    My signature as well as those of others are present when I log in however all of them disappear when I log off. Is this normal ?

    Re: Signature

    That's what happens for me, too. Presumably the ability to view signatures is turned off for guests.

    Re: Signature

    Good so it's not just me. Do you have any idea why this is the case ?

    Re: Signature

    Perhaps I should've started a new post but this seemed like an appropriate thread. I can't set my signature? Does anyone know why or where a reference is for stuff like this? I also don't have an avatar (even though I have one in my profile). After years of infrequent use, I'm finally personalizing my account.

    Nevermind. I need to upgrade. I've been planning on doing that anyway. Go ahead and ignore this.

    Re: Signature

    And also related, I just gave myself an avatar. I can see it in my profile but not on my posts. Is there something else I needed to do?

    Re: Signature

    You've set your profile picture. You need to go back to your My PF page and click the edit avatar option in the sidebar menu.

    Re: Signature

    I do that several time. I get the address of the image in my computer in the box, I click the save changes, it is still the same. :confused:

    Re: Signature

    As Kurdt said, you have set a profile picture which is distinct from an avatar. Follow the instructions that Kurdt gave and you should be able to set an avatar.

    Re: Signature

    Thank you. I did that and got the message "upload of avatar failed". I am not very good with computers but had enough experience to know that it had therefore probably succeeded, and it has.
    I know computer people have some system of logic into which the above 'therefore' fits; I have not mastered it but that is off topic.

    Thank you Kurdt and Hootenenany.
