Well, here I go agian...
In this How-To:
I will cover how to create a Signature, how to change the color of your text and how to add a Signature Picture.

For the Newbies; Until you have been a member for 15 days and have a post count of at least 75 posts. Your signature cannot be longer than 150 characters excluding BB code markup, you may only have up to 2 line(s) & no Signature Picture.

Now lets get to the fun stuff.
To create a signature, you will need to go to your User CP (User Control Panel)
You can find a link to the User CP , on the upper left side of any forum page, just under the forum banner.

Once you are in your User Control Panel, scroll down on the left side and click on "Edit Signature".

Now you will see the "Edit Signature" window. Type in the text you would like to display as your signature.

If you would like to change the color of your signature text, you will need to highlight the text you want to be a different color.

Then click on the "Color Palette" drop-down arrow. Click on the color you would like your text to be.

The text you highlighted is now the new color.
Note: This will work on any post you make, not just in your signature.

Continued in next post... Too many Pictures for 1 post.

Now lets up load a Picture to your signature. Here you have 2 options.

Option 1 - Enter the URL to the Image on Another Website. Type in the URL address, then click the "Upload" button.

Option 2 - Upload Image From Your Computer. To do this, click the "Browse" button.

When the "Choose file" window opens, find the picture you want to insert, click it once to highlight it, click the "Open" button.

Then click the "Upload" button.

If your upload was successful you will see your picture in the "Signature Picture" window.

Now you will need to scroll up to your "Edit Signature" window and click your mouse where you want your signature picture to be located.
Once the cursor is flashing in the correct spot, click on the "Insert Signature Picture" link.

It will look like this. Don't worry, it will be there when you preview or save your signature.

Lets have a look at how your signature will look. Scroll down and click on "Preview Signature".

Scroll back up and have a look.

If you are happy with your signature. Go back down and click on "Save Signature"

Pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Enjoy your new signature!
