Please, help me for a picture on my signature!
I go to sighost or whatever. Registered and am at
"sigadmin 1" and all that, but when I try to put in the adress and upload, it says possible file:attack. And that's all it does! Help!
Help! :confused:

Are you uploading from your harddrive or from a site where you found the pic? I think you can only upload from your own harddrive.

just wait a while and try it again later.

I have a pic on my sig for sure, always have one. Makes the whole sig meaningful...but you sure have to have those pics saved on your own hardrive, or on a private site you or someone else mainains to host your prospective and used sig pics. Collecting pics is quite a hobby, too.

Lots of us change our sig banners often just for the fun of it. Sorta a competition sometimes for the most fascinating and different banners.

Anyone ever tried that idea here for a bit of interest? :)

First save the picture to your hard disk drive, then upload it from there. You cannot upload a picture from another web server. :)

Well, I guess I'll try it the old way and see if it works. I couldn't find anywhere to upload it. Is "sighost" some other server out there in the ether or something, or is it part of the forum?

There's a free server for hosting three different sigs (.gif or .jpg) and hotlinking to them. Here's the URL: http://www.yoursighost.com
