go to the board preferences tab in the user control panel, then select edit display options.
that's where the check box is, however mine is selected but it's still not displaying... :?

They've been turned off globally.

There was debate previously on BossArea about signatures and the consensus was they distract from reading the posts.

The profile settings section still has the editor showing but they should never show in an actual post.

I endorse this approach. Do we really want to have to look at the same sig over and over? I know I don't.
The way it is now the posts are easy to read and there's no junk in between causing a distraction.

Isn't there sections to put info about yourself if you want it to appear in the members list?

The members list only has 'location' and 'website' for additional information.

However. If you create a signature it still appears in your profile page, it just won't appear on any of your posts.

Perfect. People can still see all that stuff you want them to know without having to be bombarded with it everytime you post.

Well you've put it in your "location" info, so I guess you don't need a sig...
