    Default What's the deal with signatures?

    Sometimes my signature appears at the bottom of my posts. Sometimes it doesn't. What gives?

    Obviously, it has to do with the box being checked or not, but why do some forums default to showing it and others to not showing it?

    Until recently, I believe the default was checked, always.

    I didn't realize some forums defaulted on and other off though.
    I have noticed that Quick Reply defaults to checked, but regular Reply defaults to unchecked.

    I believe it also will appear only once per page, regardless.

    That's a fact Jack.

    Actually I think it is once per thread.

    It's once per page, but no matter how you check the box in your profile, your posts (other then quick reply) will always default to no sig. . .

    I think Rob is trying to save bandwidth. I can't say as I blame him!

    I dunno what the deal is, but it may be fixed... my sig appears now, in any forum I've tried.

    I believe that I have it set where signature appear when you start a new thread, and if you reply using the Quick Reply box....something I need to change. Any other time, when replying to a thread, you need to check the box to include your signature.

    Yes, I too have the perplexing signature problem. I am wondering why they just don't allow signatures all the time? Perhaps because people place pictures of their car and their database and system can't handle it? As mentioned a possible bandwidth issue. This forum does seem to execute very fast and effectively. On the other hand, perhaps Rob can allow up to say five lines of signature text and NO graphics, smileys, etc. That might be a good compromise. Now, lets see if my signature appears below.

    Trying again to check signature. I clicked on the "Show your signature" box below and hit the lower submit reply button.

    No signature appears now. Clicked the show sig box and this time hit the upper submit button.

    There is an 'option' under your personal setting to turn off the display of signatures all together. That is my setting. With a forum of this size and the every increasing size of 'signatures', I sat my control panel option to not show any signatures. My own personal signature is rather short for those that want to see it - unless I turn it off as I did for this post.

    Z06ADCT, a sig shows in post #9 (no pic, just a cute saying). I believe sigs will only show up once either per thread or per page. I'm not sure which. Anyway, since a sig showed up in #9, no other sigs will show in this thread.

    Check your sig pic in the Proving Grounds Forum, that is what that forum is for, and if you have trouble...we'll try to help you out.

    Heidi, I do not have a picture in my signature. Only my saying. The funny thing is that I can see the signature "text" in the "Preview Post" option, but when it does get posted, it does not show.

    In every thread you post in and select your sig pic, or just this thread (posts #9, 10 and 11) where the sig only shows up in #9?

    If you have already posted and selected your sig pic, it will only show once per thread/page no matter how many times you select the pic to show in the same thread.
    An example is this thread, where your sig showed in #9, but not in #s 10 and 11, even though you certainly selected the sig to show.
