Default How to link to your Gallery to your Signature

0
PLEASE NOTE: Your forum and gallery signatures will look slightly different, please read this post on how they differ and how you can work around it. HERE


To link your GALLERY to your signature (so that it appears every time you create a post) follow these steps:

Please note: I use Chrome for my internet browser so some things will look a bit different if you are using another browser like Firefox or Opera. The main difference for this tutorial is that Chrome shows the format codes ie. . In Firefox and Opera these codes are 'hidden', so if the codes become too confusing, simply use Firefox or Opera to create your signature.


1. Click the User CP link in the top left hand corner of screen (on the brown toolbar).




2. Go down to the Edit Signature option on the left hand menu.


Type some text like MY GALLERY or if you already have a signature, add some extra text (don't forget you can only use "three lines" for your siggy). You can center your text or use the bold format on it if you wish as well. (In my example I centered my text, hence the codes at the beginning and end of my text. Read the note in red above.



3. Don't click anything else........... now just scroll up to the top of the screen until you see the line of links at the top on the right. Holding your CTRL (or Command) key down, normal click on the gallery link, see below.


***(Using the CTRL (or Command on a Mac) button to click on any links will open that link in another tab on your browser.)



4. This will open the Gallery on a new tab. Now you should now have two tabs open, one with your Edit Signature and one with the gallery.

On the Gallery tab, click the My Photos link in the top left on the brown toolbar to access your own gallery.




5. Your gallery will now open.



Click on the URL address, right at the top of your browser (it should start with (https:// ), then use CTRL+C to copy the link.




6. Go back to the other tab and highlight the text you entered earlier ie. MY GALLERY. (If you are using Chrome and can see the [codes] just highlight the text part only as shown below. Then click the Linking symbol at the top of your post (blue world with chain link) and when the box comes up, use CTRL+V to paste the link in.






7. At this point you can click either the Save or Preview Signature button.



8. The Preview Signature button will preview your signature in the top part of the screen, with your edit signature box below it. If you change anything, you need to click the Preview button again to see them.


When you are happy with it go ahead and click Save.

Create a new post (in this thread is okay) to see if your signature is showing okay. All your old posts will now show your new signature as well but it might take a bit for the system to refresh itself.

***Make sure you are not taking up more than 3 lines as the system may not like it, see how my signature looks in the example above.



If you have any problems then please ask here, I will be only too happy to help.

Thank you So Much for this tutorial.
I was able to create a signature, including a link to my gallery.
At first, I didn't think it was working, because it wasn't showing up in past posts, although it was fine when I did a "preview" at the "edit signature".
I tried logging out of Oscraps, and that didn't help.
I tried deleting all history at my internet (Firefox), and that didn't help.
But, when I made a new post, it was there!!
Awesome!!
Thank You!!

testing the link to my gallery... hmm don't know if I like it centered...
It's better on the left side.
Should it not appear in all posts I made before? Or only in new ones?

Hmmm, well I thought it did but it appears it doesn't as I have gone to some older posts by people that have posted here to say that their gallery worked in their siggys. I will have another look tomorrow but for now it is 1.23am for me and I need to go to bed.
