Thanks for the reply to my queries.
I am aware that majority of forums have ads that pay for the bills.
Those forums only ask members to donate money in order to keep the site running.
In spite of the thousands of members on those site, only but a few who have money donate and are made VIP members.
Unfortunately I belong to those vast majority that do not donate as I am a retired pensioner.
However, I make up for it by posting information regularly on the forum that help the members to resolve whatever issues they may have or are experiencing.
Private messages are merely a way of getting in touch with a particular person to have a private chat, or make a suggestion to an Admin or the
owner of the site as to what may be happening within the forum or to keep a close eye on certain members or a particular member,
or even issues relating to the forum that needs to be fixed. This has nothing at all to do with signatures, or breaching the regulations set up
by the forum.
On the subject of signatures ..... as long as the signature is not a link to a personal or profitable website, then there isn't a problem.
A signature may just be an animation of their username and nothing more that is placed at the bottom of their post instead of the
typical smiley icons made available to them on the forum.
My monitor resolution has always been set at 1280 x 1024 and therefore should not be experiencing the horizontal scroll bar.
Sorry to say that the extra buttons do not work in spite of me highlighting the word or words.
Just between yourself and myself ...... I am 70yrs of age. I have a bachelor's degree in engineering which was my first love.
I do have a master's degree in IT for the last 25 yrs. and have a deep knowledge and understanding of how things work.
I give a lot of my time to those who need my help for no charge at all.
Hence my reason for being here on this forum.
It's something I enjoy very much.
Thanks once again for replying.
Cheers, and have a good day.

Private Message - like signatures - require that you be a member here for a while... You can always use the feedback forum.
You can adjust your monitors resolution to avoid having to scroll.
The extra buttons work well when used properly. HIGHLIGHT a word and then click the B to make that word Bold. etc....
