    Post Don't count the chars in the signature please :)

    I punked RobA some time ago about the possibilty of not counting characters when you make the signature. Now, I know he and Arcana have been busy getting everything to work - kudos to them - and it looks like everything is running smothly again... so now I discreetly tap them on the shoulder with my small issue

    The problem is that since the signature counts the HTML characters as well if you have a handfull of links you run out of text quickly. My signature below is the max size I can have right now and I would like to link to more stuff

    And if there is concerns about people having to large signatures, then we could use an honor system off max 5 lines or 80 pixels (just an example) to keep it "discreet" - I see no problems in this forum with people respecting that

    I've increased the non-displayed character lmit, but the visible limit is still set at 500 (Which should be more than enough... mine has 411 in it).

    Yeah I burnt my chars so made up an image of all the static text. Its a problem for the links tho I agree. This is something that could be partially sorted with a script but I have lost script access since the host move. Robs sig is pretty big tho so the new size is probably well enough.

    I'm not sure Rob's sig is a measure of what we mere mortals can do ... but the fact that only visible chars are counted should solve most peoples problems, its the links that "kills" the signature

    Try it now, Tilt. There was a change in the system settings.

    It should now allow 500 chars displayed, 5000 chars total.
