In assuming you're using Firefox right? Try clicking the view code buttton in the top right hand side I think it is and edit your post directly from there. Alternatively you could use the clear formatting button in the top left and do as much formatting as you can using cd tags.

Explicitly set a width for the very first div tag. Preferably exactly the same as the image width, as long as you are not using CSS borders

I don't really understand how to do something like this in css via the forums:

HTML Code:
<center><table border="0" cellspacing="0" >
<caption><img src="http://i43.tinypic.com/10ng4ma.jpg" /></caption>
<tr><td><a href="http://vdexproject.net/user.php?user=37392"><img src="http://vdexproject.net/p/37392/partymini.png" /></a></td>
<td rowspan="2"><a href="http://conora.dragonadopters.com/dragon_724477"><img src="http://conora.dragonadopters.com/dragonanimated_724477.gif" /></a></td></tr>
<tr><td><a href="http://my.gpxpl.us/Avara"><img src="http://p.gpxpl.us/TWdY.png" /></a></td></tr>
</table></center>
I do understand some html I just can't quite make the shift to using the variant with have in our sigs.

Well that's because the CSS here is limited to stuff that can be done as inline properties, as it's BBCode CSS, and no HTML can be used. [css-div="insertelement1here;insertelement2here;insertelement3here;insertelement4here;"][/css-div] is an example of how the BBCode CSS needs to be structured to function properly.

However, I see no CSS whatsoever in that code block of yours. All I see is HTML. Not even any inline CSS. And tables can't easily be done in BBCode CSS or with CSS in general. I've done a table once before myself using only CSS, but then I broke it when I went to modify it later.

That table is in the first post of this thread here if you want to study it: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=255029

That's the closest I can get in CSS, just using the images for now though to keep it small, however I don't want all that empty space around the two rows...

EDIT: Actually seems to be white space around the images, any way to shrink that via image size coding of any kind?

Hi, its me again. Is there a way to make is so that CSS boxes are aligned center? I tried using the align center thing that is preset, but then it screws up my whole post. Does anyone have a solution?

There might be a box align code or something but I'm not sure if it works on PC so what I usually do is inside the box I'd align it to what ever I want to align it to, like maybe to the centre, and then use the BBCode align to actually align the box to something, like maybe the right.
That way everything inside of the box stays where it is and you can still align the box to where ever.

margin:auto is your friend.

If you want to be a little bit more specific:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/margin

Code:
margin: <value> for all sides
margin: <vertical> <horizontal>
margin: <top> <horizontal> <bottom>
margin: <top> <right> <bottom> <left>
If you want to centre a DIV block, make sure that the horizontal or left and right margins are all set to auto.

Background images in a div, or inline images?

For the former, use the background-size property.

For the latter, nope, nothing can help you, aside from manually resizing the image to be used in the first place. You should do manual resizing, as scaling down a large image to a smaller size anyway can waste bandwidth, and scaling up a small image to larger sizes might have different final rendering quality depending on the browser.

I'm back. This is what, the fourth or fifth time now? XD
So here is my problem. I am working on a new sig, but it isn't working.
What it looks like now:
Spoiler:





How do I get that final image up further so it isn't floating in the middle of nowhere? I'd also like some space between that image and the outside border of the largest box.

I bumped it up a bit for you, you can just change the "top:-300px;" to whatever value you'd like to align it perfectly however you want. As for the space in between, I just moved the picture over in the same way 15 pixels. Not sure if it's the most elegant way to do it but it works :3

Thanks! Could you give me the code? (I know I'm a hypocrite by saying that, as I didn't do it in my original post XD)

I love this thread too much to leave without posting again. XDWell, this is what my problem is now. That last image is there when I take away the span tag for the text, but then the image disappears as soon as I try to put the tag back on or I center it. I've tried everything I know, but I can't seem to have the text and image both be aligned in the way I want.
Example:
This is how I want the text/symbols. Centered and all. But I can't see the other image.
Spoiler:


: : : :



Now without those tags, I get the image, but the text isn't aligned. Center tags will do the same thing as the span tags I have inserted.
Spoiler:


: : : :


Anyone got a solution?

Maybe I'm missing something but those don't look centered so I'm confused as to what you want, things aren't aligned at least in the code you pasted. The two look like this:

That's weird, because with mine, the stuff is centered on the first one. IDK what it is, because your post looks different from mine. :\
