This is really a hotmail question but I posted this on the hotmail forum and have had no replies (I don't think they have the same ethic as Yola's forum) so I'm hoping someone can help me here.
I have a hotmail account where I use a personal email signature consisting of a few lines of text and my company logo, the logo simply has to be stored in file manager and copied and pasted on to the hotmail page, the problem is I want to change my logo image but the right click, copy image gives you the HTML code below which is massive and exceeds hotmails character limit, see below

the actual file name of the image is Email Logo.jpg so I don't really understand what the above is all about, my old logo obviously had a much shorter code as this displayed OK.
Does anyone know how I can shorten this so it works.

 Hi David

If your email signature is stored in the Yola File Manager, then you can copy the image URL into the Hotmail page.  An example of the full file path for images will look something like this:

http://www.yourdomain.com/resources/m...

Please try that to see if it helps.  If you need more help, let us know - hopefully we'll be able to help you here!

Hi Nazlie
Thanks for the quick reply, I tried your suggestion and all you get is the actual text, as far as I can make out there is only one method to add an image to the personal signature facility

Taken from the hotmail forum

It is possible to append pictures or images on your signature provided that the images are Web based or taken from a website. To make your photo web-based, upload the image to Skydrive. Just sign in to your account at http://www.skydrive.live.com/ and upload it there.

Here’s how to set it up on your account:

1. Login to your account.

2. Click “Options” located at the upper-right side of the page.

3. Select “More Options”

4. Click on “Personal e-mail signature” link under “Writing email”

5. Open another browser and visit the website with the image that you want to attach to your signature.

6. Copy the image by right-clicking on it and selecting “Copy.”

7. On the signature page, type the information that you want to append to your outgoing messages and paste the picture on your signature window by pressing “Ctrl” + “V” (wait for the image to load).

8. Click “Save.”

I've also found out that the character limit is 4000, as stated above I've been using my old logo for ages with no problems, its simply the length of the code for the new logo which is causing the problem

Hi, David,

Are you copying from the published site? What browser are you using? When using Firefox 3.6.17, I get only the url like this: http://www.leathersolutions.org/resou.... Not sure where all that code is coming from.

Hi Diane
Well done, when I initially set my old signature and logo up I to was using Firefox 3, since then I've upgraded to 4 which is what I used today to set the new signature up. I've just gone through the same steps using IE9 and the new signature and logo are perfect so for some strange reason Firefox 4 is producing all that usless code when copying the image.

Firefox 4 is very buggy right now! I have not upgraded yet and don't plan to until the bugs are worked out.

Probably a good idea although Firefox 5 should be released this month, I think Mozilla are trying to copy Google with quick releases and then fixing any bugs on the run instead of releasing only when they're stable.

Great to see that Diane was able to help you resolve this issue, David. Yes, a few of us have not yet upgraded to Firefox 4 because of the bugs. Let's hope all the bugs have been resolved in Firefox 5!
