1. To make a custom signature, the first thing you need to do is make a page for your signature to be on. To do this, just go to your user page, add /sig to the end of the URL, and create the page. For example, mine is located at http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/User:10X_Kamehameha/sig


2. Next, you need to make a page to link to, so that your entire fancy signature-code doesn't show up on every page. To do this, make another page, which will be the same as your user page, but will have a 2 after /sig. For example, mine is located at http://dragonball.wikia.com/wiki/User:10X_Kamehameha/sig2


3. On the second page, in the middle where content would normally go in an article, put

{{User:______/sig}}

except, put your user name where the blank spot is. For example, for me, it reads: {{User:10X Kamehameha/sig}}


4. Next, you must go to your preferences, which are linked at the top right corner of the screen (You may need to hover over your user name in the type right to reveal the preferences link). Under User profile, find the box marked: Signature. In the signature box, put:

{{User:______/sig2}}

Again, put your user name in the blank space. Note that this time, you are putting the 2nd page in brackets, not the first, like last time. Now check (Done.svg) the box underneath that says I want to use wikitext in my signature.


5. Once all this is set up, you are finally ready to begin work on your signature, which will go on your first signature page (the first one you made, the one without the 2). Standard HTML applies, as well as wiki-text. Also, make sure that your signature includes a link to your user page. In case you are unfamiliar with HTML coding, I'll give you an easy example to get started. Try putting this on your signature page:

[[User:_______|<font color=green style=background:yellow>______</font>]]

Again, put your user name in the blank spots. If done correctly, it will like this 10X Kamehameha Notice how it links back to my user page. There are a large variety of colors to choose from, so try out different ones.


6. To put images in your signature, simply put the name of the image in double brackets (just like if you were making a link in an article) before, after, or somewhere within your existing signature. After the name of the image, put a pipe (one of these>>> | ), a number between 10 and 20 or so, and then the letters px. For example, try making your signature code look like this:

[[User:_______|<font color=green style=background:yellow>_______</font>]] [[File:Goku.jpg|20px]]

Your signature should look like this one 10X Kamehameha Goku


7. Text can be styled to be italicized or bold easily by using apostrophes around text. Two sets of apostrophes will make text italicized, and three sets will make it bold. In a signature, you could make use of these tools like so:

[[User:ReallyCoolUser|<font color=green style=background:yellow>'''Really''' Cool ''User''</font>]]

Your signature would then look like this Really Cool User
