How do you embed a signature? Every time I have tried it does not take! Simple step by step instructions please, as I am going wrong somewhere, thanks

What are you trying to put in your signature? Just words? Images? Gifs?

go to "profile" on top menu, then "signature" (the 3rd menu item on top), then add a picture you want as your signature just like you would insert any picture on any normal post.

1. Click on profile
2. Click on signature
3. Click on the insert an image button on the toolbar (if your toolbar looks the same as mine it's the 19th button from the left)
4. Paste the URL for your image in the URL box (you can ignore the other boxes), and click insert.
5. Click preview if you want to check to see it or just click save.

If you don't know how to use the image button you can also do it manually, like this:

{img}http://img2.timeinc.net/ew/i/2012/11/15/Chris-Colfer_612x379.jpg{/img}

Just replace the { } signs with [ ] ones.

it works! very nice sig! but i suggest you center it. just add
{center} tag (close w/ {/center}) outside of your image tags. replace {} w/ [] of course.

Oops.  blinkk
I have no idea what you did there, lol.  Razz 


Okay, next try:
- Here is your signature the way you want it, centered an all.





Signature  Tumblr_mzeva9DFm91sch812o1_500


- Now put your computer mouse over my entire post to highlight it (so it turns blue), and copy (Ctrl C, or right click on your mouse to select "copy") and paste (Ctrl V, or right click on your mouse to select "paste") it in its entirety in your signature space.
- (Perhaps it's best to open another tab next to this one and put it on the page where you can change your signature.)
- Then carefully delete all my text.

- Or highlight just your signature to copy and paste only your signature, but you might accidentally not highlight the centered bit, as it is 'invisible'.

- If you know how to reveal only the text of a post (by pushing the button on the outer right of the tool bar above, the 'paper' shaped button), you can copy and paste only your signature even more easily.


It's worth a shot.  saispa

Thanks Marie let's see if it's worked this time! If not I will try it on the computer instead of this iPad, I think it has a will of its own.

Can you show us what you did and wat kind of pic (gif, jpg, png) you used? And also the size of the picture, that might make a difference too.

Maybe we can figure it out together that way.  neutre

I just tried to post the image in the thread and got the same results.

Signature  Kurt-Hummel-192002627

Perhaps the website hosting it doesn't allow their images to be linked? Try saving it to your computer, and saving it to another site?

^ u r right. they won't allow linking. makes sense because they want you to visit their website and not to pay for crazy bandwidth of someone else's web traffic.

so the solution is to download the image, then host it w/ a 3rd party image hosting site, such as www.tinypic.com
i use that service all the time. works like a charm and totally free. you don't even need to sign up for anything.

Editing my post to say I found where I could fix it on the back end, so I took care of updating it in your signature, though it is oversized on people's screens, it may need to be resized. I can't tell because I'm on a widescreen monitor.

when you upload picture onto tinypic.com's server, you have the option to resize/shrink it to whatever you want - but remember to always shrink, never to enlarge any pictures or you will get ugly fuzzy images.

Jelly's signature picture is about 650 pixels wide. i think that's the perfect width (close to max) you should set for your image.
