Default Why am I having trouble adding a picture to my signature

such a noob.

I have had picture in my sig in the past. I deleted it. I wanted to put a new one there. I wanted to use:

Quote:
a href="http://virtualmeet.net/" title="Virtualmeet.net"
img src="http://virtualmeet.net/banners/virtualmeet88x31.png" width="88" height="31" border="0" alt="Virtualmeet.net"
/a
(EDIT: wasn't sure how to get it to not read the code as code here so I tool out the <>)

or any picture from
http://virtualmeet.net/promote/

When I tried the above code I get nothing. If I take out the image and put in text, I get the text. Is it because it's a .png file?

thanks

The reason why you can't post a signature is because you have to use [IMG] tags.

Eg... [ IMG]http://virtualmeet.net/banners/virtualmeet88x31.png[ /IMG]

oh, I assumed that since it said "HTML code is ON" that meant HTML was ok. Why can I use html style link tags?

I dunno. It's just the way they made the forum.

If you're using Firefox, you can use the BBcode plugin, it comes in handy.

hmm, I was using firefox (at work) but am not at the moment. I'll look into the plugin later. Thanks for your help.
