If you don't have a server of your own to put the image on and then point to:

go to your UserCP / edit signature

click in the box to put the cursor where you want the image

now, look for the button that looks like a yellow sky with grey mountains and click it (it's the "insert image" button)

in the spot that pops up, type this....
ht-tp://64.78.40.57/rkw/sos-contributor.jpg
...but without that dash between the 'Ts' at the beginning

click ok and save your sig. That should do it.

PS -- if you like, while you're in the sig-editor, hilight the image itself, click on the globe (insert link) button, and put in www dot storiesofstrength dot com to make the image a clickable link to the site.

Ray's da man. It's a perfect size and evokes the cover beautifully.

Did you use the image icon (looks like a mountain with a moon) or the link icon (looks like earth with a chain-link)?

Nice. I copied it into my webfiles and added it to my sig in some other forums. Might make a few people curious.

My siggie here is pretty big already. :)

That's better. Thanks to Chunky for the lesson, and Ray for working up the badge, just for me. Bats eyelashes.

Very nice, thanks! I'll use it on other boards, too, to generate interest.

Lovely, Ray! I'm using it on my website as a 'button' right now linking to the stories of strength website, but it's small and down where you'd have to scroll to see it. Right now I have an animated banner at the top of my page for Red Cross dontations, it would be nice to put a Stories of Strength banner there as well, but the little one you provide gets all pixellated at a larger size - (the banner I currently have is 60 high and 468 long) Any way you could scale it up?

This is actually a scaled down version. Just let me know what you need and I'll get you something.

Interesting that I see extra space for your posts but I don't see the graphic. i see the templates that Ray posted but nthing in everyone's siggy.
I thought it might be my home computer since I run parallel programs but its the same here at work.

Am I the only one?

ChunkyC
10-07-2005, 07:18 PM
I can't see why that would be, Mike. Especially if you can see the pic in your own sig. Velly odd.

The dumb question: refresh? I'm sure you have, just gotta ask. With that out of the way, the only thing I know of is under Edit Options in your UserCP. Under Thread Display Options you can turn Show images on and off, but if you can see your sig image, then it's on and you should be able to see everyone else's.

Weird weird weird.

Yuphttp://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif That's a bummer, 'cause they look awesome!! Maybe it's that parallel universe thing??

ahem....er..say, why don't I go check to see if my "show signature" box is checked. Maybe that's it.

Made a button that matches those 85x15 buttons that many bloggers have. Could not fit the entire Stories of Strength even without the flower... so this was the best I could do. You have permission to steal it.
