    It is also possible to make a signature without having a data source. But then you will have to save the image and upload it to a server of your choice.

    For PHP programmers:
    If you want your forum-host to be available as a data source, and if you have enough knowledge of PHP to make a script that can extract the data; you can contact me. I can also provide an example script.
    thanks so much!!!!

    Thanks for this, I appreciate it.

    I had tried to hotlink the LOTRO image here of the hobbit into it and it keeps as a gray icon...any ideas? (The avatar I use here.)

    The problem here is that the script add http:// to the link. Meaning that u are not able to use a httpS:// link. The only workaround I can think of, is to upload that image to a site which u can link to. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    This generator is awesome and I'm just about done creating mine, but I was wondering if it was possible to add in an upload feature for the char image instead of just a url link. I'm sure that the problem BlueScion has run into will start to become more prevalent as websites start to switch over to secured http, which isn't supported by your own scripting. Just a thought to upload our own images without having to link to an 'outside' source.

    The image upload would be nice, since I have no clue where to put my image to link it. The image I have on my GP site doesn't show up either if I use the GP setting for the signature. Any help would be appreciated.

    Ok, disregard the last post I sent, got it figured out, now just have to be able to get the signature to work in the forums. As you can tell I'm not a computer person.

    I'm having a bit of trouble as well since the forums don't allow image uploading. I put my sig image in my dropbox and used: [img]link to image file on dropbox[/img]. So far it only gives me a blank line in the sig itself.....

    Some sites don't allow remote image linking, i think drop box is one of them, it's for storing files for downloading, not remote linking.

    You need to use either your a web host with image linking enabled or a dedicated image site like photobucket or imageshack etc and use the direct links they provide.

    I can only agree that the option to upload an image from ur pc would be easier in many cases. I have no idea how to do this. But on the other hand, I had no idea how to handle images like the generator do before I started on this project The generator was primarily made to be used with a data source like GuildPortal. And with such, a pc upload would not work. Also, when the user don't have a data source, they need to know how to upload an image anyway. The option to have no data source was kind of just an after-thought which I added. It should be possible for me to make the image-link work with https as well. Which I will put on my to-do list. Sadly I don't know when I will get this done. I can only work in random periods, because of a stress related problem. This is actually the first real project I have managed to do since about 6 years ago. Which for me is incredible great news in it self

    Hmm. I managed to grab the wrong quote from u, Hilrond. Anyway. It could be interesting to know where u got stuck. So that I maybe could change things to prevent other from getting stuck the same place. And great that u managed to make it work in the end

    I see you are using java and html so it shouldnt be too hard to add in another switch on the data source (like you did with the differences between the two types of sources) to bring up a table row with a FileUpload object (http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/dom_obj_fileupload.asp) in it. Don't forget to limit what people can upload to only image file types and (I'm not sure if this can be done with the html upload object), if possible, to only 1 file.

    This may end up being too heavy on your end without some major coding time and garbage collection (to remove pictures after they are no longer needed), so maybe my initial zeal was ill-conceived and I'm sorry for that.

    Don't be sorry for throwing in ideas

    What concerns me most is that u haven't made ur own sig-image work yet. I guess u just haven't had time to choose a working file-host for it. As Edrogar points out, DropBox doesn't work for this.

    I just havent had time to find a service that I already have a login for that would host it for free and will keep it around until I decide to remove it (unlike photobucket or something else like that).

    You have to have a character on your roster in GuildPortal. If you do, go to the roster link of your site, click to edit your character, expand the pop-up page so that you can see the whole link. At the end of the link will be 'CharId=' followed by a number. That number is your character ID.

    Question Signature appearance

    Sorry to bother, but I cannot seem to get my signature to appear as it should, how do I code it into the signature edit area properly? Should I have it saved on a website before linking it (that's what I did).

    Also, I don't understand how to find my character's ID, I did read the instructions below the Generator.

    Thanks for your time,
    Ines

    U only need the character-ID if u have a GuildPortal (GP) account. In which case u copy the code below the image to use elsewhere. There are several posts before this that will explain how to find the ID.

    Most don't have a GP account. In which case u need to copy the image itself and upload it as u already did. Though the one u have now looks a bit truncated And looking through the html code it seams ok. Maybe u got hold of the thumbnail link. So try this code instead:
    HTML Code:

    Please feel free to ask again if u are stuck still.

    Yes, I used the first Thumbnails option; the website only gave me Forum thumbnail, hotlink, and website thumbnail options - which option should I have taken?

    Thanks, I will look through this thread for the GP instructions and I applied the code you suggested, it works (as you can see). (^-^)

    though I can't see the codes for ur three options, their names implies to me that non are any good. So what u have to do is: Go the page where u can see the full image, right-click the image and select properties. Select and copy the "address (url)" to use at the forum and add [img] [/img] tags around it. That should work. At this forum u can also just hit the "Insert Image" button up top and past the url there.

    I guess by "it" and "it" u mean the signature-image?!

    First u need to save the image to ur own PC, which is explained on the generator page. Then u must choose an image host that allow linking to the image. Could be Photobucket or Imageshack. U have to make a free account on whichever site u choose. Then follow their instructions on how to upload the image to their site. And they will also provide u with a link to the image which u can use here on the forum.

    Don't hesitate to ask again if u still are stuck or should get stuck again at some point.

    Glad u like it

    Notice that I/we can't see your sig because your url doesn't work. Seams the number in the url is randomly generated each time u view the image. And I can't see any way around it on the image host u have chosen. They only offer a link to the page showing the image. I'm afraid you'll have to find another host that allow linking directly to the image.
