Signature issues

Mon Apr 26, 2010 3:07 pm

I have my keepership and forum food in my signature and they both have stopped showing up. Is there something new I have to do to have them show up on the new forum?

Thanks,

Di

I tried all of the above and still can't get a signature to work? Any suggestions? It just shows up as [img]http://i45.tinypic.com/j8ig5x.jpg[/ img] (without the space in the last image code)

It might be too long?

ETA: Yup, it's too long. The limit is 550 pixels.
Just use this. :)

Code: Select all

In the signature preview it will show up as being broken, but when you post it should show on one line. ( I break up images quite a bit for my signatures. It's a sneaky way to get past the rule.)

Thanks for trying, but it still doesn't work... Even small photos, like this one

aren't working... (just chose the Emily one as a test) You can see it shows up as text in my signature...

Rilla, I tried the Emily one and the error message was that it's too high: "Your images may only be up to 100 pixels high."

I can't change mine anymore. It always says whatever I want to change it to is too big. Even if that is actually exactly the same size as what is in there now.

Maybe they changed the rules recently, like the 100px height rule?

Yeah, I think so. I've encountered this on another site, too.

I tried smaller photos - nothing worked... Strange that I never got the message saying the image could only be 100 pixels high and 550 pixels wide when previewing it/submitting it... Tonight I resized images...etc...all under 100 by 550, like ya'll mentioned.. tried the one AvFan uploaded, etc...still couldn't get it to work right... Then I made one of my own, uploaded it...and it worked the first time. Weird...thanks for all the help. :)

That's really weird! I was able to put the one that I edited in my signature!

I wonder if it has a hard time reading urls from tinypic.com?

No, they did change the size. It doesn't allow the height it used to. And Tinypic does have a border around your photo that increases the size. You can get it down but it's the default.

Right, but I tested the image while everyone was still having problems and the image worked for me...

Which one? Yours? It's not as high as mine used to be. I tried to change it to other banners I had that were the same size as my old one and it won't change it to those anymore. I haven't had trouble changing it as long as the size is 100 pixels high or less.

Thanks, Hannah. :) I like your new one too! (but you knew I would... ~grin~) I like the combination of MM and Downton...

Kerissa, I don't think it was because I used tinypic, b/c I tried a bunch of random photos from various sites... Some too large, some under the limit... so it was confusing when it was working for you, but not for me, when some of the images were small enough. Maybe the forum was in a bad mood when I tried. ;)

Could be. :b It's kind of nice that the forum generally works properly for me now... after so many years of it not working for me it's nice to know that it doesn't really hate me too much. :b

I was testing the banner that Rilla wanted to use in her signature. :)

The Downton Abbey banner that AvFan made also worked for me.

No. :) I'm still waiting for my public library to buy it. Hopefully soon. But good thing is I'll have more episodes to watch at once like "Murdoch". Marathon time. :)

Weird, about the banner...

I hope your library will buy the series soon, HM!! :) Downton marathons are fun...once we started last year on Netflix, we couldn't stop watching. :)

I just had a "Huh? How did I end up with a Downton Abbey signature moment". :D :D

Okay, just got rid of it.

I remember I was testing it, but for some reason, I thought it removed it afterwards, LOL.
