I'm new to this message boarding...and I'm embarrassed to say that I don't know how to operate this dang thang....HELP???
I don't know how to do a signature that is different than the one below...(fancy, like you guys have....I'm jealous :trumpet: )
and any attempts that I have made to change font, size, or color...have failed...
it just prints font size or color--those words
I tried to download some other kinds of smilies....daaa....how does that work, and how do you insert them?
:thumbsup:
I'm interested in expanding my repertoire, and I'd be willing to bet there are other people that would like to have this knowledge.

When you use the color, font, and any of the tags, you have to close them, for them to work.
Examples:
[/B]
[/COLOR]
[/FONT]

You can either do this manually, or with "Close all Tags", up next to the "COLOR" window, where you compose your message.

You can go to the "Test and Scribbles" forum, at the bottom of the board, to practice. That's what it's there for. When you get it the way you like it, then you can put it in your sig.

If you need any more help, just holler.

noonytunes.. it also makes a difference what browser you use. Which one are you using? But tg1911 is right. You must close your tags to get the font size and colors to work.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

If you want to add a smiley. You must first save the image to your Hard Drive. Then you will need to up load it to a Photo Hosting Site. I use Photo Bucket Then you can link from there. If you have any question's, feel free to ask.

Hopefully this will help those of you who would like an easy way to create a personal signature.
This is a simple, free, online site that will allow you to do so.
On the home page click on > Render Logo.......... Which will bring u to >choose a style............. Click on the style of your choice............... Now the next page will open, where you will edit all choices........... Which are >Logo Text, Font, Text Color, Background Color, Background Texture, & File Format......... You will see (Edit) after each one............. Click Edit after each selection............. The first choice > Logo Text...... < Click on Edit ........ Then clear it and type in the name....... Then click> Set Text........ Next click> Edit after >Font ........ Choose your Font......... Click Set Text........ And so on and so forth. When you are done, click on > Render Logo. .........It will then Render (Create) your Signature........... Right click on finished logo and click on >save picture as. ......Clear box , then name it and then click> save............. For instance ( Scarlett_Sig._1.jpg )............. This will make it easy to find when you are ready to upload it to a Photo Hosting Site....
Link; Cool_Text


This is how I created my sig.
:thumbsup:

:thumbsup: :flowers: Noonytoons--You are right on--there are others who are anxiously are trying to learn--(me for instance)--about the "opening and closing tags"-- needed for changing fonts--That is HTML coding. I am busy learning basic HTML coding--about 2/3 the way thru a basic 9 lesson course (free-online) We/I can direct you to one of the better/free learning sites--it's not hard--it's hands on--making little web pages with all sorts of bizzzare fonts and colors!! What fun :trumpet: Click on Show All on the bottom of the Clickable Smilies box for a whole bunch more of them--just learned this 2 days ago--- :inlove: :cool:

Hi noonytunes

First let me say thanks for sticking around and becoming part of the community here.

Second, you're not the only one with these types of questions. I've actually learned something reading this thread and I've been a forum gypsy for a while. One of these days I would like to get up a tutorial on all the features of these type message boards and how to use them. There is a "BB Code Help" link in the left column when you are on the reply page, but it doesn't cover much.

However, what you are asking about signatures you'll need to learn a little about BB Code-which is sort of like HTML but different. This formats text into things like
bold, color and

Quoting text in a box.



Play around with it in Tests amd Scribbles--and you don't have to even go into you board Control Panel to test formatting. The code buttons work pretty much the same when you write out a reply and when editing your sig.

Check to see if everything is working like you want it by clicking the Preview Post button.

One easy way to learn is to see how others are formatting. If you see a post and wonder how that person did what he did, click on the "Quote" button at the top right of each post. Scroll down a little and you can see how that person used tags to achieve what they did. This won't work for signatures, just the posts themselves.

Have fun! :thumbsup:

The thing about people

is they change

when they walk away.--Mipso

Someone (on this post?) recently pointed out that any coded message tags must be closed out. Back when I was a newbie I tried to use these codes-but everytime failure!! I wasn't closing the tags--I had no clue. Then after about 6 lessons on HTML I got it. Before that I couldn't even spell jenius now I are one!!!! :flowers: :trumpet: :thumbsup:
