This tutorial will help you set up a Signature Resize for your forum using CSS. This prevents large images from stretching or otherwise breaking your forum.


Identifying Forum Version
First thing we need to do is find the CSS code for your forum version. Each version except bb2&3 have different selectors. To check your forum version navigate to..
Administration Panel > Display > Skins > Choose a theme > Version

Find General and look to Change version that will display your current version.

Installing CSS
Now that you know your forum version we can install the resize CSS for your forum. Find the correct CSS code for your forum version and navigate to..
Administration Panel > Display > Pictures and Colors > Colors > CSS stylesheet

Paste this in your CSS if your forum version is phpbb2, phpbb3, or invision:
.signature_div img{
max-width:500px !important;
max-height:200px !important;

Paste this in your CSS if your forum version is punbb:
.sig-content img{
max-width:500px !important;
max-height:200px !important;

Once you have pasted the code in your CSS be sure to submit it to save the changes. If you've done the recent steps correctly your forum should now resize images larger than 500px width or 200px height. You can modify the size if you want images to be smaller or larger. Read Explanation for more information on the properties used in this tutorial.

max-width: Sets the maximum width for an element.
max-height: Sets the maximum height for an element.
min-width: Sets the minimum width for an element.
min-height: Sets the minimum height for an element.
width: Sets the width for an element.
height: Sets the height for an element.

All properties above can be defined in px, cm, %, ect..  

auto: The height and width are automatically set depending on the element contents.
inherit: The height and width are inherited from the parent element.

Using the above you can put together quite a unique signature resizer. You can also use :hover to increase the size when the mouse is hovered over the image. Thanks for reading and good luck with your forum! Wink
