Forum:Signature Problems

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

I seem to be having problems with entering my signature into my preferences, and since there's no specific person I can ask, here I go (anyone can reply, by the way).

This is what I want my signature to be:
Rtzxy Reflect.jpg Reflect!!!
Raw code:
<span style="background-color: orange; border: 2px solid blue; border-radius: 7px;">[[User:Rtzxy|<span style="color:yellow">'''Rtzxy''']] [[File:Reflect.jpg|20px]] [[User talk:Rtzxy|<span style="color:brown">'''''Reflect!!!'''</span>]]</span>
However, when I enter it into my preferences, it says that there's an error in it. That's the thing: I can't find any errors in it. Am I overlooking something or what? Rtzxy SmashSig.jpeg Smashing! 21:02, 30 October 2014 (EDT)

Remove the spaces after colons in the span tag like this:
<span style="background-color:orange; border:2px solid blue; border-radius:7px;">[[User:Rtzxy|<span style="color:yellow">'''Rtzxy''']] [[File:Reflect.jpg|20px]] [[User talk:Rtzxy|<span style="color:brown">'''''Reflect!!!'''</span>]]</span>
To prove it:

It still doesn't work; while it works on this page, it won't work when I enter it in my preferences. Rtzxy SmashSig.jpeg Smashing! 21:10, 30 October 2014 (EDT)
Put this on a Sticky Note on Windows (I don't know about Mac) and when you want to type it instead of typing ~~~~ you type in copy and paste it from that Sticky Note. (It's more effort, but it works.)

  1. I use an iPod to edit, so the Stickey Note thing could be a problem.
  2. Isn't there another way to add my signature into my preferences and work?

Another question: can my signature even have backgrounds and borders and the such? I want to know, so I can fix it; if it can, I'll try to fix it. If it can't, then… Rtzxy SmashSig.jpeg Smashing! 22:26, 30 October 2014 (EDT)

I found the problem: you didn't close the color:yellow span in the first link. This should work:
<span style="background-color:orange;border:2px solid blue;border-radius:7px;">[[User:Rtzxy|<span style="color:yellow">'''Rtzxy'''</span>]] [[File:Reflect.jpg|x20px]] [[User talk:Rtzxy|<span style="color:brown">'''''Reflect!!!'''</span>]]</span>

It is success. Thank you!
