Hi,

I've modified my signature somewhat, because I noticed when webpages from Twistypuzzles.com were not shown in full screen in a browser my signature would resize too much creating much height in the signature field.

I already was able to adapt it somewhat (see sig below this message), to prevent 80% screen out-of-fit.

But I still would like to have the text more centered around the image. And resize the image to somewhat smaller (sorry, the image I cannot resize on the location where I take it from).

Any possibilities? (PM me some coding including containing what I've now implemented)

You can use the [imgpix width=100]URL[/imgpix] to resize the image clientside if that's your only option. It's nearly as bad as using the goto statement, though.
There isn't really a command for centering text, but you could offset the text slightly to the left by including a wide, transparent image to the left of the text so it would be pushed right.

I think it's much better now. Thanks Tom!

With 'centering' I did not mean text in central of the page (because that was a problem with my too wide earlier signature), but more centered around the image: lift the bottom text more upward towards the center of the image.

But it's OK now. The basic problem is solved. :solved:

If you take this image and put it to the left of "my E-book" it should fix the alignment.

I'd like to add that it can be really helpful to actually write the signature and format it in a Post Reply page so you can preview how it will look on a normal thread. It made my work much easier many times, but mainly on other forums where I actually had something to format.

The [center] tag would be nice- make things easier.

Also note:
For what you asked for about the image and centering and everything, I think you may just want to make it all one image.

Great idea, but then I would end-up with a similar question to Katsmom: how do you put several hyperlinks in one image then? In the signature field?

(please understand I'm no skilled software developer or such)
