Signature picture not working

Post by step_change » Tue Feb 27, 2018 1:49 pm

How do I do my signature picture please guys? I have my picture within the size limits and I am hosting the picture on my own dropbox with public access. However, no matter what I do I keep getting error messages saying it can't check the size of the picture and to check my URL. The URL is public and is 100% correct... I can check it in a browser and up it comes.

Does Z4 forum, support https fetch of the picture?

This is the picture:

looks a little too big for a sig - has to be 150 x 600 pixels max
I use this free website for resizing my pics: http://resizeimage.net/

Your pic is over 150 pixels high - I have resized it:
Right click on picture and 'save picture as . . . ' then use that saved pic to upload to your hosting site and link to it as before

Thanks Marlon. Ok uploaded to to my own site because Dropbox does not appear to work.

... proves the picture is being served up.

Still doesn't work as a signature though - I just get the URL. Tried on Tinypic as well. No joy. I'll scratch my head for a bit and come back to it later... :)

UPDATE:
It appears to be a bug on this Z4 website. That image is working fine on other forums.

I’m using https and I never have been able to get an embedded url to work on this forum...

This is despite the same url works on many other B.B. that use the s@me s/w.

I’ve reported it several times, no joy..other sites show that depending how updates to the B.B. s/w are done this bug occurs...

I have just followed Marlons advice and used http://resizeimage.net/ to resize the image, although I need to alter mine slightly. And then I have used imgBB.com (free) as a third party site to host the image. Hope this is helps.
