GIF in signature

Post by itoh on June 10th 2011, 12:52 am

Is there any way to put a GIF (animated) signature in the Signature in Profile?
If so, how would that be done?
I don't think we can upload GIF from our computer, but wonder if we could put it on ImageShack and then use one of their address in the Signature field in Admin?

Any solutions?

You have to host the GIF on a site that supports GIFs and then use the [IMG][/IMG] tags to include it in the sig.

http://imgur.com/ is the best site for GIFs. It is easy, GIFs work, and well organized. Imageshack doesn't support GIFs anymore unless you purchase a Pro account. Just host the GIF and then copy/paste the Direct Link into the [IMG][/IMG] field.

Thank you.
But how do we put the gif icon into the signature box in Profile?

I see the "Share It" on PhotoBucket has:

Share by email
Direct link for layout pages
HTML for websites & blogs
IMG for bulleting boards & forums
Flash for website & blogs

I tried putting the each one in the signature box but the gif does not show on the page.
I did put the link in the body of the thread and it did show. (as "[img]http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd250/....etc.)

But I wouldn't want to do that with every post. I wanted to input into the Signature Box so it would show automatically each time a thread was begun.

Does anyone have a suggestion (to my previous message) on how members of my forum can have a permanent signature included in each of their posts?
They have a gif (from PhotoBucket) that shows their (animated) signature.
Is there a way they can put that somewhere in their Profile so the signature would show (automatically) every time they post a message?

Please advise and thank you.

If they edit their preferences they can 'include their signature in every post'

What I need now is someplace I can get a FREE animated signaure made for the forum. I've seen one signature of a 'quill' writing the person's name. I would want something like that, but can't find a website that would create such a (free) animated signature. I don't want a large picture, icon, etc. I want my signature written out. Does anyone know of such a site where I could get something like that?
