Link to logbook in signature - doesn't work

Post by johnlvs2run » September 3rd, 2018, 8:35 pm

Whenever I try to add the following link in my signature, the code remains visible, and the link doesn't work.

Code: Select all

[url=https://log.concept2.com/log]logbook[/url]
How can I get it to work?

You're not wrapping the [URL=xxx]...[/URL] tags in [code]...[/code] tags are you?

The Twitter URL in my signature works.

No. I just did that so the bbcode would show up in my post.

The code works fine in a post, like this: logbook, but not in the signature.

This is how I put it - with no space: [ url=https://log.concept2.com/log]logbook[/url]

What's the exact URL you want in your signature?

I'll ask PaulH to fix it if you can give me that.

John - My guess is that you had the 'disable BBCode' box checked, which would stop it from working. Anyway, it looks like it's working now

Hi Paul,

Under the smilies, it says the "BBCode is ON" and "[url] is ON," so I don't know what the issue is.

Thanks much for your help.

Yes, and no but that might be a good idea.

That's what it does for me too. It takes you to the log where you're signed in.
