Hi,
When I go to my profile, it says that HTML is OFF, BBCode is ON, and Smilies are ON. Lower down there are radio buttons to alter all these, but only the BBCode and Smilies buttons have an effect. I'd like to alter my sig to have a 'proper' link to my website, ie:
Code:
<a href='http://www.in2faces.co.uk' target='_blank'>Face Painting in Wiltshire - In2Faces</a>

But if I try this, I just get the actual HTML, not the 'interpreted' code. How do I change this please?

Where is says BBCode ON, BBCode is a link to instructions on using BBCode, including details of how to add a link. It is the same syntax that you use to add a link to a message, like this.

Ah, but if your avatar is anything to go by, I'll see you a mile off Smile

Oh, and the location of LXF Towers is top secret! Forget that address in the mag -- our location is classified, and on Ordnance Survey maps it's just blank...

Yeah? In that case why did I see Nick having a 'meeting' down at the Crystal Palace some time ago. Hmm, perhaps *that's* the real location.

Nah, he was just one from the army of Nick-lookalikes we have, in order to keep the main man safe and secure. Nick himself has left LXF Towers only once in five years -- and that was to collect a distro that fell out the window.

People who look like flowers shouldn't comment on people who wear makeup.
If you'r not careful, I'll ask why Evil Nick picked you for the job.
