Help with signatures

Post by Aaron »

I'm so confused right now. You know how users have the "Discussion" or talk page where they can talk? Well, I went to my preferences page and edited my signature to "[[User:Aaron|Aaron]]". This would mean that if you clicked on my name in my signature, it would act like a link and take you to my userpage (User:Aaron). Now, I've set it to exactly that, and I would do what's required for your signature and your timestamp to appear (the --~~~~ thing) but it wasn't my username that appeared as the clickable link, the thing that I typed (the [[User:Aaron|Aaron]]) appeared as that clickable link and so whenever I try to include my signature to my message, it would always end up looking like this:
Aaron failed sig.PNG
Aaron failed sig.PNG (4.12 KiB) Viewed 770 times
Now, for other users' signatures, I've checked and it worked perfectly for them, but for me, it never works. What am I doing wrong here?

Oh, and also, whenever I include my sig, it doesn't just make the text I have in my "Edit signature" option in my preferences, but it also keeps adding random stuff in that I didn't include there. It gives me this when I go to the edit page of my user talk page:

--[[User:Aaron|[[User:Aaron|Aaron]]]] ([[User talk:Aaron|talk]])

Why is this? Also, I want the little gold fist icon from Rayman 1 to appear in my RayWiki sig.

Open RayWIki, click preferences on the upper right and then you'll see a section where it says signature. Just type Aaron into the box and save it, that should fix it.

EDIT: Alright then try:

Code: Select all

[[Aaron|link=User:Aaron]][[File:Gold_fist.png|class=sprite|link=User:Aaron]]
and tick the box "Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link)".

If you want the fist on the left, rather than the right, then try:

Code: Select all

[[File:Gold_fist.png|class=sprite|link=User:Aaron]][[Aaron|link=User:Aaron]]

But then why doesn't the other one that I said work? The [[User:Aaron|Aaron]]? It certainly should if it worked for the others. :|

Also, the one you told me to try out only gave me this:
Aaron failed sig 2.PNG

I seriously don't get it. For the first one, I typed out the exact thing that was required for it to work.

oh my gosh i hate this

Did you definitely use the [[]] around the sig? The way you're typing that first one is different to mine. Mine is

Code: Select all

[[File:Steo_sig.png|60px|link=User:Steo]]
with that box under it checked.

I apologise, I left png and not gif in the box. :roll:

It should be:

Code: Select all

[[Aaron|link=User:Aaron]][[File:Gold_fist.gif|class=sprite|link=User:Aaron]]
If that still fails, try this on its own as a test with only the fist:

Code: Select all

[[File:Gold_fist.gif|class=sprite|link=User:Aaron]]

Alright, so what you were saying was actually true apparently. So, my first "[" didn't appear as yours indeed I guess?

Another thing, I've fixed the issue! I did it by copying another user's sig and pasting it into the box, then replacing the parts of the other user's sig (the image and name) with mine and it worked! :D

I actually decided to scrap the golden fist idea for the sig and went for the Magician's hat from Rayman Origins instead because it just looks so fancy. Plus the "Aaron" takes you to my userpage now. :)

By the way, this is what it looks like:

That explains it then. Well that's cool, it's just kind of confusing at first because the forum and wiki code varies a lot.

Glad you got it sorted. :)
