    Can we do a how to on how to link your build on your signature for those like me that don't know how to?

    I searched but could not find this information and I can't figure out how to make the link and then make it say what I want it to say like: My X or whatever else instead of the actual long address thingy.

    LINK how to
    1. Copy your build page address
    2. Type what you would like the link to say "Jmac's build or what ever"
    3. Scroll over that title. Like your were going to copy the "Jmac's build"[​IMG]

    4. See the blue and green world with the chain link?[​IMG]
    With your "Jmac's build still highlighted.. Hit that globe and paste your build page link in the pop up box[​IMG]
    5. Hit ok.. and the link is now how ever you typed your Build

    Test to see if my link comes up on new post cause I still don't see it on my old ones.

    That is strange...so it showed up here so does that mean all my old post will not have it on there?

    at least the link works! I feel like it'll refresh eventually and get all of your older posts

    so, the tag looks like this "{url="link"}TEXT{/url}" change the text between the {url="link"} and the {/url} to whatever you want the link address to say....
