You will need to have it hosted on a sight then linked.

Goto My Space - then Profile, and put the http address of the signature picture. For example:
IMG <---bracket with [] http://www.yoursite.com/yourdirectory/yourpic.jpg /IMG<---bracket /IMG with []


And the limits for the pic are:
- 400*200 maximum picture size
- 30k maximum maximum file size

It has to be linked from another
location. Look at the tools button on the forum's toolbar, and select "help". It will tell you exactly. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

So, the pic needs to be from a website? Not from a file in my PC? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Correct, it must be loaded on the internet at a site to be linked.
This forum does not host personal signature pictures.

Thanks for replaying guys, but I already went to my profile and entered a link to a pic, but all I see on my sig now is only the web address instead of the actual picture.
I know I'm doing something wrong, what is it? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

ensure you use IMG at the start bracketed by [] and /IMG at the end bracketed by []. Also, linking to a site like google may not work. Try and find a site that will "host" your picture.

I've been trying to get my sig working but I just get the white box with red cross. When I right click on it and click "view image" it magically appears and stays there, but how do I get it to automatically appear in the first place? I'm using Geocities to store my sig.

Geocities don't permit remote linking of files with image file extensions.

Also, if you change the extension from .gif to .txt it will link.
