Ravelry link in signature
Hi there!

I'm new to the forum and am trying to do the link to Ravelry in my signature. I have the tag, and have uploaded it to my signature. I cannot for the life of me determine how to get it to be clickable. I did a search in the archives and can find nothing more recent than 2010 and none of the instructions helped me. I'm totally stumped!
I would be so grateful for any help!

thank you in advance!

You motivated me to try adding a link. What I did: Copy/pasted the name of the link, highlighted it, clicked on the globe with chain links above the input box, pasted in the URL, clicked OK. Voila! a clickable link. Sometimes you have to have a certain number of posts before a forum will allow things like a clickable link, I don't know if that's the policy here. Have you checked the list of Signature Permissions below your input box? Mine has this: Allow Link BBCode Yes which I think means I can include a link. HTH and thanks for asking and getting me to do mine.

ETA: Where are my manners? Hi and Welcome!

I'll have to see if I can find the info. I'll be back.

Here's the buttons. Save one to your computer if you want to do it this way.

We've just moved to a new server so the old info isn't valid for linking that I found. What you do though is put the pic in your signature then click it so it's selected. Then paste the link you want (Your Ravelry projects). Click the paperclip to paste the link. At least I think that is how it works. Try that.

Yeah. I noticed that too. Hold on.

EDIT: Its now working. Had to tweak a few things. What I did was I uploaded one of the button pics that is found in the link provided earlier in this thread, then I added it to my signature, then I selected the BBcode that you'll see in the box where you create the signature, and then clicked the linking icon option and pasted the link into the option box, then clicked the "Okay". Now I have a clickable image that is linked to my Raverly profile.
