- Upload Avatar from a URL : If you find the perfect image on a website, all you have to do is to copy the image's adress, and then paste it in the blank. Its width can be no greater than 140 pixels, the height no greater than 200 pixels. Beware of images wich are under copyright.

- Link to off-site Avatar : The same as before. The only difference is that the image's height and width can be greater than 140*200 pixels. Choose this option if the avatar you want is an animated gif.
Beware of images wich are under copyright.

- Select Avatar from gallery : You can also choose an image from the forum gallery, if you don't want to browse the web to find one.

::Signatures::



What is a Signature?

A signature is a quote or a picture which is displayed automatically at the bottom of our messages. This often shows a part of your personality.


How can I put a signature?

You have the choice to put a signature as soon as you register. In the registration form, there's a section where you can add a signature.

If you didn't put any signature when you registered, you can always add a signature later, but your account must first be activated. All you have to do is fill the signature field. After you filled up your sign field and saved, return to your profile edition form, click on the "Preferences" link just above the frame and then, make sure that you ticked "Yes" to the "Always attach my signature" option.


Can I put effects on my text?

Yes. To have your text in bold, italic, underlined, etc. or to center it or to make it scroll, you just use the BBCode, in the same way that you use them in your messages. For this, you will have a few buttons to have bold, italic of underlined text, or to insert a pic or a link.


Can I put a picture or a link in my signature?

As I said above, you can use BBCode for that.

The link, not surrounded by tags, becomes automatically active, but you can use the url tag to put a clickable word which leads to a webpage.

If you want to put a picture, it must first be hosted on an image host webiste. You can use Imageshack or another image host.

CAUTION : Only .JPG, .GIF or .PNG format are accepted!
The picture may be animated or not.

Once hosted, you just surround the picture's url by img tags like this

Code:
[img]URL of the picture[/img]



You can make it clickable by using this code :

Code:
[url=Webpage URL][img]Picture URL[/img][/url]


I have put a signature in my profile, but it doesn't appear in my messages! Why?

On the forum, when you add a signature in your profile for the first time and that you tick "Yes" to "Always attach my signature", it will appear ONLY in messages posted AFTER you added your signature in your profile. So, to make it appear in messages posted BEFORE, you must edit them one by one to tick "Attach my signature" just below the writing field.
