Step by step instructions on how to set up your signature.
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS TO SETTING UP YOUR SIGNATURE BLOCK


****YOU MUST HAVE AN UPGRADED MEMBERSHIP OR ABOVE TO USE IMAGES. IF THE IMAGE IS ANIMATED, YOU MUST HAVE A PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP OR ABOVE.****

TO SAVE IMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER:
1. Right-click on the image itself.
2. Click on the option to “Save image as…”
3. Name your image. Set the file type to JPG, JPEG or PNG. Make sure your desktop is your saving location. Click on “Save.”

TO UPLOAD THE IMAGE TO YOUR PORTFOLIO:
1. Click on “Create New Item” on the left side of your screen from the Hub page.
2. Under “Upgraded,” choose “Image.”
3. Give your image a title, a brief description and an intro rating.
4. On the left side next to the title, click on the gray box that says “Add an Image.” Then click inside the white box to bring up the box to choose your image.
5. Choose the image you just saved to your desktop. Once it’s done uploading and you have a green check mark, click on “Done” in the upper right corner.
6. Under “Subtype,” choose “Signature.”
7. Choose the location in your portfolio you want your image stored.
8. Choose the content rating.
9. Under where it says, “Make PUBLIC, Allow Everyone,” leave that set where it is.
10. Choose your three genres.
11. Under “Image Settings,” choose “Registered Users and Higher.”
12. Click on “Save and View.”
13. Once it reloads and your image is there, WRITE DOWN THE ITEM ID NUMBER. You will need this in the next section to set your signature up.

TO SET YOUR SIGNATURE:
1. Click on “My Account” on the left side of your screen from the Hub page.
2. Choose “Account Settings.”
3. Scroll down to “Additional Account Settings,” and click on “Manage Signatures.”
4. In the top white box labeled “Default Signature,” type in the following, without spaces, and replace “xxxxxxx” with the item id number you wrote down earlier.

{image : xxxxxxx}

Or you can type in (again with x being your item id number):

{image : xxxxxxx – 50%}

This will make the image a bit smaller so it won’t take up most of the screen on your emails or forum posts.

5. Click on “Update.”
6. Click on “Click HERE to test view it.” You should see your signature image just as it will appear in emails and forum posts.

Congratulations – you have just now set up your signature!


Once your signature is set up, you can remove the image from your computer. However, I always like to keep the image in a folder labeled "Signatures" on my computer as a back up in case I accidentally delete it from WDC. That way, I can always pull it back up if I need to.
