Full Version: Including an active link in your signature (Sticky)

I haven't tried it in a signature, but in regular posts if you leave out the HTML and just put the URL, with the http part, the forum converts it to a link. Like this:

http://cee.innovativetestenvironment.com

You left out the words at the end that are supposed to show up on the screen. It must be followed by the close 'a'
quote:
</a>
also

In other words after what you posted type
This will show up as the link. </a>

Harvey,

OK I tried this twice and no luck what am I doing wrong?

This is what I am entering:

<a href="http://cemlasers.com"> </a>

Is this right?

Do you check the box that states using HTML?

You need some text between the two parts of the tag. After the first ">" and before the "</a>". That tesxt is what people actually see. They don't see the link itself. So you might want:

<a href="http://cemlasers.com">CEM Lasers</a>

Also, be sure to check the little "contains HTML" checkbox in the lower right of the signature box.

Since everybody else seems to have a sig, I decided to add one too. ;-)

Dave,

Thanks for your help now lets see if it worked

Yup.

Also, be aware that with HTML, you can add line feeds by using a <br> tag anywhere within your text (such as before the address)

One last thing any critique on the website would be appreciated. We should be going live any time now.
