How do I add a signature?

Posted on 12/23/2009 4:56:48 PM PST by 3boysdad

Most have a signature after their screen name in their posts. I can't figure out how to do this and I am not new to forum formats and basic computer skills, but I must admit that FreeRepublic is unique. Can someone please tell me how to do this...

At the bottom of the box where you put your reply, theere is a box for a TAGLINE. Put your “signature” there.

You are right. FR is unique. That is why we call signatures “taglines.”

Merry Christmas!

Some of those are done with HTML, some people use image links.

I don’t bother I just use the tagline. *see below

When you post a reply you can add a tagline.

You just had to ask. You couldn't leave well enough alone. Now you've gone and done it. You're in for it now.

First, read mine and answer the questions.

Okay, next question:

P.S. Oh wow! I just noticed my tagline stayed the same as last time... no need to retype!

Why do you feel the need to be one of the gang?

I think one's individuality can be better expressed on this forum by refusing to follow the lemmings who also wish to have a tag line simply because everybody else does.......I guess it gives them a sense of belonging, similar to the descriptive head bands or tattoos that the gangstas such as the crips, or bloods or MS-13 dudes wear.

Word of warning tho, once you have chosen to include a tag-line, you are an official member of the FReeper-Doobies and you WILL be required to suffer your initiation and pay your dues..........

Just think about it........

ROTFLOL! In order to put italics, you must use html coding. For italics it is <i>. To end italics use </i>.

Yes. Yes. Those were fun. Any more?

Once you have those two right (and CONGRATULATIONS, BROTHER!), you don't need any more, because they presage faith in Jesus and His work.

PS I also believe He is a rewarder of those who earnestly seek Him.

Fixed it.

No. When you create the post, it’s one, it never benign.

You take a feather from an Eagle which you must pluck only by climbing down the side of as mountain to it’s nest. After having said feather in hand use razor to cut the point. Buy a small jar of Mont Blanc ink (only the best will do.) Voila, you now have the finest writing instrument good for signing the Declaration of Independence.
