Go into your profile, and where the sig field is, put this:


code:
[img ]http://www.yourwebspace.com/youraccountname/nameofimage.gif[/img]



You can use any kind of image format (i.e. not necessarily gif)

If you don't have webspace:

http://www.f2s.com
http://www.homestead.com

[i]note: if you copy and paste, make sure to delete the space after 'img' in the first image tag

Yes. You will obviously have to change the link so it points to your file. For example, suppose you registered at Homestead with the username elev8tor, and used a picture called "elevate.jpg", you would use this link between the image tags:

http://www.elev8tor.homestead.com/elevate.jpg


Don't forget the 'http://'
It's required for images.

It still isn't showing. The only reason you could see it is because it was in your browsers cache.

And yes, Geocities does have a policy that prhoibits off-site image osting, making it basically not work.

elev8tor_guy, go to http://www.brinkster.com and get an account there to host your image.

brinkster is too slow.

For just images, use homestead. They allow file linking.

Brinkster is only occasionally too slow to load an image like my sig fast enough. Like it matters... it's why our browsers all have caches.

LOL 2 minutes after i posted that tripod was good to use for image hosting, it stopped allowing external links to the image, hence they became like all the other hosts out there.

ouch.

and F2S.com isn't allowing any more member sign-ups. so you're only choice right now is http://www.homestead.com unless someone in this forums wants to post their host or a host that will allow external links and is fast. HEHE

Cool

Thanks buddy.

A good thing for me you didn't unsubscribe, huh?!

I like old threads in stead of many similar threads!

Now all I need is a better piece of graphics!!!
