    How to List My Stats in Each of My Posts

    NOTE: IF YOU ARE NEWLY REGISTERED, BEFORE YOU CAN SAVE YOUR SIGNATURE, OR MAKE YOUR FIRST POST, YOU MUST FIRST RESPOND TO A CONFIRMATORY EMAIL THAT WILL BE SENT TO YOU FROM THE FORUM. LOOK FOR THIS EMAIL AND JUST CLICK TO CONFIRM -- AND YOU'LL BE READY TO GO.
    P.S. SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS. LOL

    Howdy,

    Welcome to the forum. Are you wondering how to automatically list all your statistics at the bottom of each post as others do?

    That's a great question.

    Here is how to navigate to where you can do this. First, you might need to create a profile if you haven't done so yet.

    Go to SETTINGS (on the right side of the toolbar at the top of the screen)

    Go to MY SETTINGS (in the far left column)

    Go to EDIT SIGNATURE (or create a profile first, if needed)

    There is a limited number of characters you can type, so you'll quickly find out why so many other signatures are heavily abbreviated.

    Good luck! If you have any problems, give me a PM.

    I listed my numbers on my signature line and for a few posts, they appeared. Now I do not see them, what do I need to do to get them to reappear?

    I would go back to the set-up and see if the numbers are still there. If not, you might want to redo it and be sure to save it. When stuff like this happens, I would tend to make a permanent copy (in a word processing program) so that you can just copy-paste if it happens again.
