How do you feel about Signatures?
« on: December 08, 2016, 11:37:16 PM »
Setting up the Signature section of the forum and we have the option to have signatures.  We'll also need to set a max number of Characters (right now set at 300) and the max size of the images.  I have the max size of the images off while we test.  I've put a 120 x 800 signature in my profile.  I think Dan has a 281 x 1024 in his signature and Neil does not have one.

The text is pretty easy as it will not slow the site down, but images in the signatures will.  I like having them as an option for the members, but what max size do we want to set it at?  We have to have a max size to keep someone from linking to a monster image that will bring the site to a crawl.  Thoughts?  @303 Mopar  and @Chryco Psycho

I like the signature option too.  But I would like to see them minimized so they don't distract from the post, slow down the site, or make it so you have to scroll so much just to get through the thread.  Mine is way too big, but maybe even smaller than @Cuda Cody.

Lets try this setting.  The max is set to 600 wide x 135 tall.  Dan I resized your sig and my test sig is now 600 x 71.

How does that load on your end?  Pretty fast?

It loads much faster, and I think this is a perfect size!  It allows you to show you pic, does't distract from your post and still looks good

Can you make it so it automatically resizes it? I ask as I'm not that good on how to resize stuff, thinking others might find that feature benificial too, just like how when you post pictures it does it for you?

I can certainly help anyone size up some photo's  . . . I used to have a signature photo on the cc.com site long ago but once I became a mod, I felt like I was tooting my own horn too much and removed them.   Cool option for members . . .

@4cruzin I've loaded up a pic in the gallery to insert into my 392 swap thread but the pic is huge.  I tried to save it on my desktop as 600x450, then delete are resave in the gallery but no dice.  Any help would be appreciated as I would like to insert the pics within the text instead of just at the end of the post.

Here it is at 600 x 463 which keeps the aspect ratio the same.  I also lightened it a little . . .  :bigthumb:  Plus I made it a jpeg file . . .

Do you do this in the gallery or on your computer?  I'm not seeing the pic in your post when I quote it either.  Right now my pic is in the gallery and it looks like it is the right size but when I insert it in a thread it is huge.

I did it on my computer . . Then just posted it for you.  Save it from my post and then use it as you see fit!

Right hand click on the image in 4cruzin's post and "Save As" to save that image. 

The medium size image you see in the gallery is a smaller version of the larger version that was uploaded.  If you left hand mouse button click on it then it will go full scale image, but that is not what you want.  And all the links at the bottom of the gallery are to the large image.

IF you want to use the Medium image that is shown in the Gallery, then RIGHT hand click and "Copy Image Address" on the medium image and it will give you the link to the medium size.



Here it is at 600 x 463 which keeps the aspect ratio the same.  I also lightened it a little . . .  :bigthumb:  Plus I made it a jpeg file . . .

So once you copy the image address, paste that where you want the image to show in the text in your thread.  Correct?
