How do I stick that cool image in my WebTV email?
Create an image, then click on "Save for webtv email (signature)" and
follow the instructions.
All I see is HTML stuff in my signature
The first <HTML> must be at the very top of your signature box.
Move your cursor to just before the <HTML> and press backspace a few
times just to make sure.
How to I delete the contents of my signature?
To remove your current signature, goto Mail -> Settings -> Signature and then press CMD-A, and then press delete.
I have more than one image in my email signature, how to I remove them (or just get one)?
The easiest way is to delete your current one, and then copy the new one in.
How do I replace the image in my email signature?
First delete your old one, then copy the new one in.
How do I set the background color of an image?
Check the options when you first generate the image, if you see
backgroundColour as an option, then you can click on the colour
to change it. Else it is not possible to change.
How do I set the background of my whole email?
This is not easily done. It can be done, but it is quite tricky.
Refer to your WebTV manual. You can set the "stationary". This is the easiest
way. (sorry, I don't know exactly how to do that)
How do I add a link to my site in my signature
Just after the <HTML> in your signature, enter:
<a href=http://community-2.webtv.net/myname/MyName/>Visit my home page</a><p>
(Don't forget to change the URL to point to *your* homepage)
I get the instructions in my signature, not the image. What did I do wrong?
When you press CMD-A to copy everything, make sure that the cursor is flashing in the TEXT AREA, and that the yellow border is around box. So what you need
to do now is delete your signature and start again.
How do I change my signature to do this or that?
We are doing our best to make it as easy as possible to set your
signature. Your signature when used properly has almost all the possibilities
that are available in a web page. So to use it to it's full potential
you need to know all about HTML. We can't possibily teach everyone
how to code all the HTML elements, and so we recommend that you check
out the HTML Resources on our resource page.
I get HTML and not the image. What did I do wrong?
You must make sure that the <HTML> is at the very top of your signature. There can't even be an empty line above it. The easiest way to check this is to get your cursor (the flashing thing) to the left of the <HTML> and then press delete a bunch of times.
How do I change the text (so it says my name or something else)?
Where the box says "text" enter the text that you wish the logo to say.
Can I move my image/signature to the top?
Sorry, but no you can't. (At least I don't know how)
How do I make my signature appear centered on the page?
Right after the <HTML> at the top of your signature add <CENTER>,
and just before the </HTML> at the bottom of your signature add </CENTER>. Everything in your signature will now appear centered on the page.
My image goes away after about one hour. Why?
Well it does say that the image is only stored for one hour. But you
are in luck. Press "Save image permanently" and follow the instructions
for the new image location.
I want a picture of xxx in my email, can you help?
No sorry, we can't. We don't currently offer that service, and if
you try to do it someother way, you run into "bandwidth stealing" issues.
We allow you to use our logos that are created on our site, but that
is all at the moment. This may change in the future.
How do I create a web page?

Input descriptions For Transloader.com
The "URL" input:
This is where the actual address of the image, midi, or page you wish to transload should be entered.
The "FTP Server" input:
This is where you will enter the FTP (File Transfer Protocol) for the website server you are transloading to. Below are several examples of what these are.
Talkcity ~> home.talkcity.com
Tripod ~> ftp.tripod.com
Geocities ~> ftp.geocities.com
Angelfire ~> ftp.angelfire.com
Note:If your website server name does not appear above you can write to the support service for your site. You should also be able to find this information somewhere on your site.
The "Username" input:
This is where you will enter the name you used when you signed up for your website.
The "Password" input:
This is where you will enter the password you used when you signed up for your website.
The "Subdirectory" input: (optional)
This is where you will enter the name of a specific subdirectory (which you create in your website files) you wish to transload your image, midi, or page to. For example, if you have a subdirectory you named gif, jpg, or midi, you would enter /gif, /jpg, or /midi. Then after entering your subdirectory name whatever it is your transloading will be sent directly into that directory. If you don't have any subdirectories just leave this blank.
The "Rename" input: (optional)
This is where you can rename the image, midi, or page your transloading to whatever want.
NOTE: You must be careful when doing this because you may already have something in your files under the same name. If you have an image in your files named something like "coolback.gif" and are transloading a different image to your files and should happen to name it the same thing the previous image will be over-written (erased) and replaced with the new image. Once that is done you cannot retrieve the previous image. The same is true if you should happen to have a webpage you worked hard on and send something to your files under the same name...all your hard work will be lost. And all files must end with the same file type as the one your transloading...such as .gif or .jpg or .html...you cannot change these endings.
The "Transload" button:
This is where you start the actual transload process to move images and/or files to your website. Just click on transload and your image or file will be moved to the destination you specified.
The "Scrapbook" Uploader:
This is used to move images to your Webtv "Scrapbook". Enter your image address then click on "Scrapbook Uploader" and your image will be added to your Webtv scrapbook and then can be used in your email signature or Pagebuilder.
