Embedding pictures in signature
« on: June 29, 2010, 12:39:37 PM »
I am trying to embed this picture with a link on my signature with this code:
Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.bhelannia.com][img]http://i227.photobucket.com/albums/dd48/lagrimas_vivas/btn.gif[/img][/url]
Everytime I hit the 'change profile' button, it just deletes the [*img][/img] brackets and everything in between. Any help would be appreciated.

I will add the code of my signature in case it is relevant.
Code: [Select]

All images in a signature have to be uploaded to the E-Wiki, otherwise they won't show up. It saves on bandwidth and loading times.

This is a PM I often send to people that would like the steps:

In order to embed images in your signature, you need to follow a few steps. They are relatively easy, but must all be followed. Here they are:

Step 1: Image

The best images for a signature are no larger than 100 pixels in height. Any images larger than this will require a scroll bar. You need to add the text to the image yourself using a graphic design program. If you aren't sure how to do this, let me know and I can help you. You should keep your images with the same decency as your avatar image. Signatures are public and can be viewed by unapproved people.

The image must be uploaded through the Elluiki. Pay careful attention to the categorizing of images. The site provides you with all the necessary steps to uploading an image.

Keep the Elluiki open in a tab or browser window, you'll need the image link later.

Step 2: Thread

You can link any threads to your signature, but the most common are Ons/Offs, Apologies/Absences, and Characters/Stories. You need to find which thread you'd like to link for an image.

To create an on/offs thread, visit the appropriate board for either Lords, Ladies, or Lieges. Start a new thread and list your ons and offs. Check out those listed to get some examples.

Keep this thread open in a tab or browser window, you'll need the thread link later.

Step 3: Profile

Open a new tab or browser window and visit your forum profile. In the bottom of the forum profile you'll find a text box for the signature. In the signature profile enter the following code.

NOTE: You need to remove the 3 * and enter your link information where noted.

[center*][url*=your_thread_link][img*]http://your_elluiki_image_link[/img][/url][/center]

When you've entered the information, click "Change Profile."

Test it by viewing it in an active thread.

Don't trust your profile page for the height of the signature, it is not the same height as the actual signature. You might see a scrolling bar in your profile, but if you used the 100 pixel high image, you won't see this in the normal threads.
