    Ding Ding Ding....this was the point I was about to make. I think that something happened in the process of adding the new mods. I would assume that there is a setting for either allowing hyperlinks in signatures or allowing use of the "URL" BBcodes in signatures. If only we knew a mod who could change one of those settings...;)

    I honestly have never been a mod so I have no clue what options do or don't exist...just a thought.

    Unfortunately, only Josh can has that sort of access. As far as I know the new mods have very limited permissions.

    I have emailed Josh asking if it would be possible to set the signature box so that people can put their collections in a hyperlink or even a dropdown box so we shall see what he can do.

    We don't use signatures on the CAD forums here at work, but if i recall it should be similar to allowing codes in the actual posts, just check the boxes for what can be done in the sigs, but that could be dependant on what flavor or version of phpbb is being used.

    @Scoolman if you want a whack at mine (again :D) go for it. If we can make it the way it is now, but with "Click!" for the link that'd be perfect.

    Never mind :p you already did it lol :D thanks!!

    Should be on my signature now. Please note, already have a spoiler thanks to Kymura, but if you can also get links to work that will be great.

    they need to fix permissions , so folks can put up hyperlinks without aggravating a mod to do it.

    @Scoolman - would you be able to help me too? I have tried BB and HTML coding and I can't seem to get it to work. I would like it to be like your link - without the address being separated and left justified.
