    Like kindergarten or nursery-school level. I want a link in my TB signature to my MP3s. Rather than showing the address I just want it to say "My MP3s" and have that be a hyperlink to the address. I've Googled for examples and tried the one in my HTML quick study guide but the desired effect is not what I got. Please help--thanks!

    Type in "My MP3s"
    Highlight the text you just typed
    Click on the little picture of the Earth with a chain on it.
    This inserts a web link
    A prompt should come up.
    Enter in the URL (uniform resource locator, aka address)
    That should be it.

    Remember that these bulletin boards use UBB code, and not HTML. This limits how bad people can screw-up the board.
    So if you were to "code" it by hand, you would do it in a similar way to HTML, but use brackets instead of those "<" thingies.
    And instead of a href you would use the term URL.

    You don't have to be a supporting member, you just need the right syntax.

    Easy way:
    --Press the "Quote" button for this post (my reply you're reading right now).
    --Cut & paste the link you see below (everything between the 2 brackets) into the signature area where you edit your profile.

    Follow The Bass Blog!!

    To do it from scratch:
    --Copy the desired web address and click the "Insert Link" icon in the "Reply to Thread" toolbar.
    --Paste the address into the box box that pops up asking for your URL
    --Once you press "OK" your cursor will be between the two URL boxes...whatever you type here is the the clickable hyperlink that people will see.

    Nice blog, I love that 2 string bass!

    actually, you do have to be a supporting member to have links in your signature.
