The Forum donor awards go in your SIGNATURE and if you don't know how to edit that, we've created these instructions. It is actually a simple process and it takes more time to read about it than to actually do it. If you just can't figure it out contact us and we'll do it for you. But it really is a good idea to learn how to edit your signature since it's a great place to highlight your collecting interests or to perhaps share the military background of you or family members and, of course, your collecting interests!
WE HAVE ADDED A YOU TUBE VIDEO SHOWING HOW TO MODIFY YOUR FORUM SIGNATURE

If you still use Internet Explorer IE 11, that browser has a bug that may prevent you from pasting into the SIGNATURE editing area. Using another browser is a good cure.
Since many forum members already have donor ribbons we will start off showing how to add a new one. The ribbons seem to look best when the bottom row is the same size as or wider than the top row, if you have multiple rows. If you have more than four ribbons you should have two rows. Also they look best when cenered, much like ribbons on uniforms.
Again, if you have no ribbons or an empty Signature, scroll down the page to see how to add one, but first off everyone needs to copy this text, which is the address for the 2019 image:
Next, go to the forum and click on your USER NAME in the upper right corner of the page:
When you click on that is will bring up a menu: click on My Profile:
When the new page comes up, click on EDIT PROFILE:
On the left side of the new page click on Signature:
That will bring up a page which looks like this (this signature already has ribbons from previous years):
Next place your cursor after the bottom right image (in this case the 2012 ribbon).
Next use your computer's PASTE command to paste the image address. It will look like this:
The last thing to do is to scroll down the page and click Save Changes:
If your Signature is empty, place your cursor in the text box, paste the image address and then select all the text:
Next click the CENTER tool:
Then scroll down and click Save Changes:
That should do it. Again, if you have a problem contact us, and, again, thanks so much for your support of the US Militaria Forum as we enter our second decade of serving US militaria collectors throughout the world.
