hello! It would seem that the signatures are limited in their character length. How can I extend the character limit?

Signatures have limit of 255 symbols like the 'user_custom2' field in database, which is VARCHAR type. So, you need to update this field to TEXT type, also to update 'maxlength' in profile's form.

Hey guys I'm having trouble with the signature addon. I've done everything in the readme and double checked everything.

My problem is the signatures are not displayed. The edit preferences area seems to work fine althought I have not verified that sigs are being saved in the database (although they appear to be)

I'm thinking my problem may line with adding user_custom2 into the userInfoInPosts array. I have the following:


I'm using user_custom1 for avatars.

And what about adding {$userInfo_user_custom2[$poster_id]} in templates/main_posts_cell.html? What version of miniBB are you using? This is available only beginning from the version 2.0 RC2b.

2.0RC3 but you're exactly right. Some how I was editing the wrong file. I was editing main_post_closed.html.

Hey there people,
I must say I'm very enthusiastic about MiniBB. The people behind it and the plugin creators deserve a great applause.

But although I have a question:
Is it possible with the signatures plugin to display all signatures in italic?

Not too hard. I had my signatures italic also, even in another colour.

In main_post_cells.html

<font color="#C0C0C0"><i>{$userInfo_user_custom2[$poster_id]}</i></font>

I like that idea of another color also, thanx for the tip! Also thanks for the solution ofcourse.
I was editing the bbcodes and such, but that resulted in more errors then results.

You can also put the same tags into bb_plugins.php code of signatures:

return $sig;

if(trim($sig)!='') $sig='<font color="#C0C0C0"><i>'.$sig.'</i></font>';
return $sig;

Many forums have this feature to make the signatures of members live after certian minimum no. of posts. Here's a way to achieve this through minibb. Here I'm going to display only the member's website url as signature and not using the signature addon.

The benefit to displaying only users website as signature is that normal signatures contain text that is not usually relevant to the topic and they distract search engines, diluting the key words.

Open the file bb_specials.php and add this function at the bottom, before ?>

function parseMessage (){
if ($GLOBALS['userInfo_num_posts'][$GLOBALS['poster_id']]>=15 and $GLOBALS['userInfo_user_website'][$GLOBALS['poster_id']]!=''){
$GLOBALS['signature'] = "----------------<br><a href="".$GLOBALS['userInfo_user_website'][$GLOBALS['poster_id']]."" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">".$GLOBALS['userInfo_user_website'][$GLOBALS['poster_id ']]."</a>";

The above function displays signature (if present) after a member has made 15 posts. You can increase/decrease the no. in function according to your requirement.

Edit the templates main_posts_cell.html and add <br><br>{signature} after {$posterText}{$deleteBox}
