View Full Version : Need help with Dynamic Signature

12-21-2006, 12:37 AM
First off, I hope I'm hitting the right forum section with this post, if not I apologize in advance. I would also like to say hi to everyone since I just registered and am making my first post. I am just beginning to dabble a little in HTML and want to build my own website eventually, I do have experience in Visual Basic and C++ though and HTML seems fairly easy to learn the basics of. Anyhow on to my question,

I used to participate in a forum where some joker created a dynamic signature that took the user name of the person veiwing the post and inserted it into the signature line. The signature was something like xxx is a geek with xxx being the person who was reading the post at that time. If I were veiwing the signature here it would say ScareCrow25 is a geek as long as I was logged in but if I wasn't it would say Guest is a geek. I have tried to figure out how this was done but so far have been unsuccesful. Can anyone help me figure out how this is done and maybe even how to incorporate this into an image?

LOL! Why do you want to call us all geeks?!

The only way I'd think he could do that is to put php into his signature which called the username of the current viewer. I've not tried it and wouldn't advise it. Could be a good way to get kicked off a site!

Don't know how you'd do it with an image, per se. Don't really know what you'd want to do.
