I copied/pasted the html code for my member badge into my vBulletin web site but it doesn't work. All I get is the html code and not the badge image. What's wrong?

Did you paste it into a post where it is expecting [BBCODE], or did you paste it into one of the HTML templates?

I see it has html turned off (the default setting).

Huh?? If it is your forum, you can edit the forum templates which are all HTML.

I figured it out, was a matter of enabling html in signatures.

Oh, you want to put the certificate in the post signature? You don't want to do that by enabling HTML!!! It can be a serious security breach to allow anyone to post HTML within signatures.

Instead, use BBCode in signatures:
