Hi y'all.  I need help!  I have a new 3rd Party Image Hoster - But, I can't seem to get the new photo image into my Signature.

I put the URL in between the IMG designations, but nothing shows up.  At least the warning from Photobucket is now removed.

Can anyone help guide me through the process?

go to PROFILE  (in the row above where it says  "HOME  HELP, SEARCH , etc)  ,  and then under Modify Profile (on the left),  select Forum Profile information.   Select   "I have my own pic" and put the photo URL in the box .  and add any "Personal Text' you'd like also.

Maybe for the southern Dutch (from Zeeland, Noord Brabant or Mississippi)!    Or the Ghetto children from the Surinaamse and Molukkan neighbourhoods in Den Haag, Rotterdam and Amsterdam???    Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I did all you told me to do.  But after selecting "change Forum Profile information", I DON'T get an "I have my own pic" link button to choose it.  I placed the URL address of my 3rd Party sharing website page with my photo in the box, both in between , and in the box, alone, without the IMG designations.  And NEITHER attempt worked.  Could it be that you de-activated my ability to place a photo in my signature when you erased my non-allowed-to-be-shown photo message from Photobucket?

I didn't deactivate that "Photobucket" thing ...  so that wasn't me.

In the Forum Profile Information (under Modify Profile), you should see a big "PROFILE" box with selections   "Personalized Picture", "I have my own pic", "I will upload my own picture", and then "Personal Text". .. If you're not seeing that, Mike may have set up the forum so that only moderators can do this.  I'm not sure.    

If you can't get it to work,  what is the URL for your picture?  I'll try to put it in

Also, I looked at your attempt to add an img in your signature . the URL that you used was invalid . it wasn't a photo.  You might want to try that again, also.

When I click on "Profile" I go to my personal profile page.  There is a column on the left which has "modify profile".  When I click on that, I go to my profile entries (with boxes for typing in information.  I DO NOT see any of the following:  "Personalized Picture", "I have my own pic",[/b] "I will upload my own picture".

So maybe that is only for moderators.  I guess I could be able to upload my photo if I could find the page on the 3rd party hosting site that allows my photo to be accessed.  In both Photobucket and Imageshack, I just clicked on my uploaded image in my album or gallery, and a new page came up with a set of hosting codes to use for hosting for various types of websites.  But, that doesn't seem to work from the images stored in my "album" on my new 3rd party hosting website at imgBB.

OOOOOOOEPS!!!!  Something's wrong!!!  I already have my personal photo from about 5 years ago as my AVATAR!  We don't need to see TWO of me!  Many of you are probably sick of seeing ONE of those on all my posts.  Can anyone tell me what photo I used to have in my signature?  I'd like to re-post it.  For now, I'll post of photo of me taken 30 years ago, when I was still reasonably young, and still had most of my wits!  Cheesy

OUCH!  I can still remember the terrible pain from that accident I had with the giant stapler!   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Rob, an avatar photo (small on the left under your name) and a Signature photo (appears under each of your post) is fine .. in fact, it's interesting to see the difference that the years have made !     Cheesy

Thanks.  But I was hoping someone would remember what I used to have in my Signature.  I was hoping it was something very clever and interesting - or, perhaps pertinent to VGH???

Robb - You didn't have a photo in your signature at all, just the avatar one that I noticed when I first joined.  I wanted to put mine, I have a recent one, but I don't know how.

I think I had some kind of graphic in my Signature because my 3rd Party Hosting Website stopped showing it because that's a service they no longer provide for free.  If I didn't have some form of graphics, and it was only text, I wouldn't have had it hosted by a website.  I'd have just typed it into my Signature Box.  I wish I could remember whjat it was.  Could it have been a scan of a record label (Parrot?, Chance?, Theron?, VJ?, Checker?)

I've been trying to remember, too, but nothing comes to mind. A picture of a label scan or photo would have stood out, but I may be wrong.  Must have been distracted by that handsome face Smiley

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy  Maybe "distinguished-looking is a better description.  

Like good old Red Green (another bearded, mustachioed, gray-haired Canadian, who, like myself, always wears jeans and plaid wool long-sleeved shirts, tries to fix everything with duct tape, and whose favourite saying is "Keep your stick on the ice!".

Here's that guy who tries to steal my identity:

Jack - I followed the steps you mentioned in Reply #1 but I don't see "I have my own picture."  anywhere.  I'd like to put it to the left, not in the signature.

Jack - Sent you a different photo from FB.  It was taken this past Thanksgiving at 3am in front of the former Jubilee building.  Hope it works, I'm not at all good with photos.
