Forum signatures from Raptr?

I was trying to get my signature block from Raptr to work on the forums here. They give several different options (html, bbcode, and image links) but I cannot seem to get them to work on the forums here. Is this even possible without uploading a static picture? The Raptor sig updates as I get achievements and such so putting a static pic up would never get updated :(

    The PA forums use their own markup system. If you can post the HTML form of your sig, I'm sure myself or someone else could rewrite it in a PA-friendly format for you to use. Use CODE tags around the text, like so:
    [C0DE]Paste the HTML here[/C0DE]

    I'm guessing the code probably links to a script that returns an image. As far as I'm aware, the forums tags don't allow that, it only works for valid image file extensions.  You can work around it by fiddling with the server set up so that a link to an image executes the script instead, but I would imagine that isn't an option available to you.

    There should be one that just gives you a direct link to an image. The TA one in my sig updates automatically and I believe that's how it works.

    Here is the HTML form of the sig
    <a href="http://raptr.com/ElmoFuntz?src=em_ach"><img alt="Raptr Forum Signature" src="http://raptr.com/badge/a1f60914d383da5d411baed4e3f65dda/ach.png" style="border:none;"></a>
    

    I tried the image version
    <img alt="Raptr Forum Signature" src="http://raptr.com/badge/a1f60914d383da5d411baed4e3f65dda/ach.png" style="border:none;">
    

    but the preview just gave me the code line :(

    Did you try just using the url for the image itself in img tags?

    PS, This image is 20 pixels too tall for forum rules.

    If you hit quote you can see the markup.

    Awesome thanks... since it's 20pixels too high I am wondering if I can use html and put in size tags to shrink it? Unfortunately the image itself is auto generated.

    I'm not sure if the html shrinking will work, but you can try. I don't know the code to make html work on here, but you can try Kate's thing.
