    • Coding question I guess?? How come the signature preview display is soooo much different than what your sig actually turns out like? It drives me insane because I had this beautifully set up sig and had to get rid of half of it because the preview was not the same as the result.
    • I can't say I have this problem at all. What browser do you use? It may be related to outside factors because in coding my signatures, the preview is almost always accurate.

i also use google chrome, and meraki said that he does as well. it might be an issue with what you have the site width set as. i have mine set as 1350 atm, and i haven't had to change my signature since i changed it so idk if it works/is a factor, but it might help? the issues for me resulted when i had it as the default width. maybe try messing around with it

    • Mines on 1450, would that make much of a difference? What zoom percentage are you on your browser?

    • I have mine set at 1400 with browser zoom percentage at normal, or not zoomed in. I only ever have issues viewing signatures and previewing while on mobile but nothing with my desktop. I’m also using chrome.

      Have you provided pictures of the differences you are seeing?

I totally understand your issue as I have the same. To be honest, either you're making them very long or something to that effect :3 I just keep open two different tabs, one on the control panel where I edit the signature and another on my page. To check if it looks good, try submitting it over and over again to see what it actually looks like on your player page. I donno if that helps?
EDIT: Oh okay, if you need me to, I might be able to fix the coding. I think it's just a coding issue. Especially if you're using the "Left" command too much.

    • (Next time we could probably move this coding talk to my offered coding support server that way this thread isn't clogged. I am also making a bug thread.)
      However, your issue is a matter of spacing a bit more beneath your code. Find your last align before the bottom image and hit enter then place the color=transparent]xxxxx[/color] and it should give you the necessary space.

    • The coding itself isn't the issue though, I know how to fix that. It's that the preview shows the coding has no issues, but the actual signature isn't the same as what the preview shows, so it's misleading.

      Anyways, thanks! I won't clog this thread again.

    • Allow me to show what is causing it then. You have an imbalance of lines that can translate into any coding preview or post. The signature area is much smaller than normal therefore sometimes line differences don't pick up too well until you've submitted it, but it is the only issue difference I have ever come across and it should be an easy fix of properly leveling the lines. The difference can be seen here and the red line marks where the image is getting snagged:
