Re: Signature: Adding Colour, Bold, Italic and Underline

You can!!  The signature set up box on your "My Profile" page accepts HTML.  The only contraints are that signatures can be no more that 48 pixels high, and certain HTML tags are disabled for safety. 

My signature is set to: <strong><font face="Comic Sans MS" size="2" color="#ff0000">Allen</font></strong>

Which produces the Allen seen on all of my posts.

Don't know HTML?  Here is a secret workaround:  Click reply to any message in the forum.  Use the WYSIWYG editor to compose, but don't press submit post.  Instead click "Edit as HTML" above the editor window.  The edit window will now change from WYSIWYG to HTML and the contents will be converted for you.   Now hi-light and copy that HTML to your clipboard, and the paste it into the signature box on your profile.

FYI - No need for a test post to see what your signature looks like.  Your current signature appears on all posts that have been made in the past.   So to view your new signature, just find any one of your prior messages.

Is it just me, or does that seem complicated? 

Why can't you just maybe add the Icons on the Reply to Posts.

I am a bit confused: How do you add colour if it is not H.T.M.L.? I'll re-read this again and see.  Please answer Allen; thanks!

Please consider my suggest.  Thank you.

I think I know how he thinks it to make:

1. Click on any Reply (or New) button, and you will get the editor.

2. Edit the text and pictures so as you want your Signature.

3. Click on the 'Edit As HTML' button in the editor (first in the line like 'Quote Message')

4. Copy the content from the "changed editor" (it will change the text/"window" to HTML format)

5. Go to the Signature editor, and paste the content to it

6. Save and you will now have the colourized and designed signature

ps: I think it's a little bit complicated too... So you should add an editor for the Signature too, to make users easier to use it ;)

Re: Signature: Adding Colour, Bold, Italic and Underline

Thanks PapauZ,  The steps you provided are better than mine.  

Floating_Red (who is currently floating green ),  I don't know why there is not a WYSIWYG editor for the signature box, but there is not.    The signature box does accept HTML tags tho, which will let you add color/bold/font's etc.    I've learned a trick for quickly stringing together some HTML, and that trick is to use the forums own editor, steps for which have been better outlined by PapauZ than me.
