Default Can't see other's signature

Hello Guys,

my problem is that I can't see the signature of the other users in their posts - tried out logging in on different PC's but the problem is always the same.

Is there a setting where I can say something like "Show other signatures" or is this a general problem?

Thank you for your help!

Not all users have a signature.

We switched from wowBB to vBulletin for forums software last year, and we did not have signatures turned on in wowBB. So, many members don't have a signature in their profile (since they've never added one since we changed forums software). For example, I don't have one in my profile yet.

I'm unaware of any problem that prevents you from seeing signatures in posts from users that have them, unless you've got some kind of browser add-on that may be filtering them some how.

Are you saying that you can't see any signatures at all in any posts?

That's right, Jim! Doesn't matter which browser I use, I can't see nothing. I checked the user's page to see if they have a signature and they had one that I couldn't see

Ahhh.

It does look like the forums have a setting for displaying signatures in posts. I'd never paid any attention to it being there. Chances are, you set it to Off (unchecked the box to display them) when you joined the forums and setup your profile and other settings.

If you click on the User CP (Control Panel) menu choice at the top of forums pages here, you'll go to a screen with some choices on the left side of the page. Look under "Settings and Options" and you'll see an "Edit Options" menu choice. If you select it and scroll down on the page, you'll find a section for "Display Post Elements". One of those is for Signatures. Simply check the box for "Show Signatures", then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "Save Changes" and that should solve the issue. Here's a direct link to that page:
