Can I put HTML or BB code in signatures? Or can I only put a plain image in my signature? I belong to a couple other websites I enjoy and try to put the little clickable images for other websites I enjoy into my sig lines when possible. :-)

Hi Letitia;

This forum does a funny thing with a URLs for example your url (I converted Http to Xttp) Xttp://dragcave.net/user/spiritsearch%5D%5BIMG%5Xttp://img124.imageshack.us/img124/8743/incubatorspiritsearch.png%5B/IMG%5D%5B/URL%5D will automatically get turned into a blue like this (Where I did NOT change Http to Xttp): http://dragcave.net/user/spiritsearch%5D%5BIMG%5Dhttp://img124.imageshack.us/img124/8743/incubatorspiritsearch.png%5B/IMG%5D%5B/URL%5D

Hi Marilyn,

Thanks! I'll fix my sig line then, uploading the images and providing links to the couple sites I was babbling about.

Thanks a bunch!! :-D

I think you can just paste a plain URL into your sig line, and then when you post it will automatically get converted into a blue Link

To put a link in your signature, go to your settings page. In the signature block, type in your copy - select the words you want to be the clickable link, then click on the little chain link icon and paste your url into the entry box. Voila your words are now clickable links.

If you only put the link itself, it does become a link that is shown by the work link. For instance, you can click here to get CNN or click on the following word: http://www.cnn.com

Edited to add: I don't use any graphics in my signature so I don't know if you can make a graphic clickable. From the settings, it looks as if you can only add the one image but I haven't tested that theory!
