How To Change My Truck Photo In My Signature?

I can't figure out how to add a pic of my truck to my "signature". I used to have a link to a photo in a third party photo site, but I see now that link is dead. I see how to add photos in the forums via your "attachment manager" but that doesn't seem to be an option for my profile signature. Thanks.

You cannot add a photo directly to your signature line. It has to be a link from off site.

Put your truck in the new gallery forum and put that link in your signature line. That's what I did.

Okay, I still need help:

A. Still not successful at posting pic of my truck in my signature. Here's what I have done:
1. Uploaded my pic to Flickr and made it public. Clicked on "Share" so I could get the URL for the pic (https://www.flickr.com/photos/193553884@N02/shares/5jdUvb)
2. I went to my Stovebolt profile and pasted that link into my signature, but link doesn't elicit the little gloved hand icon when you mouse over it.
a. Tried a variety of the the [URL] [URL] type text shown on the instruction page but same result at above
b. Saved pic to my G00gle drive, made it public, pasted URL in my signature under profile settings; link is active, but only works once, after that it gives an error message saying page can't be loaded.
3. Rich'sToys above recommended creating a page in the new gallery but the DITY Gallery is down (Is there a different gallery I don't know about?)

B. Related to above, I would like to put my truck and its story and a few pics in the gallery, but I'm confused as to which gallery to use (main gallery, new gallery, DITY gallery, etc.).

I would appreciate if someone could give me kindergarten-level step by steps on A. and B. above; someone must have slipped some stupid pills in with my vitamins because, though normally functionally tech savvy, I'm completely lost on these two simple issues.

Thanks,
Mike

I can’t help on the link stuff but I can give you some insight on the other options. First and most important the original Stovebolt Gallery is officially closed (it is still viewable) and no longer accepting submissions. Second the DITY Forum is officially locked down and no longer accepting submissions. Third and really important to those wanting to display photos of their trucks, The New Gallery is up and running and is self publishing. Please read the New Gallery guidelines before submitting your entry. The Gallery is located between the two garage sections of the forums and is broken down into year ranges. Click on the appropriate year range, then click on the New Gallery button at the top and follow the directions. Good luck and looking forward to your write up.

Please remember that you cannot post a photo directly to your signature line. You can post a link to an off-site photo hosting app, but some of those may be restricted by Stovebolt software.

I ran out of luck Martin on any submission months ago. And I see that there are very few submissions so I am guessing that I am not alone. I admire and respect Baldeagle and all that make this work but I am still in kindergarten when it comes to computer savvy.

The first five days after the weekend are the hardest.
