Great!  Now test it in your signature and see if it works there too.  wink

Hmmmm, I just clicked on the linked signature tag in the attached image of our post, and the only thing it did was popup a window with your signature tag in it.  It didn’t go to your ShareCG Gallery.  I guess it’s not really working as we’d like it to.  long face

always wanted to try a SPAM post, full of SPAM which is spiced ham. SPAM in a can, and spread my SPAM all over the plate with sauce and mustard.
will I get reported for SPAMING?

Actually, it is for my signature banner at Renderosity… now my banner there works again… before I was using an old (DAZ) gallery image link… when the site change occurred, I lost all my banners everywhere. I’m restoring them one at a time. Thanks to chohole’s instructions I have a working signature link (no banner images there anymore) at SketchUcation, now.

I stick my pictures on facebook now and embed them with a resize code I got somewhere (not here though yet as I cannot) because flickr capped me at 100 pics for free and photobucket stopped linking to full sized ones via the thumbs.

I assume you are speaking to Lorvidcore and not the troll posting SPAMSPAMSPAMSPAM

It’s really good to see the avatars and the banners coming back to the site!  Thanks Daz! grin

Interesting thread, I’d like to try that - but what are the rules on Signature Banners? (or the links below them while banners that are links are not yet working?)

What rules do you mean.

Banner image max size 480 x 80   kb size 80kb image type .gif .jpg or .png (same as forum images file types).  This is shown on the “edit signature” screen in “your control panel” (top left of forum panel here)

Text and clickable URL links :- it also shows the total character allowed. I can’t check how many that is as I have used some of mine up.

Right. That’s all useful, thanks.  I also wanted to know what can and can’t be a link.  Like I’ve seen people link to their freebies so:
Can people link to their items for sale? 
To their own website?
To a page on their website with a tutorial?
To a page on their website with for sale items?
To another forum?
To another website’s forum/s?
To a gallery image here?
To a gallery image elsewhere?

Stuff like that.

Till someone of greater knowledge replies, my guess is based on what was allowed in the past… I’ve seen people with banner-links to their Zazzle catalog page (stuff is for sale there), personal galleries, personal websites (with stuff available for sale), other forums and websites and links to tutorials. I’d imagine it is still the same… I’d imagine only stuff that violates the TOS or is spam-like would be prohibited.
PS if you are the same Franontheedge who made all those cool Bryce materials on ShareCG… Thanks!

For obvious reasons Daz3d would rather that you didn’t make links to other forums, or to other website’s forums in your signature bar, as a permanent link, but have no objection to links like this within a post, as long as they are not to “Adult” sites. Links to a gallery image here won’t work at the moment, but only because we don’t have any working galleries at the moment. Links to a gallery image elsewhere are only allowed if that gallery has built in adult content filters which would prevent any under age forum members from being able to view undesirable images.
