First of all you will need to get yourself a photobucket account which you can do by going here:
Now, there are restrictions on the sig you can have. The guidelines to the sig you can use are set out here:
Next you will need to find the picture you wish to use as your sig. You can do this by searching Photobucket for the pic you want to use or you can visit here:
Diva's By Design Signature Thread.
For visual aid to the following steps, please visit this page:
Ebay ME Page
Now there is two ways to upload the picture you wish to use depending on where you got it.
If you are using the photobucket search facility, you can upload the picture you want to use straight to your photobucket account by clicking on the picture. You then need to click on "save image to my album", this is located just above the picture. The picture will then be added to your album and will be ready to use.
If you visit the tag thread and request a sig you will need to right click on the sig when it has been posted for you and save to your computer using the "save as" option. After you have saved the sig to your computer log into your photobucket account. To upload the picture you will need to click on "Browse" and then click on upload.
Once the picture has uploaded to your album you will need to use the HTML Code. Click on the line marked HTML Code, then right click and copy.
Once you have the HTML Code copied, come back to the Ebay Boards.
At the top of each board on the right hand side you will see "Watches/Settings".
Click on settings. This will bring you to a new page where you will see a little box. This is where you will insert the HTML Code. Click inside the box, then right click and paste.
Now, sigs are not allowed contain Link backs so you will need to remove some of the HTML code.
The part you will need to remove is this:
<a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank">
If you wish to leave a gap between your post and your sig then you will need to put
<br> before the HTML Code.
If you wish to centre your sig the you will need to put <center> before the HTML Code and </center> after it.
You should then have the following in your settings box:
<br><center>HTML Code here</center>
<br><center><img src="http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l19/angel_deemarie/Tags/Secretary%20Tags/1pb.png" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a></center>
Make sure you click on the save option beneath the settings box or you will end up having to go through the whole process again.
If you have any queries or need any additional help, just give me a shout.
I can be found on either the New To Ebay board on the UK board or at the Diva's By Designs tag thread.
I hope this guide helps, thank you for reading it xxx.
