Deidre, in your settings/sig line, there is a little 'infinity' symbol at the top of the text box.  (Well, it's there for ALL postings....)  click that and it will open a little window where you can paste the link in.  Simply highlight the text you want to be the link, open the link window, paste in the link and click OK.  It should be there.

June, I think she want's it to say where it is going, not just the word link.

type what you want the link to show, for example you might put

My October Wish List

Next highlight this text (place your mouse at the beginning of the M then click your mouse button down and hold it down, while moving your mouse to the right. This will start coloring the text to the right of the M. Continue to hold the button and move the mouse to the right, until you get to the end of the text. Now let go and it is all highlighted (colored blue)

Next click the 4th icon from the end (1st icon in the last set) sort of looks like a link from a chain, if you have good imagination.

There you will have blank slot showing, this is where you place the Internet address for the place you want your link to take someone.

Hope that's enough, if not come back, I'll try again ;)
