People like signatures...then some people don't...so I want to keep the signatures, but make an option so users that don't want to view them, can turn them off..is there someway someone can do this?

One of those more-trouble-that-worth things, I'm afraid. frown

Plus, you'd be INSANE to start a hack this close to 6.1!

i really have no clue of the structure of UBB, but couldent you just but a if statement before the code that inserts a users signature?? im sure that sounded like a noob satmentent, but i DO know a bit about C++ so im not completly lost behind this.

edit: wait, i mis read this, you want to let the user choose to turn it off for his viewing...that might be a bit harder. is there a varible or somthing that can be accessed to find out what user is accessing the forums and then check if he has the option on/off?
/me goes to disect some UBB code

Basically that is what you would do. An if statement. But you would also have to have a profile check, your own field to ask this, probably some cp options. So it would be a little more tougher.

Well, here is a picture of similar to what I want...

[Linked Image]

This is from a YaBB (yet another bulletin board) it is a free board...so I assume it shouldn't be too hard to make this addon...I really would like it, along with other people too...it would take alot of load of peoples connections...some people have to pay for the internet you know, and cant afford pages being 500k each...

Thanks alot

Well, it looks like it might just be a little easier. But then again I know how to do most of that except for the parts where it actually decides to show or not one thing.

Hmm, this is going to be harder then I thought. Their code is really messy. I wonder if PerlTidy could make it look better.
