I need help on linking images in my sig to other pages of mine. I've seen this in admin's sigs but viewing their source only confused me. What do I do? Necropaxx (T) {~} 19:03, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't have any idea myself, I've had a brief play with your sig code trying to use what I've seen in say, Savethemooses's sig but I couldn't get it to work either. Perhaps if Spang or some other codey type person is feeling helpful they might be able to help you out. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 02:06, 10 June 2007
I turned on the Bradasignal a while ago. He should be here soon. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:32, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
Not if I get here first!
You normally use an external link, and set an image as the link text. For example, [ http://linkdirectlytoimagefile.jpg], the first part is the link, the second part (after the space) is the link to the image file. You can't resize the image though, so it has to be the right size already.
The other way to do it is with an image map. See here and here for examples of how to use it. Spang talk 05:23, 10 Jun 2007
But do it the non-imagemap way, as the imagemap way adds a little white "i" in a blue circle to the displayed pic (see the pics on the right side of my userpage, which is probably not what you want. Odd that the Bradasignal attracts a Spang. I wonder what the Spagnal attracts. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:28, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
I've no idea what that would attract.
You can switch off the link to the image description page by adding desc none as a parameter, like this. (It just occurred to me that you may have wanted the description links on your userpage... revert if that's the case!) SpangSock! 05:38, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
Ah. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:50, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
MO, it wasn't the Bradasignal that called the Spang. I sent up the Spagnal in my first comment. Sheesh :P ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 05:47, 10 June 2007
I'm only here because I saw the MOgnal. It was adorable. What's your excuse? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:50, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
I saw a noobsel in distress :) ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 05:52, 10 June 2007
I took my car to the mechanic once because it wouldn't idle. It turned out to be a broken noobsel. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:55, 10 June 2007 (UTC)
Figures. Those darn noobsels. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 05:57, 10 June 2007

Everyone relax! I've returned from my family reunion trip. Also, I have no idea how to answer your question. Sannse taught me how, and I'd have to look it up at my User:Bradaphraser/sig page, and I'm just too lazy to do it right now, as I'm about to go to bed.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 03:47, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Thanks so far guys, but as you can see the external link hasn't worked so far and threw my sig completely out of whack. I need help fast, before a certain admin finds out and unleashes the ban stick. Necropaxx (T) {~} 16:43, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

I edited your sig. Is that what you wanted? —rc (t) 16:55, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Rc. It's great. Maybe in return I'll nom you for NotM. Necropaxx (T) {~} 18:13, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
That'll make it three months in a row! New record! —rc (t) 05:21, 12 June 2007 (UTC)
