how to put url in sig line

I just literally wrote in the address devoid of HTML formatting and it automatically made it into a link.

Hope this helps!

Rob

Not sure that this is really

Not sure that this is really quite appropriate, especially as it's a members only link, looks as though you're trawling for member count!

Hugo,

Where can I find the guidelines for what can be included in a signature?

anotherhoward don't worry

anotherhoward don't worry about it, they're no definitive guidelines as such and I have had no feedback on the subject so am disinclined to care further.

My original problem was that:
A: it's would generally be slightly cheeky promoting another help resource
B: That's it's a member only link, you have to sign up for an account.

Please replace your sig link if you so wish, my opinion is just that and it was not an instruction to remove it.

Hugo.

Still curious

Thanks Hugo.

I'm still curious how to place a link in a signature. For example, if this were my signature, "Validate your CSS," what should I do if I want "Validate" to be the link to a validator such as http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/?
