With just a few simple steps you can automatically display a custom signature under all your posts here on forums. If you don't have a signature there are lots of talented sig artists that can be found here and many do stellar work for nominal fees. With many new friends joining the forums I thought it would be helpful.

--To start of course you need a forum account lol
Also going to need your custom sig. Most of the time the commissioned artist will post it on his/her shop thread or they can also pm the image for you to save to your device or send you a url code to use. Simply right click the image and "save as". Just be sure to keep tabs on where you saved the image for easy retrieval later.
Once logged in locate the FORUM ACTIONS tab 2nd row tool bar top center. Left click and select EDIT PROFILE.
At this point you should be in the profile editor. To the left is the MY SETTINGS section.

--Left click EDIT SIGNATURE.
Now you're in the sig editor.

88118

--Down below the text entry area you will see 2 options to "upload signature picture".
If you saved your sig file select option 2 to UPLOAD IMAGE FROM YOUR COMPUTER by clicking "browse". You will be prompted to select your sig from the storage on your device or comp. Select the image file and upload.
If your sig artist gave you a url you can select the first option and enter the url code here.

--At this point you should have the sig code displaying in your text box. Looking something like this but with the corresponding bracket replacing the parenthesis in coding. (SIGPIC)(/SIGPIC). You can select "preview post" to see it. If happy click SAVE SIGNATURE and you've got yourself a siggy. Some people prefer to have their sig centered under their posts. Add the center code before and after like so...(center)(SIGPIC)(/SIGPIC)(/center)

Thanks for reading, hope this helps. My first shot at a "tutorial" here so cut me some slack lol.

I guess I should edit in how to enter the text underneath like you have displaying igns/rank/guild/class basically anything that may not be featured in your sig. A work in progress I suppose but thanks for checking it out.

I havent tried it, but im kinda sure you Cannot change the size of your sig, the size of your sig when you create it IS the size of that sig permanantly

Else try this (i will be using "<" and ">" instead of the brackets, so this forum doesnt think im using BB code

<size= 3> <sigpic></sigpic></size>

If this doesnt work, sorry...

Hi guys thanks for the comments, I just looked at this for the first time in a while. The standard size for a sig is 500x100 pixels though various sizes and shapes will upload if the file size is acceptable. I noticed if i upload my sig from my tablet it appears bigger than of i upload from my pc, dont ask me y i dunno lol. And yes theres many sig artists here, perhaps post a looking for sig thread in general, offer say 25k. You'll get responses.
