When you place a url in your sig box you must put open square bracket IMG close square bracket then picture url open square bracket forward slash IMG close square bracket... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Spits rock http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Sam, the pic breaks the size restrictions and I suspect the mods may complain about it.

If you like, I could resize the image to the max allowed and host the pic for you ? I have shedloads of spare webspace at the mo and I'm currently nursing a download so have time to kill...

Yep http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

500x200 max please, banner style. The Rules of Conduct sticky is missing in action at the moment, but the sig test thread still has sig size limits posted in it last time I looked.

See, pesky mods http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If you like, the resized image - 288 pixels wide by 200 high - is sat at _http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/ilsigs/spitfire.jpg_ (minus the underscores)

Feel free to drop the url above between the _picture url _ part of your sig.

Thanks a lot for the resizing Moo.Cow, very nice of you. I had a feeling it might be to big, butt I don't have webspace so I can't resize it myself. Luckely there are enough friendly people to help me out ay!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

PS: First time I ever broke a forum rule, small one, but still a rule nevertheless. I'm very very sorry http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
