BBcode Signatures: So I made a new signature
« on: March 30, 2018, 11:19:37 PM »
So I got Around to making a new signature for my account here after the longest time :p

You can use BBcode in your profile to create a signature. Spatry provides a tutorial below.

Looks good. Remember kids, graphics in signatures is fine as long as they are not overbearing.

Looks great! Reminds me that I need to set up another for my profile. Haven't had one since selling my old ROG laptop.

Are Steam Signatures not allowed anymore? it looks like url bbcode is no longer allowed in signatures.

I get this message when i try to use the url bbcode tag

The following errors occurred when trying to save your profile:
The following BBC is not allowed within your signature: abbr, acronym, anchor, code, email, flash, html, iurl, php, quote, size, table, url.

html seems to work though


Scratch that, html does not

BB Code does work with some limitations. As an example, DQSII used the following code in his signature:
Code: [Select]
[img]https://i.imgur.com/R7X3eWD.png[/img]
[img width=20 height=3]https://i.imgur.com/je5KHHH.png[/img]

Dirty Helga uses this code in her signature:
Code: [Select]
[b][color=pink]If you BREAK the [size=12pt]
[url=http://www.cupoflinux.com/SBB/index.php/topic,6.0.html]RULES[/url]
[/size],[/color][color=yellow] I WILL SHOOT YOU![/color][/b]
If you BREAK the RULES, I WILL SHOOT YOU!

I split the code snippets above so that they would have a decent appearance. You would want to do the code so that it is all in one long line rather than 2 or 3 lines. It all depends on the appearance you are looking for... As stated... You are welcome to use signatures as long as they are not distracting... Staff reserves the right to remove signatures which do not meet this guideline.

Now you know how to apply graphics, bold fonts, text size, color and urls... These features will allow you to do interesting things with your signature. This topic is being moved to forum support since it might help other member with their signatures....

SWEET!!! Now I can have my steam signature! Thank you good sir! I had to modify the code a little bit because URL tags aren't allowed, understandably. I hope it doesn't break the signature, though.

IT has been a long time since I used one but I am 90% sure that Steam does have smaller stream signatures for use on forums.

The one I was using was from a different website. I didn't know that steam actually hosted their own forum signatures? I'd love to have known that.

I think Spatry was talking about this

I can't get any of them to work though, since a lot of bbcode tags aren't allowed in signatures

You may need to do some modifications to the bbcode to get it to work.

I could just directly insert the image, but then it looses a lot of it's function, like the ability to go to my profile, update my recently played games, and show if I'm online or not.
