Getting your bike displayed on the left of your posts

This requires a certain amount of trial/error to get it to 'look right', but once you get it down it'll look exactly like it did under the old forum (see my info to the left), and it works within the structure of the new forum code.

Go to User CP -> Edit Profile

Scroll down to 'Additional Information'

What you're going to do is add your bike type to the 'Location' field. The tricky part to get it to look 'right' is to get your 'location' to take up as much of the first line as you can without it going over. This is trial/error. Like for my location, you could try:

Tampa, FL
Tampa, Florida
Tampa, Florida, USA
Tampa, Florida, United States

etc etc etc...just trial/error until it takes up as much of the first line as you can without going over. Then just add your bike type after that in that box, and as long as the 'location' is close enough to taking up the whole first line, it'll scroll down a line and put your bike type on the second line. Then if you have more than one bike, same deal, get your first bike to take up the whole 2nd line, then add the 2nd bike.

Note that extra spaces are NOT counted. If you need to throw in extra characters to get it to look right, you have to use real characters.

So my 'Location' box in my User CP actually looks like this:

Tampa, Florida, USA 1998 Ducati 916 Monoposto 2003 Kawasaki ZX-6R 636

But when it wraps to fit the space the forum provides it, it displays like this:

Location: Tampa, Florida, USA
1998 Ducati 916 Monoposto
2003 Kawasaki ZX-6R 636

Even with the trial/error it should only take you a few minutes to set up right. Let me know if you have any questions!

All you have to do is type it in, man. lol

I had mine in my sig for a while too, but so many people were complaining about it (and I guess no one wanted to just put it in their sig), so here it is. lol
