How do I add my signature pic?

I think I figured out resizing mine, but it's not a normal picture shape.

That pic is 425x135. Do we want to limit the height to around 135 pixels then?

I'm just judging proportions... your sig currently looks like it has 7 lines and the limit is 8 lines (not sure if the image is considered a line), and the pic looks approximately equivalent to the text portion in height.

Regardless, here's a reference I found for standards:

From Macromedia's Flash Authoring Guidelines (width x height):

Wide skyscraper 160 x 600
Skyscraper 120 x 600
Half-page ad 300 x 600
Full banner 468 x 60
Half banner 234 x 60
Micro bar 88 x 31
Button 1 120 x 90
Button 2 120 x 60
Vertical banner 120 x 240
Square button 125 x 125
Leaderboard 728 x 90
Medium rectangle 300 x 250
Square pop-up 250 x 250
Vertical rectangle 240 x 400
Large rectangle 336 x 280
Rectangle 180 x 150
Looks like the closest standard to height would be Rectangle (180 x 150)?

I cropped mine out of a normal photo, I did that to try to just show the 4 cars.

I think the setting that just shows the signature on the first post was an option?

The "Signatures Only Shown Once" option is in the Preferences of your account settings...

Signatures Only Shown Once
No Yes
If this option is set to yes then signatures will only be displayed once per page.
Oddly enough, signatures do not show in the mobile version.

I tried the "Signature Only Shown Once" option and it didn't make any difference for me.

I also tried editing the extra.css file to limit sig pics but that apparently didn't make any difference either. :imnew:

EDIT: And did you know if you log out and view the forums, you don't see any signatures? Also any pics posted in the thread are just thumbnail size and if you try to click on it to enlarge it, you are required to log-in for that. Not complaining, just an observation.

I believe the "Signature Only Shown Once" feature is simply a remnant of the old software that was imported into the new software. It shows up as a custom field in the user preferences but I do not see any corresponding phrase syntax or style template associated with the field variable.

ok but maybe we have to do a forum wide update after a change like that. The old software had that too
