This is where we hide the pictures. Forum Sigs are at the top, other pictures are at the bottom.
You can obtain the file path for any posted picture by Control-clicking on it (right-click on multibutton mice) and selecting "copy image URL to clipboard". The exact wording will vary by browser.
To post a picture on a forum page, use the [IMG] tag to enclose the file path, and end with the [/IMG] close tag.
To make the image a link to Team MacNN or to any other location or picture, further enclose the image inside [URL] tags.
To place an image in your MacNN Forums signature line, go to the "User Center" link near the top of every forum page. In your User Center page, click the "Edit Profile" link above your Private Messages table. You may have to log in before the board will let you reach these functions.
In your Edit Profile page, your signature section is a small window about halfway down. Use the small version of these sigs in MacNN Forums signatures, the large versions exceed the allowed signature size at MacNN. When you are finished editing your signature, click the "Submit Modifications" button near the bottom of the page. Your signature line will now appear in future posts. Existing posts will show the new signature line the next time the BB rerenders that thread.
Exact instructions for setting a signature on other bulletin boards will vary somewhat, but the basic steps are the same. Should anyone want to edit up a custom version, here are 24-bit PICT blanks. [Small 6K] [Large 14K]
Please do not use the Large versions as sigs in MacNN Forums. They exceed our allowed sig size.
