what am i doing wrong? help.
If you are using Village Photos, with a freebie account, part of your problem is that they are doing some maintenance and have cut off external linking for free accounts while that's going on. I know that because I wondered why my photos were not showing up and went to the site to find out. But I don't think that's all of it.
If that were the whole problem, you would see nothing except whatever text is in your sig block. What you have there is the closing half of the "tag" for the image, so I think you probably still have some work to do on setting your sig up.
What you should have in the sig block setup is something like this
(I've inserted spaces between the tags and the URL, so that it will all display in this message, but you should type it with no spaces.)
Then it should retrieve your picture properly. (If you're using a different image hosting site, the format will of course be the same, just a different URL, and getting the format right SHOULD fix the problem.
