  1. Wuddup Guys! Gundred here.

    For the last couple of days, I've been seeing a lot of people asking how to implement their siggy.. So I've decided to give you a step by step tutorial on how to implement your Forum Signature.

    There are 2 siggy related questions that I would like to answer here.

    A.) You uploaded your OWN siggy and you just need to put it in your Forums Account but you don't know how..

    B.) Someone else made a siggy for you and you don't know how to use it.

    For people who have problems similar to Problem A:

    -----PART 1-----

    Step 1: Requirements

    [​IMG]

    You will first need to have an Image(.jpg, .gif etc) that you would like to use as a Forum Signature. You will then need an Image Hosting Website such as imageshack.com. This is where you will upload your siggy.

    Step 2: Uploading your siggy

    [​IMG]

    As you can see from the image above.. After clicking on the "Upload" button on the upper right side of the webpage, a pop up screen will appear. You can select the image you would like to upload by clicking on the "Browse & Upload" button on the upper right side of the pop up. Your upload will begin once you select your desired image.

    Step 3: The URL of your Siggy

    [​IMG]

    When you finish uploading your image, you should have something like the image above. And you will be given the direct link to your image.

    [​IMG]

    Click on the drop down list as shown above to reveal other link choices such as Direct, Forum, Alt Forum and HTML. Kindly, select Forum.

    Once you select "Forum" from the drop down list, you should have something like the image above.

    Then click on "Edit Signature".

    [​IMG]

    Copy and paste the URL of the image that we got in Step 3. Then click on "Preview Signature" to see what your siggy looks like. You can add texts such as IGN, Class, Status, etc. Whatever floats your boat. When you're happy with your siggy, click on "Save Signature".

    And Voila! You have a Forum Signature you can be proud of.
     
  3. For people who have problems similar to Problem B:

    Step 1: Getting the URL of your Siggy

    [​IMG]

    If someone else made a siggy for you, you can either ask him for the URL or just get the URL via right clicking on the siggy he posted and clicking on "Copy Image URL".

    Step 2: Setting your Siggy

    [​IMG]

    Go to the Edit Signature page like in my previous tutorial. And click on the Insert Image button as shown above. Then paste the URL of the image that we got in Step 1.

    [​IMG]

    You should have something like the image above. Click on the "Preview Signature" to check how your signature looks. Once you're happy with your siggy, Click on "Save Signature".

    [​IMG]

    You should have something like this. And Voila! You have an awesome siggy you can be proud of.

    Thanks for reading! Happy Gaming to all!
