    Your control panel is your own private AllAlias.com friend You will find it very useful. You can change how AllAlias.com looks and feels as well as your own information from here.

    Edit Profile Info

    This section allows you to add or edit your contact information and enter some personal information if you choose. All of this information is optional and can be omitted.

    Edit Signature

    A board 'signature' is very similar to an email signature. This signature is attached to the foot of every message you post unless you choose to check the box that allows you to ommit the signature in the message you are posting. You may use BB Code in your signatures.

    Please read the signature rules by clicking here

    Edit Avatar Settings

    An avatar is a little image that appears under your username when you view a topic or post you authored. Youmay either choose from the premade avatars gallery, enter a URL to an avatar stored on your server or upload an avatar to use. You may also set the width of the avatar to ensure that it's sized in proportion. The max size is 90x90. Read the full rules here.

    Email Settings

    Hide my email address allows you to deny the ability for other users to send you an email from the board.
    Include a copy of the post when emailing me from a subscribed topic, this allows you to have the new post included in any reply to topic notifications.

    Board Settings

    From this section, you can set your timezone, choose to not see users signatures, avatars and posted images.
    You can choose to get a pop up window informing you when you have a new message and hide the long session ID in links (see the 'Cookies' help file for more infomation on this).

    Change Email Address

    At any time, you can change the email address that is registered to your account. In some cases, you will need to revalidate your account after changing your email address. If this is the case, you will be notified before your email address change is processed.

    Change Password

    You may change your password from this section. Please note that you will need to know your current password before you can change your password.

    View Subsciptions

    This is where you manage your topic subscriptions. Please see the help file 'Email Notification of new messages' for more information on how to subscribe to topics.

    First, you need to upload the pic and get its URL address. Once you have that, you can put it in your signature by doing this:

     [img] INSERT URL ADDRESS HERE [/img]

    s vs v, right click on the image you want to use for your sig, then, go to properties -----------> highlight and copy URL address -----------> pastre between image tags in your CP

    If that doesn't work, you can send me (or any other staff member) the sig or its URL and we'll insert it for ya
