How to add a custom Signature to your profile

Postby Voodoo [OP] » Dec 02 2012, 2:02am

This is a little how to for the easiest way to add a custom Signature.
***FYI - You must have at least one approved post to be granted the "Signature" tab in your profile.***

Step 1



Locate the image you want to use. Images may come from a program outside such as Photobucket. However, I'm going to talk about an image that has already been uploaded to SS.com. When I do a siggy for someone, I have a folder named Siggy Request. So you'll want to navigate to where the image is. Left click on the image name...(Red Arrow in image below) That will open the file to full size....

Image

Step 2



You will locate the direct image URL (indicated by red arrow)....Left Click on this, highlighting the entire URL of the image. Once highlighted, right click and click COPY....

Image



Step 3



Go to the User Control Panel on the top right of the SS.com home page. Then, click the profile tab. Then click Edit Signature on the left side of the screen. When the white signature edit screen appears, you'll want to click the IMG field as indicated by red arrow. Then, right click between the brackets and paste the copied image URL in (indicated by blue arrow). Just be sure cursor is between center brackets when pasting. Click preview at the bottom of the screen to make sure everything worked, and Enjoy!!
