How Do You Add Links to Your Build Logs Under Your Signature


Recommended Posts

I would like to add a link to my build log under my signature but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. Many forum members have links that look like this, for example: Medway Longboat and all you have to do is click on it and it takes you to their build log. Thanks very much.

Under the drop down tab at your user name select account settings then the tab named signature.  

A text box opens up and you can add whatever signature you want.  

Highlight the text you want to link and proceed as normal to link the specific page.

Hey, Bob. Next to your username in the upper right corner is a drop-down menu. Click the "account settings" options, then look for "signature" in the left-hand side bar menu. That's where you can edit your signature. Please note that our guidelines suggest a limit of four lines of text in signatures (which, obviously, a lot of members have forgotten or overlooked).

 

Cheers!

Thanks Michael and Chris. I got it! I was getting tripped up because I couldn't get my build log link to open while in I was in the signature set up box. Of course, since I hadn't saved the changes to my signature yet...well, of course, it wouldn't be active yet....duh!! 🥴

Thanks. Just what I was looking for.

Sorry but I'm not getting it. I understand how to use the settings to modify my signature but I can't figure out how to link to one of my build logs - the guidance above just says to "proceed as normal to link the specific page". How do I do that?

Thanks

 

Added for you. I hope that's ok.

What does "proceed as normal to link the specific page" mean?  One member posted this and all I see is that James posted this?

Is there something that James flipped in his profile?  I use Chrome.  I see MS has shown that there is a "Link" option for Edge,  Is that related to the solution?

 

Thanks...John

To put a webpage link into your post you:

 

1  type what you want for example

 

Check out our club Shipwrights of Ohio

 

2  highlight the words you want to link

3  goto the tool bar at the top of the post and select the icon that looks like 2 links of a chain

4  after you highlight the word and then hit the link (chain icon) you get a pop up

5  now copy/paste your webpage url into the space

6  then hit the button insert into post

 

 

7 now your post (and/or signature block) should have those words underlined and you will see the weblink if you hover over it.

Michael,

 

I want to setup this link in my signature.  This works if you are replying to a post.  But in the signature setting page, the "chain" icon does not appear.  Follow you instructions to see where I'm screwing up.

 

I'm disappointed that I keep failing to  get this figured out.  I spent 45 years it IT and know how to work around operating systems and mainstream apps.  Help me out here, buddy.

 

John

Hmmm... if I go to my icon at the top of the page (on a PC).. tap the little down arrow, I can pick "Settings".   Inside of Settings on the left side is "Signature" which looks like the pic below.  I've circled the chain icon which is in a different place than then in reply to a post.  Clicking the "chain" opens a pop-up for you to enter the URL of the link and the link name.
