The signature line appears in the text of the post you're making all the time when you're previewing it, but doesn't show up when you actually submit the post. To make it show, you have to select the "Add signature to this post" check box on the first page of the post/reply page before you select "Continue" to preview your post.

Once you've previewed your post once, the "Add signature" box is not available at the next screen. You have to do it on the first visit.

I am a republican, I drive a Jetta TDI. My wife is a hardcore democrat, she drives a Navigator and just wouldn't settle for something more sensible. I rest my case.

YMMV

Well is this appropriate? It is his signature.
No it's not appropriate. It's obviously political. No political signatures or avatars.
but some others will find away around the rules to stick in their political views and their party affiliation in a non-political board.

Well, the election is over. Kerry has conceded. Bush has won. And not only did Bush win the Electorial College, he also won the Popular vote.

Come on... save this for a political forum. It only get's people pissed of at each other.

I agree. I was interestedly following someones post until I saw his right-wingnut tag line and immediately felt angry rather than paying attention to the topic. It creates an urge to repy to the signature rather than the post. It's a slippery slope from there: chairs flying, cops called, ugly.

Thanks for bringing up a DEAD thread.

5 MONTHS OLD!
No prob. For you, any time! Seriously, though, It was a new thread to me since I had never seen it before. I've read many of the forums here and seen threads picked back up after many months. Haven't seen anyone flamed for it. Although you are a "vetran" there are "newbies" entering the fray every day. I would say that in the spirit of free exchange of ideas you might consider being a bit less grumpy and a bit more welcoming. I certainly had no intention of momentarily annoying you. You act like I just told your girlfriend about the stag party that she had already forgotten about.

Hmm. Ok. But Kerry would drive a TDI and Bush would certainly drive a Lincoln Navigator.
If that is true then why does Kerry own a Suburban? Oh, that's right, it's not his truck. It's his wifes.


Kerry is rich, just like Bush. So Kerry will only drive large, luxurious vehicles. Just like Bush. And all the other rich people in America.

IIRC, Kerry drives a new Chrysler 300. Not exactly the most fuel efficient vehicle on the market.

See above for a prime example of why Fred doesnt want politics on his TDIclub page. Kudo's to you Fred. Politics suck....TDI's rule!!

ALL politicians are worthless, useless sub human pieces of filth. I rest my case. One is no better than the other. Let us move on.

Kinda like "A Red state near you"? :p

Hmmm ... I remember when being Red meant something totally different.

Okay, what am I doing wrong. When I try to point to the URL and click OK I get a message that says that uploads have been disabled.

When you look at the screen to edit your Avatar, you have two boxes, one atop the other. The top box is where the picture would be and it has a radio button that is marked.

The lower box has another radio button that says, "Use Custom Avatar" Click that button on the bottom and see if that works.

That is what I was doing, but when I click OK I get: "Remote file uploads have been disabled." I'm not trying to upload it, just post the link to it that is on a public web server.

TCBaker,

I got the same message and all that but just ignore it. The important part is that it is in the current avatar screen. Previously it said no image.

Go back to your User CP and see if something is in the picture field. If it is there, then you are set.

As opposed to putting in the web address of the server that had the image I did an upload from my local drive and it worked. Not exactly what I wanted to do, but it worked.

Thanks

I am getting the same thing - I am just trying to point it at my old avatar on pics.tdiclub.com. It gives me the error message, but nothing shows up. Do I have to wait or something?

Fred, when I tried linking to our picture server for this thumbnail .gif image, it says that remote hosting is not supported:
http://pics.tdiclub.com/data/500/thumbs/vtg-sequenz.gif

What's wrong?

I shrunk the gif down also and get the same result from uploading.

I see other members have .gif avatars; how do I get mine to work? Need clearer directions for the non computer guru I am, please.

Thanks.

Nick
