Hey, I've been with vistax64 forums for a while and have a modest reputation over there, so I'm pretty familiar with how these forums work. So I recently decided to go ahead and make an account over here at sevenforums too, but I'm having a problem with the custom sig and avatar creation.
First, over at vista forums, in the Edit Signature page, it has the same set of buttons that you get when you click Advanced Options when posting stuff; e.g. bold, italicize, align left/right/center, etc. But over here in the Edit Signature page, all I get is a big empty box where I can type. No color, font, size, or image options. It still has the upload section for a custom sig pic, but no way to actually put that in my sig. I tried manually putting the [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] that is is used at vistax64, but that didn't work either. Am I missing something, or do I need to have a certain amount of rep before I can do anything other than type plain text for a sig?
Second, for my avatar I have an animated gif I want to use, same as I do over at vista. I know a lot of you guys have one, but mine doesn't get animated when I upload it. It just stays a static image of the first frame. (I've changed it to a normal jpeg until I figure out how to get this to work.) Do I need to have a certain amount of rep before being allowed to have an animated avatar or what?
Thanks for the info
