    This is where I get stuck.

    I right clicked on the picture, properties, and wrote down the url. (That copy and paste thing doesn't work for me).

    Went to user cp, edit profile, edit signature (there is no option to "scroll down" to the signature box, so I chose "edit signature"). I put in http:....blah blah blah with no spaces anywhere. Then I clicked on save signature.

    When I ran a test all that appears is the [url]http://...blah[/url] blah blah and no picture.

    I do not think Yahoo lets you link. Right click on the picture, save it to your PC. Open an account at www.photobucket.com. Then upload the picture there and get the code to post here. PB also sets up the img things for you. Let me know how you do or if I lost you.

    Ok Dan

    I signed up for the free photobucket.

    I did manage to upload my picture in it.

    So I copied down the http:///...blah blah blah

    Went to cp, edit profile, edit signature, [​IMG]
    no extra characters inbetween.

    Saved

    Now all I get is a box with a little red x inside of it on my signature line.
    Why is this so hard for me. I am not computer smart at all but this seems so easy. I clicked on the box and nothing!!!!

    In PB, under the picture, there is a line with img in the front. Just click once (left mouse button), on the code itself (inside the box). The code should have the [​IMG] already all set for you. The code should highlight. Put your mouse pointer over the highlighted text. If you say your right click, copy/paste does not work, hit your Ctrl key and C key at the same time (copy command). Then come back here and in the message box, do a Ctrl V (paste command).

    If you read my clipart thread in the FAQ's, you will see that I make mention of the fact that it can be frustrating till you catch the idea. Once you do, you will say....DUH!! :faint: :teeth:

    You said the copy/paste thing on the mouse does not work for you. Do you have a Mac? I think those can't do a copy/paste.

    Dan,

    We're off to see our TA and pay our cruise off. I'll be back in about an hour.
    Thank you for all your help. Hopefully we can get this to work when I return. I can't imagine spending an entire Saturday on this.

    :rotfl:

    Here is all you need. Go to the 'qoute' button in the lower right corner of this post, click on it and you will see what I have.

    I am not sure where you are getting all that code you have there, but it is too much, plus it is the html one, you need the img one.

    All that said, the clip is way too big to use in your signature. Try the edit feature on PB, make it 50% and see how big it is. The size sghould wind up okay, but the bytes may still be too much for their new rules here. We'll get it though, we're getting there. :) [​IMG]

    Here is a 'legal' sized one, more transparent in the white areas. Do the same as you did before, copy this to your PC, then upload to your PB and use the img set. Let me know how you do.

    Not sure where you are getting that code. A simple copy and paste would work great. Do you have a Mac there or are you using a PC?? I can see a few things there...........


    Should be no L after http, the c is missing in photobucket, the jgp at the end should be jpg. I made those changes, still does not work, so there are more errors than those 3, but can't tell what they are.

    LOL, I'm here. :wave: :cheer2: I told you you would get it. I just hope you can get the copy paste thing to work, it is SOOOOOOOO much easier.

    Also, if you want a correctly sized and 'cleaner' looking one, save this to your pc and then upload and save in PB and then use. It is a gif file rather than a jpg file.

    Here is the actual image or the file url. You can right click on the file and save to your PC (if you have a PC, maybe you have a Mac)
