Anyone know why my sig is pasting the whole code in everytime I use it rather than just subst'ing?

The nickname field in my preferences looks like this: {{subst:User:Percephene/sig}} <span style="color:#FF3399"><small>{{subst:#time:h:i, d F Y}}</small></span>

Wait, doesn't subst mean to paste in the whole code? --Bry 09:50, 10 May 2008 (EDT)
Dunno but it doesn't do that on uncyc and I used the exact same code? ~ Percephene ~ talk contribs 05:10, 11 May 2008
I'd suggest trying the sig with "subst" removed in both places -- if it doesn't do what you want then, you can put it back, right? --Bry 01:16, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
I mean both places in your code, not both places "here and Uncyc". --Bry 01:17, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
Theres only one subst, in the preferences bit, which I've removed and it still does it :( ~ Percephene ~ talk contribs 12:20, 12 May 2008
Argh, Mediawiki formatting. If you've been checking the Recent Changes, you'll see that it's more or less the only reason for about 90% of the sixty-odd (I exaggerate) changes I made between tonight and last night... Here's what you need to do -- make a second sig page, say User:Percephene/sig2, consisting only of: {{User:Percephene/sig}}, and then change your nickname in your preferences to {{subst:User:Percephene/sig2}} <span style="color:#FF3399"><small>{{subst:#time:h:i, d F Y}}</small></span>. And hopefully when I sign my name here it'll say Bry and not Percephene... --Bry 21:06, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
Yay!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!! Perhaps they have some hack at Uncyc to get around that. Wow so annoying!! :D Glad its fixed now ta! ~ Percephene ~ talk contribs 01:26, 12 May 2008
There's the {{nosubst}} template, which avoids subst'ing stuff from your sig. And then set your sig box to {{subst:nosubst|User:Percephene/sig}}. Simple! Spang 14:55, 12 May 2008 (EDT)
