Siggy won't post... help!

Hi there! We are trying to create some siggys in our regular Cafe Mom group, in order to participate in a weekly group challenge. The catch is, when we post in our group, the signatures do not come across. Two different moms tried, and neither one could get it to work. Both of us followed the directions that we were given, with no luck. Any idea what we could be doing wrong?

  • Hi sarah_smile,

    One thing to check is the setting on your 'Privacy + Settings' page. Here's how to view/change your signature preferences:

    Mouseover the 'Home' tab.
    Click on 'Personal Details' in the drop-down menu.
    Click the 'Privacy + Settings' link on the left side of the page.
    Scroll down the page until you see the following: 'Show Signatures'.
    Make sure 'All Signatures' is selected.
    If you make any changes, click the 'Save' button.

  • These are the rest of the instructions that we are using...
    * Click the Add a Photo button and find where you saved the image. Upload the image.

    * Click on the image to highlight it.

    * Click on the “chain” symbol and paste the URL/link to your group in the “Link” box.

    * Click “Insert”

    * Be sure to give your signature a name. That way you can keep track of the different signatures if you create more than one
