Signatures are how you identify comments made on talk pages as your own. It is always shown when posting to talk pages with four tildes ~~~~ by default. This guide is to help you make your own custom signature that looks different than the default signature. If you would like to have your own custom signature, why not follow this handy guide to help you make one of your very own?


Making the Signature

Making a signature here is pretty simple, but there are a few things that you need to know first:

  1. You need to know how to make a subpage in your user space.
  2. You need to know a bit of coding.
  3. You need to have a bit of patience.

If you know these things, then continue on to the next section.


Making a Userspace subpage

To make a userspace subpage, all you need to do is follow this nifty step-by-step guide:

  1. First, see the search box in the left side of this screen? Click your mouse in that box until you see a cursor flashing.
  2. Next, type in something like this: User:(Insert your username here)/(name of the subpage).
Example:User:Example/subpageone.
  1. After you type that in, click the go button.
  2. It will say that this page does not exist, but if you click on either the edit this page button in the article space, or click on the red link that it shows you, it will take you to the editing screen.

When people make signatures, they mainly make user subpages with titles like sig1 or siggy or signature, like this: User:Example/sig2.

If you have this section down really well, continue onto the next section.

Coding

Changing color and font size

To code your own signature, you can follow these helpful tips in this section. This section will only cover the basic things you can do with your signature, as well as a few harder ones.

Did you know that you can add color and other cool stuff to your signature to make it nifty looking? To do this, you need to know a bit of coding.

To add different colors to your signature, first, type in your userspace subpage editing box something like this:

  • [[User:(insert your username here)|<font color="green" size="2px">(insert your username here)</font>]]

This will make your signature appear like this:

There are many other different colors you can choose from, like orange, red, green, blue, and also some variants, like gold, silver, grey, magenta, cyan, and so on.

Another option you could use are hex numbers for colors. To use these, all you have to do is this:

  • [[User:(insert your username here)|<font color="(insert hex code here)" size="2px">(insert your username again)</font>]]

An example of a hex code is 000000. This section is the part that will take the longest to do, so make sure that you have some patience to get your signature the way you want it to look like.


Adding Images

To add images to your signature just upload the image you want and then chage it's size.You also have to add the tag <onlyinclude> .

  1. Example:
  • <onlyinclude>[[File:(insert your image name.image type)|(--)px]] [[[User:(insert your username here)|<font color="green" size="2px">(insert your username here)</font>]]</onlyinclude>

In the end it'll look like this:

Signing with new signature

To do this, all you have to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. First, scroll up to the top of the screen and click the Preferences tab in the top right hand corner.
  2. Click the "treat signature as raw wikitext" box under signature. Then, place in the signature box:
  • {{subst:User:(insert your username here)/(insert name of userspace subpage here)}}

This will make it so that when you sign talk pages, your new signature is used instead of the one that is set as the default.

Congratulations!

Have fun making your own signatures!
