    Could someone please direct me in the right direction to learn how to modify my sig line.

    I thought I had it figured out by looking at the source code and placing code in the correct place at the start and end of each line.

    This is what I made my source code look like but when I save it, it reverts back to my old sig, even tho preview looks right.

    Does anyone see where I went wrong?

    I'm looking at your sig line, and it seems ok considering that we ae allowed 5 lines, and anything beyond that will probably run together and/or truncate. I'm trying to help you, so I might need a little more detail.

    I apolagize richoso,

    I could swear that I read a post tonight speaking of inserting pics in the sig line and I thought it said up to 15 lines of text inthe sig.

    I could also be totally wrong man. I'm gona play with it and see what I can do.  

    Thanks for the quick reply

    Right now pics cant be put into the sig lines. I know we are working with Huddler to get this changed.

    right now.. or at least until they change it, the signature line will not accept images. We are allowed 5 lines of text that can be bolded, italicized or made into links

    If anyone needs help with their signatures, just let me know but basically you can click on edit signature in your profile and use the following codes to use these features:

    bolded text: <b>bolded text here</b>

    italicized text: <i>Italicized text here</i>

    Wherever you want  a line break just do this at the end of the line: <br />

    Links are made the same way as in normal posts, in regular mode (not in source mode) highlight it and click the link icon.

    Here is the source code for my signature to show you what I did and how I did it to make it look the way it does. After I put this in, I highlighted the text in regular mode that I wanted to be a link, clicked on the link icon, and typed in the desired URL to make it a link:

    Scott, go to the edit sig section and then copy this.

    Click the source tab again and then preview. You may have to redo your links, I am not sure. If you have to redo the links you have to do that from the screen that does not have the 5 tabs grayed out.

    Scott if you have trouble send me a PM and I will try to help.

    LOL duck its just a good front!!

    I read what saw was trying to enter and it looked like it should work. Well it was one of those things that bugged me so I had to copy it and paste it into my own sig to see why it didnt work. Sometimes the easy things are the hardest ones to figure out.

    Glad it worked Saw,

    Did you have to redo the links or did they work after you did the copy and paste? Just curious.
