  • Ok so I'm not the only one here that isn't able to post sig pics!

    Can the Mods post a banner or something to let us all know when this issue has actually been resolved???

      My boxes are all checked but still no visible sig pic.

        Please look at posts #219, 223 and 224 on the previous page. For some reason, multi-quote isn't working.

        As Rastic said, it's on the list.

        • Tech team is working through the list. It'll take them a few days.

          Thanks for all the feedback.

            I used the same method as LM explains in post # 221.
            Works great and it's easy.
            After you wrap your url with img tags and hit "Save",
            it turns into SigPic
            Highlight each line, including your sig pic and hit "Center".
            We can only have 5 lines.

              Thanks AZ, I was hoping the actual screenshot I posted there might help others, but...not really so far. At least it shows tech elves there's no image button except for Rastic and the mods maybe?

              Fairy Godfather increased the character limit in the sig editor btw (thank you very much)!

                You are correct on this. The feature to upload an image as a sig is not enabled and would currently need to be hosted on an image sharing website. If we do get that feature back (I've asked) I suspect it will have limitations, i.e., images may have size and dimension limits.

                Actually, I hope we just keep it this way.
                If, like Rastic say, we have to use an image sharing service like before,
                we will lose all the high res images we can post now.
                Take for example your RIP Eddie Van Halen thread.
                Those images are awesome and really POP !!!
                I hope we don't have to use an image sharing service.
                We don't need no stinkin' image button !!!

                It's just a problem for sig pics anyway.
                Perhaps we could make a step by step tutorial and the Mods could put it in FAQ ?
                I'd really hate to lose the image quality we have now.
                I've been able to post some long tables from the CDC site that came out great,
                If they were uploaded through an image sharing service, none of the details would be visible.

                Thanks for the heads up on the character limit in the sig editor.
                It counts BB codes as characters so I was unable to do what I wanted,
                I'll work on that tomorrow.

                Thanks again LM !!!

                  Thanks pal!

                  The image button I'm referring to would be just like the one in the editor for regular posts. It simply makes the tags for people who don't want to type them or who don't understand basic BBCode.

                  I believe the old system had the option to upload images for both avatars and sigs OR the option to hotlink to images located elsewhere. I did the latter because I didn't like how the system reprocessed the image -it degraded quality. I never saw the option to upload images for regular posts though -those always had to be hot-linked from elsewhere, right? I imagine it will be the same in this new system.

                  My avatar still looks kind of rough and relatively blurry scaled down to 100x100 pixels -in contrast to how it was before. Are we going to have bigger ones, or size limits reestablished for the different ranks as before...I wonder? Is that possible?

                  • I have some outstanding items, but if they never got resolved, I would be fine as is.

                    Again, just my suggestion, if there are multiple outstanding issues/requests, I would use a project status approach, and list them on one page for us to refer to. It could just be comprised of :

                    ITEM / STATUS......perhaps to include a very brief description of the item itself. Status could simply say: being investigated, completed, or whatever suits.

                    This way we don't have to ask about older items (which is better for the mods as well), or read through all the posts. All in one place. Then this thread would become one for member discussion of in terms of tips on how to use, new items and nothing else.

                    Again, just a friendly suggestion.

                      Thanks for the idea but we are not going to maintain a public list.

                      Please take assurance that this thread is monitored and we are in communication with our tech team. When something is fixed we may or may not announce it, that is, some items are minor and likely not even noticed. Others, like sigs for example, may be announced when there is something to report.

                      • I was really hoping the update would include getting rid of the 50 sub forums nobody uses. Literally there’s some forums on here that nobody has posted in years, nobody is using them, let them die.

                        This place isn’t busy enough anymore to justify all the sub forums. Really there just needs to be 2 forums, “football related” and “non football related”

                            Yes, we had the option to hotlink, upload from device or just type in a wrapped url for avys and sigs.
                            I can't remember everything on the old text box, I always just typed in VIDEO or IMG wraps out of habit.

                            This new text box does have an image button on the top bar.
                            It's right between "Unlink" and "Insert Video", just to the left of the "Quote" tags.
                            I also noticed another one in the second bar just to the right of the "Tweet" and "Mention" wraps.
                            For my first attempt, I'm using the one in the top bar. (this is live time )

                            When you click on the "Image" button, an "Image Properties" box appears.
                            Just type in the url of your image into the top box (URL)
                            You have options to center and such.
                            For this attempt, I selected Alignment:None, Link Type: Default
                            I left everything else blank.


                            This is what I got:

                            • Now I'm going to try to upload an image using the box in the second row.
                              Clicked on it, same as "Image Properties' with top image box:
                              Here goes...

                                Yep, the Image buttons work in the text box, all you have to do is add the URL folks !!!
