First, to have it in your signature, it has to be loaded up on the internet somewhere. If you don't have a spot, you might want to register with www.imagestation.com . They allow remote linking.
Anyway to get it into your signature, click on the "user cp" button at the top of the page. Then click on "edit profile" and scroll down a bit - you'll see the area for signatures.
Once you're there, you take the address of the picture, for example www.sitewheremycatpictureis.com/mycatpicture.jpg and put the [img] tags around it... you need the [img] tag at the beginning of it, and the [/img] tag at the end of it. Make sure you have no spaces at all between the tags.
Also, if you do end up using www.imagestation.com you need to remove the ".orig.jpg" ending of the file name. It goofs up the remote linking.
It should work after you hit "submit modifications" then.
Thank you - it was scanned off a polaroid. I'm really going to have to get a digital camera. I still haven't managed to get the picture under my signature, though I have it posted at imagestation.com and yahoo.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have no idea what I've been doing wrong. I usually get one of the nieces or nephews to help me out with technical stuff. I did manage to personalize my avatar on a German forum myself, but that's about as far as I got.
At the moment his nose is out of joint because I'm at the computer and not chasing him around the house. Everybody here says "Felix" when they see him, but I think he's a bit more of a "Sylvester". Today he found a whole nest of baby mice in the compost heap - my husband just managed to save them.
