Cannot add signature.

Posted by MightyKondrian on August 17, 2017, at 19:54:03

Despite finding the settings I cannot make or alter my signature. Neither can I turn on my babblemail.
Help?

Hi,
Congratulations on finding the settings.

I just tested and was able to set a signature. What happened when you tried to set your signature?

Please make sure you hit "Confirm" after previewing your new signature. That's probably the easiest step to miss.

Hi! I got your babblemail, but it appears your babblemail is currently turned off, so I'm replying here.

Sorry, I don't know how to set signatures, but I think I have figured out the likely problem.

The box you are seeing is not for the signature, it's for setting the size of the box displayed for inputting your messages. The Signature area is lower on the page. For me, the Signature area doesn't load right away, which is admittedly confusing. I have to wait a few seconds for the page to finish loading, then I can scroll down to see the entire Settings page.

So please go to Settings again, wait a few seconds for the rest of the page to load, then scroll down. You should see the Signature box with a Preview button. After setting your signature, hit Preview, then you will see how your signature will look. Then use the Confirm button to set it.

Give it a try :-)


 

Darn it!

No I still cannot create a signature. When I click on signature from the settings page its seems to not allow me to scroll down further than the tweets part. I realise I can change the shape of my message box. Perhapse its coz I'm using Firefox 64bit?
I did turn my babble mail on tho. Dont know how lol.

How did you turn on babblemail? I think I'm following the instructions, but it's a dead end loop

Like i said im not sure. I tried going back to it but nothing.

What if I babblemailed an admin member with my signature. would they then be able to add it?

Thanks for your patience! I think I may have found a way to get the Settings page to load properly. Try using this link, instead of the link from the FAQ page:
https://www.dr-bob.org/cgi-bin/pb/settings.pl

For me, this causes the Settings page to load completely without the long delay.

Let me know if this works for you

Babblemail option appears on Settings page. Try this link.
https://www.dr-bob.org/cgi-bin/pb/settings.pl

You should see these options:
Message Box Size
Automatic Asterisking
Share/Tweet Buttons
Babblemail

Thank you! I think I didn't scroll the page down far enough or something. Well, it works now :)

Have you noticed? No MIDIs. Brings to mind midichlorians, at least for a starwars fiend like me.

Oh that's great! I've been using my MIDI-blocking Chrome extension so I wasn't sure if it was fixed or not.
