UPDATED Fuelly Sig Tutorial

UPDATED!!!!

Hey guys, if anyone else has been wondering how to put their fuelly sig in, heres a write up.

1. Find the URL to your Signature on the Fuelly Website. When looking at your Fuelly Profile, scroll down a bit and on the left side will be a link for the different signatures they offer.
2. Use the first link it offers, the Image BB Code one. You should copy everything it has in that box
3. Paste the code into your sig box.
4. Save your signature and then go back to the forums to make sure it's there.






If it's all done right it'll show up in the forums.


Admins, feel free to make this is a sticky if it's deemed useful enough

Hey guys, if anyone else has been wondering (I've gotten 3 requests already) how to put their fuelly sig in, heres a write up.

1. Find the URL to your Signature on the Fuelly Website. When looking at your Fuelly Profile, scroll down a bit and on the left side will be a link for the different signatures they offer.
2. Use the first link it offers, the BBCode one. But instead of using the entire BBCode, use "http://www.fuelly.com/sig-us/XXXXX.png" where the x's are replaced with whatever your sig location # is.
3. Under the "Edit Signature" area on your User CP (CruzeTalk), put in the URL for your Fuelly Sig Pic in the upload Signature Picture area and click upload.
4. Once that's done you should see your fuelly picture below the area your able to type information for the sig. Then you need to put "[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]" without the quotes somewhere in your signature.
5. Save your signature and then go back to the forums to make sure it's there.



If it's all done right it'll show up in the forums.

I'd like to add my 2 cents...thanks to you for getting me started. I modified mine to link to my fuelly account. Here is what my signature looks like:
{URL="http://www.fuelly.com/driver/ecosleeper/cruze"][SIGPIC][/SIGPIC][/URL}

Except the first and last { & } are replaced with [ & ]

What does it do to link back to your username and not the .png?

There are two different things going on in his 'code' for the sig. First, it's listing a URL to his Fuelly account (URL="http://www.fuelly.com/driver/ecosleeper/cruze"). The second part is inserting the sig picture as a link to the aforementioned account site. The only way you can do this is to have to sig picture uploaded directly, which is what my directions lay out.

It's basically making an uploaded picture a link.

I hope this answered your question?? :confused:

Ahh, a clickable signature... brilliant (I'm a little slow on the uptake).

And since we're talking about Fuelly, I will need to get my second tank on Monday and my avg is holding steady at 42.5 right now -- I really love this car.

Yeah, it doesn't appear to. Last night I filled up after averaging 44.7 mpg :) with an overall average of over 41 mpg. I believe it is because we upload the photo so it stays the same. Looks like you will have to delete and re-upload each time you want to update.

I've looked through the Fuelly website and it said that it may take up to 30 mins to refresh the signature picture. But I don't know if that applies to the way outlined above??

Yeah, tested it on one of the other forums I am on that allows linking to images in signatures (vice uploading like this one). Updated almost instantaneously. My guess is we will need to ask the mods to all off site linking to images for signatures to alleviate this hassle.

Alright guys, this thread has become kind of outdated now that we got the Image BB Code function enabled for signatures. Just follow the instructions on the fuelly site and it'll update when automatically when you add a fill up
