    Hypertext in signature

    I was wondering how to create a hypertext in my signature to link to my build thread. I’ve seen it but not sure how to do it.

    J,

    I would assume that you just go to the build thread and copy the title that is right below the +Reply to Thread button and select copy shortcut.. and paste it into your signature.

    Just like this link is to this thread... Hypertext in signature

    Please let us know if that does not work, so I can get someone that knows what they are talking about..

    Thanks,

    Jim R.

    It's the same as in a Post field:

    - Type the word you want to be shown as a link.
    - Select the word.
    - Click the Link button in the tool bar of the Edit Signature field. It looks like a globe with a couple of chain links.
    - Type or paste the destination URL into the resulting dialog box.

    Jim's method will also work, but you won't get to control how the link reads. Instead, the system will pick up the title of the linked webpage and display that.

    Build Thread

    Thank you Jim and Dirk! But now I have another problem, for some reason I don't have the LINK button for my signature.

    Maybe I have a setting wrong??

    I interface with TFP in a laptop web browser. What are you using? My interface looks like this. The link buttons (make and delete) are last in the second row:

    No Link button. Perhaps you have to have a certain number of posts before they enable it. Some forums do that.

    Huh, sorry for the inaccurate instructions. Could be a "TFP Guide" thing...

    Let me visit this shortly. The furnace is out at the house so I’ve gotta get a fire going to warm up the place. At 58° inside the family ain’t moving very fast.

    For now you should be able to add this to your signature. You’ll likely need to remove some current text however as your signature is kinda long already.

    Should result in this,

    Thanks Lee for looking into it! I can condense it. For some reason I just don’t have the Link icon for my signature.

    Re: Hypertext in signature

    Do you have the Link buttons when you're making a post? Or are they missing everywhere?

    I have the Link buttons when I'm posting or replying. They just aren't there for my signature.

    Lee will get you sorted out... or at least explain what is going on...

    Just copy the [URL=... line that Leebo posted, paste it in your signature, and go look at your signature on a thread. The link will be there! I too do not have a link button in my edit signature box (at least on my phone) but it clearly says I have permission for BBcode links in my signature. If I type a BBcode link manually (which Leebo did for you) then it becomes a link in my signature. I did
    [U*RL=www.google.com]test[/U*RL] (only without those two stars inside the URL)

    Which became a link to Google called "test". Like so: test

    That's all the link botton does, behind the scenes. Just wrapped the BBcode URL tags around your text and link. In fact if you quote this post you'll see the actual URL tags instead of the link!

    Re: Hypertext in signature

    For Leebo's troubleshooting, I find it interesting that I have a similar, but slightly different set of buttons on my mobile signature edit page. For example, I have a link remove button the OP doesn't have (but no link button).Attachment 88877

    Jseyfert3,

    Thanks for your help! I knew there was a way to manually do it but I didn’t know how. Appreciate it very much.
