Signature Permission Issues

I have my regular usergroups set up for one Signature, but another usergroup set up for 2 signatures,

When a member is taking out of the usergroup set for 2 signatures and kept in the usergroup set up for 1 signature that member still has 2 signatures,

Please help!!!

Since default vB supports only 1 signature, you use an addon for this. So you need to ask this in the addon thread.

True but I created a usergroup allowing 4 sig. but when members are taking out of that usergroup they should go back to the default 1 sig. but their not they still have 4 sigs

I didn't do any addons for this just usergroup permissions.

And what setting would that be allowing users to have 4 different signatures?

You can set the number of images per signature in the usergroup manager, is this what you are referring too as signatures?

Yes that's exactly the way I set the usergroup, for a subscription usergroup members are allowed 4 sigs. but when the subscription runs out, members are removed from that usergroup where you can not have 4 sigs. only 1, but members that get removed from that usergroup still have 4 sigs. and im not understanding why.

1.) Are you saying their old posts still display four signatures?
2.) Or are you saying that after being removed from a user-group, they can still add four signatures?
3.) Are these secondary user-groups they are being added and removed from?

First question, there new posts they still have 4, I went to that members profile and still showing all 4 sig.

Second question, I did a test with a test account and no they can't add 4 sigs. when removed from the usergroup, but if they have 4 sig. before being removed they still have all 4 sigs. after they are removed.

When a member pays for the membership their put into the membership usergroup/Primary Usergroup when the membership is up and they are removed they go back to Registered Member/Primary Usergroup

First of all, I'd really appreciate if you would speak of sigpics, not sigs. This is not about 4 signatures, but about signature pictures, and it confuses me all the time if you go on about people having 4 signatures.

Second: The number of sigpics is checked against permissions when the signature is created. If the user has permission to use 4 sigpics at the time of creation, he can create a signature with 4 pictures. This signature then is used until he changes it, nom matter what permission changes happen until then. Only when changing the signature the number of pics is checked again. There is no way that I'm aware of to change the signature automatically when the permission is revoced.

It may be possible through an addon - you might have to remove the signature as a whole. Possibly using regex it would also be possible to only remove the last three sigpics.

Thanks @Cellarius,
I was just looking into this, and you are right about the confusion. I interpreted the question meaning 4 lines in the signature editor, which is also an option. Nevertheless you answer still applies as I was going to write up something similar, but maybe not as elegant.

What table is the signature text stored? I can find "sigparsed", but the users signature text eludes me at the moment.

That's the table where the text is also stored together side by side with the sigpic ...

The column is signatureparsed

Anyway, no quick fix.

I have never explored or used the signature section of vbulletin's code. I have never allowed the use of it on my boards, mainly because I was naive in this area on how the members would abuse it.
The number of lines in the text editor could be the issue, I know in the permissions I have every usergroup set at 1 Signature except for 2 usergroups, Multimedia I have set for 2 Signatures and the paid membership set for 4 Signatures.

Custom Avatars work fine when a member is in the same paid membership usergroup they are allowed a custom avatar and when a member is removed from that usergroup their avatar goes back to a default avatar just fine, I just don't see why the Sigs or Sigpics don't do the same.

Here is a print screen of a member that has been removed from the membership usergroup but sill has 4 sigpics
