in reply to Check your signature (Signatures mistaken for content)

Answer: Change your CSS (either in your browser or on user settings). Look at the html of a page, and you'll notice that some busy goblin has neatly added "pmsig" classes to everyones signatures. So all you need to do is make your CSS display these differently, and presto: recognisable signatures.

    Is there an example of how to add a CSS for the signature? I tried the following in the "On-Site CSS Markup" field of User Settings:

    <style type="text/css"> .pmsig { font: lucida; font-size: small; font-decoration: italic color: pink } </style>

    With no luck. I haven't worked with CSS very much.

    Any assistance would be appreciated!

    My unfinished sig here:

      There are two issues here.
      1. The sig tag is wrapped in <div class="pmsig">, so the selector should be div.pmsig
      2. Your browser will silently ignore broken css, making it hard to debug - see the (untested) edits below

      /* perlmonks will add style tags for you */ div.pmsig { font-family: lucida; font-size: small; font-style: italic; color: pink; } has some quick and easy css tutorials to start you off.

      Update: Tested the css

        Ah ha! That did the trick. Thanks!
