    I recently changed companies, and my signature for forum posts still has my old company name.  How do I change it?  Please advise.  Thanks.

  • Oops, yep, signature - click on "My Settings" over on the right of this, or any forum page.

  • In my personal opinion, if your signature is an embedded dynamic object,
    it can be automatically changed in all your previous posts after you update your profile.
     
    If you signature has already been converted to text content in your previous posts, they cannot be automatically changed.
    Your new signature will only take effect in your new post.

  • On the right hand side right beneath your profile you have 

    My Forum Links

    My Settings

    ...

    Click on My Settings and scroll down to the signature box. The signature will only be changed for new posts after you save your change, old posts will still show old signature.

    The in on the left side under your avatar, there should be a black box that says "Edit My Profile".  Click that to get to the settings.

  • Kamin of Ressik,

    I have the "Edit My Profile" page displayed, but I see nothing WRT my signature format for forum posts.  Please advise.  Thanks.

    P.S.  My signature originally said "QA Engineer, Gladiator Innovations", but I have to keep changing it to my current role/company every time I post.  This is why I'm asking the question, because I cannot locate the settings for my signatures in posts.
