Can anyone please tell me what I may be doing wrong? I am trying to upload a pic and gif from my computer that I found on some websites so I can add them to my signature (can you have two pics/gifs in your signature at a time?).

Thanks in advance, and in no way are these my pics! Hopefully no one will mind that I am using them...I will give them credit in my signature!

I was personally never a huge fan of directly uploading signatures via the uploading signatures method, and instead utilized sites like Imgur (imgur.com), or if you have photobucket, to use that instead. n_n;; I could be wrong, I just find it a whole lot more reliable than using PC's method.

But I could be wrong though?? I haven't even touched that button in like forever.

Thanks, but I don't use either of those sites (although I probably should LOL). I also really like the pics I found, too...can anyone else try to please help me? I would be very grateful. :)

No, I don't think so...I haven't ever done this before LOL. XD Is that what I am supposed to do? :)

Yeah for my signature I used that code and I have a small pixel.

I'm not sure if both will fit though, but you can try. So it would be firstimageurl
secondimageurl

Hopefully that will work c:

Thank you so much! I will try that! :D

Ok, I must be doing something wrong...I don't know what I am doing because it STILL isn't working...I hate to say this, but maybe I should just give up, even though I really want that little pixelated gif as my signature. :(

Lol oh dear. Ok I'll show you.

This is how it should look when you type it up in the signature box just without the dash before the http.

If you're using any image-hosting website to upload the picture you want to add to your signature (such as Imgur (http://imgur.com/)), then copy the link with the / tags around it, like others have mentioned. :D

Here's a picture:

Just copy the link it gives you with the tags around it and place it in your signature and it should work. :]

GRRRR! I did exactly what you guys told me and it STILL didn't work! :( I am just going to give up...I am sorry if I was driving you nuts with all of this...it's just that I haven't ever done this before. Maybe there is something wrong with the links? I don't know...probably not. :/ I guess I will just stick to signatures that are typed out, LOL! :P

Thank you all for your help, but I don't know what on Earth is going on! Is it just my computer or what, because I copied and pasted exactly what you guys had for me, and it would not work no matter what I did! It would always say 'invalid file" or something like "wrong URL" (that is what it is called, right? A URL?) I give up! :( Thanks for your kindness and help anyways though, everyone. :)

EDIT: I DID IT!!!! YEAH!!!! (sorry, but I am just a little excited here)! :D

is it possible for me to add a video on my laptop as an avi file to my signature?

Probably not. Methinks it would break size limitations (mb too big) unless converted and compressed into a .gif.

Mod might know more.

You'd have to turn it into a gif and then you can add in a click-to-play sound file, but it can't be auto-play. If you want help just send me a message and I'll be glad to assist :)
