Siggy How-To's — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

Siggy How-To's

Since The Bump changed formats, it’s time for a new DIY Signatures post! I tried to include as much detail as I could think of and practically wrote a book, so I'm breaking this up by adding replies to this post, too. Skim through for the pictures if you don't like to read! Basically, if you're having issues with something, the details are there, but if you just need the quick idea, the pictures should show you which buttons to click.

If you have any other questions or it doesn’t make sense, PM me.

How to change your signature

The Basics

Go here: http://forums.thebump.com/profile/signature. The page can also be found by clicking the icon of a person’s head at the top right of your screen under the brown header, then “Signature Settings.”

image     image

Type whatever you want into that box. If you want to add an image, use the “Add Image” button. Highlight something (text or picture), then click “Insert Hyperlink” to add a link. You have to highlight the part that you want to be a link before you can click “Insert Hyperlink.” If you highlight a picture, the picture itself becomes clicky.

Here’s the “Add Image” button, and the “Insert Hyperlink” one is right next to it, but it’s grayed out because I didn’t have anything selected.image

To change back to your “old” siggy:

If your signature disappeared or reverted to an old one when the Bump format changed, and you already had a siggy that you liked in the old Bump, you can copy and paste it to the new one.

Get your old siggy – you probably know how to do this, it’s where you used to change it. Quick link: http://www.thebump.com/profiles/currentusername/settings/avatar/index. Copy whatever is there. Then, go here: http://forums.thebump.com/profile/signature-- this is the new signature page which will actually change your signature, the old one won’t do anything anymore.

You’ll see a box for your signature code, if it’s blank, you’re off to a good start. If it shows an old siggy that you don’t want, delete whatever’s in there. Then click the “View Source” button, it’s the 2nd button from the end and looks like a piece of paper with <> on it. THAT is where you want to paste your “old” signature that you copied. If you put it in the box before you click “View Source”, it will show up with all the little codes and brackets, etc. and won’t display the pictures or create links.

image

After you paste it, you can click "View Source" again to go back to the regular view and make sure everything looks right. If you want to change something, go ahead. Then make sure you click "Save" - I don't think it warns you or anything if you forget to save your changes.

NOTE: If your original signature had anything with these brackets: [ ], those things won’t work (like [IMG] or [URL].) Your signature has to have plain text and/or HTML. HTML uses the < > type brackets and lots of quotes.

If you use the buttons above the signature box, like “Add Image,” it creates the HTML for you and you don’t even have to think about it. If you want to learn about HTML, they have a link right there. If you add HTML yourself, from what I can tell, you have to add it when viewing the source, otherwise it converts it to text and shows all the code instead of whatever you were using the code for (links, pictures, etc.)

    You're a genius! Thank you for posting all of this. Would you also be able to tell me how to get my ticker image in my siggy (not the link)? I've copied the image before, but I doubt that means it'll update daily as it should.

    Seriously, this is so SO helpful for the technologically-challenged such as myself.

  • Great job! May I suggest that you post this on your wall? It is what Ambsie did and it worked great for always being able to find it.

    Also, @BumpJackie you need to see this and share it with other boards!

    @lv2011 - I forgot tickers! They're basically like adding a picture, though. Are you talking about your FF ticker? There's a link called "Graphical Tickers" under "Sharing" and that will give you a code that you can insert just like a picture. If you want, you can also make it a link to your chart so it's a clicky ticker (just like making the little chart clicky, but use the ticker code instead of your FF home page code).
    Thanks, MrsDeo! I'll tinker with it and see if I can figure it out. I thought I had tried that already, but I must've had it wrong. Go figure :p

    @lmcaplan, I am not very familiar with the Nest tickers but from a quick search on the site, it seems that you can create a new ticker and select Get The Code, to copy the HTML code.

    Then you would go into Signature settings, find the Show Source button (Looks like <>), and paste the HTML code at the bottom.
