Signature Not Appearing

    I am expecting to see signatures in the threads, but the only way I can see them is viewing the profile page (which is cumbersome). If I check "Show people's signatures with their messages", that seems to have no discernable effect. Am I missing something obvious?

    Thanks.

    P.S. I couldn't figure out what the best forum (this is a question, not necessarily a suggestions). Sorry if there is a better forum.

    In my experience, they only show up if your viewing the PB on a desktop or laptop.

    @Bill The Baptist You are correct! I just chose to show it as desktop site and magically appeared.

    Then I will switch this from a question to a suggestion and suggest "we show signatures on mobile devices'.

    Try turning your phone to view a thread as "landscape".

    @Tom Hart thanks that works. (It makes no sense to me, because landscape actually shows less text.)

    Yes, my smartphone's keyboard completely blocks the text. Maybe you can modify your request to view signatures in portrait mode.

    Benevolent overloads, please consider showing signatures for mobile devices in portrait view.

    Watch it. This is a Christian forum.

    Hey now! If OPC ministers can compare the Geneva gown to a Harry Potter costume, I think I am good.:stirpot:

    This is a Tapatalk issue that has been noticed and complained about since 2013. I don't think anything can be done from our end.

    Look this over, in particular the section related to signatures:
    https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tap...ial-user-preferences-and-settings-t41435.html

    I would be happy if folks would notice that posts made from Tapatalk that show the usual "Sent from Galaxy Note using Tapatalk" etc would adjust their signature settings to replace this default behavior.

    An FYI, the behavior I see is via Chrome through a phone. Not Tapatalk.

    More details please.

    Are you accessing PB directly via Chrome just as you would with a computer? If so, select viewing the Desktop view and determine if you still cannot see signatures.

    Or,
    Are you accessing Tapatalk and then accessing PB via the phone?

    Also note that PB does not display signatures to folks not logged in when visiting the site. "Guests" are not able to see sigs in any posts.

    Chrome on a phone (Android). Confirmed desktop view and landscape view both show signature. See post #5 & #6 on why portrait is desired on a phone.

    I was using Tapatalk a couple months ago, but no longer. I am signed in.

    Is the electronic rendering of the keyboard dismissible or is it always rendered?

    This is exactly how I view and results are the same. Landscape is the only way I can see signatures.

    Keyboard only shows when a textbook has focus. That is annoying in all sites. It is only connected to the signature suggestion in that it is a factor in avoiding landscape as much as possible.
