Signature link problem

Postby Satis » Sat Feb 03, 2007 12:41 pm

Okay the problem is that I used an link before to get my signatore postet on an forum before. the link is:
http://www.brotherhood.dk/roster/addons ... tissis.png

It have worked fine from the first day I setup siggen and not today it wont show enymore.
Then I tryed to change it to an Jpeg and I only got an blank page 2.
I tryed gif and bmp extension the, then i worken again, but only for gif and bmp.

It's the only signature I have problem with, since my other character is shown perfectly with the png extension:
http://www.brotherhood.dk/roster/addons ... atisma.png

The av.php works normaly, so it only the sig.php I have problem with..

Any sugestions ??

They are showing just fine for me

Although, you did give me an idea about the extension thing
I think I'm going to make it so when you access sigs this way, whatever extension used, SigGen will render it that way

hmmm you are actualy right on this one :scratch:
When I tryed to type ind the link in IE 6.0 the it shows just fine.
but if I use Firefox, then the problen okures :scratch:

hmmm

It might just be my browser :???:

and the problem is that i love firefox. :ff:

Oh and I have another question about the link as well.
The 2 other link I posted before, the goes fine into an image tag on phpbb forums like
Code: Select all
[img]link[/img]


how do you do that with this link:
http://www.yoursite.com/roster/addons/s ... p?name=Bob

When I try using it, there is no picture unless you put the link inside the address bar.

Most forums don't allow .php as an image

oh okay ^^

An sugestion for the siggen then ^^

Make an linksection so the user can get the link to there sig file and avatar file, like this one.
www.brotherhood.dk/roster/addons/siggen ... hechar.png

now the why part.

In my guild we have some character name with special characters, like Æ Ø Å
They are showen on a funny way in the sig directory and they will never be able to guess the file name for them to use.
so by making the link for them, that they can go in the roster and get the link directly copy and pase it where they are needing it ^^

When I ran in the same problem I've added the following
lines to my .htaccess file.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^avatar/(.*)\.png$ /roster/addons/siggen/siggen\.php\?name\=$1&mode\=avatar&saveonly\=0&etag\=0
RewriteRule ^banner/(.*)\.png$ /roster/addons/siggen/siggen\.php\?name\=$1&mode\=signature&saveonly\=0&etag\=0


That means everyone can link to his avatar or banner with his name easily.

They dont exist on the server but are rewritten by apache to
use the long url instead

By the looks of it, it seems like it should go into the root dir
