If noticed some members on the forum have colored maps in their signatures. You may be asking yourself "How do you do that?".

 

Start by visiting this website:

http://visitedstatesmap.com

 

Select the states you have visited and choose the size you wish and click DRAW MAP.

*Please be considerate to others views on the forums by keeping the image around medium size*

 

Next you will be taken to a new page and underneath the map where it says "Copy and Paste Image URL:"

Copy the url, for example mine is:

http://visitedstatesmap.com/image/xlg.jpg - this is not your map unless you have been to zero states. This is an example.

 

Now go to your forum Signature to edit and put in the url:

 

It should now look like: example-map1.jpg.544e2f79d6872f11b1ba4ac3d463a30e.jpg

 

If you need help please discuss below.

I still can’t follow these directions. Here’s what my signature looks like. What am I doing wrong?

You were almost there Don, you just needed to remove the "{" "}" squiggly lines in the code. The reason I did that is because if I did not add that the website would pick it up as code and display an image instead of the actual code you need. There is an image below the post with how the code should look :)

Jason, I tried to update my map and of course I've failed again. I always waste 1-2 hours messing with this and give up. Here's what my signature looks like now. What am I doing wrong?

Ok the problem I found is that the image you are trying to use does not exist on their website. I put in the url https://visitedstatesmap.com/image/ALCOGAILIAKSMNMSMOMTNENMNCNDOKSCSDTNTXUTWY/med.jpg and I get a 404 error, which means it doesn't exist.

 

Instead, try recreating your map and then use the new url it gives you. If you need help I am here :).

From what I see on my post above, I seem to have succeeded. However, instead of copying the URL, I just copied the map itself. Does it appear the way it should regardless of the method? (That blank spot above Arizona will be filled in this month.) Thanks, Jason.

So, I did this again, as my map was out of date anyway...

I went to visitedstatesmap.com.

 

Click on some states, and color the map. I chose the smallest size. Click on copy and paste the url. Then, copy.

 

Go to your profile. Click on settings. Then, click on edit profile and arrow down to signature. DON'T CLICK ON LINK.

 

JUST PASTE THE URL YOU JUST COPIED FROM THE MAP WEBSITE.  Accept and close.

 

Hope this helps. Sherry

I thought I read, somewhere, that the map should only reflect where you've been in your Oliver.  Is this correct?  If yes,  I need to edit mine as we don't have our Oliver yet 😉

There’s no real rule on the map.  Most of us only count states we’ve camped in at least over night in our Oliver.  Just passing through a state doesn’t count.  Mike

Can signatures only be updated via a pc? I can't find the edit signature option on my account page on my android phone. 

Thx!

Hi, Chris. I had a hard time finding it on my android phone, too. 

go to my account, then account settings, settings area, and near the bottom you should see " signature."
