

2. Go to your User CP.

3. Click Edit Signature.

4. Insert your image file in the first box. Do not use the second box to upload your siggy. After you've inserted the link, click "Save Signature."

I hope these are helpful! I know some people are getting really confused with which box they are supposed to use to upload their signature.

I almost wish I had a problem with mine....for those are extremely helpful! Bravo to you!

Very helpful! Though I'm not sure why its noted to NOT upload your photo directly as that could be easier for some people who know their computer but not how to navigate the net easily.
If you have the siggy pic already saved to your computer (as in, its not online somewhere with a link, but instead in a folder) I find it easier for some folks to just upload it directly in the Signature Picture area. Just thought I'd mention it; this tutorial is GREAT but some folks may be able to Upload their pic using the "Choose File" option that you mentioned not to use. =)

I'm sure he will read and try all this tomorrow

LittleGemma 06-17-2012 08:02 PM

Glad you girls like it!

Kat, I recommended not using the picture uploader because it will not upload the larger signatures like the ones most people create. It will tell you the file exceeds maximum size.

jesuschick 06-17-2012 08:09 PM

This is great!

Also helpful for posting pics into a thread. I wonder if some people wonder why their pics post as jpgs while other so us have our pics pop right up in the thread, no further clicking needed.

The only difference is the Insert image rather than insert link icon.

SIMPLE!!

LittleGemma 06-17-2012 08:16 PM

Thanks, Karen. :)

I also included steps now on how to use an image hosting site if you have your own picture file saved to your computer that you need to generate a link for.

missydawn 06-17-2012 08:47 PM

still trying

missydawn 06-17-2012 08:50 PM

Thought we had it

LittleGemma 06-17-2012 08:52 PM

You got it! :)

KayC 06-18-2012 04:59 AM

Caitlin Thank You for posting. I use photobucket myself. But what a great thread.

okchic 07-05-2012 01:25 AM

I am trying too! Even when I got my pic on Imgur, when I added the limk it just has the address, not the actual siggy!! I can't get it!!!

okchic 07-05-2012 01:26 AM

see, the link shows up under my post... :(

LittleGemma 07-05-2012 07:59 AM

Just remove that part. Not sure how you got that there. You're supposed to use the direct link from imgur, and then you need to click the icon the arrow is pointing to and paste that link into the box that pops up.

okchic 07-05-2012 10:55 PM

Ok, I am trying again. I did it like you said, Caitlin.. I have my fingers crossed!

okchic 07-05-2012 10:56 PM

Yayy! I finally got it to work!! Thanks to Ashley for the great new siggy! Thanks to Caitlin for helping me to get it posted! :)

LittleGemma 07-06-2012 12:55 AM

Yay! Ashley makes such nice siggies. And you're welcome! Glad I could help.

Aw, Caitlin, you are too sweet! Yours are beyond wonderful!!

LittleGemma 08-15-2012 09:03 PM

Bump so this doesn't get lost!

LittleGemma 10-26-2012 10:17 PM

Bumping this back to the main page. Could this possibly be stickied since people still use it?

pupluv168 11-11-2012 02:56 AM

Just bumping cause I know we have a ton of new members that may want to make siggys :)

Aquarius 04-17-2013 07:05 PM

Caitlin, this is wonderful, I don't know how we missed stickieing it - so it is now stickied :)

This would be INFINITELY simpler. Never understood why the website doesn't switch to this far simpler method for posting any pic.
