    States visited map in signature

    So I was asked where I got the map in my signature for states visited. I did it here:

    http://www.epgsoft.com/VisitedStatesMap/

    I don't see an option in the forums profile settings to upload a signature picture, so I saved it on Photo Bucket and added the link to my signature.

    This post may be a good candidate for a sticky post so it stays at the top of the board for all new comers to the forum.

    Help! :-\

    I followed your instructions and added my map to Photo Bucket and then got lost as to what link I should use. When I use the Photo Bucket URL for that map photo in my signature line the photo didn't appear only the text of the URL.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Kathy,

    In Photobucket, when you're looking at the photo, along the top there are several buttons for sharing, like Facebook, Twitter, etc. One button looks like to two links of a chain. Click that and it provides several types of links. Copy the one titled "IMG Codes (for forum boards)".

    The link has to be inside the [IMG] tag to be displayed. So the forum will display an example, I changes the brackets (e.g. - [ and ]) for the tags to asterisk (*).

    *IMG*http://i104.photobucket.com/albums/m...8045.jpg*/IMG*

    Chris also mentioned that he is upgrading the forum to vBulletin software, which does have a signature picture upload option. Hopefully, Chris will enable this option when he switches to the software.

    :-\ I followed your instructions but instead of a map only the actual link surrounded by *IMG* shows in my profile. Guess I'll have to wait for Chris to change forum software to add the map.

    :-[ DUH!!!

    Tim... I was taking you literally and replacing the brackets surrounding IMG with *! The map has now appeared in my profile but it's much too big. I'll have to go back to PhotoBucket and see if I can reduce it.

    Big thanks for walking me through this process.

    Re: States visited map in signature

    So a question for all of you. What do you consider "states visited"? Do you mean in your lifetime, or where you've taken an RV in your lifetime, or your current RV?

    I'm thinking it would be where I've taken an RV, whether with my current rig or not.
