Have you seen all the great signatures and blinkies on iVillage and wonder how to get one of your own?
There are tons of blinkies online if you google "blinkies" and you can also browse through our blinky sharing thread http://messageboards.ivillage.com/n/mb/message.asp?webtag=iv-prcsplay&msg=2120.1&x=y
Then, once you have a signature or blinkies that you want to add, you'll need to follow these steps (copied from Signature Making For Beginners)
First, get yourself a hosting site for your siggy.
Just copying and pasting the siggy that the maker makes for you is using the maker's bandwidth and, although some makers are happy for you to do this, it's not as if getting your own hosting site is a problem. Most of them are free. Photobucket is a popular choice but there are many out there. To get a PB account, just go to photobucket dot com and sign up for one. As I said above - it’s free.
Next, download the siggy to your computer.
If you use a PC, right click on the image and save it to your computer.
If you use a Mac, either drag the siggy to your desktop or click command (on the keyboard) and click (on the mouse) to bring up the menu to save the image to your desktop.
Upload the siggy to your chosen hosting site.
If you use PB, click on the browse button and find the siggy from your computer. Click on open and then on upload.
Put the siggy into your settings.
Go into your board settings and scroll down to the personal signature box.
If you use a PC, check the "use your own HTML" box, then copy and paste the tag code from PB - the middle one - into the personal signature box. You MUST check the box BEFORE you paste the code in or it won’t work.
Click back to WYSIWYG and center the siggy if required.
Scroll down and click on submit. If you use a Mac, copy and paste the tag code into the personal signature box and check the "use your own HTML" box. You can do this before or after you paste the siggy code in.
If you want your siggy centred, type Thanks Ana for my falling flowers sig and Angie for the ice cream sig!!!
Scroll down and click on submit. Your siggy will now show up every time you post.
