Help:Custom signatures

From the Portal Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Custom signatures allow you to overwrite the default signature (The text that shows up when you type ~~~~, or hit the signature button).

Creating a Custom Signature

1. Navigate to User:USERNAME/Sig
Note: Replace USERNAME with your Portal Wiki username.
2. Edit the page, and include everything that you want to be in your sig. For example, to recreate the default signature, you'd add something like:
[[User:USERNAME|USERNAME]]
3. Save the page
4. Go to Special:Preferences
5. In the "Signature" field, add the following:
{{SUBST:User:USERNAME/Sig}}
6. Check the box marked "Treat signatures as Wikitext (without an automatic link)"

That's it. Next time you use ~~~~ it will be replaced with the contents of your /Sig page.
