Default Signature length (?)

Signature text length....

Any way to allow it to have longer text length within URLs? I don't want to have a tome for the signature, but I would like to add another line, with a URL to the build thread on MUD, and I currently can't.

Is it limited to 4 lines, or # of characters? If characters, try using a shorter label in the link tags:

Replacing the Braces with Brackets in this:
{URL="http://www.ih8mud.com"}CLICK{/URL}

Will result in this:

Yeah good tip Ian. Use that little "insert link" icon as you highlight stuff in your sig, then just link those words elsewhere. Example:

Dan's 40. 3B Turbo project, and Dan's 60.

Dan, advice above is solid. If you do prefer to post URLs instead of linked words, you could also use a URL shortener:

Very good. That explains why I've had issues. I have just typed the BBcode with the braces, and interestingly enough it clearly processes that differently than if I were to use the link icon to do the same.

Thanks guys!

To be clear, the actual code should use brackets, not curly braces. It should look like the image I have attached below.

The result will look like this:
1976 HJ-45 (needs restoration)

It may be that the link icon doesn't work correctly in the sig line edit window, but if you use the code it should work fine.

No idea, I thought I had tried that previously.

Problem solved though. Much cleaner looking.
