vB Version: 3.5.3 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 27
Released: 27 Jan 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 110
Not Supported Additional Files  

This mod makes it so you can display your site name, user name, user title, join date, and post count on a dynamic JPG image. It can be used as a forum signature on forums allowing in signatures.

Requirements: (1) you need to have PHP compiled with the GD image library, and (2) you need either $_SERVER['SCRIPT_URL'] or $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] available on your server. To see if you meet the requirements, check the README.txt file in the ZIP archive.

You can use whatever JPG image you want for the backdrop. See screenshot, which uses white text on a black to blue gradient. Of course, you can change the text color and make a fancier backdrop.

Please, click install should you use this mod. Thanks.

Fine Print: This mod provides up-to-date information on the image, and that means a query per request, so if you are concerned about queries, this mod may not be for you.

I hate to burst your bubble. You are the second person today to release a mod that has already been done. Would hate to see repeats all the time. Yours seems a little risky to have to enable .php in sigs. Anyone could exploit that.

Exact same mod,

Why can't this mod be an alternative? This modification doesn't require you to do put so much work into the installation. This was a lot quicker and easier installation for me.

It's not enabling PHP code in signatures, it's just an image tag that points to the script. And this seems like a more user oriented one while the other one displays forum stats.

Yes, I see a few of the differences. Perhaps the ideas of both could be pulled into one, so all options are available on the same mod.

Also, how do you link an image using the extension .php without enabling the use of .php? I've never actually tried using any other extention in an image.

This is a great idea, but there are not many forums that allow the .php extension as images in the signature. Atleast if they are IPB forums >8(

LOL, didn't think this mod would cause minor controversy. Not sure what else to call it, forgive me.

From the release post...
It can be used as a forum signature on forums allowing in signatures.
When you use the BB code [img] tag like so:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It gets parsed like so, assuming the BB code [img] tag is allowed like above:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The usersig1.php script of this mod, once you have it up and running, is a clean script returning a JPG image, so forums allowing the BB code [img] tag in signatures like above (on vB it's vB -> vBulletin Options -> User Profile Options -> Allow [IMG] Code in Signatures) you will see the image onscreen.

Please note that the vB BB code [img] tag in signatures is not the same as allowed vB extensions for attachments. Can't say what other non-vB forums do WRT their signatures.

Thanks to those that have been trying to explain it.
