How make a clickable link?

Hello, I wanted to put a clickable link in my signature, on this forum, but didn't know how to do it. I would like the text and the URL it points to be different. I hope this is the right section to put this in...

I tried the <a href="link">text</a> but it showed up just as you see it here.

thanks

    Hello Uglijimus,

    It may have been better to put this in the Forum Feedback, But I guess nothing really fits the bill perfectly.

    To make a Hidden Link or URL Behind Text (I dont know the correct term) try using the insert URL on Tom's Forums and then paste it into you Sig.

    EDIT - I have tested this method and it works 100% perfectly!


    Just as an example I'll use Tom's Home Page:


    Which should look like this: http://www.tomshardware.com/us/

    Now look at the end of the URL where there is: ]

    In between the ][ , ]Type the text you want here[ , ]Toms Hardware[

    So it will look like this Toms Hardware


    Side Note - You can use the Test Posts section in the Forum Feedback @ the very bottom of Toms Forum Page.

    **I am truly Sorry if this does not work as I am trying to test it now but my Sig is not showing up, I will update when I get it sorted out.**

  4. Hello Uglijimus,

    Glad to see you got it working.

    Its no problem, I didnt know how to do this a month ago and I had to do some searching the web to figure it out, so when I saw your question I was glad to be able to share my new found knowledge. :)
