Ok... What's the deal with images in .sigs?
« on: January 02, 2010, 09:47:38 PM »
I've tried EVERYTHING... I have the images loaded to the wiki (and they show up with all the others).

(btw... i'm substituting curly braces for square ones, so you can see here what's going on...)
When I do ...

{url=http/whatever} {img=200x100} http://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/4/4c/Zorak_ONs_Offs.jpg {/img} {/url}

I get...

{img=200x100} http://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/4/4c/Zorak_ONs_Offs.jpg {/img}

displayed in the sig line, and it's clickable to the URL specified.  What gives???  What in the world am I just not getting?

I don't think you can resize it with BB tags.  Manually resize it, upload the new file to the wiki, then try it with just an {img} tag.

Actually, you can. :P

[img height=200]http://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/1/12/Duchess.png[/img]


Code: [Select]
[img width=150]http://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/1/12/Duchess.png[/img]
For demonstration purposes, you can also combine width and height:

Thanks - the resize works in the reply text here on the forums, but not in the .sig.  Manual resize worked, as you can see below :)   THANKS !!!!

I tested the image resize in my signature, and it works fine (as you can see from the grotesque image). Are you sure you did the code correctly?

Yeah... the resize does work, but the original, it appears, has to be within the legal limit :)

... I'm... not quite sure what you're talking about. I changed the image, and it still works fine, and mine was definitely outside of the legal limit.

Aha! I figured it out. The dimension limit is 500px. :-) I believe so long as your original is less than 500px on both sides, the resize works fine.
