    Since a lot of members have been asking lately how to insert signatures, avatars, and images I thought I would make a thread that explains this process:

    [size=18px]AVATARS:[/size]
    The easiest way to make an avatar is to find a pic on the net that you like. You need to have this image "hosted" by another site. Directly linking the URL for your avatar does not always work.

    First, I would go to www.photobucket.com or another free web hosting site, and sign up for a free account.
    You can then find a pic and upload it to photobucket. There it will be hosted. After it is hosted you can resize it to fit under your username without taking up half the screen.

    Second, once it is properly hosted you need to put the URL in the proper location in the avatar section of your profile: Link to off-site Avatar.
    It will look like: http://.somethinghere.com. The size has to be less than 100x100. But, I have been able to use a larger size for some reason.

    [size=18px]SIGNATURES:[/size]
    Find or create a pic and either host it or directly link the URL to your signature box in your profile.

    If you find a pick you like, here are the steps:
    1. Right click on the pic.
    2. Go to "Properties".
    3. Highlight the entire URL. (make sure you get it all).
    4. Right click again and choose "Copy".
    5. Go to the signature box in your profile.
    6. "Paste" that URL that you had copied and put it between these tags: [img][/img] There cannot be any spaces between the tags and the URL. It should look like this:

    ***Take note: Webby has been asking members to resize the sigs. The bigger the sig, the more bandwidth. The more bandwidth, the more $$$.

    [size=18px]IMAGES:[/size]
    To include images in your posts, it follows the same principles as the sig.

    Find an image you want to put in your post. Do the same steps as the sig, copy the URL and such, then past it in your post in between the tags [img][/img]. It will look like this:

    ***Note, some pics do not post to other sites for some reason. The best way to find out is after you compose your message with the pic, instead of clicking "Submit" click "Preview". If it does not show up, scrap it.

    I hope this helps some of you out. PM me if you have any questions.

    I did not have that option. But if webby wants it a sticky, we can move it to one.

    Yeah, put it as a sticky cuz I know that I wouldn't remember any of that info and when I finally attempt to put up a pick I wouldn't know what to do!!
