Anyone able to remind me how to add my stats bar to the forum signature? It seems to have slipped my mind.

Log into geocaching.com and go to http://www.geocaching.com/my/statbar.aspx

Copy the HTML code. Change the HTML to BB Codes. It should end up looking like this (except the 7d26c1ab-97fb-467e-917b-993ea5d43e87 part will be different for each person).

Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=7d26c1ab-97fb-467e-917b-993ea5d43e87][img]http://img.geocaching.com/stats/img.aspx?txt=Let's+Go+Geocaching!&uid=7d26c1ab-97fb-467e-917b-993ea5d43e87&bg=1[/img][/url]
Then in the forums, click "Profile" and then click "Forum Profile Information". Fill in the signature field and client "Change Profile"

I did the copy and paste of the HTML coding but it still shows up as gibberish. How do I change it to BBC Codes?

Thanks

By hand. Just delete the HTML and type in the BB codes. Like this...

Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=d956c209-5be2-4ca4-82c1-b9f19fd4a954][img]http://img.geocaching.com/stats/img.aspx?txt=It's+CACHE+and+not+CASH!&uid=d956c209-5be2-4ca4-82c1-b9f19fd4a954&bg=1[/img][/url]
Which displays this...

Sorry! I am at a loss as to how to do this.
I know zilch, nothing about HTML coding.
Can you give me a little more help?

Thanks

Copy and Paste Tcorts URL into a word document
Right click on your stats bar (in your gc.com profile) and select "copy shortcut"
Paste this information into the same word document

You will notice both lines of text contain one similar feature, it looks like goobly gook but it means everything in this instance.

Copy the information from your pasted profile info.. you want everything after the "?g" so

"uid=7d26c1ab-97fb-467e-917b-993ea5d43e87"
(your numbers will be different but they all start the same)

Tcorts link has this information written in twice... so you will need to past your information in twice aswell...
The result will look the same as Tcorts original link but the numbers will mean that your information is going to be displayed.

Hope that helps..
