Signature display problems

Postby Wolf Goddess » Thu Mar 17, 2011 6:52 am

I cannot get my signature line to display properly. The HTML tags show. It's supposed to look like this.

Signature lines don't seem to be working right now. I think they were turned off for new users to prevent spammers from showing their links, but anyone who changes signatures or tries to add them, it doesn't work (I've tried, too).

Ahh, I'm glad I didn't add in a previous response to you, "What's up with your siggy? Need help?" :)

I guess mine is grandfathered in.

I thought I was grandfathered in too. Mine was working but then it stopped. It must have been when I changed it. :cry:
So now I have modified it so it looks readable.

Yes, only new users should be blocked from posting links. You should be able to make a new signature. I will look into it. When you made the changes to your profile did you see any sort of warning message?

Alex, when I try and make a change, I click on "Preview" and it doesn't give a warning, but doesn't create an HTML link.

I also made the mistake of trying to change my signature links, and now they won't work. It just shows the BB code as Wolf Goddess said.

When I go in to edit my sig there are three little check boxes as below:

Disable BBCode
Disable smilies
Do not automatically parse URLs

The first one and the third one are automatically checked, and won't stay unchecked if I try to change them. But I get no warning message.

You must try URL or BBCode link. Convert your html link into bbcode link and then put it in signature section and then check. Hope it will work.
