    Most people who post here end their comment with a listing of their car and its features. I can't figure out a way to have that list as a repeatable signature. Is there a way, or do people just add it each time? If so, do they copy and paste from some saved offline source?

    Click on your user name in the upper right hand part of the page when signed in. Choose the "about me" tab in the resulting page, and then add these details to your bio. information. They will then show whenever you post something.

    If it doesn't work, wait until you've posted a few times. To prevent spam, some features aren't available from the get go.

    Thanks to both of you. I can't find any place in my bio information in which to list the car details, so I assume it's because I haven't posted much. I'll post a few more, and try again.

    I think it shows up after 5-6 posts, so you're almost there. :) And, welcome to the forum!

    To edit your signature, make sure you are logged in to TMC.
    Click on the 'Settings' item in the very top RH corner of the page.
    This takes you to the page where you can edit your signature \ Avatar etc.
    They should be all listed on the LHS under My profile.
    If not you need to wait until you have accumulated a few more posts.
    When you add your signature info it will appear in all future and previous posts.

    Thanks, again. Looks like, on the settings page, I need one more post to avail myself of the feature.

    Looks like I'm "Not allowed to have a signature." Was it something I said? (I assume it's about # of posts. I'll get there eventually.)

    Sid, you'll get there eventually; as Jerry mentioned we keep some features limited to deter spammers, those limit keys are also changed from time to time. We're proud that we can keep the forum largely spam-free.

    Welcome to TMC, enjoy the forum!
