Portable ID Guide
As part of the recent update on the PlayStation website, we now have the ability to create a 'Portable ID'.
This guide was created to help you create your 'Portable ID', and also to show you how to use it as a signature on the PlayStation forums.
If you don't know what one looks like, here is an example of one;
As you can see, it shows your PSN ID and Avatar.
You can also select your favourite game, favourite platform and also your mood from a drop down list.
Over time, there will be other features added to the Portable ID.
Looks good right? Here is how to get your own; (Click on the images for the full size)
Visit the 'My PlayStation Network' section of the PlayStation site.
If you already have a PSN account, you simply log in with your registered details, if you have forgotten your password, you should click the 'Forgotten your Password?' button.
If you wish to create a PSN account, you may do so by clicking the aptly named 'Create Account' button and then make your account.
You are now ready to create your Portable ID.
You choose your current mood, favourite game, and favourite format by clicking on the arrow to provide the full list of choices in a drop down box.
You select the theme you wish to use by clicking on the radio button to the left of your desired theme.
Once you are happy with your selections, click on the 'Update' button.
Once it has updated you should see your changes on the preview of your Portable ID, you can make changes but don't forget to click the 'Update' button.
When you are finished updating your Portable ID, you will want to show it off of course.
The PlayStation website luckily provides codes which can be used in most places, ready for us to copy and paste.
For most forums, you should use the code provided in the 'Forums' box, if you are having problems displaying your Portable ID on other forums feel free to ask for help, but I will leave it at that for now in this guide.
The PlayStation forums however, will not display your Portable ID correctly if you use the code provided in the 'Forums' box, so here is how to get your Portable ID into your signature on these forums.
You must be signed in to the forums, I assume you already are if you have done the above.
On the top of the forums, click the 'My Profile' link, it is on the right of 'Logout' and to the left of 'Dashboard'.
Now, you can copy and paste the code from the 'Web' box displayed on the 'My Portable ID' page.
You may fill out any other details you wish to, and once you are done click the 'Save Changes' button and your done.
I hope that this guide has been a solution to any problems you may have been having displaying your Portable ID on the forums, if you still have any issues however, feel free to ask for help.
Any chance we can get some more PS Plus themes for the portable IDs, all the good ones are going in the standard themes catagory and there haven't been any new PS Plus themes for ages! G
I was also thinking that earlier we need some more variety for PS+ theme backgrounds. I was thinking of a change earlier but there's not much of a choice.
I think it's also about time trophy information auto updated, third party trophy signatures can do so it's about time the official portable ID did.

Yeah what he said!
I posted in another thread relating to this. Also hoping for some more PS+ themes. Any chances?
LATEST PLATINUM: 3D Dot Game Heroes
I like the new sly cooper card
Sony need to sort out the trophy info tho it not displaying correctly.
My portable ID stopped updating ages ago....I try to edit and update it but it stays the same. Using the one from the US version of the site now instead...this one works OK. :(
Yaster - quick question about the Portable ID's - why are they sized at 550px wide as this seems to be too big for the forum and it resizes it (so it's not so clear) to approx 500px
you can see this on the post above - the pic he posts to show the new ones is normal size, then his sig is smaller as the forum resizes it.
seems strange that they aren't set-up to work 100% correctly with the official forum?
