Links in signature?
« on: January 10, 2017, 05:39:04 am »
How do people post links in their signature? I can't get it to work with BBCode...
I'd like to link to my SoundCloud and YouTube...

I have added a Youtube link in your signature - see if it works and check to see how I entered it.

It won't let me change the URL. I tried changing it into http://bit.ly/marcosings (YouTube Song videos) and I wanted to also add my SoundCloud (https://soundcloud.com/marco-van-hylckama-vlieg) but it keeps telling me I'm using BBCode tags that aren't allowed...

Thanks! There must be some weird forum permissions issue though. When I go to my profile now and I change NOTHING but try to save it says:

The following errors occurred when trying to save your profile:
The following BBC is not allowed within your signature: acronym, bdo, blue, br, code, color, flash, font, ftp, glow, green, html, img, iurl, left, li, list, ltr, me, move, nobbc, php, pre, red, right, rtl, s, shadow, size, sub, sup, table, td, time, tr, tt, u, cloudset, white, spoiler.

It's like you have forum permissions that allow you to put that in my profile but I don't. Do I need a certain amount of posts before being allowed to do it or is it an actual bug?

Not sure without digging around. ???

Do you see the two links in your sig?Clickable red links?
They should read:

I see them. It's just that YOU can add / edit / change them and I cannot. And therefore others probably can't either. Unless there's some post limit. I'll keep trying as I get more posts :)
