Here is the gif I would like to insert into my signature but the script is to long. Any geniuses that can help figure this out? Much thanks in advance.

Remove the URL tags for starters. If that doesn't work link it with a tiny URL via their website.

You need to resize the image first. The max dimensions are:

Your images may only be up to 170 pixels high.
Your images may only be up to 300 pixels wide.


Once you resize the image, add the following code to the signature area:

Code: Select all

All you need to use the gif is [ IMG]http://cdn.makeagif.com/media/1-08-2015/1LbkCS.gif[ /IMG] (remove the spaces after the [), the rest just makes it into a link you can click on.

And this is exactly why i turn off signatures in forums.

Why would i want to see your gif on every single reply you write??
Its just plain annoying.

I like seeing members cars doing cool things. For instance, Gary's gif is one of my favorites.

Why would you complain about this when you have the ability to turn signatures off?

Personally I'd crop is to just be the section with the action, but that's just me.

I find it odd that MWP disables signatures when he has one.

Oh, I'm not saying all sigs are bad, just ones that take up a bunch of room in the screen, or that are super distracting.

The majority of forums limit the number of characters and dont allow images in sigs for this very reason.
On those forums i leave sigs enabled.

We've got a limit of 170px*300px, anything that small shouldn't be too bad.
