SA is proud to announce the next great addition to the lineup of fun stuff for the members.

The userbar mod :clap: ...make your own professional looking userbars,just like the ones I have in my signature now. It's very easy, user friendly,and the results are awesome ! The main thing you need to do to create them is if you want to use a custom background such as an image you need to size it to 350x19. Other than that its all just customize it the way you want, add your text (it autoformats the text for you when you type it in) and make sure you update the user bar each time you see the "update" button, then save it and it even gives you the image url with the IMG tags already to paste into your signature. You can even make rotating user bars using the static bars you've already created. Meaning if you make 3 or 4 user bars, you can go to the add rotating bar link and pick which bars you want to rotate through.


The maximum allowed static userbars per user is 15. The maximum number of rotating userbars per user is 5. *** Although having 15 bars in your signature is a bit much so just be tasteful in how many you want to put in, and remember any images you use fall under the forum rules and guidelines...no porn !**

Dan has added the link to the Navbar on top of the forums.

Have at it and have fun.

Here are some I made tonight..

Nice job making those TG! We're going to put BR-7 out of business.....lol This does a good job but I don't think they are quite as good as his.
Hope you all enjoy this. It's pretty easy to do which should make it fun for everyone!

Yeah his are exceptional!!!! Especially his animated ones like the KISS one he made me in my sig now, that one is awesome ! And the Steeler one he made before is simply the best !

They look real nice for something so easy to do. Remember you can use virtually any background or combination of images that you want in the bar, just be sure to size it correctly ahead of time and the possibilities are endless.

The instructions in there are actually pretty good. I was playing around with it last night just going off the instructions and I was able to come up with mine. give them a good read and see if that helps any Blitz.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-01-2006, 06:57 PM
Yeah I made those ones last night in about 15 min total for all of them. It's basically just fillin the blank. If you need help blitz, I'll make one for you just lemme know what you want.

You have to make sure you update at each step and then save it at the end.

AZ_Steeler
12-01-2006, 07:45 PM
I noticed that too, it has to do with options you are selecting like Random User Options or something... just keep it plain text.

12-01-2006, 08:04 PM
i tried it and nothin showed up

BlitzburghRockCity
12-01-2006, 08:11 PM
Make sure you choose either a background OR plain color...if you try both you'll get a red x instead of your image.

I'm trying to make one with a Steelers Logo. Anyone have an idea of where I can find one that fits within the correct size???

BlitzburghRockCity
12-01-2006, 10:13 PM
786, if you have anytype of photo program like PSP, photoshop, gimp, etc..you can make a 350x19 image and then just paste a steeler logo in it. Save it to your computer then upload it when you make the userbar.

If you dont have one, let me know I'll make a userbar for you in whatever colors you want , with a logo.

You can use this for a logo if you want SCM. Not a very good cut. Just put it in the secondary overlay image.

make sure the image you are trying to use is a .jpg, .gif, .png, file or it won't take. also make sure you have it sized down to 350x19. If you need help just lemme know.

12-02-2006, 01:40 PM

Steelersfan
12-02-2006, 01:47 PM
You can use this program (free) to change image types.

.bmp should work though. PM me the pic and I'll check it for you.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-02-2006, 02:52 PM
You can also use MSpaint to save it as a different file type if need be..but infranview is good utility, lots of people use it :bigthumb:

You made it 350x19? It has to be that size or it won't work.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-02-2006, 04:46 PM
09, if you want to PM the pic you want, I'll check it out and size it down for you and make sure its the right file type to use. :bigthumb:

12-02-2006, 06:11 PM
no doubt, as many creations as we have we'll have to host them somewhere else since there is a limit.

Also just a helpful hint Ive found, after you've got your bar looking just the way you want it,before you save it, just right click and save it to your computer, then you can upload it to imageshack or wherever and not have to worry about deleting it off here and using too much space.

Prosdo
12-02-2006, 06:14 PM
If anyone wants any of the images in my userbars send me a PM and I'll send them to you.

I was wondering if you could do this, I don't know if you could or not. I went to three colleges in my lifetime I will give you the logo of the first one cause it will be hard to find.

1. Spring Arbor University ---- http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/6098/saclogogn3.gif (http://imageshack.us)

2. University of Toledo

3. Kent State University

If you can try and get the three logo in animation rotation in the 1. 2. and 3. format it would be awesome, put Alumni next to the name of the institutions. Thanks a million. If I had some damn points, I would donate for this.
