I don't know how the new set up works. I can tell you how I used to do it, if you are interested.

Re. your "avatar", when I first saw it all I could do was shake my head, and then it hit me...

That sign must have been written by pirates!

I think the sign in the avatar was from a Tea Party rally.

Re: the sign, I knew where it came from. I was being silly. Oh well.

Re: pic in siggy, have you tried using HTML?

Set picture alignment center, left or right

http://messageboards.ivillage.com" target='_blank'> Use to link image to another page or site. Change URL to desired web address.

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums.jpg"/> The source where your picture is housed.

Tags to "close" everything.

Remember to use quotation marks where indicated and the slash symbol to close or end commands as shown.

MM

P.S. I wasn't sure if you were familiar with HTML, but I thought I'd include the information for anyone who might be reading this thread.

Basically means also requires and

needs



There's a site where you can practice and preview that I sometimes use at

If you click "try it yourself" you get a practice page

Well I tried it, but it didn't work either, although I am not sure to put the alignment stuff and I still don't know what the "to close everything" is all about. Not very important, but now I am sort of curious about how to get it to work.

If you paste the above into the 'html' tab you will end up with a hyperlink to the iVillage Main Page...
