    ok I know a lot of people always ask how to use their sigs and avs, so I decided to make this little instruction guide so maybe we don't have like a million bajillion posts with the same instructions in the other threads. ;)


    First of all, you need to request a Signature/avatar in the Signature Requests/Avatar Requests thread. (or you could use a premade avatar, or make one of your own)



    If you make your own avatars/signatures/wallpapers:

    Uploading Rules

    Uploads MUST be related to Alias (exceptions: Sigs and avs ONLY if you use them) and MUST be NON-huge files. If you would like an exception, please PM a team member or Charlie (founder of AllAlias.com).

    How do I upload?
    First, know where the file you want to upload is on your computer. Then, when replying or starting a new topic in a forum with uploading turned on (like this one), under the "enter your post" space is a "file attachments" space. Click "Browse" and navigate to your file, select it, and hit OK. Then submit your post.


    How to use them once they are on the 'net.
    • For sigs:

      1. Right click the uploaded image (or any picture on the Internet, but it must follow the Signature Rules. If the picture is saved on your computer, go to Add Reply>Browse, and choose the file you want to upload)
      2. A menu will pop up, go to Properties
      3. Copy the URL there
      4. Go to My Controls>Edit Signature. Paste that URL in tags in your sig settings.
      [/list]It should look like this but with the URL for [i]your[/i] sig
      [code][IMG]http://forums.allalias.com/uploads/post-27-1046480237.gif[/code]

      got it? ^_^
      • For Avs:

        1. If you have your own, you can upload it in ur av settings by finding it on your hard drive.
        2. If you have one made, right click the uploaded image, and go to properties again.
        3. Copy and paste the URL in ur av settings in the location box. Only post the URL, no IMG tags this time. ;)

        or

        You could use a premade avatar. Go to My Controls>Edit Avatar Settings, and there, you can choose from a variety of premade avatars.
      Hope this helps a little.

    it should have tags around it.....the things above where you type in ur sig......

    [img]http://forums.allalias.com/uploads/post-27-1049252448.jpg
    it seems to be working so just copy and past this code into ur sig settings since you can't do the tags...
