    How do you

    put a url in your signature line?

    I've seen quite a few in signature lines but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to do it so that it isn't as long as I am tall! Most people have the tag line "blog" and when you click it, it'll take you to the persons blog.

    How do you get the short version? I can't find it.

    Thanks for the information.

    Scratch that. One second.

    I think you double hyperlinked it.

    Remove and try again.

    Take off the "" of the front and the "" of the rear. (If you can see the code in the message box)

    Though, I have no idea why you're linking that for a writing forum. Whatever.
