This makes sense actually. You shouldn't be allowed to post here just for signatures and backlinks. God work about this.

Thanks for the information. I think that is why I can't find any signature editor in my profile

Very helpful topic. I have been looking for 30 minutes in my control panel where is the signature editor :) However I know that there is a 25 posts limitation before adding a signature.

Ok, here is a strange one... and a note that I have 80+ posts.

I have recently created a new website, and if I change the weblink to my new url, http://reddirtstudio.com.au/, the link is truncated, see here:

http://reddirtstudio.com.au/

But the old url will work

http://vieweb.com.au/

Same happens in my signature

Any clues most appreciated

Hi,

This was due to an wordcensor which was menat for a different site but also caused your domain to be censored.

I have fixed this now.

Actually, the minimum number of posts has been increased to 25 recently...
Unless people are being a bit "clever" (that is, they're faking it), recently I've noticed a few newbie forum users have signatures when they've had less than 5 posts. I can quote an example if anyone wants to take a look.

EDIT: Forget it. I had another look and these people are obviously faking it. Sorry for the intrusion; go on about your business. Nothing to see here.

no, you have to post a suitable number of good quality posts that do not lead you to be branded a spammer or posting for points to reach the required level of posts at the time you wish to add you signature.

Hi,

I have a Question about the signature, once 25 posts finished then USER can add a signature, my question is this after 25 posts the user can add any URL of the website in signature or there is some restriction.

Please reply.

Master Kim

I found this question on the FAQ section, but it is not helpful at all.

How do I add a signature to my post?
To add a signature to a post you must first create one via your User Control Panel. Once created, you can check the Attach a signature box on the posting form to add your signature. You can also add a signature by default to all your posts by checking the appropriate radio button in your profile. If you do so, you can still prevent a signature being added to individual posts by un-checking the add signature box within the posting form.



It says nothing about where to go in the User CP to add the signature... I looked in all the subheadings and could not find it. Can somebody help?
I'm new and this has the same questions, fortunately when I had found the answer to this problem ^^

Most people put their real name + their Joomla website in their signature.

I'm sorry to be resurrecting this zombie topic but I think, in the interests of fairness, I've based my understanding of the "rule" about forum signatures on the ad nauseam repeated "25 posts" statement.

Well, either there are people who are gaming the system or the 25-post qualification is just an urban myth because I've noticed a few people have apparently created valid forum signatures with less than 25 messages (no names, no pack drill, just stating an observed truth).

It is not an urban myth and we cannot apply the rule retrospectively. Users who created their accounts in 2012 or 2008 had to post a much lower number of messages before they could create their signature in the control panel. The limit was increased when the spam problem grew.

Actually most of the spammers participate in forum discussion and they create hyperlink through signature which is helpful to create backlinks in SEO, So may be this is the reason of not provided signature option.
