I'm trying to find out how to put those icons at the bottom of my posts like kinds of guns, organizations you belong to but cant find it anywhere. Can anyone help me with that?

I tried to look this information up in the FAQ section but all the links you need to be able to read are red type on a very dark grey background. Has anybody noticed that it's impossible to read red type on a dark grey background? Your only hope is to highlight it but if it's a list and you click on the one you want with them all highlighted, it tries to go everywhere. Might want to change that, just a suggestion.

Dear RF.Net Members,
In an effort to maintain the desired look and feel of RF.Net, the staff has agreed on the following guidelines as they relate to the Signature Icons displayed here. Please read these guidelines completely before adding Icons to your signature line, and feel free to contact a staff member if you have any questions or issues.

FORUM RULES FOR SIGNATURE ICONS

1. Only the signature icons contained in this thread are permitted for use in your signature line (home made icons, pictures, animated "gifs" or banners are not allowed). Also, links (business, other forums and organizations, YouTube, etc.) are not permitted.
2. You may have a maximum of 16 icons in your signature at any given time (feel free to change the mix as often as you want).
3. Your icons must be displayed in horizontal rows (maximum to two rows). Please note that vertical stacks will not be permitted as the staff feels that the amount of space required detracts from the "readability" of the forum.
4. While the new guidelines will not automatically adjust your existing signature, we would ask that each member make the necessary adjustments to bring their signature in line with the new standards as soon as possible.


DIRECTIONS TO INSTALL ICONS

1. You are currently reading these directions in what we will refer to a window #1. Open up a new window (window #2) on your browser and go to the RF.Net forum main page (do not close window #1 as you will need it to copy your icons of choice)
2. In window #2, Go to your "User Control Panel" and select "Edit Signature".
3. In window #1, Right click on the icon you want to add to your block and select "Properties" (if you have the option to "copy URL", do so and skip to step #7)
4. Highlight the URL Address with your cursor.
5. Right click on the address and select Copy.
6. Cancel the Properties box.
7. Go to your profile (in the new window).
This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image. The original image is sized 850x494.

8. Right click in the white Signature area and select Paste.
9. Type in the IMG and /IMG tags with the brackets (see example above).
10. Update the profile and Repeat the procedure for each icon.
11. Note that your new icons will now show in subsequent posts (they are not retroactive to previous posts), and that any future adjustments to your signature icons will be reflected in all posts that contain your icons.

I hope this helps you out...

Pee,If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will see a drop down box to the left side of the page.If you click on it you will have different options on the text and layout of the page.This will change the colors of the section you speak of.

If you delete the URL part and put IMG and /IMG at the beginning and end of the link line it will work. I have done the first one so you can see how it works.

Found it. A change in the default might be a good idea though. it's very frustrating when you have a problem and dont now the solution to the wall between you and the answer is hidden down in the lower left corner so you can read the type.
