Thanks to Photobucket, I need to redo my rotating signatures, but I'm running into some trouble.

I'm using universal sig rotator, and after I copy in the imgur urls for my sigs the images aren't showing up. Instead of a preview I see a broken image symbol. I checked and my imgur account is set to public, so it's not an account setting issues, as far as I can tell.

Secondly, I can't figure out the html coding to get my bumper and my sig rotator to work (though it's possible the above issue with universal sig rotator is the cause of this second issue). I can't remember what the code formatting for signatures is. I'm pretty sure there's probably a thread with an example of the coding, but I can't find it. If anyone can enlighten me on either of these issues I'd much appreciate it! Setting up rotating signatures 2869872805

Did you try saving the image from imgur on your computer, then uploading the image through the hosting service that the forum uses? I've been doing that, and the images are showing up fine.

I was going to use servimg but I didn't see a place to sign up for a new account on their website, only a log in option for existing members. That's why I went with imgur.

Which Imgur URLs are you using in your rotator? In my experience with using Grumpy Bumpers to rotate my sigs and avis, I've run into the same problem of broken images if I use the "Image Link" (the first one on the list of links Imgur gives you for each picture) instead of the "Direct Link" (which is second on the list, and is differentiated from the first in that it has the file extension name on the end, usually .png or .gif).

Hopefully this fixes your problem! This is likely the cause of your HTML formatting issues too, if this turns out to be the case. Let me know if it doesn't work and I have a few other ideas Smile

That worked! I got universal sig rotator to display the sigs. But I still have to figure out the coding for the forum. I think the coding I have right now is screwed up. Does anyone have an example I can refer to?

Did you try pasting the current URL of the now-fixed rotator in the "insert image" thing?

^ Yep, what Cosmos said! For reference, here is is a screenshot of what my signature looks like in Code Editor mode:

So the first link is my left bumper rotator, the second is just a direct link to my current signature, and the third is my right bumper rotator! Hope this helps Smile

Okay, I think I got it to work again...but there's a bit of a problem. The signatures aren't being rotated randomly as they should be. I'm not sure which part of my coding is wrong. Here's the coding that I have in my sig page:

That looks fine to me! And your signatures are being rotated as they should at least on my end, I refreshed this page a few times and got a different signature every time Smile

I'm not getting a new sig with each refresh, though when I leave and come back some time later to check the page again it reloads a new sig. Ah well, good enough. XD;; Thanks for everyone's help!
