Question about how to use the board: When I first set up my account, I was asked if I wanted to add a Signature line. I entered one and now see it appearing in my posts. Later, I went to My Stuff > Edit Profile and observed that the Signature line field was blank -- i.e., it did not display the Signature I entered when I originally created my account. Is this a bug or intentional behavior for some reason?

Also, one other item, if I may:

I looked in My Stuff > Preferences to try to see if I could set a default font type/size for my posts. I did not see such a setting. Is it possible to do so or is that not supported by the message board? Do you have to set the font type/size every time you post?

Thanks ...

Signature:
  • What value is set in your profile for the "Show Signatures" field in Display Preferences?
  • What happens if you enter a value into the blank signature field in your profile?
  • After making a change in your profile, be sure to click on the Update button at the bottom to save the change(s).

Font Size:
There is no setting on a per user basis for a type size. You control it within each post via the font size button at the top of the reply box. You must be using the Full Editor to see the font size button. Keep in mind that if someone starts going nuts with font types and sizes for no apparent reason (vision problems not withstanding), I would probably delete the post.

Please post any other questions you may have.

In My Stuff > Edit Profiles, the setting displays Show Signatures Always

It correctly updates the Signature line in my posts to the new version.

I did and it appeared to work.

Noted. Thanks for the advance warning. Going forward, I will instead adjust the font size via my browser so it is easier to read and will not customize my font type in future posts.

I shall. Thank you for your prompt reply to a new user's questions.

Customizing fonts and font sizes for emphasis or readability is fine. I had people who took it as far as making each word a different size or font making a mockery of the board which I won't allow.

I'm always happy to address anyone's questions. Thank you for your participation.
