How to add signature for phpBB

Postby Thernen » Mon Oct 23, 2006 10:31 pm

I have been trying to get my sig to work.

link is:

http://www.mysticsguild.net/roster/addo ... me=Thernen

When I try to copy this into the sig part of your account:

http://www.mysticsguild.net/roster/addo ... me=Thernen[/img]

All I see is the text above.

What am I doing wrong.

How to add signature for phpBB

Postby joehail » Tue Oct 24, 2006 2:12 am

what I did to fix this issue, and it works for all the forums that I use, is I looked in the wiki for the siggen and did a search for "htaccess"

There is an htaccess file that you can put in the root of the roster, or add to the one that is there, that will do a basic redirect that will make it so you can put in yoursite.com/roster/sig/name.png to show the sig and switch sig to av for the avatar.

hope this helps

You have to open the image tag with a [img] at the begining of that URL.

Most forum software will not allow images linked to .php
Try using "Save Image Mode" along with "auto generate on player update" or use mod_rewrite

Still not working. You think you could look at my setup and see what might be the problem?

Do what I said above

Have everyone update their character, because doing so will activate the saving of the image
Or if you cannot get everyone to upload,
Use these urls to generate a sig/avatar for every player
Code: Select all
http://www.mysticsguild.net/roster/addons/siggen/sig.php?name=CharName&saveonly=1

Code: Select all
http://www.mysticsguild.net/roster/addons/siggen/ava.php?name=CharName&saveonly=1

(Replace CharName with a character's name)
If you hit view source when going to that url, you can see the image will be saved as
Code: Select all
<!-- Image Saved: [roster/addons/siggen/saved/sig-CharName.png] -->

Code: Select all
<!-- Image Saved: [roster/addons/siggen/saved/ava-CharName.png] -->

(Full file structure removed)
Next, link to those saved images for your forums

I have already done this for your character

what I also found that worked was to make two different directories, on called sigs and one called avs, in the root of the addon folder. Then I set the siggen config to save the sigs and avaatars to those directories and just link them from there to PHPbb....
