    Formating ones Signature, Tips and tricks

    Ive been getting asked a lot of questions about how i line my signature up with text and such so i figured that i would post it for eveyone to know:

    Lets start with how i made my current signature:
    _________________________________________________
    It started out as a feeling, Which then grew into a hope, Which then turned into a quiet thought, Which then turned into a quiet word, And then that word grew louder and louder 'Til it was a battle cry
    _________________________________________________
    Ive done this by using a table, we can use tables to help save space in our signatures and keep the same amount of content that would other wise be dubbed as a large siggy. The bb tags for the forums work the same way those in html do, for those of you who have never worked with html ill start from the beginning:
    There are 3 tags we can use:
    Code:
    
    
    table tells the page that the content in between the two tags is tags will be used for one table.
    tr is used to tell the page that everything between the tags is a row
    td tells the page that everything between the tags is a column

    To make things simple lets go ahead and name our image and text {img} {txt} (you can replace these later with your real image and text).

    To avoid trial and error by entering your signature into your profile then viewing a page you posted on you can preview your signature code by clicking 'new topic' or replying to an existing one, paste in your signatures code here and click preview to see how it will look. Youll find this easier and avoid loosing text since the signature block will remove anything over the set character limit, when we get the sig the way you want you can just copy it to your profile.

    lets go ahead and create my signature now, from what i posted above i have a table with 1 row and two columns:
    lets make our table code:
    Code:
    {img} {txt}
    now lets make a single row

    Code:
    {img} {txt}
    and two columns with in that one row
    Code:
    
    {img}
    {txt}
    since the two tags for a column are within the single row tag, the single row is split into two separate columns.
    But what if you want to have a image and two quotes? No problem, lets think this out you'll want two columns, but one column with two rows. Lets try putting the two row tags in the second column tag, since we want to have two rows in there
    Code:
    
    {img}
    {txt}{txt}
    It works! You can replace our {txt} tags with your text, you may decide you want to addin a quote or two. Be careful quotes can become long in their default format:
    Code:
    Quote Originally Posted by ...bigdog...

    that right there is 105 characters, and the quote barley says a thing! But we can remove the link, date, and change the author tag to save 60 characters!
    look at our new quote:
    Code:
    Quote Originally Posted by ...BigDog...

    Keep in mind, enter lines are counted as characters! So when your done with your signature be sure to remove its spare lines!
    Code:
    {img}{txt}{txt}
    _________________________________________________
    Image tags can be costly as well depending on where you host them, look at these two image url's:
    Code:
    Code:
    The first is 81 characters long, while the second is only 39; big difference.

    Not sure if this is the proper place to post this but it seems the most fitting, if anyone wants to see something added or something done in the tutorial just let me know!
