In Toadily Grand Slammin Profiles (TGSP), we have 60+ tutorials that our members use to help them with adding all sorts of things to their Cafemom page.. These tutorials are available to members only but... I've decided to release a couple of these tutorials to all members of Cafemom! These are © to me and may NOT be copied and shared!

Since everyone loves siggies (it seems! lol), I've decided to make my signature tutorial available to all! The following tutorial explains how to add a signature to your messages on Cafemom! If you'd like to know how to add a signature to Yahoo, Hotmail or AOL, you'll have to join TGSP to view those tutorials!

Cafemom Toolbar Signatures...

With the Cafemom toolbar, you can add up to 10 signatures to use on your mail messages and posts. With the toolbar, you can carry your signatures to Yahoo, Myspace, etc.. To download the toolbar, click here.

Adding an animated rich text signature...

1.  Mouse over "My Other Stuff" at the top of any cafemom page.
2.  Look under "My Account Settings" in the drop down box & click on  "Fonts & Signatures".
3.. Click on "add a rich text signature"
4.  If your signature is animated, save it to your computer and upload it to photobucket.
5.  Once the signature is in photobucket, copy the "direct link".
6.  Click on "add a photo" and then on "paste a url" and paste the direct link in the "paste a url" box. Insert.
7. Make sure your signature is named, set it as Cafemom default and save.


Adding a non animated rich text signature...

Adding a ticker to a signature (using html code)..

Wow! This is what I've been looking for .....TMI for all at once., but a point of reference I'm glad to have found. I should have been reading instructions in order from the start!.... ,,,, hind sight is 20/20! Funny how phrases become clear years after you've heard them a thousand times!

so true about hindsight being 20/20! I've come to that realization more times than I care to admit! lol

Are you trying to add a siggy to Cafemom or somewhere else? And what is telling you it's "not operating at this time"?

Yes it does say that. Not operating or not an option....most of the time I'm on my iPad ...the first one. So there are not many possibilities at this time. However my husband has a new desk top and I can use it. I truly want to show off the lovely Siggies I have collected, but sadly have been unable to do so. .... Thank you for your response... ToadilyPeachy... : )
