    problem with adding link to signature

    I'm trying to add a link to my blog on my signature and its not showing up. I've using the insert link button and it doesn't work either.

    Help?

    P.S. Also, how to I add a quote to my signature? This is a quote from another user on a comment they made to me and have given permission to me to use it

    Thanks

    To place a quote in your sig: just go to the user control panel, click edit signature> Paste in the quote> Click save.

    Posting a link. If you want to embed it under a word, highlight the word, click the link button, and enter the url into the entry box that pops u;p and then click OK. If you enter the URL directly into the text box as http://www ....., it will automatically be a link.

    Hi Tom,

    I tried all of that and it didn't work so I didn't know if it was because I hadn't had enough forum posts or something..I will try again but could you check my account setting too if you are able too

    I went in and did a little reformatting for you so it would fit in the space requirements and display as a traditional URL. I'll see if I can figure out why it won't work as an embedded link, too, but this will work for now.

    Hi Tom,
    I am trying to add a quote from another BF'er too. I want not only the quote but the box around the quote along with the original composer of said quote. I notice many BF'ers that do this. I've tried copying the properties and pasting them but am not sure if this is correct, or if I need to add any [info] to either side etc. Please advise. Thank you, Mike

    See? It is showing up as a link and NOT the actual verbiage. Any suggestions?

    Intriguing map. How long would that take? My inability to no longer make a hotlink in Edit Signature is my proximal issue.

    Lot's Knife, I think only paid members can have links and graphics in their signatures.
