ANSWERED Editing my forum signature

Recommended Posts

Sorry for such a basic question. When I first joined this forum, I added the signature you see below. It is now quite out of date and I'd like to edit it. But I can't find where to do this. I've gone to my profile and tried "Edit Profile," but that seems to have nothing to do with this signature. Thanks for anyone who can point me to the right place.

Thanks, DTLow! I actually tried that earlier, and I swear that "Signature" was not present there. But it's fixed now.

I am having the same trouble - I don't see signature listed when I follow the directions listed above.

There was a signature under this post and I changed the tool to right to not display and now it has disappeared - not ability to add or remove it - poof!

Please advise.

I'm not planning on adding a signature, but out of curiosity I checked to see if I saw this or not.  I did but more importantly I discovered the setting where you turn off view signatures.  Woohoo!  Not that I have anything against anyone's signature but I do grow tired of seeing them in every post so thanks for leading me to discover this.

I looked again and can't see where signature is supposed to be according to the above posts - this is what I see:

Yes, that is where it shows for me.  Maybe the option appears after a certain number of posts?  Some profile customization does appear after you reach 300 but I didn't think the signature block was withheld until then.

Yeah, I did a little happy dance when I found that feature.  :)

So I've been looking for a while to see why the Signature option isn't there for me.  I think it's because you don't get that option until your account reaches a certain age or a certain number of posts.  It almost makes sense that the option wouldn't be there at all until you reach that point because spammers would just come in, figure out the rule, do whatever they had to do to meet it, and then make their signature.  But if the rule is "Make 20 replies" or something, then they'd probably get kicked off trying to do that unless they actually added value.  I'll add a feature request that the place where you set your signature show up as "Once you've _____________, you can create a signature for yourself which will appear before all your posts.  Please enjoy helping others learn!"
