    My signature not showing up on some posts

    Hello All,
    A curious business, but probably due to something I have done.
    I recently added a signature, and it showed up on a later post which was new thread.
    Subsequent posts which were replies to existing threads had "show sig" ticked but no signature appeared.
    In a recent reply, I edited the post, selected "preview" which showed the sig. but when posted the sig was nowhere to be seen.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Cheers,
    Terry

    G'day Terry,

    To my knowledge this is standard function with all subsequent replies to all members, I have also noticed this, but I have also noticed that it appears to all members, so nothing to be concerned about.

    Regards,
    Craig

    Your signature shows either in the first post at the start of a thread by you or your first reply to a thread.

    It is a forum software default and is not a fault.

    ^what Andrew said, your signature only appears once per thread. If you reply to the same thread several times, it will not appear each time, just the first.

    As you experienced, it will show in preview post, but as soon as you submit, the site checks if you have posted to the thread previously and then ignores your signature, if you have.

    As an example, posting for the second time, my sig no longer shows. ( I hope )
