Ok, Where can you get the cool down load for your signature that shows the States you have traveled? I would likes to have one as well..... :)

to add you have to use the img syntax.
I cannot use straight here, because then it WILL put the image, but is like this:

type one "[" them type the words "img" them type the close bracked "]" then type the full address for your image (yes, you have to host your image in one server), like http://www.yourserver.com/your_map.gif
then type one "[" them type the words "/img" them type the close bracked "]"

should work

You can also host your image in the photo section of the BMWLT.com site. That's where mine resides.

Resize them in Paint under Image and Resize/Skew.

That way your signature isn't half a page. You can still see them pretty well.

Don't make me come over there!! :D

For the process to include the image in your signature, here's what I did -
  • Go to the gallery on the site via the link at the top of the page.
  • Select "Avatars and GIFs" and upload your map picture there
  • Once uploaded, scroll down below the image and you'll see a box labeled "BB Image Code". Copy the contents of that box entirely
  • Go to the User CP, and edit your signature
  • Paste this content into your sig where you want it
  • Save your changes and Voila!

OK, now I look even stupider (like that's possible). It worked doing that then it went away,and now it won't display. I'm figuring it out.

And yes, Steve, I can hear the "I Told You So!!" all the way over here. :D

EDIT - YAY I fixed it! I'll update the instructions above to fix the issue. Sorry sbout that!

How do you update it, or do you have to do a new map every time?

Yes, if you add states you go back to the site and generate a new map image. Then add it here (hopefully with less stupidity than I used :eek: :) ).

Yeah you need to resize it Gene, cause all I am seeing is the "You Are Here" spot on your map. :D

Hey Steve,

Looks like you and I should plan a trip to California and come home the northern route. I'd love to knock out the rest of the states this summer.
:) ;)

Looks like there's still some issue with how it's captured in your sig line. I saw your file posted in the gallery so it's in the right spot. Maybe you should edit your signature and re-copy and paste BB IMage Code data again. I tried to (I'm on of the site moderators so I get to go special places :D ) but I couldn't save the changes. maybe change the "IMG" to"img", that seemed to have some affect when I was adding mine for some reason.
