Well, I usually go to "User CP" and then to Edit Signature over on the left hand side. A box will come up where you can enter in what you want for your sig and the different options for font, color, etc. are at the top. You can either click on those drop down menus or make your own tags. For instance [COLOR=]*****[/COLOR]. Once you have things set, click on Preview Signature so you can see if there any mistakes and then click on Save Signature.

That's about it!

You can also highlight the text you want to make a color, a size, or whatever, and then click on the little icons on top of the text box where you type everything in.

When you think you have it figured out, you can hit "preview signature" and you'll be able to see it.

Another way to play around with the formatting is to go to "testing one two three" and post some messages to nobody in particular. It seems you've already figured out how to post messages and use the smileys

Thank you for the info on how to make my signature. All I really had to do was highlight the words I wanted to edit. Not so difficult Thanks for all of the replies.

Numnumom have you read the Signature Rules? You should not enlarge the size of the font dbeyond the default font size here on the boards.

Sure. :)  Up in the upper right hand corner you should see your name.  Click on that and it will take you to your profile.

 

Scroll all the way down.

 

You will see this section:

 

 

 

Click on the Edit Signature link (what the red arrow is pointing at) and that should give you a text entry field like a post to create your signature.  You can use smileys, but URLs will not hyperlink, just FYI.
