Thanks, I thought it was gone till I saw that. I still don't know how to do so many things on this board. Like, how did you get that my story link there?

Well,

I used to teach comptuers, so let me butt in here and maybe I can help.

The easiest way to add a link to a post is to look below the text box and you will see two columns of buttons called Instant UBB Code. On the top of the left hand column, you see a button marked URL.

I'm assuming you have the other website open in another browser window, so you can easily cut and paste the URL.

So in the MB message posting window wack (that is the technical term) the URL button in the stack of Instant UBB Code buttons. A dialog box should appear asking you for the URL. Either copy and paste the URL into that dialog box, or for the really adventurous, just type it in by hand. So I entered by hand http://crap.com

Wack (gotta use the right terms here) the OK button and you will be prompted for a title or description of your URL. So here I enter Crap dot Com and again wack OK. Here is what I get:

Crap dot Com

And I just added a url for Crap.com <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" />

Once you do that, you will see the actual UBB code, so you can see how to enter them in by hand without the prompts. (Much quicker and more fufilling than wacking, BTW)

Oh and since you want that in your signature, once you learn the UBB code sequence (such as putting the story link in a message you post and then editing your own message to "borrow" (another technical term, we actually call it "code reuse") that UBB code to put in your signature.

To edit your signature, you have to click on the my profile link at the top of the page (make sure you are logged in or you won't have a my profile link)

Then you have to hunt for the View/Update Profile Link and finally you will see the location for your signature.

This is where you "reuse" the UBB code you generated earlier.

Again, HtH

This would be a lot easier if MB.com let us use image UBB code, I could draw pictures of how to do this <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" />

Diamonzzz,

Anytime, you know me, I always want to tell people how to do things, so take advantage of the personality trait <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" />

I know you may not be real, with this being the internet and all, but you think you could offer up some extra prayers over the next 48 hours. I'm sure my family and also the family of OM could probably use them.

Thanks,

-jC
