I saw if the now locked thread an issue with too large pictures in signature.

I just wanted to mention for those who don't know it that it's possible to turn off signatures.
My controls -> Board settings -> "Do you wish to view members signatures when reading topics?" set to NO

It doesn't just filter out pictures but also any text. sad.gif
And turning off pictures completely also turns off smiley graphics. sad.gif

Personally I'd set a max sig size, it gets a bit annoying after 500x100 is exceeded. Just my two cents though.

Yeah, maybe Henrik can add that. If you don't mean it's an existing setting one can already make from "my control"?

Along with large signatures, does anyone know how to set line spacing?



Mine seem to be too many.



Any suggestions?

Ridiculously large.

Every forum that I've been to has had a 200px'ish height limit which is like 1/4 of what yours is now.

Sigs are meant to be more horizontal than vertical.

Examples of sigs I have made for previous forums:

no joke man! those are great!, and yes, sigs should be horizontal, but not too large, because it disorganizes the page, making it stretch horizontally as well. mellow.gif

I agree that some pictures are much to large - can the concerned users choose smaller ones?

Also - if anyone here knows where to change the settings for this in ipb board please pm me!
