Even if its not possible to make another box with better instructions remember SP staff this is part of our job!

Fabz if your still confused here it is again..click user control panel then edit avatar then go down to custom avatar and either post the images URL in the box or hit browse to upload a pic from your computer once it is in click save changes and vwalla you should see it

Not as simple as you make it sound. We don't "live" here in HTML format. The Forum exists in vB software format. It is wonderful in that it provides us what we see/use and gives us all the options and features we enjoy, .....not so wonderful in that you cant just modify the templates.

It really doesn't come up that often, and everything is already explained here

JW and everybody. It'* something we have to work around given the parameters available to us. And I placed instructions for everything in the "Introductions" Section as a sticky at the top. Best way to help anyone really is point them to that thread. It'* pretty concise and complete. The directions there were written and gone over by people that have been here for years. Just linking to that page will work best.

Cool. I may or may not be able to do anything with the signature template. But something I need advice not available at the moment. Like I mentioned. I can turn this place into a trainwreck with the click of a button. LOL.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Always the problem and no matter how many places we place that thread,......"Men won't read until nothing else makes something work. I bought a Canon Rebel XS last summer and still using two functions because I can't take the time to read the immense manual. Auto w/'Flash and Auto w/o Flash.
