    Default Using Avatars and Signatures!

    A lot of members on Free Realms Insider want to use a custom Avatar or a custom Signature, but can't get it to show up, or can't find where the settings are. Hopefully this will prove useful to someone with a similar problem.


    Using Avatars!
    Spoiler: show


    1.png
    To set an Avatar or a Signature, go to the top of the page and click 'Settings'.


    2.png
    Scroll down until you see 'My Settings', and choose either 'Edit Avatar' or 'Edit Signature'.

    Setting an Avatar is easy, either copy and paste the URL to your avatar into the box, or just Browse your computer and upload your Avatar directly from your computer. Just make sure your Avatar meets the requirements, which you can see when you're setting your Avatar. The largest your Avatar can be is 125 by 125 pixels, or 19.5 KB [whichever is smaller].



    Setting a Signature!
    Spoiler: show


    You get to 'Edit Signature' the same way you do Avatars. Go to the top of the page and click 'Settings', then scroll down until you see 'Edit Signature'.

    Signatures can be just a small comment under someone's post, or a big picture . . Or both!

    Setting a Signature picture is a bit more complicated, but still pretty easy. Just use one of two methods to upload your Signature; Either copy and paste the URL to your Signature picture, or Browse and upload it directly from your computer. Then hit 'Upload'. The maximum size your Signature can be is 400 by 100 pixels, or 29.3 KB [whichever is smaller].


    4.png
    Make sure to hit 'Insert Signature Picture', or else if you had a picture in your Signature it won't show up.

    5.png
    If you inserted a picture for your Signature, it should say [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] in the white text box. If you didn't add a picture, just type what you want your Signature to be.


    6.png
    Once you've got your Signature all set, make sure the next time you write a reply to a thread, to click the little check box 'Show Your Signature'. You should only need to click that once, now all your posts will have your pretty new Signature under them!



    ------

    In order to use a custom Avatar, you must have at least ten posts.

    If you still have any questions just ask for help, there are a lot of members here that can explain it way better than I can.

    ​^^ I'm sure members will appreciate the time you have taken to explain how to do this. (: Thank you for posting!

    edit:
    I should say you forgot to say that

    If you wish to use your own avatar, a custom made one, a person must first get 10 *I believe* post in order to use one.

    *Made it big so people would notice it*

    I do have one question though...how do I upload a GIF image? That's the only thing I've never been able to figure out. 0.o

    Uploading a GIF image, as an Avatar or Signature? It should work the same way as a JPEG/PNG image, just make sure it meets the requirements so it can stay animated.

    Avatars: 125 by 125 pixels, or 19.5 KB [whichever is smaller].
    Signatures: 400 by 100 pixels, or 29.3 KB [whichever is smaller].


    I've used animated Avatars, and they work fine [stay animated] as long as they're the right size.

    Also, thank you everyone for the positive feedback! :]
