    1) click User CP on the upper left of the forums

    2) click Edit Signature on the upper left under the Settings & Options header

    3) click the little button that looks like a mountain on a yellow background.

    4) Done! :)

    First, you have to "make" a banner, using paint or photoshop, etc. Or you can find an online image (which is not recommended, because you are stealing someone's bandwidth) Make sure the banner is under 550x175 pixels.

    Then, you have to upload it somewhere to "host" it. Most people use places like a free Photobucket account ( www.photobucket.com ) to upload the image to. Make sure when you set up in your photobucket settings that you "Allow direct linking".

    When the image is uploaded, the image then has an address. If you use photobucket it will tell you.

    Use this address in your signature box (As Jesse above explained) to put your banner into your sig.
