Signatures

Hi,
We have changed the way Signatures work.
We no longer allow the [img] Tags or HTML code in signatures.

The reason for this is we are seeing a massive increase of external linked images, this is bad news for the speed of this site because when you view a post you have to wait until the external site delivers the image, if this external site is slow then it slows our site down too.

To add an image to your signature you can now upload an image to our server using the Edit Signature option in UserCP
1. Click Edit Signature in your UserCP
2. In the Signature Picture section use Option 1 or Option 2 to select an image.
3. Click Save Signature
4. Click Insert Signature Picture, this will add [sigpic] [/sigpic] tags in the signature message box. The picture will only appear when these tags are present in the signature.
5. click Save Signature

If you have lost your image and your current signature just shows a URL to the picture then just paste that URL into Option 1 of the above instructions.



You can delete and change your Sig image at anytime as many times as you wish.

Apologies for the inconvienance of having to edit your signature, but I can assure you it is in the interest of keeping this site running smoothly for all members.

Signature Size Limits:
Regular Members = 450 wide x 150 high and 25Kb
DIBB AP Holders = 450 wide x 200 high and 50Kb

Regards
Stu

That means you are using a code that can't be used in signatures
You will get that if you try and use [img] or [url] tags, for example.

The message is telling you exactly what the problem is. You can not link to external sites in your signature.
I'm guessing you are trying to link to a site or graphic located on another website.

Hi,
You need to follow the instructions in the first post

If you use option one then the address you enter must be the address to the picture that is already on a website not on your computer.

If you use option 2 then just click browse and select the picture from your computer.

If your picture exceeds the size limits then it will not work.
