Signature and Avatar Pics

Post by Pugsley » Fri Oct 06, 2017 9:20 pm

Need some assistance to get pics in for my signature, like I used to have before photobucket eliminated 3rd party hosting. I have an Imgur account. Thanks in advance for the help!

Imgur doesn't allow 3rd party hosting (What PB did, where you can embed pictures on forums, or host your sig file).

The closest I've found for free is flickr, but you can't get img links via the mobile app - which sucks for me, I do 97% of my computing via phone. They do have img links via the full site, but you really have to hunt for it.

My sig is still on photobucket. I have no idea why it still works.

Yup, just close the tags using a /

Should look like this:
