Hi guys, not sure if this is the right place to place this question but here goes.

Please help cause this has been driving me up the wall. lol

Well, it's really small because it's only 100x33 pixels, and everybody else has 400x120 images. So you need to re-do your sig in the proper dimensions.

Also, you need to add quotation marks at the start and end of your URL (so it would start as "http and end as 8879").

the reason your sig is so small is that you're linking to the thumbnail... hence the _th at the end of it

link to the full image and it'll look fine... not sure where your full image is

Ah. Good observation there.

Don't re-size anything, just get rid of the _th in your image URL then. ugh

Not so fast! Wink

The full size image is actually 1021x340, and 77095 bytes. Waaaaay to big to be a legal sig, so you'll have to cut that down (to 400x120 and 25000 bytes, IIRC).

Holy cow!

You actually got the image to show up? I tried to display both the thumbnail and the presumed original image, and it came up with a X for both (though oddly enough, the X for the thumbnail was the same size as the thumbnail itself...).

Confusing...

Fixed. :)

Try this one:

Which should give you this: Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.

Edit: Your signatures file size is too big though. The maximum size is 24000 bytes, but yours is 37091 bytes.
