    When Stratics Forums moved to XenForo, some signatures did not show up in the new system. Signatures hosted off site, such as on Imageshack.us or Photobucket, were carried to XenForo. However, signatures that were being hosted locally on vboards.stratics.com do not show up in the new system. For users who fall into the latter category, here is a simple guide for moving your signature to the new site:

    Step 1: Save VBulletin Signature URL

    Navigate to your profile on vBulletin by clicking your username. Within your profile, navigate to the "About Me" tab. Right-click your signature image and click "Save Image As . . ."

    Step 2: Navigate to the Signatures and Avatar Help forum on XenForo

    Step 3: Create a new thread

    Step 4: Upload your signature image as a file

    Step 5: Insert full image into post

    Step 6: Post thread, then right click your image and copy image location.

    Step 7: Edit Signature on XenForo

    Hover over your username and click "Signature" from the resulting dropdown menu.

    Step 8: Paste URL Between Image Tags

    Paste the url from step 1 into the signature editor. Surround the url with image tags (shown below).

    Step 9: Preview/Save Signature

    Preview and/or save your signature. Your signature image should now display on XenForo!
