    I am not sure if this is the right place to ask, but here goes - how do i set up a signature on this forum? I searched and found the advice to take the cp link from the blue nav bar. I cannot find any blue nav bar, nor a link called cp. TIA

    First you click on My Profile at the top of the page.

    Then Click on Edit Community Profile.

    Scroll down to your forum signature and click edit signature text.[​IMG]

    Then type in what you want up to 5 lines, no images are allowed.

    Thanks Paul, but it does not work for me. I go into MY PROFILE and i have COMMUNITY PROFILE, RECENT ACTIVITY, MY ALBUMS and MY LISTS. Thats all that is there.

    John, Click on My Profile. Then scroll all the way down to the "Your Forum Signature" section There is a link to edit your signature just below this section. That should get you squared away.

    Well as I was typing this Berr-B-Q beat me to the submit button. :)

    Again, thanks Wingman, but that section does not show up in MY PROFILE.

    John, did you go into "my Profile" and then scroll down that page past your "recent activity" section and thn past your Albums section? It should be down there near the bottom of the page. It' not in edit profile. If you don't see it there then you should ask a moderator or admin.

    John, the link you need to click once you enter My Profile is the Edit Community Profile at the top right hand side.

    Then scroll down until you see your signature and click edit signature...

    You need to send a PM to one of the Admins, bmudd14474, Pineywoods or Dutch and have them check why you don't have it...

    I checked and everything is set correct and you should have access to it. I will dig a bit deeper.

    John-Z.. try it now.

    We have an automated spam filter and for some reason it flagged a few of your posts as spam. I set you as a trusted user so maybe that will fix the problem. Let me know if you are still having problems.

    It could also be a bug of some sort. I know there is a  problem with usernames that start or end with a space so maybe this is once of those types of things.

    I'm having the same problem John-Z did. I've only a few posts so far and I assumed that was the issue. If there's something that needs to be done, though, I'd like it done so I can add one.

    Thanks,

    I just found out that the signature edit feature becomes available when you have 10 posts. The best thing to do is just jump in and be active in the forum for a few hours or perhaps a day or two and the 10 posts will happen naturally.


    Flash.. I am not sure if the signatures will ever be exactly like vBulletin as far as being editable and able to load images. There are a few downsides to this in that, it takes up a ton of real estate and bandwidth but I can certainly see the benefit of allowing members to show a little of their personality.

    The best thing you guys and gals can do is to keep asking for it in the feedback forum and if enough folks want it I am sure it stands a great chance of getting on the to do list.
     
  18. I'm having the same issue as well....i don't have the option under my profile to create or edit a signature.  maybe a mod/admin can fix me up.  thanks.

    Nope, not yet. This is only my 5th post, though. I guess that's really the determinant factor. Thanks, though. I'm having a hard time finding topics to post on. I'm in research mode at this point, and this site is so full of good info that I find I don't have to post my questions. I just seek and I find!

    I've been researching ABTs, which I can't wait to try this weekend. I'll post results. That should help get the post count up.

    BTW Will I be able to post pics? Or do I need to hit a post count before I can do that, too?

    Thanks,
