Do you mean like this? Correct me if I have the wrong thing entirely, but the code for this is:

[url=insertlinkhere]insertwordshere[/url]

You can also use the link button, and this works anywhere on the forum.

Spycatcher, can you handle some constructive criticism?

 

The first 4 are very hard to see. The last one cannot be seen at all.

 

Changing the colors would be very helpful to all. It would also help to distinguish the text as actual links. I'm  more likely to click links if text is easily seen and readable. If it's not I ignore it.

No problem, glad I could help :thumbsup:

 

The colours are certainly readable after you changed them.

It would be better if you didn't use colors at all, so as to conform to the forum rules: Links in your signature must be unobtrusive and can not use formatting so that attention is brought to them.

Thank you for informing me! I should've checked with the forum rules before I began. I've just read it and will adjust my signature.

If you have any questions about anything else all you have to do is ask.
