View Full Version : Question: Desperately need help

November 23rd, 2009, 10:05 AM
I remember I made another thread like this in the past,so here it goes.First things first,look at my signature in its entire unfinished glory.You can see it's almost finished,but if I add any other letter on the unfinished lines,it goes boom.What does that mean?The text wraps around!And if that happens,the editor says it can't save the signature because it's 25 lines long when all I want is ten unwrapped ones.I can't understand why it won't let me when I already have some which are perfectly unwrapped.
So,my question is,do any of you know what can I do to prevent wrapping?Anything goes,but please,answer my question!Thanks in advance!

Have you tried stuffing it in a CSS box with no scrollbar?

btw, it'd probably be smart if you hid your signature in a spoiler until you got it fixed. (if you can)

Also the editor wraps in the text box, and so does the browser, so you'll probably need to use CSS to prevent that if it's at all possible

The problem is I have no clue how to do that XD
Anymore help is welcome!

http://www.ppnstudio.com/node/273 (http://www.ppnstudio.com/node/273)Might help you with CSS.

other options are:
-your sig is annoying, get rid of it
-Make it a image. I realize it'll be too wide but maybe you can ask staff?
-Also you could make it an image and put the image into CSS, then I think it's OK.

Also you could make it an image and put the image into CSS, then I think it's OK.Nope, the images dimensions still can't add up to more than 500x300px.

I'd go for ^'s first option.

I'm just trying to be unique,so that would be the last option I would choose.I'm refusing to believe I spent ~4 hours for a signature just to find out that it's impossible to finish it and that I'm going to have to take it down,rendering all the work useless.I'm just sick and tired of all the existing CSS signatures in a little box that are trying to look professional or the other signatures full of userbars for hacks/games and "cool" trainer cards.

1. Delete current crummy signature. It's ugly and you won't finish it like that.
2. Learn to use CSS
3. Learn to make nice images in <whatever image editor you think is better than chuck norris>, or take the lazy way and find someone who can do it for you, and will do so gladly. XD
4. Build Signature using CSS, make it pretty, make it unique, make it something that's yours, but don't make it UGLY. o.o
5. ?????!
6. PROFIT!!!!!!

But in all seriousness, do try reducing the font sizes, ect... Remember, not everyone has widescreen monitors. >_>

My screen is damn wide and the damn thing looks damn ridiculous.

The damn conclusion? If you can't do it with the CSS or if you can't handle or use the needed CSS you may as well take it down. There goes 4 hours in vain of your life, but learn from this experience instead of angering yourself.

I lost the game

Okay,I don't know why you came over the idea I was angry,but anyway:Angry=/=disappointed.There is also no need to swear,remember that after all we are still on a kid's Pokemon forum.

I apologise if the last few lines of my previous post were a little edgy,but that's a mistake on my part,as I let my frustration take the best of me.It is only a signature,and I will think of new ideas for one,as I now find this signature kind of meh anyway XD.

So yeah,I will also be honest and tell you that it wasn't really 4 hours,I also secretly added the hour needed for thinking,so it wasn't such a big loss of my life.Anyway,thanks for the constructive criticism and trying to help,and have a nice day!You can now lock this thread.
