How to add a signature below your posts

I posted this in another response to Stef (hope-rn2010), but thought that others may find it helpful as well.  I hope that it makes sense, let me know if you need more clarification or help.


Here's how to add a signature with a picture and your TTC history that will show up below each message you post...


After you are logged here, click on "board settings" in the bottom righthand corner of the Infertility Support banner above.  You will see a white box under "personal signature," that is where you can type what you would like to appear below your posts.  You can change the font, color, format, etc. as well.


In order to add a picture or any blinkies in your signature, you will need to set up a photo account online if you don't have one already.  The one I use is Photobucket. 


Copy the 'html code' from your photo account of the picture/blinkie you want.


Under the "personal signature" white box, click on "use your own HTML tags" and then paste the 'html code' into the white box.  Click on "use formatting tools (WYSIWYG)" and you will see your text and picture/blinkie.  You can move your picture/blinkie where you want by eithering pasting the code before, after or in between the text written or after you switch to "use formatting tools" you can click and drag the picture/blinkie into the spot you want after it's added.  To adjust the size of the picture, you can either resize it in your photo account before copying and pasting the html code or you can drag on of the corners to the size you want after it's added and you switch back to "use formatting tools."  You can also center the picture/blinkie by clicking on it when you are in "use formatting tools" and clicking the 'center justify' button above the white box.

Good idea, Grace!


I just wanted to add that if you would like to request a personal siggy of your own, than we have two boards for that:


Signature Showcase


Signature Making for Beginners


Both have requesting etiquette guidelines in the first folder on the board, and don't forget to thank your siggy maker!

Thanks Grace, I've been wanting to do that for a while. I can't seem to change the font and colour,though. Any suggestions?

After you type in everything try hilighting the words then picking the font/color you want. I find that works better then picking it before I type.

Hmmm.... There isn't a bar menu or anything to pick the font size, colour or type when I go to board settings and try to do that... I took my siggy and put it into micro word and changed the font etc and then cut and pasted it back in... I don't think it will work, but I'll try it anyway....
Thanks,
Heather

When you go to board settings right below where you would type in your signature there are two choices. Formatting Tools (WYSIWYG) and HTML tags. You want the formatting tools. Then you will see them appear right above where you would type. Hilight what you have written and you can change font and color that way.

Thanks Dixie - I wonder if it is my browser that won't show those tools or something. I've given up and just removed the signature since I can't seem to make it work. I'm pretty computer literate but the choices just aren't there... Oh well!

Hmm that stinks! Well ivillage is going to be updating itself soon and hopefully the changes being made will make it easier to add a fancy signature.

Thanks Melissa, Thanks Dixie,


I switched to a different computer and used Explorer and I was able to create a short signature at the end.... Thanks for your help!
