Like iMeow mentioned, you need at least (not more) 10 posts to display a signature on your posts. Security reason against spammers. Also, be sure to attach it on Account >> Privacy Settings >> Always attach my signature.

Please note that you can't use HTML on signatures. Security reason against hackers and troublemakers who like to mess up with codes. Use BB code instead, like this.

Code:
[url=http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=245023&id=644091052&l=e903a55085]Handmade beach decor by Vancouver artist[/url]

Now you have 10 posts, it should show up Happy Eyes

I put the code in, thanks!

I'm supposing BBcode stands for bulletin board? Rofl........it's been awhile since I wrote on a board.....I don't have a clue anymore!

I can't figure out how to get a pic in, as there's only 2 options ~ host an image, or link an image.........

You have just posted four times in a row which is not permitted

Also be aware of what you seek to put in your signature that it is not advertising any product.....

Yes, first of all you need to host the image (The photo icon with the little disk on it), copy the 3rd link you get (direct one) and pasting it on your signature like this:

Code:
[img]Paste the link you just copied here[/img]

Sorry, I wasn't aware that I am not allowed to post 4 times in a row.
So, in this forum, am I not allowed to leave a signature which points to a business whatsoever? Really? So I cannot leave a link that points to my artwork, which is for sale?

Nor twice in a row unless separated by 24 hours please ...

I quote from Forum Rules

Oh, pardon me - I didn't wish to offend anyone - however, a backlink to product or a business is a courtesy for members to any forum. If this is not welcome, I believe I am in the wrong place, and must go elsewhere. I'd like to delete my account.

Good luck with your forum

With respect it all depends on what The Rules are on the particular Forum you happen to be on .....
??Have you come to this forum merely to seek to promote and advertise your 'Product'?

confused

There was nothing wrong with your signature, as long as it goes to a Facebook page, it is allowed. What we don't allow are external links, because if we do, this place will turn into an advertising market.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to add this information in the FAQ or somewhere?

I have been looking for the answer to why my signature doesn't show either. I guessed that you might have to make a certain number of posts as in some other forums I am a member of but it's useful to know what the rules are.

Hi Sandy,

Welcome to the forum. The aforementioned signature limit was implemented relatively recently due to spammers, and we haven't had time to update the official rules/getting started guide with this information yet. Thanks for letting us know; I will update it shortly.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Any other questions do let us know Happy
