If you want to show off your community on any other site. This is the solution for you. A dynamic signature that updates (depending on the task) however often you like. You can now brag about your community with a tiny image. Included is a boring template. You may edit your own, or may purchase a customized template. So send me any color ideas, pictures, background images and size preference and I will adapt the script for your site, but please give me 24-48 hours to complete that. The documentation has more details.

This is great. Would love to see an ACP interface for adding a background image.
In terms of data, I'd like to see the user's user name and post count listed. Also, if they have a blog, then the blog be listed.
Would it be possible to tie-in some other little images that could go on top of the background image? (Sort of like the Xbox gamer tag, except it's not tied to Xbox, it's tied to your own forum. I'd like it to not just display the background image but also any 'awards' won on the forum.)

I've been messing with the power of the dynamic image for awhile, and got it pretty strong in some areas. If you are registered on x site and still have the same IP from the last time you visited, the dynamic signature can pull your account name w/ profile picture and populate an image with the other basic stats. Those without an account just get a un-personalized image.

I got these errors when I try to launch the task:

Mod works fine on v3.2.x

The instruction is in the installation guide supplied in the zip file for this mod.

The image


The dynamic image will be located at YOUR SITE/public/img/sig.png[/color]

Just go to your User control panel and insert the link to the image as you would with any other image, click on the 'image' button and enter the URL.

I've actually been working on a 1.2 version that is very feature advance. It allows some big changes. There is also a v1.1 that works on IPB 3.2 http://community.inv...c-sig-image-32/

  • You upload template (PNG only) through the ACP. Or upload it to this directory.
  • You then can select that image via the ACP settings menu. Then you can click to add a variety of stats to that image. Ranging from total members, to the last joined member.
  • You can select the font, using Google fonts (A bit weary on the licensing, so working on that). I was thinking you could dynamically download the fonts. For GD I need that, and they only allow CSS/JS importing for use. You can still manually install TTF files.
  • You give it x and y coordinates, and tell it the font size. It then places it on the image, and refreshes the image so you may see the change.
  • Using GD (You must have the GD library). It generates that image based on the template and saves it into a directory. That saved image is then used and processed for the future images.

The current bugs right now.
  • Everytime the image re-generates everything gets moved by a few pixels because its being generated off what GD fed the pixel values of. Quite annoying
  • Multiple image support is effed.
  • How do I include an ACP settings menu within a hook? no clue.
