Eddie, you will have to upload it to a serve somewhere.  If you don't have a web site, there are a number of places that will give you free web space.  I have never used one of the services myself but Teejay will know where to find one.  After you get it uploaded, you can put the link to it in your profile.  Again, Teejay will be better help on this one than me.

Someone else just asked this question like a week ago so maybe someone can point you to that thread.  It has specific instructions.  :bouncy:

first you must upload your siggie  i used to use photobucket ..it was free and now it isnt free. so i swapped over to  this one ...   https://vgy.me/   this one is free .
anyway ...... i think you may have to make an account..

once you have uploaded to that site or one of your choosing...
 you need to  copy the siggie '(img) 'link .......and post it in the signature part of your forum profile...

clear as mud...yep i can confuse a dead leaf....
if you dont get it ...yell... and someone with  brainier fingers will rescue you.

 :thanks06: San, Nothing like stretching the old grey matter until itís about to explode then finding out you were doing it all wrong in the first place. Then you ask for help and the problem is solved in a few moments. The moral of this story is... Two heads are better than one  :lol02: :praise52:

Margaret, you have to use the same type of code used here on the board.  Here's an example of mine:

Where I have the left ( and right ), replace those with a left [ and a right ]  .

Hope that helps!
