    I was wondering how I can get my band's website to appear in my signature as a clickable link to the site? I've seen a lot of TBers with this in their signature and would like to add it to mine.

    Or something like this. This is how it's in my signature below w/o the *'s

    Theorem homepage: [*url="http://www.theoremnyc.com"*][*color=blue*][*b*]CLICK HERE[*/b*][*/color*][*/url*]


    Or you could make the Band name a Clickable link:
    [*url="http://www.theoremnyc.com"*][*color=blue*][*b*]THEOREM HOMEPAGE[*/b*][*/color*][*/url*]

    Will look like:

    THEOREM HOMEPAGE

    On the other hand, too much colour and it could look garish :rolleyes: :D

    Thanks guys! I played around with some of those "garish" colors, but I've decided to stick with good ole blue. Now.....go check out the site! :D

    Nice looking site (although personally I could live without the entrance page - just take me straight to the site).

    Now you've just got to let it grow - I'm much happier with the work I've done on my band's website now that we've got regular news on the front (using a Blog - very convenient), a number of future dates and photos and recordings from previous gigs. Rather than being a skeleton, the site's coming alive!

    Hope you see a similar thing with yours over the next few months.

    Cheers,

    Wulf
