Not often we get a 50 msg post here in the sand box. Use this thread to fiddle with pictures by your name - please feel free to ask for help if you get stuck. Part I of this thread is available here

----------------------------
Ok kiddies, Marco has emerged from his lab in the FSB with a nifty trick. By now you've seen the ChiSox logo next to his name. Shazzam - how did he do it?

With HTML, of course.

Here's some sample code...

1. Go to your profile settings - via a link available at the upper right of most forum pages. Remember this? Its where you entered your name, town, interests, etc.

2. We're gonna use the space allotted for 'City State Country' to insert a picture.

3. Here's the sample code:



- replace the 'yourISP.com ... etc. with your own information.

- max size is 30x30 - if your picture/image is larger than that you can reduce it using the 'width' and 'height' parameters as shown in the example.

- max length of the string specifying your picture is 150 characters.

- if you exceed max size or max length, it won't work. (At least it didn't for me.)

Post your trials here - if you need more help, leave a message.

Also - the change does not appear immediately retroactive to prior messages.

Rgds,
Saint Reanimator

-----------------

Notes:
1. The IMG tag - which can be used just fine in messages - will not work to put a picture by your name. You need to use HTML - see the first message in this thread for an example.

2. The image you want to post needs to be accessible by a Web server. Typically, this will be some space set aside for you by whomever you connect with to get on the Internet - aka your ISP or Internet Service Provider. You must upload your image to this space. Check w/ your ISP on how to do this.

While *you* can see an image posted here where the file resides on your local hard disk, no one else can see these.

3. If you put a very long name in your Profile 'City Country' area - it will push the name column on the page out and reduce the size of the message area. This is a no no - we'd like to keep all pages looking the same. Hence the guidelines on length, width, and size.

4. Be careful - HTML requires the ANGLE brackets <...>
The SQUARE brackets [...] do not work for a picture next to your name.

Now - if you want to you can also include your location along with your picture. Here's sample code. Just change 'My Town' to where you want to use, otherwise cut n paste* as shown in blue - then modify as appropriate for your ISP and your image.


My Town


If you're having problems - put the code you're using in a message here and I'll try to help. Unlike regular Forum messages, I don't have straightforward access to your Profile area and thus can't debug there.

Ok - here it is in a message.

Lainey

The code I used to display it is as follows -just cut n paste for future use...

Lainey

To put it by your name, follow the steps in the first message in this thread. See the words in red? Those are the equivalent of the code you just posted - except you must add the brackets at the front and the end. Also include the 'width' and 'length' as suggested in the above message.

Lainey - please read the instructions in the first message of this thread and my notes further on down. You're attempting to use the IMG tag with square bracket and this does not work next to your name.

I try to stay as far away from AOL as possible. I do have a Yahoo E-mail account.

test of Lainey's pic by signature

Ok - it works - I'm using your image on your server to do this. I won't keep it for long - just so you can see it works.

Do you see my message with 40x40 - a few up from this msg. Just copy the code there and put it in your profile.

Lainey - your are close

You Cannot Use Square Brackets.
You must Use the Angle Brackets.

OK - see the words in red about the brackets?

You're still using the square brackets. Try it with the angle brackets. Those are on the keys with the period and the comma. Press the shift key while pressing the comma for left angle bracket,,, etc.


Lainey - when testing - be sure you erase you previous Profile code before trying new code.

Congratulations on your Wacko status. Once again, perseverance pays off. :-)

Now - if you want to you can also include your location along with your picture. Here's sample code. Just change 'My Town' to where you want to use, otherwise cut n past *exactly* as shown in blue.



My Town

Lainey - I think you're missing that [br] (with the angle brackets) after your "Indiana".
