     I was just reading a forum post where the first person asked what books people are currently reading.  I  noticed several people that responded have links added to their forum posts for the particular book.  I clicked on one and it brought me to a PBS page with all the info about the book like I had done a search.  It also included reviews.  How do I go about doing that?  I looked in the Help Section but couldn't find anything.  I would appreciate help with this.

It's easy!  Just copy-paste a URL into your signature line, and it'll show up as the blue italicized underilned Link button.  I'm not sure yet how to change it to whatever words you want (unless you copy and paste an existing blue link line, like the ones in the help center or book titles), but I'm working on figuring that out too :)

edit: Ok...to place a link (in your signature as well as in forum posts) and have the link go where you want AND say what you want, what you do is: Copy the desired URL.  Above forum post and signature fields, in the toolbar, find the Link button (looks like chainlinks) and click it, paste your URL where it says to, and click OK.  Then highlight the link you've created and change the text to whatever you'd like. 

Hope that made sense :)
