    I made a signature for my profile and saved it but doesn't show up when I post.
    Is the signature option turned off on the forum or maybe just my profile?

    It is the same window that you listed out your vehicles in red per your post above. Looks like you put something in the "about" field in your profile page.

    Is it that I don't see my signature but you do?
    On other forum I was on I could see the signature under my comments.
    I don't see it when I reply

    Not turned off, you put it in the wrong place.

    You edit your profile, and place your signature in the "signature" section:

    Open the attached to see where you change the information in your "Profile Info" tab.

    Could my recent screen name change have anything to do with why my profile doesn't work correctly?
    I can only edit Profile by the drop menu and click on Signature.
    Is there a character limit that might effect it showing up?

    No on the change effecting it, and there may be a limit such as the entire "War and Peace" (the book) might be a little much. Otherwise, you should be able to do anything you want until an Admin or Mod decides something is inappropriate.

    Tried shortening it to just the the Ranchero's and it still wouldn't post.
    Think there is a software problem,when was that last updated?

    Ok that was my question that didn't get answered.
    Does it appear for other members to see but not myself?

    On the GTS Forum years ago the signature could be seen by both myself and all members and Admin when I replied on posts.
    I do NOT see my signature when viewing a post

    This is what I see after reply,no Sig

    I see my signature when I make a post, right above where it says:

    "colnago, 1 minute ago Edit Delete Report Like +Quote Reply"

    Looks like you just changed your signature, because now I see your Gran Torinos. I only saw your Rancheros before. Everything shows up in red.

    A screenshot from mine. Thought: perhaps when not using a 'smartphone-friendly' app for the site, the extras, such as sigs, are dropped, to reduce bandwidth data transfer?

    Joseph I see all that just not My signature
    I see yours though.
    Not sure why it's in red as I tried to switch to black and yes I added our 2 Gran Torinos as it's all about having the 3 72's even though the 76 body shell with title will be on 72 frame is being used to build a 72 GT ProStreet Replica to go with the two 72 Gran Torinos

    I tried to make my signature black text, too, but couldn't figure it out. I figured that red is just one of "those things" on this forum. If you figure it out, let us know.

    Check it out now, changed each vehicle to color they are originally.
    Had to use orange on wagon as they don't have a Medium Yellow Gold
    And hard to read bright yellow.

    Software was recently updated concurrent with renewals and routine updates/security enhancements.

    Bear in mind that this site as most others originated using UBB coding from when online bulletin boards were in their infancy - and legacy features from the old boards including the use of UBB Code is still supported.

    The site default color for signatures is red, and it can be changed as you've discovered, and if someone quotes a post in their signature as many do it appears in the format of a quoted post. Why you aren't seeing your signature appears isolated to you. Every time I look at any of your posts your signature is present.

    I'm happy to chase a problem as is Bill (the site owner). Unfortunately I can't find a problem with the board as of this writing.
