Adding a signature to reviews... HOW in 2nd post

Jul 06 2015 03:01 pm   #1DeepBlueJoy
Is there a way to add a signature to the end of my reviews? 

I like to leave a link to my stories in anything I write.  When I leave it as a pure link, it just looks like i'm leaving random spam.  when I attempt to set it up to refer to a description such as 'deepbluejoy's' stories' it doesn't seem to work properly, though it works other places.  I think my sig is actually attached to my forum posts (can't remember how I formatted it, sorry)

Will try to do what I want to do here and see what happens.

Apparently, it sort of works in forum, but something about the way the reviews work is different.  I'm not an expert at html or anything else for web page design, unfortunately, I mostly do trial and error.

actually, I figured out how to do it correctly... I think it will work in the reviews too... here's how:

1) first type the text you want to link to

Test link to Blue's stories

then

2) Select that text with your mouse so it's highlighted.

THEN (without unselecting the text) select the little link symbol from the symbols at the top of the posting window (it looks a bit like a globe with a chain at the base of it).

3) Click on that. 

4) PASTE your url into the part in the link box that says URL
(the URL is the address you want the text to 'point' to and it's the part that looks like this):

http://www.tthfanfic.org/authors.php?no=12717&list=profile

(In the Link window, http is selected as protocol.  you should leave it that way)

click OK to close the LINK window.

Your text should now point to the address you have inserted and when you click on it, it should take you there.

if you did it right, your text should be BLUE and it will take you to the address you want to go to...

Test link to Blue's stories

NOTE: When you preview it, the text may not be blue, but it should link anyway.

That's it, you're done!  I was able to do it here and in my author page and signature.  I'll try it with the next review I leave and we will see if it works...

It should work. That's what the link symbol is for - adding links. I didn't realize it showed up on the review form, but if it does, then it should enable you to link to whatever you want as long as you have the url.
