    My stuff> My account> My profile information and then {img} the photo you want to uses location {/img}

    Replace { & } with [ & ]

    Any problems, give me a shout.
     
  5. if you mean within the signature block...

    [​IMG]

    if you have an image best way is to host it on your own page ie.imageshack/photobucket etc
     
  6. Just send me your password, oh and bank details, and I'll sort it for you in a jiffy.

  14. Jib,

    Go here imageshack and hit the browse button.

    Search your machine for the file you want to upload.

    When you have found the file. Hit "host it" on the imageshack website.

    Once the site has uploaded your pic. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will have several options, link to forums etc etc.

    Right click to copy the top URL code..the one that says hotlinks for forums (1).

    Go to your account and click on my profile information.

    In the signature block near the bottom. Paste in the URL.

    Then Bob's yer fanny's aunt etc etc




    Cheers N_W.
     
  15. Being the mongest of computer mongs, I'll try to translate.

    I presume that the image is one that you've got on screen from an internet page (if not, I haven't got a clue).

    Right click on the image and select "Properties" in the box that comes up.

    Put your cursor at the beginning of the bit that starts "http", hold down the left button until you've selected everything that's beside the Address. Let go of the left button.

    Put the cursor over the newly-highlighted text, right click and select "Copy."

    Close the Properties window.

    Open your signature block editing page. Put the cursor where you want the image, right click and select "Paste."

    Move the cursor to the start of the bit you've just pasted and left click. Type [​IMG]

    Job's done.
