Contact Methods - Website URL

Recommended Posts

This is a part of the edit profile feature - my personal website URL is truncated over 3 lines, and is not clickable (to allow a user to click on the link and go right to the site).

Is there any way that I can make this a link rather than requiring users to copy the entire 3 line URL and enter it into the address bar of a browser?

Frank, you want to go to your settings bar (click on your name on the upper right hand corner) then account settings. When you get to that page, find where it says "signature", and then click on that.

There you can edit your URL by typing whatever words you want it to say in the text box, highlighting it, then click the "chain" button in your text box (next to the U). Then, you can paste in your URL, and the editor will turn those words into HTML.

I did something similar in my signature----------I hate super long URL's frankly as I find them terrifically annoying (eBay's are the worst!).

Hope this helps------this is the only way I can explain it, and someone may have a simpler way short of showing a video. :D

Bill, I was able to do this in "my signature" and "about me", but when I copied the link to "Personal Website", the link code was automatically translated into text so that either I got "My Gallery" with no link or a 3-line truncated address. I believe that this is something a moderator would have to fix, to make this URL look at an entry as "rich text" rather than plain text. Regardless, thanks for trying!
