Hi so i thought i would chime in quickly and tell you guys how to create a picture signature, how to remove picture signatures from being viewed, how to insert pictures to a thread, and how to edit the forum settings for your preference.
Quoting a User
To Quote a user simply hit reply underneath the user you wish to quote, this will bring up a quick reply text box. Once this is up select "Use Rich Formatting"
Once you have the the Rich Formatting editor up you should see the users post and the option to quote the user underneath. Hit the Quote link and it shall pop the quoting code into your post automatically. View this screenshot for where the quote button is:
First of all we will show you how to view the forums settings, and to remove signatures from view. simply point your web browser to http://forums.xbox.com/user/settings.aspx and you will come across this page:
Here you can find the usual forum settings from the older forum, but with more options like "display user signature" simply toggle to your preference and your good to go.
Making Forum Signatures
Once you have this code simply point your browser back to the Forums Settings page and paste that code into the signature area. Animated .GIF images work too, heres my example of sonic the hedgehog running:
Adding images to a thread
To add an image to a thread post, simply follow the steps for making a forum signature, except the size. Make sure your image isn't too big i recommend you keep it under 650 pixels wide and 500 in height. Upload your image to a hosting site like Photobucket.com and retrieve the [*IMG] sharing code.
Once you have that code simply paste it into the text box of the post you are making and you are good to go. Animated .GIF's work in posts too.
