Signature problem
Posted by Tarasdad on Wednesday, July 2, 2014 7:25 PM

I'm trying to edit my signature but when I make a change I get red error text stating that only 512 characters are allowed. The problem is that according to Word I'm only using 107 characters. There is definitely something wonky going on here.

I too need to post an issue with my Signature Block: When I post a 'badge' icon in my signature block, I alway right click and 'UNLINK' the badge. I thought that this severed the link between the object and Photobucket, BUT, recently, I was cleaning up my Photobucket and deleted a badge and lo and behold, it dissappeared from my signature block right away. Anyone know why?

Not sure if something got changed or if it was just a temporary hiccup but my sig issue is fixed.

Hi, Rob,

If you deleted the file in Photobucket, I'm pretty sure that's why you don't see it in your signature anymore, or anywhere else you may have linked it.  Photobucket hosts the actual file, and we just link back to it, from other locations throughout the Internet.  If you delete the file at Photobucket, the link still exists, but there's no longer anything for that link to display.  Moving a file at Photobucket has the same effect--the image the link specifies is no longer where the link expects to find it.

I hope that clarifies that particular issue.

Best regards,

Brad

Brad..thanks, I get that, but, why do we right-click then "unlink" a photo. I seems to me, by executing that command,  you are severing the link back to PB, so, no worries. I dunno, just seems strange to "unlink' and nothing happens.
