Thread: Forum Signature

  1. #1

    Default Forum Signature

    Ok, as you can see below this post I am having trouble with my signature. It says I have html turned on, but obviously it's not working. I tried posting my "geo-stats" bar from GC.com.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Sorry I can't help you Dave but I'm sure one of the more techie folks in here could oblige. I can't remember now how I got mine to read correctly.

    You lost some of the code needed for your stat bar. Go the Geocaching.com website and go to Home > My Account > My Stat Bar. You will see a bunch of code. Be sure to get all of it.

    1. Make sure you are logged on to geocaching.com

    2. Go to http://www.geocaching.com/my/statbar.aspx

    3. Copy all of the HTML in the box at the bottom of that page.

    It should look similar to this:
    Code:
    <a href="http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=723550e3-c122-459f-9b40-185ef41359d7" target="_blank"><img src="http://img.geocaching.com/stats/img.aspx?txt=Let's+go+geocaching&uid=723550e3-c122-459f-9b40-185ef41359d7&bg=1" border="0" title="Profile for brdad" alt="Profile for brdad"></a>
    4. Go to user control Panel in GeocachingMaine.org - http://www.geocachingmaine.org/forum/usercp.php

    5. Cick on Edit Signature on left

    6. Paste the HTML into that box and Save

    brdad : 3. Copy all of the HTML in the box at the bottom of that page.

    Just as a side note, you can probably ignore all of that except for the actual image at:
    http://img.geocaching.com/stats/img....0-185ef41359d7

    The rest of it just makes the image itself into a link to your geocaching.com profile, which (while sometimes conceivably useful) seems unneccessary just to stick your stats in a sig.

    [edited] - Okay, ignore that, I can't get the stupid thing to even say "hello world", so what do I know? But you shouldn't need more than just the image itself.

    This is what you need to cut and paste into you signature. This is your code.

    PHP Code:
    <a href="http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=4b4b4c86-0c65-4e89-acd4-c89e13406b8a" target="_blank"><img src="http://img.geocaching.com/stats/img.aspx?txt=Let's+go+geocaching&uid=4b4b4c86-0c65-4e89-acd4-c89e13406b8a&bg=1" border="0" title="Profile for MoxieMan" alt="Profile for MoxieMan"></a

    I think it needs all, or most of it because the image is not static. It is generated by gc.com as it is accessed.

    As far as message, just edit the default textwhere it says:
    txt=Let's+go+geocaching
    change it to
    txt=Hello+World
    Note that you need a plus sign between the words.

    If you change &bg=1 to &bg=1, you will ge a signal the frog picture instead of the groundspeak logo.

    Okay...this is geting more frustrating...

    ATTROL: I cut and paste the line of code you put there...and you can see the results. I actually had cut and paste brdad's code line at one point and I had his stat bar in my signature. Grrrrrrrr!

    Change the last third to the last character: >a> should be <a> and it will work!

    Since you were getting frustrated I went into your profile and did it for you. I hope you did not mind?
