I've used vBulletin forums before, but I can't seem to find the place where you create a signature. I looked in the Profile settings and it doesn't seem to be there.

If you go to Forum Actions on the top menu and select Edit Profile, it is on the Left-hand side of the screen. It is the third one down under My Settings.

Also, IIRC, signatures won't show until a user has made at least 10 posts?

Ah, I didn't realise it prevented you from even filling it in - thanks for that info!

Hello,

This is a pretty standard vbulletin forward.....is there a limit on characters in signature file?

Thanks
Mike Williams

Hi Mike, welcome to the forum!

Yes, the character limit varies depending on seniority - the Gurus get a longer signature than newer members. Members with less than 10 posts don't get a signature at all, as it's a favourite of spammers and we need users to prove they're 'real' users first.

It's under "Settings" at the top of looks like any page in the forum. I can't comment on the "10-post" rule, though.

If you're not seeing the Settings panel like this:

Then I'd be fairly confident that this is part of the 10-post anti-spam feature, but Victoria needs to confirm that.

Yes the anti-spam signature is still in action, but the number of posts varies these days.

Interesting! It seems signature spammers are now asking for help in setting up their signatures... :D

LOL I know, you were so polite! And he wasn't an obvious spammer - I just have ways and means and tracking people's activity across the web.

Hello,

I am a newbie in this forum and in LR.
Do I have to understand signature appears only after some posts in this forum ?
If yes, where can I create my signature ?

Thanks

Regards

Hi gillesdebda, yes, that's right. I can't remember how many posts before you get a signature - I think it's 10. Once you've passed the 10 post mark, you'll see it in your profile settings.

...and to reinforce the concept, the signature rule isn't intended to discount the value of newcomers, but to discourage spam advertising and Search Engine Optimization tactics embedded in signature links.
