Since I'm fairly new to the boards I'm not sure how my "posts" look.  I've changed a few things so I'm trying to see what I look like now.  Thanks for being patient!

I tlooked terrible, or so I thought!  So went to try and change and now I hope I didn't mess it up!  Going to try this again. 

By the way, I am trying to preview, but it's not working for me.  Sorry!

How do I insert an image in my posts? I know I can click on the icon and see the bracketed code for the image, but beyond that I don't see where or how I can upload one.

I don't think you can upload images here. The image in my signature are actually stored on my website, and I just use the img tag to point to the URL.

First you have to save your image to a photo sharing site such as Photobucket.  Once you have it saved there, you copy the "Direct Link" info and paste it in between the brackets.  Then you'll need to do a Preview to see if it worked, because it still won't show the actual picture in the box where you are typing.

Book in Signature
« Reply #9 on: July 12, 2011, 01:19:21 PM »
I really hope this is the right place for this question...if not, so sorry!!!

So, the book link in my sig line is so much smaller than everyone elses, but when I do the bigger link it took up the entire thread *yeah, people must have loved me for that 20 mins*

Is there a way to make it that standard size everyone elses seems to be?

THANKS SO MUCH

in the link.. at the beginning, it will say something like [img height=75... or 100..

if you change it to 125 that's the normal size most indies use.

Caitie--

In Link-Maker, there are three options--the first one, near the top, that says "To Make An Image Link," one to make a large image, about 500 pixels high, and one for a tiny image, about 75 pixels high.

It looks like you used the "tiny" option in Link-Maker.  This one automatically picks a very tiny image from the Amazon database.  (Changing the size on this one to enlarge it doesn't work well.)

You want to use the first one, near the top, that says "To Make an Image Link."  This will automatically pick a larger image from Amazon and set the size to be 125 pixels high, the proper size for our signature files.  

Create the link using Link-Maker, then replace all the code you currently have in your signature with the new code.

Don't hesitate to ask if you have questions!  :D

JChris-

I've fixed your signature, which was indeed too big, LOL! ;D

When you have more than one book cover in a signature, you need to make sure your cursor is next to and on the same line as the /url] at the end of the prior book cover before pasting the new cover.  If the cursor is on the next line, you've probably put in a return.  Note that sometimes, the length of the cover code will force the cursor onto the next line after you've pasted, but as long as the cursor is on the same line when yo hit paste, you should be good!

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.  (And I'll probably move your post away from the KB Song thread....)

Looks good so far, Karin!  Welcome to KindleBoards.

One thing, to keep signature heights reasonable for our members, we ask that there be no more than two lines of text total above or below the 125 pixel high cover images, so you can move the text next to your images using a table format.

Here's a brief tutorial.  There is a longer tutorial on signatures, including images, at:
http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,46766.0.html

Here's what you are aiming for, of course with actual cover urls where I have Cover Link 1 and Cover Link 2.  This example would have two cover images side by side, and three text comments stacked to the right of the covers.

[table][tr]
[td]Cover Link 1  Cover Link 2[/td] [td] Text comment 1
Text Comment 2
Text Comment 3

[/td]
[/tr][/table]

To get the text next to the cover images, you have to create a table.  You put the start table tag [table] at the beginning of the table, and the end table tag [/table] at the very end.  You can see those in blue in the code above.

Next you'll see the "table row" tags [tr] and [/tr].  You don't really need to put these in, the system software will put them in for you--your whole signature will generally be in one row.  Note that anything after the "end table" tag [/table] will appear below the table.

Here's the most important part--the table cells or columns.  Each cell or column has to begin with [td] and end with [/td]  You can see above, each cover link URL is between a set of the red td tags.

You can put several covers in the same table cell (or column) if you want, but the key thing is to have them all on the same line.  Do this by making sure the cursor is on the same line as the [/url] at the end of the prior cover link before pasting the new cover.

Second put all the text in their own cell, starting with a [td] and ending with [/td]

You can give it a try, unless it makes your head hurt too much.  I'm glad to help if you need it!  (Note that I've added a lot of code in the above example to get the colors in.)

Okay, they're in a row now. Betsey, how do I put a space in between? Do I do a table? I've got limited html knowledge so if you give me too much, I wind up like this.  :o

Rebecca--

Easy, peasy!  No need to do a table.  Just go back to the signature box, and between the "end url" tag [/url] at the end of the first cover and the "begin url" tag [url] at the start of the next cover, hit the spacebar.  (Not the "enter" or "return" key, which is what you were doing before!)

Let me know if you have any problems!

You were sooo close!  Just an extra set of [/tr] [tr] tags in your BBS code which forced your text onto the next row!  Fixed now, let me know if you need any other changes.

This is just a test. If this were the real thing, an oxygen mask would decent from the ceiling. Please look up. There should not be anything hanging over you head (except rental payments).

Actually, I'm only here to check my signature.

Testing one two three, testing one two three...after I create my signature, will it automatically appear on all my posts? Let's find out.

Novels about families & relationships, love & forgiveness....

To read excerpts visit my website  I blog, too, sometimes!

This has the look I want, but I can't get the covers to line up or the text underneath to left justify. Does anybody know how to fix? Thanks so much if you can help!  :)

There was an extra set of table & td tags in the middle that was throwing it off.  table tags need to be only at the very beginning and very end of the table.  The extra code is marked below in red:

It says that on all profiles, even mine. (and I have a few more posts ;) ) But, after that one post, on the left side of the page, click on "Forum Profile Information" under "Modify Profile. That should take you to where you want to go.

Tereh, it looks good!  One small thing--the maximum size per Forum Decorum for images is 125 pixels high.  So, use the very first image link if you are using link-maker in our top menu, or you need to put height=125 in the first set of img tags, like this:

I'm not seeing your avatar either, which means that probably the forum software is having a problem with your image.  (Sometimes members can't see their image but I can, which usually means they need to refresh their cached images.) 

The most common reason for the forum software to have a problem is if your image size is too large.  The max "display" size of the avatar image is 140 wide x 160 high in pixels.  If the image you upload or link to is larger than that, the forum software will try to resize it on the fly.  If your starting image is a lot bigger, it doesn't work.  Try resizing your image to be smaller and try the upload or link again. (EDIT:  looks like you uploaded an image?)

If you're not sure how to reduce the size, provide me a link to the image and I'll help!

Yes, it'll need to be considerably smaller.  :D  If you can get the total file size under 500KB, I think it'll work.  Smaller even better.

Hmm... why are my books one atop each other rather than side by side?  Also -- how can I get the affiliates links to attach to the cover images?

Thank you for your help...one of these days I'll get good at computers and they'll start using something else by then.

It just needed a minor tweak to put them in the same row (I removed a line break in your signature area). And the links were already set up properly. Nicely done!
